NOW WITH SLIGHTLY LESS “BATMAN BEING BATMAN” RESULTS
So I noticed there was a glut of new hits on the old one, and I remembered I’d been wanting to make a bigger new one. This time, I’m also starting a tag #randraw for people who want to post and share their results.
DIY Harry Potter Monopoly Game from Design in Technology here. For how to make the board, cards, etc… go here. For the printable files (board, spells, potions, properties etc…) go here. *Read the comments on each post for additional tips and tricks for making this game. This must have truly been a labor of love and is so well done. This is obviously not for commercial use so please don’t sell it. First seen at Geek crafts here.

It’s so beautiful.
Gordon Parks, Dr. Kenneth B. Clark conducting the Doll Test, Harlem, New York, 1947
In the “doll test,” psychologists Kenneth and Mamie Clark used four plastic, diaper-clad dolls, identical except for color. They showed the dolls to black children between the ages of three and seven and asked them questions to determine racial perception and preference. Almost all of the children readily identified the race of the dolls. However, when asked which they preferred, the majority selected the white doll and attributed positive characteristics to it. The Clarks also gave the children outline drawings of a boy and girl and asked them to color the figures the same color as themselves. Many of the children with dark complexions colored the figures with a white or yellow crayon. The Clarks concluded that “prejudice, discrimination, and segregation” caused black children to develop a sense of inferiority and self-hatred. This photograph was taken by Gordon Parks for a 1947 issue of Ebony magazine. (via)
You want to know what is exceptionally fucked up?
The same study was replicated in 2008. Dark-skinned children still by far selected the white doll. Repeatedly.

I’m a part of Lost Generation
and I refuse to believe that
I can change the world
I realize this may be a shock but
“Happiness comes from within”
is a lie, and
“Money will make me happy”
So in thirty years I’ll tell my children
They are not the most important thing in my life
My employer will know that
I have my priority straight because
Is more important than
I tell you this
Once upon a time
Families stay together
But this will not be true in my era
This is a quick fix society
Experts tell me
Thirty years from now I will be celebrating the 10th anniversary of my divorce
I do not concede that
I will live in a country of my own making
In the future
Environmental destruction will be the norm
No longer can it be said that
My peers and I care about this earth
It will be evident that
My generation is apathetic and lethargic
It is foolish to presume that
There is hope
And all of this will come true unless we reverse it.
there’s a great video of someone reading this poem
