”What if Superman grew up as a black boy in America?”
Written by D. Verrtah, Marcus Smith (Behind The Lens), Russell Hamilton (Multimedia), King Texas (Creative Director) and myself, Renata Cherlise (Creative Director and Creator of Lost in Urbanism + Sunday Kinfolk)
While staring in the face of racism, this story follows a young man’s journey as he comes to terms with his identity. As we extract events from America’s history and weave them with fictional undertones, we explore the truth behind his mother’s legacy, his father’s affiliation with the movement and the makings of a black superhero.
This montage sets the climate for an upcoming Sunday Kinfolk story and multimedia production. As the story spans several generations and eras, we have several roles to fill. No experience necessary, just creative passion.
Visit Sunday Kinfolk to get additional information on casting and creative collaborations with this project.
* Production will take place in Metropolis (Chicago)
cool and relevant ppt presentation but jsyk, the term “ethnic cleansing” is a gross euphemism for “genocide”.
THIS. Thank you. This isn’t a “conflict,” this isn’t a complex issue. I was discussing it with a friend earlier - if you want to put this into perspective, view it as the modern day creation of the United States. What could only complicate this, is that it’s condoned legally and promoted through state-sponsored programs.
I don’t usually care for these 101 presentations on tumblr but this one gives a good summaryis this enough information for you?
Please watch and share this video, an accurate historical lesson on the bloody history of Israel, produced by a Jewish peace foundation.
Blindly spewing hate on one side without the knowledge to substantiate it is pointless. I 100% support the notion of Israel as a state and safe haven for its inhabitants, and as a refuge for Holocaust survivors.
But there’s not a single ounce of me that’ll stand by the way it was attained. The UN and World Powers like Great Britain which had mandates on Palestinian land, due to European imperialism, literally carved up the homes of an indigenous people, and relabeled it as a safe place for Holocaust survivors to “return to.”
They redrew borders and demolished homes in order to make way for their own agenda. And it’s validated by Jewish Zionist beliefs that this land is their divine right, promised to Prophets Abraham and Jacob by God in the Torah - a book that’s over 3 millennia old. At this rate, the Zionist agenda is no different from America’s Manifest Destiny and slaughter of our indigenous populations.
I’m so sick and tired of American “Zionists” playing victim and crying because their support for the mass murder of innocent men, women and children is not validated by the masses. Of American teenagers raised by conservative Jewish parents who instilled in them the ideals that what Israel is doing is necessary. That it is imperative. That it is their divine right. This intrinsic Zionist sense of entitlement makes me so, so sick.
Israel is not your “promised land.” Israel is not your divine right.
Over 105 Palestinians have been murdered in the last 3 days, and 785 civilians are injured, and not a single Israeli soul has been harmed. Instead, they’re flocking to cliff-sides in Sderot, miles away from Gaza to celebrate the dropping of bombs on Palestinian homes.
We have Zionists crying because the actions of their mother country are not being validated by the masses on social networks.
We have one of the most persecuted peoples of the 20th century, doing what was done onto them.
We have American, Zionist-owned newspapers headlining articles watering down this vile ethnic cleansing, the NY Times reporting “Israel and Palestine Exchange Fire.”
No, no people. Israel vs. Palestine is not a war. It is a contemporary genocide. It is a violation on every single unalienable human right we are born in the western world with. Support the oppressed and identify the oppressor. These dogs need to account for their actions.

"Dr. King’s policy was that nonviolence would achieve the gains for black people in the United States. His major assumption was that if you are nonviolent, if you suffer, your opponent will see your suffering and will be moved to change his heart. That’s very good.
He only made one fallacious assumption: In order for nonviolence to work, your opponent must have a conscience. The United States has none.”
What, to the American slave, is your Fourth of July?
I answer: a day that reveals to him, more than all other days in the year, the gross injustice and cruelty to which he is the constant victim. To him, your celebration is a sham; your boasted liberty, an unholy license; your national greatness, swelling vanity; your sounds of rejoicing are empty and heartless; your denunciation of tyrants, brass-fronted impudence; your shouts of liberty and equality, hollow mockery; your prayers and hymns, your sermons and thanksgivings, with all your religious parade and solemnity, are, to Him, mere bombast, fraud, deception, impiety, and hypocrisy-a thin veil to cover up crimes which would disgrace a nation of savages.
There is not a nation of savages. There is not a nation on the earth guilty of practices more shocking and bloody than are the people of the United States at this very hour."
