This weekend in Richmond, white supremacists apparently associated with Kyle Hunt’s “White Man March” snuck into people’s yards and left Easter eggs filled with racist propaganda for their children to find. This is not satire. Someone- a group or individual- in Richmond was sneaking around the West End on Sunday planting Easter eggs with racist notes inside.
Because it occurred in a predominantly white neighborhood, we can assume that this instance of trespassing in people’s yards to leave items for their unsuspecting children to find was just a stupidly ham-handed attempt at outreach, and not an attempt at spreading terror.
Henrico County police are seeking information about the perpetrators. We’ve contacted their office and asked to be alerted if any new information becomes available, and will communicate it here.
This is just the most recent incident in the rising tide of white supremacist and fascist activity in and around Richmond. Keep an eye out, and stay safe.
Food not bombs is bottomlining a cookout after the May day parade this year. But we could really use help from community organizations. We have compiled a list of food items we hope other groups can bring out. We also are encouraging you to bring signs, banners, literature, and friends! The plan for the day (Thursday May 1) is as follows:
2 - meet at Abner Clay Park in Jackson ward
2:30 - Leave park and start the parade led by All Saints Theater.
3:30-4 arrive in Monroe Park for a potluck cookout and rally. There will also hopefully be bands and various organizations tabling and periodic speakers. We plan to hang out until dark or everyone gets full and tired.
We are organizing May Day in solidarity with Fast Food Workers fighting for $15 and more rights, the struggle against a Shockoe Stadium, and the struggle against the privatization of Monroe Park.
We are focusing May day on Monroe Park this year because since City Council leased the park to a private organization last week we are very concerned about it’s future and potentially threats to Food Not Bombs’ 20+ year legacy in the park, free speech and protests in the park, and the many low income and homeless people who use the park regularly.
Here is a list of food items we think would go well with the cookout potluck. But feel free to improvise or bring a personal favorite to share. If you can, drop us a line so we know what you are bringing! We plan on having veggie dogs and popsicles and water coolers as a bare minimum.
We could also use several charcoal grills if you can bring one let us know!!!
Ideas to bring:
- Drink mixes
- Meat for grilling
- Hot dog buns
- Corn on the cob
- baked beans- vegetarian
- potato salad
- salads, coleslaw
- veggie burgers/ burgers???
Please share this information with members of your organization and other organizations. We would love to see a huge turnout so we can stake our claim on the streets and parks of Richmond, and enjoy eachothers company as we celebrate the legacy of Worker’s Rights and Organizing!

i feel like this study deserves an article written about it that ends pushing for cheaper tuition costs rather than one that ends encouraging students to major in things that make money

The real world.
This is from That’s So Raven, where Chelsea and Raven apply to work at the same clothing shop. Chelsea is white; Raven is black. Chelsea gets the job, despite being utterly horrible at it, while Raven, who has a deep interest in fashion and knows how to handle clothes, does not. The girls find this deeply suspicious, so Chelsea wears a hat with a camera on it and questions the employer. The employer admits what she does in the gif above and Chelsea and Raven submit the footage to a news station.
And THAT is why That’s So Raven is the best TV show ever.
That’s not even the only reason why it was the best show ever
"We are very saddened to learn of the passing of Mabel Williams, the legendary African-American activist, who, with her husband Robert F. Williams, fought for and carried out the right of armed self-defense against the vicious attacks of the Ku Klux Klan, militantly represented the liberation struggle of her people during exile in Cuba, China, and Africa, and continued her active lifelong engagement in social justice struggles upon their return to the US.
Mabel Williams was born June 1, 1931 and transitioned Saturday, April 19th, 2014 at her family’s home in Detroit. There will be a Saturday homegoing in Detroit on April 26th, 2014 and she will be returned to Monroe, North Carolina shortly thereafter according to her son John Williams.
The Freedom Archives is honored to be able to offer these audio and video selections as a special tribute to Mabel Williams—the legendary African-American freedom fighter who we’ve had the good fortune to work closely with on several documentaries and events. Mabel Williams has made lifelong contributions in her own right and this needs to be recognized and celebrated. Yes, she was the lifelong comrade and companion of her justly famous husband Robert F. Williams—and she was with him every step of their courageous way—in Monroe North Carolina where, as NAACP leaders, they and other activists organized for racial equality and dramatized the right of self-defense against the vicious attacks of the Ku Klux Klan—with Mabel defending her home, Robert, and her two sons with shotgun and determination.
While she often downplayed her role, Mabel, among many other activities, illustrated and wrote articles for their influential newsletter The Crusader, narrated and selected music for their radio program from Cuba, “Radio Free Dixie,” collaborated on the famous book, Negroes with Guns, was a strong voice for her people in Canada, Cuba, Mexico, Moscow, China, Japan, Vietnam, Europe, and Africa, and met with revolutionary leaders, such as Fidel Castro, Ho Chi Minh, and Mao Zedong,
There could be no more fitting tribute than to highlight this woman whose militant anti-racist internationalism is powerfully expressed in her lifetime of dedicated energy around the world, then returning again to the Empire from which they had been exiled, and where she continued her social activism. We hope these selections from programs of the Freedom Archives and from an interview by Walter Turner on his radio program “Africa Today” provide insight into the lasting liberation legacy of Mabel Williams.”
