Best thing today!!!!
Two years ago, Paul McCarthy began searching for an inexpensive yet functional prosthetic hand for his son Leon, who was born without fingers on one of his hands. McCarthy came across a video online with detailed instruction on how to use a 3-D printer to make a prosthetic hand for his son. Michelle Miller reports.
it is not enough to theorize anti-racism
it is not enough to post anti-racist articles on facebook
it is not enough to donate to anti-racist organizations
you must evaluate your friendships, relationships, and casual interactions with PoC from an explicitly anti-racist lens
you must challenge yourself when you feel entitled to their time, energy, bodies, or insight
you must uproot your own inner white supremacist
you must evaluate your friendships, relationships, and casual interactions with white people, both those you love and those you’ve just met
you must challenge the people you love, and who you are afraid of losing, and name their behavior for what it is: violence
you must uproot not only your own life, but the lives of those you claim as friends, family, and community

Is this Walt Whitman?
This photo group is part of Eakins’s “naked series” and is labeled simply “Old man, seven photographs.” The model bears a striking resemblance to Whitman; for a plausible case that this may be a photo of Whitman “undisguised and naked,” see Ed Folsom, “Walt Whitman’s ‘Calamus’ Photographs” in Betsy Erkkila and Jay Grossman, Breaking Bounds: Whitman and American Cultural Studies (New York: Oxford University Press, 1996), 193-219.
