"True peace is not merely the absence of tension, it is the presence of justice."


Martin Luther King, Jr in a 1955 response to an accusation that he was “disturbing the peace” by his activism during the Montgomery Bus Boycott in Montgomery, Alabama

His words remind us that it was, and still is, true justice, not simply “peace,” which is the end goal of any civil rights movement —no matter how uncomfortable that may make so-called moderates, the privileged or members of the oppressor class

Hollow calls for “love & peace” without directly acknowledging and addressing structural racism, racial profiling and especially police brutality (a subject King specifically addressed in his most famous speech) are meaningless platitudes and offer comfort to only the oppressor, not the oppressed

#Peace Without Justice Is Oppression

And here they are:
Thermoception:  Ability to sense heat and cold. Thermoceptors in the brain are used for monitoring internal body temperature.
Proprioception: The sense of where your body parts are located relevant to each other. 
Chronoception: Sense of the passing of time. Your body has an internal clock. 
Equilibrioception:  The sense that allows you to keep your balance and sense body movement in terms of acceleration and directional changes. 
Magentoception:  This is the ability to detect magnetic fields. Unlike most birds, humans do not have a strong magentoception, however, experiments have demonstrated that we do tend to have some sense of magnetic fields. 
Tension Sensors:  These are found in such places as your muscles and allow the brain the ability to monitor muscle tension.
Nociception:  In a word, pain.  This was once thought to simply be the result of overloading other senses, such as “touch”, but it has it’s own unique sensory system.  There are three distinct types of pain receptors: cutaneous (skin), somatic (bones and joints), and visceral (body organs).
