The Pashtuns are a rain-sown wheat. They all came up on the same day. They are all the same, but the chief reason why I love a Pashtun is that he will wash his face, oil his beard, perfume his locks, and put on his best pair of clothes when he goes out to fight and die.

This is what the people of Ferguson are up against and if you still don’t think that this is a big deal then you need to wake the fuck up

"Curing AIDS? Shit, that’s like Cadillac making a car that lasts for 50 years. And you know they can do it, but they ain’t going to do nothing that fucking dumb. Shit, they got metal on the Space Shuttle that can go around the Moon and withstand  temperatures of up to 20,000 degrees, you mean to tell me you don’t think they can make an El Dorado with a fuckin’ bumper that don’t fall off?"

Happening NOW: Thousands of New Yorkers are staging a sit-in in the middle of Times Square chanting, “Hands up, don’t shoot” to support the people of #Ferguson. Every 28 hours in the US, a person of color is killed by racist police terror. Rest in Peace to Mike Brown, Eric Garner, Rekia Boyd, Oscar Grant, Ramarley Graham, Amadou Diallo and too many more.

men like girls who “don’t know they are beautiful” because they are afraid that one day you will realise that you are the sun and the stars and he is nothing but a discarded plastic bag clogging up the ocean that you are

I cannot bring myself to wish anyone a happy Independence day. Not when Pakistan denies my people their right to live, when the bloodbaths in eastern Afghanistan are ignored, left out of any discussion, and propagandized, and when no one shows any sympathy. It’s not fair. A child was just killed in Kunar and several houses were destroyed, of course I can’t be happy about Independence day. Years later, and we’re still waiting for the recognition we deserve.

So did anyone hear about the officer who placed a woman under arrest for breastfeeding in NYC? She went to get on her bus, he pulled her back by the collar of her shirt, and as a result she dropped her 3 month old baby. He still placed her under arrest while her baby was lying on the concrete with a cracked skull. Her daughter died at the hospital while she was at the police station. He’s on PAID leave.

A sample of tweets on #Ferguson tonight, 8/13/14

"Justice isn’t here right now"

I am ashamed of my country on the deepest level. I am not proud of America in the least bit right now.


6am in Nagano…  I shot these all within 1 block of each other on the same street while traveling on assignment last month through Japan.
