This is a quick overview of what happened to Tulsa, OK’s “Black Wall Street” in 1921.

The black population grew to prominent, too successful, so they were literally massacred. They were bombed by the US government. The United States of America sanctioned the firebombing of the black population of a major city prevent “a Negro uprising”.

Most people don’t know which US city was the first in history to be attacked by air, and this is why

Casual reminder that in one of Leonardo da Vinci’s many notebooks containing innumerable artistic and scientific sketches and notes of incomprehensible important, there is a sketch of two penises with legs and tails walking towards a crudely drawn anus.
The sketch was most likely done by Leonardo’s apprentice Salai, who was not only very likely one of Leonardo’s lovers, but who was also infamously mischievous. Better yet, the anus is literally labeled “Salai.”
So either Salai drew these while Leonardo wasn’t looking just to annoy his boyfriend, or Leonardo himself put actual time and energy into drawing these. Either way, the human race is truly blessed to have made such a discovery.
There are dick drawings like the ones you see on desks in school in Leonardo da Vinci’s notebooks. Please cherish this information.

In the midst of exploring Renaissance Italy history for reasons, I have found a wonder.

Underwear

Attr. Louise Neut

1940-1949

MET

A respected costume historian (Valerie Steele?) said that people feel smug when looking at historical underwear, because they think about how free women are now. What they don’t consider is that we have replaced “a physical corset with the corset of the flesh”, meaning that it isn’t good enough to be squeezed into the fashionable shape. Now you have to have the fashionable shape naturally, no matter what shape your body and bones are.
