Top 5 Twitter quotes of the week: HGP presents

Overheard on twitter

Conservatism has made you entirely delusional; you love you're billionaire exploiter and hate you poor neighbors.  by Dear Conservative

We have got to stop talking about the problem and start talking about the solution... start speaking words of victory.  by Nikki Woods

Lupita Nyong’o and her Inspirational Speech About Beauty

Beyond any scope of argument, Lupita Nyong'o's speech regarding beauty standards in our European dominating society is a god-send.

With elegance and class she articulates her journey -- or should I say struggle -- to discover external and internal beauty as a dark skin female.

It's a great moment in time when we can celebrate the strikingly gorgeous Lupita as a symbol of beauty for our daughters, sisters, nieces etc.

Our sisters need not lighten their skin, perm their hair or add weaves to be beauty personified

Where are they now: Tavis Smiley and Cornel West?

Remember the Tavis Smiley and Cornel West 2011 Poverty Bus Tour Show?

To remind you:

Smiley & West are going on a road trip to highlight the plight of the poor people of all races, colors, and creeds so they will not be forgotten, ignored, or rendered invisible during this difficult and dangerous time of economic deprivation and political cowardice.

You ask, what can a philosopher and broadcaster do about poverty? The answer is simple, do what we do best and use our public platforms to raise consciousness and raise the issue of poverty higher on the American agenda.  source
