My hero Brontez (of Younger Lovers) in response to this article breaking down the racial line in tagging for all y’all out there. He lived at Sugar Mountain, of warehouse party fame, and it’s very real. Well said!
“NAW FUCK THAT LETS BE REAL it IS usually white folks and its FUCKED. though this view point has made me less than popular in certain circles i still will express it with vigour. White kids AINT oppessed in America so i dont get what this “flabbergasted” shit is about. Why the fuck you acting like you need a crystal ball to see why MOSTLY WHITE HIPSTERS get to tag the fuck out of a neighbourhood full of black and brown folks but you like NEVER see as much graffiti in like N Oakland or Rockridge? DO N O T fucking play me on this one…Like whenever there is ANY punk show in W Oakland. hella gnarly white drunk punks get to show up (from the neighbourhood or WHEREVER) tag shit up and then leave! IVE SEEN THIS SHIT TOO MUCH TO BE QUIET ABOUT IT. IT MAKES ME FUCKING SICK. I hate to break this to you but YES WHITE PEOPLE CAN BE A MOTHERFUCKING PROBLEM. what also hurts is how many (usually white) taggers ive had to explain too why rape tagging w oakland is BAD. after this one show my older black neighbor dude was like “how come you guys get to tag my house but im never invited your party’s?” THIS IS TRUTH BITCH.”
SERIOUSLY CONSIDER THIS. Being selective is crucial.

“I should just like to make one last point about solidarity between the international working class movement and our national liberation struggle. There are two alternatives: either we admit that there really is a struggle against imperialism which interests everybody, or we deny it. If, as would seem from all the evidence, imperialism exists and is trying simultaneously to dominate the working class in all the advanced countries and smother the national liberation movements in all the underdeveloped countries, then there is only one enemy against whom we are fighting. If we are fighting together, then I think the main aspect of our solidarity is extremely simple: it is to fight.”
- Amílcar Cabral
“Our revolution is not a public-speaking tournament. Our revolution is not a battle of fine phrases. Our revolution is not simply for spouting slogans that are no more than signals used by manipulators trying to use them as catchwords, as codewords, as a foil for their own display. Our revolution is, and should continue to be, the collective effort of revolutionaries to transform reality, to improve the concrete situation of the masses of our country.”
All I can think about is every idiot punk dude waltzing around the japanese imperial flag somewhere on his person. FUCK YOUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU^^^^^^ yes.
Cursed Kleenex Commercial
In the 1980s, Kleenex released three Japanese commercials for their tissues, featuring a woman dressed in a white toga-like dress and a young child dressed as a Japanese ogre, sitting on straw. Each advert had the song “It’s a Fine Day" by Jane & Barton playing in the background. Many viewers found the advertisement disturbing. Some complaints claimed the music sounded like a German curse, although the lyrics are in English. Because of its unnerving ambiance, several rumours began to circulate about the cast, such as with the crew meeting untimely deaths through accidents and the lead actress Keiko Matsuzaka either dying, being institutionalized or becoming pregnant with a demon child.
