Two college students from Columbia college of art and design are creating quite a mess, but not in the literal way, they are being talked about in the entire school.they dont steal or cheat, instead they create a creative riot , they call themself Dangerdust and every week they sneak into a classroom and create a masterpiece out of nothing but chalk.

Don’t ever say I’m not a man of my word again.

"A quarter of high schools with the highest percentage of black and Latino students do not offer Algebra II; a third of these schools do not offer chemistry. Fewer than half of American Indian and Native-Alaskan high school students have access to the full range of math and science courses in their high school"

When people don’t understand why Black students/people are not in STEM majors/fields

Understand we are not afforded all of the same opportunities. We are not given all the same chances.

It is not because Black students are “lazy” or “stupid”, it is not because Black students only want things handed out to us, it is not because we are more focused on material things.

I attended and taught (at the same time) at one of these schools that didn’t have Algebra, chemistry, biology, Trig etc. This was a high school. 

Understand that because “education” is offered and is “free”, it does not mean that the student is actually receiving education.

Robin Thicke is unapologetic about how rapey ‘Blurred Lines’ is, meanwhile the dude who parodied it issues a public apology for one word.

And that is just one reason why I love Weird Al.

Note how Weird Al doesn’t make songs mocking fat people anymore either. It’s almost like people are capable of learning and changing their behavior for the better.
