“How do we shape minds to think outside of the boxes of the oppressive cultures in which we live and develop responsible technologies? How do we cultivate cultures and critical thinking that will foster new technologies? How do we make available access to information, spaces and tools that will help people to create new technologies? A lot of how we see technology is steeped in Western thought of efficiency, progress and making capital and not how it enriches our lives, the lives of other animals, plants and the Earth. We still have a lot of unlearning to do.”

From yesterday- at @cccadi event, a conversation with Afro-Brazilian Candomble priestess, Iyalorixá Valinizia Pereira, where she talked about the persecution Black Brazilians, especially those who practice African-derived religions like Candomble, face and her involvement in social justice. #candomble #brazil #africanspirituality #africandiaspora #priestess #cccadi #socialjustice #blacklivesmatter

So the same exact damn day they release the name of the officer who killed Mike Brown, Darren Wilson, they decided to send out a tape of him supposedly stealing. Really?!! As if his life is less important than some stuff he stole. As the family attorney said it is a sideshow distraction. Wow, they know how to stoop low.

Some of the memorable things said: 1) what’s happening can easily turn into MOVE or Black Wall St, 2) we need to educate ourselves and our communities on our own stories and histories because they won’t, 3) many of us were here because of the gross insensitivity of others in the face of this and our need to find others to join forces with, 4) since this is a capitalist country, we need to support our own communities and businesses to hit the country where it hurts and be mindful of the corporations and things we support who may not have our best interest at heart and 5) black and brown lives matter despite what they tell us or do to us. There was so much I couldn’t remember it all, but I was grateful for the energy there. #nmos #mikebrown #ferguson #ericgarner #queens #baisleypark #policebrutality #blacklivesmatter
