universalequalityisinevitable:

Dr. James Gilligan on crime, revenge, and punishment, from this video.

"We often think of crime and punishment… as being opposites of each other… Our usual response to crime is to punish it… but what does ‘punishment’ mean? ‘Punishment’ comes from Greek and Latin words that mean ‘revenge.’ Punishment is the infliction of pain for purposes of revenge–pure and simple.  Throughout history, there has been a very strong human compulsion to make the punishment fit the crime, often by being as similar to the crime as possible. In other words, whatever the violent offender did to somebody else is to be done to the violent offender. So, the criminal law just imitates the crime. If all we do when people commit crimes is punish them, we’re simply participating in an endless cycle of revenge, and counter-revenge, and counter-counter-revenge, and so on. We learn nothing. The criminals only learn that revenge is a good thing, and revenge is what the powerful do to the weak.”

The worst of all possible things that could happen would be to lose that language [that black people love so much]. There are certain things I cannot say without recourse to my language. It’s terrible to think that a child with five different present tenses comes to school to be faced with those books that are less than his own language. And then to be told things about his language, which is him, that are sometimes permanently damaging… This is a really cruel fallout of racism. I know the Standard English. I want to use it to help restore the other language, the lingua franca.

1. He ø runnin. Standard American English (SAE )= He is running.

2. He be runnin. SAE = He is usually running or He will/would be running.

3. He be steady runnin. SAE = He is usually running in an intensive, sustained manner, or He will/would be running in an intensive, sustained manner.

4. He(’s) been/bin runnin. SAE He has been running–at some earlier point, but probably not now.
Other examples: I been knowing her. SAE = I have known her.
About eleven o’clock he been eating. SAE = … he was eating.

5. He BEEN/BIN runnin’. SAE = He has been running for a long time, and still is.
-This is a use of the African American English (AAE) stressed been/remote BIN.

My mother Toni Morrison on AAVE (via howtobeterrell)

this is for whoever was telling me that AAVE isn’t a real thing… UGH

(via glassaquarium)

Note how precise each AAVE phrase is. 

(via thecrayonboxes)

Cries from perfection

(via youngbadmanbrown)

For anyone who thinks aave is just slang.
-Morgan

(via pocproblems)

This is dope. I want to note a variant that sits somewhere between #2 and #3, “he stay runnin”.

This Caramel Slice Icecream Sundae is like healthy heaven! I could eat it forever, but then again, I could eat most things forever 🐒
To make the cashew cookie layer, blend 1 and a 1/2 frozen bananas, 1 tsp of vanilla paste, 1/2 tsp of cinnamon, and 1/2 a cup of raw cashews until smooth and creamy. To make the salted caramel layer blend 1 and a 1/2 frozen bananas, 1 tbsp of nut butter, 1/4 tsp of sea salt, and 1 tsp of maple syrup until smooth and creamy. To make the final chocolate layer, blend 1 and a 1/2 frozen bananas, 1 tbsp of cacao powder, 1 tsp of maple syrup, and a sprinkle of sea salt until smooth and creamy. Layer all three flavours in a jar or bowl, and top with raw vegan caramel slice from @drlibby 🌿

I would cut the recipe in half… but omg yum!
