Ryo Oyamada, a 24 year old student from Japan, was struck and killed by an NYPD vehicle in a hit & run.  Witnesses say the police car had no lights or sirens on and was going over 70 mph.  The released footage by NYPD was proven to be heavily altered in a cover-up, showing “lights” on the vehicle, when compared to footage from the NY Housing Authority on the same street with the same timestamp. 

On a personal note: I know that this will probably not be shared or reblogged very much, because Asians are not very prominent in American culture.  I understand this, because Asians (like me) are partially at fault for being so passive.  But I am begging you to please consider signing this petition out of human decency.  Ryo was just a student walking home, then struck by a nearly silent police cruiser going at excess speed, and the NYPD covered it up. 

Here is the side-by-side comparison of the released video footage, including updates from the case.  *Edit*  This article contains a link to a graphic video moments after the crash, showing the body of Ryo Oyamada and NY citizens yelling at the police.  Please advise, it is highly disturbing. 

And the following is an excerpt from the petition, which as of now only has 286 signatures.

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOST

So. Fucking. Important.

I hope that some demilitarization of police departments will result from these protests, but seeing that there is currently a No-Fly Zone over Ferguson, I am doubtful. lovebug:

"Somebody who is in control of their craft..of being a faggot."

From the video’s description:

Proving once again that dance music can arrive ready to push both the dancefloor and popular culture forward as one, Butler’s most provocative anthem to date lands with a groundbreaking music video directed by acclaimed director Matt Lambert. Part music video, part documentary, prominent voices from New York’s art, music, literary and nightlife scenes including Kalup Linzy, Honey Dijon, Juliana Huxtable and Contessa Stuto discuss their relationship to the word over the dark, cathartic undertones of Butler’s bold electronic production. “It’s a power word, it’s a magical word, it’s also a New York City word.” 

Gaga’s new recording from “Anything Goes” is incredible.

Meera SethiAn Ideal Boy - Good Habits. Digital, 11 in. x 17 in. 2010.

An Ideal Boy – Good Habits” is an ironic take on an educational chart used throughout India.

The original chart was part of a popular series of instructional illustrations for children that served as a guide to socially ‘appropriate’ behaviour.

My take on the chart uses irony to draw attention to the normative heterosexual agenda of the original and playfully suggests a re-education: one can be gay and be “An Ideal Boy” at the same time. Borrowing the hand-painted, mis-registered aesthetic quality of the original version, my poster is a double-take that suggests the unexpected.
