Chuck Berry

Rock n Roll was originally Black music.

thank you

Yes, him and little Richard never get their due smh

except…chuck berry didn’t invent rock n roll…

Sister Rosetta Tharpe predates both chuck berry and little richard by quite a few years

Two of Tharpe’s hit songs were released in like 1944-45 when Chuck Berry was a) incarcerated and b) still a high school student, Tharpe basically discovered Little Richard, and she’s referred to as the godmother of rock n roll

lol just

throwin that out there

Cool. You don’t know what you don’t know. Reblogging for the new info.

Damn… thanks for the rec.

You could have done well linking a song though.

Slavoj Žižek on Greece: This is a chance for Europe to awaken

The Greeks are correct: Brussels' denial that this is an ideological question is ideology at its purest - and symptomatic of our whole political process.

We know over 200,000 young women and girls have been trafficked to work in cotton mills in Tamil Nadu, India. Recruited under false promises through a scheme called Sumangali. They are promised a lump sum payment after 3-5 years but often receive nothing. There is little or no training or health and safety equipment. Their freedom is restricted, often living in onsite hostels, and their contact with the outside world limited.  

STOP THE TRAFFIK is campaigning to end trafficking through this scheme and across the whole fashion supply chain.

a judge in the Hague has ruled that the Dutch government’s stance on climate change is illegal and has ordered them to take action to cut greenhouse gas emissions by a hefty 25% within five years.

Lawyers say the precedent it sets could trigger similar cases all around the world. Already, in Belgium, 8, 000 citizens are preparing for a similar court case, with others pointing to another possible lawsuit in Norway. Although the case is only binding within the Netherlands, lawyers say that it will inspire lawyers and judges considering similar cases in many other countries.

Awesome kick-in-the-nutts interview from the Zeit with french economist Piketty:

ZEIT: The German Minister of Finance, on the other hand, seems to believe that a Greek exit from the Eurozone could foster greater unity within Europe.

Piketty: If we start kicking states out, then the crisis of confidence in which the Eurozone finds itself today will only worsen. Financial markets will immediately turn on the next country. This would be the beginning of a long, drawn-out period of agony, in whose grasp we risk sacrificing Europe’s social model, its democracy, indeed its civilization on the altar of a conservative, irrational austerity policy.

ZEIT: Do you believe that we Germans aren’t generous enough?

Piketty: What are you talking about? Generous? Currently, Germany is profiting from Greece as it extends loans at comparatively high interest rates.

ZEIT: What solution would you suggest for this crisis?

Piketty: We need a conference on all of Europe’s debts, just like after World War II. A restructuring of all debt, not just in Greece but in several European countries, is inevitable...

Sascha Lobo über "Bild": "Dieses Medium macht ohnehin die Gesellschaft aktiv schlechter und hasserfüllter. Und an der jahrelangen Anti-Griechenland-Hetzkampagne ist die neo-nationalistische Agenda zu erkennen: die absichtsvolle Produktion eines deutschen Wohlgefühls der Überlegenheit, ein Wir-gegen-die-Chauvinismus, wo stets mitschwingt: Wir sind einfach besser. Selbst als Atheist hoffe ich da, dass es doch einen Gott gäbe, einfach damit auch eine Hölle existiert für die Leute, die das verantworten."
