lil-wayne-bm01I can’t say that Lil Wayne pops up  in my conversations regularly, but it just so happens that earlier this week I got into a deep talk about Lil Wayne’s recent infatuation with playing the electric guitar (rather poorly, I might add).

However, the music star has redeemed himself by generously donating $200,000 to help rebuild a New Orleans, Louisiana playground he grew up in. The donation was given via his youth empowerment organization One Family Foundation.

Wayne tells Louisiana’s WWLTV, “You can’t really tell them (kids) what to do these days. When you tell them what to do, that’s when they get angry, when you tell them (to) be like me, because it’s hard to be like me. So, the best thing you can tell them is try to do right.”

So hey, maybe Lil Wayne’s gotta a “lil” work to do on the guitar, but it’s sure nice to see that he’s skilled in the art of giving! Good work!!

Prisons profit from exploiting life and labour

Most young workers don’t want anything to do with manual labour jobs in meat and dairy, and as a result, a large majority of agricultural workers are marginalized people

If you’re mourning Sudan the rhino, go vegan

The world needs more vegans because more than dollars or pledges or sad-emoji riddled posts, our individual efforts can stop the demand for horns, for zoos, for animal flesh, and for the exploitation of any living being.

Criticize veganism, but don’t discredit it

Oppressive and harmful behaviour has no place in a movement rooted in anti-oppression.
