For the first time in our history, African-American women have surpassed all groups in college entrance based upon race and gender. That’s right. African American women enroll in college (9.7%) more than Asian men (8.4%), white women (7.1%) - you name the group, either race or gender, African American women are number one.
Break the string of lies and end the misogynoir (racialized antiblack misogyny). Shine bright!

This is good news.
A Texas federal judge handed gay rights advocates another major victory on Wednesday, this time in one of the nation’s largest and most conservative states, when he declared its prohibition of same-sex marriage unconstitutional. The judge prohibited the state from enforcing its 2003 law against same-sex unions and the 2005 state constitutional amendment defining marriage as being between a man and a woman. The Texas lawsuit, filed by a lesbian couple from Austin who married in Boston in 2009 and wanted it to be recognized in Texas, and two gay men from Plano who want to marry, is one of three such active lawsuits in the state.
BEST. DAY. TEXAS SOMETIMES YOU DONT SUCK.

Dear CeCe McDonald supporters,
The rumors are true: CeCe is scheduled to be released from prison in January. She will wait and write a public statement about her release after she gets out of prison, because she wants to tell you all in her own words and own time. She would like to spend her first days out in privacy, with people she feels close to. Again, information about her release will be shared when CeCe feels it is the right time to do so. In the meantime, she and her support committee ask everyone to be patient.
We are excited to throw her a party, the weekend after her release. As soon as the venue and date are confirmed, we will announce! This party is a chance for everyone who has been supporting CeCe to come out and celebrate her release with her.
Many of you are eager to send contributions of money or materials, to aid in her transition home. Keep an eye on the FreeCece Mcdonald Facebook page for specific ‘asks’ in the future. Right now, because of the incredible support of her community here in Minneapolis and around the world, she will be safe, comfortable, and cared for when she rejoins us. Please consider sending a donation to other incarcerated people or abolition movements. (Check out the Rainbow Defense Fund http://rainbowdefensefund.wordpress.com/).
Thanks everyone for supporting CeCe, and for supporting her now in the way she most needs: with your patience.
~ CeCe Support Committee
