The Doors - People Are Strange lyrics

People are strange when youre a stranger
Faces look ugly when youre alone;
Women seem wicked when youre unwanted
Streets are uneven when youre down...

When youre strange
Faces come out of the rain
When youre strange
No one remembers your name
When youre strange x3

People are strange when youre a stranger
Faces look ugly when youre alone
Women seem wicked when youre unwanted
Streets are uneven when youre down
When youre strange
Faces come out of the rain
When youre strange
No one remembers your name
When youre strange x3

When youre strange
Faces come out of the rain
When youre strange
No one remembers your name
When youre strange x3

Flood Myths
African







Pygmy:

Chameleon, hearing a strange noise in a tree, cut open its trunk. Water came out in a great flood that spread all over the earth. The first human couple emerged with the water. [Parrinder]

Kikuyu:

The old spirits destroyed a town by flooding it with beer, while the inhabitants took refuge in caverns nearby. [Abrahams]

Yoruba:

A god, Ifa, tired of living on earth and went to dwell in the firmament. Without his assistance, mankind couldn't interpret the desires of the gods, and one god [Olokun], in a fit of rage, destroyed nearly everybody in a great flood. [Kelsen, in Dundes]

In the beginning was only the sky above, water and marshland below. The chief god Olorun ruled the sky, and the goddess Olokun ruled what was below.

Obatala, another god, reflected upon this situation, then went to Olorun for permission to create dry land for all kinds of living creatures to inhabit. He was given permission, so he sought advice from Orunmila, oldest son of Olorun and the god of prophecy.

He was told he would need a gold chain long enough to reach below, a snail's shell filled with sand, a white hen, a black cat, and a palm nut, all of which he was to carry in a bag.

All the gods contributed what gold they had, and Orunmila supplied the articles for the bag. When all was ready, Obatala hung the chain from a corner of the sky, placed the bag over his shoulder, and started the downward climb. When he reached the end of the chain he saw he still had some distance to go. From above he heard Orunmila instruct him to pour the sand from the snail's shell, and to immediately release the white hen. He did as he was told, whereupon the hen landing on the sand began scratching and scattering it about.

Wherever the sand landed it formed dry land, the bigger piles becoming hills and the smaller piles valleys. Obatala jumped to a hill and named the place Ife. The dry land now extended as far as he could see. He dug a hole, planted the palm nut, and saw it grow to maturity in a flash. The mature palm tree dropped more palm nuts on the ground, each of which grew immediately to maturity and repeated the process. Obatala settled down with the cat for company.

Many months passed, and he grew bored with his routine. He decided to create beings like himself to keep him company. He dug into the sand and soon found clay with which to mold figures like himself and started on his task, but he soon grew tired and decided to take a break. He made wine from a nearby palm tree, and drank bowl after bowl. Not realizing he was drunk, Obatala returned to his task of fashioning the new beings; because of his condition he fashioned many imperfect figures.

Without realizing this, he called out to Olorun to breathe life into his creatures. The next day he realized what he had done and swore never to drink again, and to take care of those who were deformed, thus becoming Protector of the Deformed.

The new people built huts as Obatala had done and soon Ife prospered and became a city. All the other gods were happy with what Obatala had done, and visited the land often, except for Olokun, the ruler of all below the sky. She had not been consulted by Obatala and grew angry that he had usurped so much of her kingdom. When Obatala returned to his home in the sky for a visit, Olokun summoned the great waves of her vast oceans and sent them surging across the land.

Wave after wave she unleashed, until much of the land was underwater and many of the people were drowned. Those that had fled to the highest land beseeched the god Eshu who had been visiting, to return to the sky and report what was happening to them. Eshu demanded sacrifice be made to Obatala and himself before he would deliver the message.
The people sacrificed some goats, and Eshu returned to the sky. When Orunmila heard the news he climbed down the golden cahain to the earth, and cast many spells which caused the flood waters to retreat and the dry land reappear. So ended the great flood.


Basonge:

Zebra married Ngolle Kakesse, granddaughter of God, but broke his promise not to allow her to work. From her stretched-out legs ran water which flooded the land, and Ngolle herself drowned. [Kelsen, in Dundes]

Mandingo (Ivory Coast):

A charitable man gave away everything he had. The god Ouende rewarded him with riches, advised him to leave the area, and sent six months of rain to destroy his selfish neighbors. [Kelsen, in Dundes]

Bakongo (west Zaire):

An old lady, weary and covered with sores, arrived in a town called Sonanzenzi and sought hospitality, which was denied her at all homes but the last she came to. When she was well and ready to depart, she told her friends to pack up and leave with her, as the place was accursed and would be destroyed by Nzambi. The night after they had left, heavy rains came and turned the valley into a lake, drowning all the inhabitants of the town. The sticks of the houses can still be seen deep in the lake. [Feldmann]

Cameroon:

A girl let a goat eat some of her flour, and in return for the kindness, the goat told her there will be a flood. Only she and her brother escaped. After the flood, they couldn't find mates. The goat reappeared and said they could marry themselves, but they would have to put a clay pot with a broken bottom on their roof to signify that they are relatives. [Kahler-Meyer, in Dundes]

Kwaya (Lake Victoria):

A man and his wife had a pot which never ran out of water. They told their daugher-in-law only never to touch it, but she grew curious and touched it. It shattered, and the resulting flood drowned everything. [Kahler-Meyer, in Dundes]

Racial Integrity Act of 1924

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia




On March 20, 1924 the Virginia Legislature (United States) passed two closely related eugenics laws: SB 219, entitled "The Racial Integrity Act[1]" and SB 281, "An ACT to provide for the sexual sterilization of inmates of State institutions in certain cases", henceforth referred to as "The Sterilization Act".

The Racial Integrity Act required that a racial description of every person be recorded at birth, and made marriage between white persons and non-white persons a felony. The law was the most famous ban on miscegenation (anti-miscegenation law) in the United States, and was overturned by the United States Supreme Court in 1967, in Loving v. Virginia.

The Sterilization Act provided for compulsory sterilization of persons deemed to be "feebleminded," including the "insane, idiotic, imbecile, or epileptic"[2]. These two laws were Virginia's implementation of Harry Laughlin's "Model Eugenical Sterilization Law"[3], published two years earlier in 1922. The Sterilization Act was upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court in the case Buck v. Bell 274 U.S. 200 (1927), which appealed the order to involuntarily sterilize Carrie Buck and her family, who were inmates in the Virginia Colony for Epileptics and Feeble-Minded.
Together these laws imposed the practice of "scientific eugenics" in the Commonwealth.
