Mary Cheney: Drag Is Like Blackface

"Why is it socially acceptable - as a form of entertainment - for men to put on dresses, make up and high heels and act out every offensive stereotype of women (bitchy, catty, dumb, slutty, etc.) - but it is not socially acceptable - as a form of entertainment - for a white person to put on blackface and act out offensive stereotypes of African Americans? Shouldn’t both be OK or neither?" - Mary Cheney, writing on her Facebook page after seeing an ad for the upcoming season of RuPaul's Drag Race. (Tipped by JMG reader Scott)

“Trabalho para criar união, e a união só é criada através do amor. É através do amor que dissolvemos os conflitos, pois ele é o solvente universal para todos os males.”
Acesse o Satsang Completo:

“Trabajo para crear unión, y la unión sólo es creada a través del amor. Es a través del amor que disolvemos los conflictos, pues él es el solvente universal para todos los males.”

“I work towards creating union, and union can only be created through love. It is through love that we dissolve all conflicts, for it is the universal solvent for all evil.”

The Dharma of Action | January 31, 2015

We are good at studying, publishing, and spreading the word of Buddhism. Where we have not been very successful is showcasing the compassion and selflessness of the dharma by our actions. We have written many more words in our books than what few kind words we have spoken to the poor, lonely, and desperate. We have built so many more temples than orphanages.
