1. The role and functions of a pawn.

2. The weakest pieces on the board; numerous; interchangeable; existing to be sacrificed for the benefit of the real players.

3. Unlike other pieces, a pawn may not retreat. It can only go forward, one step at a time.

4. A pawn cannot capture a piece that blocks its path. It may only proceed if the opposing piece concedes ground, or if a different route is offered.

5. The en passant capture is a special move that permits one pawn to successfully attack another without directly engaging it.

6. Otherwise, the only way a pawn can capture is by going one step forward and to the left or right, in a single diagonal move.

7. In very rare occasions, if a pawn is allowed to cross the entire board, unscathed…

8. …it may be promoted to a queen, and, perhaps, turn the tide of the war.

Canadian music festival takes huge step against Native appropriation

Follow micdotcom 

From their announcement:

For various reasons, Bass Coast Festival is banning feathered war bonnets, or anything resembling them, onsite. Our security team will be enforcing this policy.

We understand why people are attracted to war bonnets. They have a magnificent aesthetic. But their spiritual, cultural and aesthetic significance cannot be separated.

Bass Coast Festival takes place on indigenous land and we respect the dignity of aboriginal people. We have consulted with aboriginal people in British Columbia on this issue and we feel our policy aligns with their views and wishes regarding the subject. Their opinion is what matters to us.

I remember when folks did this and how much shit changed instantaneously for them.  The ridiculous way in which white folks accept WM’s words automatically over anyone else.

white people in the comments talmbout “everybody gets trolled” yeah, that may be true but not everybody gets called a nigger and has their points marked as invalid because of it. getting trolled and experiencing blatant racism and frequent death threats are VERY different things. stop trying to justify your racism. If your way of trolling is by being “fake” racist, you are indeed a real racist.
