Hey you! Whatcha doin'?(Yes, I totally stole that from New Girl) My name is Reema and this blog will contain some of the various thoughts that occupy my brain. I tend to be a bit random, but please do embrace the ridiculousness. Or don't, it's really up to you.
Amongst the names of the 159 Palestinian civilians killed by Israel so far are the names of 18 people from one family. 18. They were killed near a Mosque that they fled to after being ordered by the IDF to leave their homes. This is Israel. This is Zionsim. This is what the world defends. If anyone here has a heart, if anyone has morals spread this around so the world can see. I don’t care if you delete what I write here or repost this. Just don’t let their names disappear. Don’t let them become footnotes and statistics. Don’t let their memory fade.
In 1987, more than 400 protesters marched at University of California, Berkeley, to call for the creation of a graduate program in African American Studies. November 6, 1987.
African American students at University of California, Berkeley, demand a graduate-level program in the Afro-American/Ethnic Studies department. Despite a concurrent weakening of institutional support for affirmative action in higher education, UC Berkeley students pressed forward on a multicultural agenda. In 1986, a student-led movement successfully convinced the Regents of the University of California to fight apartheid by divesting three billion dollars in their endowment and retirement stock portfolio of companies doing business with South Africa. A Ph.D. program in African Diaspora Studies was approved for African American Studies until 1996.
