Potent minimalist art sends a strong message about police and vigilante brutality in America

Journalist and artist Shirin Barghi has created a gripping, thought-provoking series of graphics that not only examines racial prejudice in today’s America, but also captures the sense of humanity that often gets lost in news coverage. Titled “Last Words,” the graphics illustrate the last recorded words by Brown and other young black people — Trayvon Martin, Oscar Grant and others — who have been killed by police in recent years.

Let us not forget their voices

“ If you’re going to try, go all the way. Otherwise, don’t even start. This could mean losing girlfriends, wives, relatives and maybe even your mind. It could mean freezing on a park bench. It could mean jail. It could mean derision. It could mean mockery, isolation. Isolation is the gift. All others are a test of your endurance. Of how much you really want to do it. And you’ll do it, despite rejection in the worst odds. And it will be better than anything else you can imagine. If you’re going to try, go all the way. There is no other feeling like that…And the nights will flame with fire…It’s the only good fight there is. ”

Charles Bukowski, Factotum (via wordsnquotes)

“ Often times when I meet atheists and we talk about the god they don’t believe in, we quickly discover that I don’t believe in that god, either. ”

— Rob Bell (via dominicmatthew)

The interesting thing about this is that the scriptures refer to a god whose nature is at great disparity with whatever many of these Christians choose to believe, and this idealized and personalized form of god cannot be reconciled with this scriptural God. One develops their own personal set of beliefs which often revolve around cherry-picking certain scripture and ignoring others, leaving one to happily avoid any contradictions present.

“ The coolness of Buddhism isn’t indifference but the distance one gains on emotions, the quiet place from which to regard the turbulence. From far away you see the pattern, the connections, and the thing as whole, see all the islands and the routes between them. Up close it all dissolves into texture and incoherence and immersion, like a face going out of focus just before a kiss. ”
