Everyday is a choice. Live through your decisions.

--An extension of self.

“I am not Mike Brown. I am white. I am middle class. I am female. I am small. I am not considered a threat. When police see me they see someone who looks like them. They see their mothers, their daughters, their sisters, themselves. I am not at risk of being shot by police for existing while black. I am not at risk of being shot while unarmed. I am not at risk of being shot while armed with nothing more than a BB gun. I am not at risk of being shot for reaching for my wallet. I am privileged.
But I am outraged. And if you aren’t outraged, then you aren’t paying attention. This is America in 2014. This is our reality. It’s so easy to get jaded and to ignore these atrocities, to act like this doesn’t affect us. It’s so easy to get apathetic. In the past it was the youth who protested. Where is the rage of the youth? Where is our rage?
Like I said, I am not Mike Brown. But I am outraged.”

This Book Celebrates Banksy’s Stay in New York 
If you walked the streets of New York City last October, it was not uncommon to see people staring at graffiti and asking each other “Is that a Banksy?” Answer, it probably wasn’t. Now, photographer and writer Ray Mock has given us a little look back at the month-long Banksy visit to the Big Apple. The book features over 120 photos and illustrations strewn across 120 pages and will be released on August 15 at noon. And just like getting your hands on a Banksy, it won’t be easy to land the book as there are only 2,000 copies getting made.
