    and wisdom on the day that it begins not just to tolerate, but take
    a special delight in differences in ideas and differences in life forms.” - Gene Rodenberry

    There are people who miss golden opportunities.

    And then there is George Takei.

    So my brother futurecoolin just copped the game Destiny last week and watching him play i’ve noticed the game looks really cool.

    One of the things I really like is the diversity in the game cast as well as the types of characters you can make.

    The top image is the Warlock Vanguard- Ikora Rey voiced by Gina Torres btw and the other two are characters he made using their character customization feature. 

    Though the customization is a bit limited at the moment it still has some really nice variations of facial features and skin tones which makes it possible to make a character that looks black. I dig that quite a bit.

    This year, The AfroFuturist Affair Annual Charity & Costume Ball has expanded space-time from one evening to a month-long celebration of Afrofuturism.  In addition to the 4th Annual Costume Ball on Saturday, November 8 2014, we will have events throughout November, including workshops, dance party, readings, book club, film screenings, art exhibit, and more. We are seeking self-identified AfroFuturists to perform or display their Black sci-fi, spec-fic, and Afrofuturistic themed work at the Ball. We are also seeking submissions for workshops and presentations.

    We need: Authors, Poets, Inventors, Vocalists, Rappers, Visual artists, Performance artists, Filmmakers, Dancers, Designers, Musicians, Magicians, Producers, Metaphysicians, other creatives/creators

    Deadline to submit: Sunday, October 5 2014

    This month we will explore the theme of Black Holographic Memory, the collective unconscious memory of Black folk through all permutations of space-time. Like a hologram, each individual contains the whole of the collective memory - we must simply learn how to access it.  We appreciate afrofuturistic and speculative works that incorporate this theme or hints at ways to access the memory hologram (however you interpret it).

    To share your ideas, talents, and proposed performances for inclusion in this year’s celebrations, please email afrofuturistaffair@gmail.com by October 5, 2014 with the below info, and “Charity Ball” in the subject line.

    Occupy abolishes $4 million in other people’s student loan debt | CNN

    After forgiving millions of dollars in medical debt, Occupy Wall Street is tackling a new beast: student loans.

    Marking the third anniversary of the Occupy Wall Street movement, the group’s Strike Debt initiative announced Wednesday it has abolished $3.8 million worth of private student loan debt since January. It said it has been buying the debts for pennies on the dollar from debt collectors, and then simply forgiving that money rather than trying to collect it.

    In total, the group spent a little more than $100,000 to purchase the $3.8 million in debt.

    While the group is unable to purchase the majority of the country’s $1.2 trillion in outstanding student loan debt because it is backed by the federal government, private student debt is fair game.

    This debt Occupy bought belonged to 2,700 people who had taken out private student loans to attend Everest College, which is run byCorinthian Colleges. Occupy zeroed in on Everest because Corinthian Colleges is one of the country’s largest for-profit education companies and has been in serious legal hot water lately.

    Following a number of federal investigations, the college told investors this summer that it plans to sell or close its 107 campuses due to financial problems — potentially leaving its 74,000 students in a lurch.

    So I went to see The Boxtrolls today having been very excited about all of the publicity, the general theme of the film, and all of the posters I saw of what appeared to be same gender families.

    I left the cinema in tears because of it. It’s very…

    This is… Upsetting. I’m upset. When this was explained to me without reading the whole thing, I thought ‘Oh gosh nah this doesn’t sound too bad I’m sure I can manage it’ and then I read it and I am so fucking distressed.

    I was really looking forward to this movie. Like, really looking forward to it. I might still see it, when I can get it from Netflix, but this makes me so fucking sad I want to fucking cry. Like. No. I want to see one fucking movie that doesn’t make me feel like a fucking freak for shits and giggles. Do you understand how hard that is? I literally am constantly afraid that something I watch will make a trans joke. I am constantly afraid that someone will say a slur just because it’s so damn funny.

    Guess what? I was watching the Shrek musical a long while back with my primary, and we were generally giggling at how shitty it was. Then, halfway through I think the second song, the Wolf says the words ‘hot t****y mess’. All the giggling stopped. That, too, is based on a children’s film. 

    What the fuck is wrong with the world? I want to fucking die the more I see this shit because goddammit it’s really clear that I’m not fucking welcome in the world of these cisgendered fucks.

    I’m sorry for all of this, I’m aware it’s a big long rant and not quite related to the original post, but I’m so fucking tired of it and I’m just… I’m exhausted. Being in this fucking culture constantly guarding myself for the next time something or someone I like is going to remind me how much of a fucking abomination I am. 

    I hate the society that makes me feel this way. I hate everyone who defends it.Do you want to know why? It’s because you make me hate myself.

    Thank you and sorry to anyone who bothered to read this mess of a rant. I’m just so angry and so sad and so hurt and I am crying and I want this fucking bullshit to never come back again.
