Ron Eglash: The fractals at the heart of African designs.
The impact of African mathematics brought to the world the binary system which has brought about digital technology and circuitry.
In this very Interesting talk Ron Eglash talks about how Africans made use of fractals mathematics in their village design and how this knowledge governs African Design and Architecture to date. Thankfully African Fractals are being used by schools in Africa and America to better teach mathematics and understanding of the binary system.

If they push that button, don’t you know,
It’s a motherfucker. Your ass got to go.

TUESDAY 8/19: Ferguson PD presented a table full of fabricated evidence at this morning’s press conference - allegedly seized from protestors and stopped cars. The Colt 45 Molotov with a white bandana was the crowning glory, turns out you can’t even buy glass 40’s in Missouri. Stay classy, FPD
I seriously think white supremacist are coming in the area to frame the protesters, but it could just be the cops
Colt 45 Molotov cocktail? What’s next, a watermelon incendiary bomb? A fried chicken pipe bomb? These jokers can’t even frame folks without their racism showing.
Here’s an article talking about the ban on glass 40s in St Louis and the surrounding areas, btw.
The people coming into Ferguson provoking violence against local protesters, be they opportunist wannabe radicals treating it like a revolutionary fantasy camp or police-planted provocateurs, are horrid and very real.
Never ever ever ever ever forget that the violence being directed at this community is being unilaterally instigated by police in an effort to enforce systematic white supremacy. Do not be distracted by the excuses authorities try to make for themselves.
Reblogging for the link and commentary.
I tried to tell y’all who’s behind the fireworks (to cause confusion), molotov cocktails, agitating police, being belligerent and ESPECIALLY the LOOTING. IT’S NOT US. PROTESTS IN #FERGUSON HAVE BEEN INFILTRATED BY HATE GROUPS. They come to stir up shit, then sit back and blame the unruly n****s.
