You cannot avoid homophobia, racism, or sexism. You may put yourself into a bubble and have people who have the same views as you, but that isn’t revolutionary. Theory is nothing without good practice. You cant go to working class neighborhoods and start rambling off with privilege politics and judge them for not knowing as much as you. So what you have is circle jerk of academics never bringing that theory in an effective way to working class people. What is created instead, is exclusion of the very people you seem to care about, but never talk to or understand their stories.
Say no to escapism, and instead dedicate every part of you to fighting against oppression. Fighting Racism is not a game. Its not sending a tweet and feeling good about yourself. Even Melissa Harris Perry says hash tag actvism is not effective activism. The revolution will not be televised. Even in Egypt young people who used twitter to organize had their websites shut down ( by us owned military companies). A tweet will not protect you from a bullet. A tweet will not send down the white house.

The raven is sometimes known as “the wolf-bird.” Ravens, like many other animals, scavenge at wolf kills, but there’s more to it than that.

 Both wolves and ravens have the ability to form social attachments and they seem to have evolved over many years to form these attachments with each other, to both species’ benefit.

There are a couple of theories as to why wolves and ravens end up at the same carcasses. One is that because ravens can fly, they are better at finding carcasses than wolves are. But they can’t get to the food once they get there, because they can’t open up the carcass. So they’ll make a lot of noise, and then wolves will come and use their sharp teeth and strong jaws to make the food accessible not just to themselves, but also to the ravens.

Ravens have also been observed circling a sick elk or moose and calling out, possibly alerting wolves to an easy kill. The other theory is that ravens respond to the howls of wolves preparing to hunt (and, for that matter, to human hunters shooting guns). They find out where the wolves are going and following. Both theories may be correct.

Wolves and ravens also play. A raven will sneak up behind a wolf and yank its tail and the wolf will play back. Ravens sometimes respond to wolf howls with calls of their own, resulting in a concert of howls and calls.
