DO NOT SCROLL PASS. THIS IS YOUR DAUGHTER, YOUR SISTER, YOUR FRIEND. PLEASE HELP TO BRING #relisha #rudd BACK HOME SAFE AND SOUND.

Y’all, this case is like 3000% legit. It’s been all over the news in my area and the search for her has turned into a search for her body. The man who took her is also wanted for the murder of his own wife.  

Those are both true, links here and here
Relisha is the 3rd girl to go missing in the our area in the past month. She is thought to be with Kahlil Malik Tatum, a janitor at her school, who is thought to be driving either of the cars stated in the above flyer. Please signal boost this, the DC Police may have started to give up hope, but there still may be a chance for Relisha Rudds.

  • Just another whackadoo day…

    Earlier this evening my partner said to me, “I will stick a banana in my ear, if da boi takes a shower without procrastination.”  Excited, I yelled up to da boi, repeating the challenge. Da boi replied, “that isn’t enough.”

    Da boi is 17, but looks and acts about 13. Short statured (because his me and his dad are), full o’ meds for his bipolar disorder and full of piss and vinegar that goes with adolescence.

    I remember a time under 10 when he loved water, loved baths, would spend many minutes in front of a mirror to pat and comb his hair.  Those days are long gone.  The strong body odor of teen boy appeared last summer.  There are days of sham showers, slight splashing on of water and uncombed hair.  

    So it is 5 minutes before lights out…and of course a shower has not happened.

    Just another whackadoo day and the first weekday of spring break….

    Eva Mirabal wasn’t just the first female Native American cartoonist—she was one of the first Native American cartoonists period, and one of the first female creators to have her own strip. Born Eah-Ha-Wa (“Fast Growing Corn” in the Tiwa language), Mirabal grew up surrounded by art: her father served as an artists’ model, she spent years studying art at the Santa Fe Indian school under director Dorothy Dunn, who recognized her “ability to translate everyday events into scenes of warmth and seminaturalistic beauty” right off the bat, and at nineteen was featured as part of a gallery exhibition in Chicago. World War II brought her work to a wider audience when, after enlisting in the Woman’s Army Corps in 1943, she was commissioned to create a strip for the Corps newsletter. G.I. Gertie gave canny, irreverent voice to women in the military, and Mirabal was quickly commissioned for more work, most notably her posters advertising war bonds. After the war, she served as an Artist-in-Residence at Southern Illinois University, painted murals for schools, planetariums, and military facilities, and eventually returned to the Taos Pueblo. Her later works, signed not as Eva Mirabal but as Eah-Ha-Wah, depict everyday Pueblo life with uncommon passion and candor.

    Today, Eva Mirabal is far from celebrated. You’re really only going to find the same G.I.Gertie strip over and over again if you search online, many of her murals have been demolished, and her tumblr tag is empty. But her work—intimate, warm, and keenly felt—stands strong, decades after her death. The comics and art world stand in sore need of women like Mirabal: G.I. Gertie was not the work of a male cartoonist, cracking jokes about those silly women and their silly woman concerns, nor are her paintings the product of a white observer, smearing his bias across a community he “discovered.” Mirabal was a woman writing for women, a member of the Taos Pueblo creating for the Taos Pueblo—an artist committed to her world and its validity.

    (Third in a series on women in the comics industry.)
