The Labyrinth at Nishimori (西森の迷路)
1990, Nintendo Famicom
A graphic adventure horror game for Famicom. A group of friends become separated during a week-long hiking trip through a great forest called Nishimori. As one of the unlucky teens, you find that you’re more than lost—the forest itself has turned against you! When your friends begin to come back from the darkness of the labyrinth, you’ll wish they had stayed lost.
Gameplay takes place over five in-game days—wander aimlessly and you’ll run out of time. Can you solve Nishimori’s riddles and escape, or will you join your friends in the forest forever?
Black feminism emerged as a theoretical and practical effort demonstrating that race, gender, and class are inseparable in the social worlds we inhabit. At the time of its emergence, Black women were frequently asked to choose whether the Black movement or the women’s movement was most important. The response was that this was the wrong question. The more appropriate question was how to understand the intersections and interconnections between the two movements. We are still faced with the challenge of understanding the complex ways race, class, gender, sexuality, nation and ability are intertwined—but also how we move beyond these categories to understand the interrelationships of ideas and processes that seem to be separate and unrelated.
Quote is from a recent interview titled Progressive Struggles Against Insidious Capitalist Individualism: Interview With Angela Davis and provides an important look at intersectionality as lived by her (clearly, if you know her history) and Black women in general.(via gradientlair)
The fact that colonialism is so central to science-fiction, and that science-fiction is so central to our own pop culture, suggests that the colonial experience remains more tightly bound up with our political life and public culture than we sometimes like to think. Sci-fi, then, doesn’t just demonstrate future possibilities, but future limits—the extent to which dreams of what we’ll do remain captive to the things we’ve already done.Noah Berlatsky’s Why Sci-Fi Keeps Imagining the Subjugation of White People (via dakotacityukuleleorchestra)

I don’t usually post anything related to current events but I’m not seeing much about this in the Western media and hope this gets out to more people. I can’t believe what’s happening right now, this is the classic definition of both police brutality and excessive force.
