Even today the masses of the Negroes see all too clearly the anomalies of their position and the moral crookedness of yours. You may marshal strong indictments against them, but their counter-cries, lacking though they be in formal logic, have burning truths within then which you may not wholly ignore, O Southern Gentlemen! If you deplore their presence here, they ask, Who brought us? When you cry, Deliver us from the vision if intermarriage, they answer that legal marriage is infinitely better than systematic concubinage and prostitution. And if in just fury you accuse their vagabonds of violating women, they also in fury quite as just may reply: The wrong which your gentlemen have done against helpless black women in defiance of your own laws is written on the foreheads of two millions of mulattoes, and written in ineffaceable blood. And finally, when you fasten crime upon this race as its peculiar trait, they answer that slavery was the archcrime, and lynching and lawlessness its twin abortion; that color and race are not crimes, and yet they it is which in this land receives most unceasing condemnation, North, East, South, and West.
W.E.B. Du Bois, The Souls of Black Folk, 1903 (via tinasinatra)

Capturing a Hauntingly Beautiful Tugboat Graveyard

For more photos and videos from the Tugboat Graveyard, explore the Tugboat Graveyard - Staten Island location page.

The scuttled remains of tugboats, ferries and other maritime vessels rest peacefully in shallow water off the shores of Staten Island in New York City.

The rusting hulks, decrepit frames, creaks and bumps in the Witte Marine Equipment Company scrap yard, known as the “Tugboat Graveyard,” contribute to a hauntingly beautiful industrial landscape hidden in plain sight.

Instagrammers looking to make an off-the-beaten-path field trip just outside of the city center can capture eerie photos of light filtering through decaying structures, jagged reflections and the occasional geese and other wildlife picking their way along the murky shore.
