#CowParsnip is the ONLY #Heracleum species that's native to #NorthAmerica. There's many look-a-likes including the very toxic giant hogweed. I don't recommend trying to #forage & harvest them unless you're very experienced with identifying differences because it's dangerous to do so.

When considering the audience, it’s no surprise that many within the #WhiteMajority of #NorthAmerica, lack the necessary #education when investing in the appropriation of #POC lifestyles.

@sam wonders how to respond after a bad driver interaction:

Q6. When you have a dangerous interaction with a driver that doesn't involve a crash (drivers throwing things, pulling in front of you and getting out of their car and attempting to stop your bike, etc.) do you call the police, file a report later, get away and then do nothing, or something else? What factors go into making your decision?

Brownian_motion,

@ascentale @sam It truly saddening that the majority of replies (seemingly all from ) concerning reporting a life threatening incident on a bicycle involve such disparaging comments on interactions with our law enforcement agencies. Come to think of it, I don’t think I’ve seen a single comment about being helped or supported by police regarding stuff. @bikenite Sure seems to say something about how perceptions are being shaped.

“Colors of Mott Street in Chinatown”

Mott Street is a narrow but busy thoroughfare that runs in a north–south direction in the New York City borough of Manhattan.

It is regarded as Chinatown's unofficial “Main Street”.

Mott Street north of Canal Street was historically part of Little Italy. Today it is predominantly Chinese.

“V-J Day in Times Square, Kobra's colorful edition”

Eduardo Kobra painted these stunning murals on 25th Street at 10th Avenue in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan, New-York City.

The top mural takes inspiration from Alfred Eisenstaedt’s iconic photo of a U.S. Navy sailor grabbing and kissing a nurse on V-J Day in Times Square in New York City. The photo symbolizes the triumph of love over war and how America found relief in the silence of the guns after Japan's surrender on August 15, 1945.

Sadly, these two people were complete strangers, and the sailor was drunk, making this photo a symbol of The Selective Blindness of Rape Culture.

Below is a mural depicting vintage Times Square street scene.

Unfortunately, these murals have been painted over by the building owner.
