18 years old. Politically driven, with a focus on social reform, and strong socialist values. Future Political Science student at the University of Toronto. Proud feminist. Things I say oftentimes seem to conflict one another, but sometimes truth in the most earnest sense of the word can overpower the written account. Sometimes the best option is the worst in every way. See what I mean by self contradiction?
Just listen. This is phenomenal.
As a reaction to the movements in the United States to remove statues of controversial figures of history, Sir John A MacDonald, our first Prime Minister, has found himself on a similar wanted list. Just as the United States has done with figures of their history, Canada has plastered MacDonald’s name across buildings, schools, and various other facilities across the country. In MacDonald’s case, the fuel for the fire is his connection and creation of the Indian Act, and the resulting cultural genocide on the native population. Many have already asked or are beginning to ask, should John A’s memorial statues be taken down, his name ripped from the title of countless buildings across Canada?Read more…
PewDiePie has been at the top of YouTube sub counts for the past several years, even surpassing the entirety of the YouTube movies catagory. That’s right; PewDiePie is bigger than movies. Recently, however, PewDiePie has been up against some corporate competition for the top spot. They are T-Series, a bollywood music company based in India, acting as India’s version of Vevo, if you will. The sub count has come close several times, even reaching as low as 14,000 subscribers ahead of T-Series (keep in mind this is a 14,000 subscriber gap between two channels with over 70 million subscribers). That was until ‘Pewd’s’ received community & content creator support, which resulted in over 540,000 subscribers that day! The fight continues, and I decided to do what I can to help. Make a video of my own!read more
A look at the U.S. Constitution, and how Terminology used in the early beginnings of the U.S.A. has and will continue to make life harder for women.
Systematic marginalization of women in the United States is often attributed to general societal standards throughout their history, however, this essay will argue that although that concept is not technically incorrect, it leaves the question of where sexism is rooted largely unanswered. There is no denial; society and human nature in and of itself is sexist, and always has been; however I will argue that the systematic oppression built through centuries of legislation rooted the foundation of sexism within the law, while in unison with the largely superficial but undeniably vast importance placed on literal interpretation of written law.Continue reading “Women Continue to Fight Against Oppression, and it isn’t societies’ fault.”
bbno$ (baby no money) is by far my favourite small time rapper. He’s from Vancouver, so that’s a bonus. I’ll attach his new video for his new song dubbed “Money Conversation” which pretty much sums his whole vibe up nicely.
An unlikely banger, all weaved together by a beautifully simplistic video. One of the first videos released posthumously by XXX that doesn’t completely dodge the fact he is dead. I love it.
The late rapper, Jahseh ‘XXXTentacion’ Onfroy has released his first single (not including features) since he passed away. The song releases alongside the announcement of ‘Skins’ the first of multiple posthumous albums suspected to eventually be released. ‘Skins’ drops on December 7th, 2018.
The album is one of three albums Jahseh was actively working on for release in 2018, starting with his album ‘?’ which was able to release before his death, and to which brought him massive mainstream success. The other, is supposedly named ‘Bad Vibes Forever’ which is a tout to his fashion brand. It is unknown if Bad Vibes Forever was adequately completed, or if it will be able to make it to release in 2018, as X himself proposed. Listen the the new single below:
