Why Do Black People Think So Much of Race…?

Black people get that question put to us a lot more often than you would think. It is generally followed by the statement, ‘well…I don’t see color’ or ‘things have changed’ accompanied by a raised eyebrow of incredulity. Unlike the police or people who believe in witchcraft, people of color cannot take off their skin…

Trump says paintballs would be defensive

“Coming from out of town to drive through crowds of people, spraying mace, and shooting paintballs all falls under “self defense.” Interesting. So if BLM travels to the suburbs and does the same, you would defend it as well?” Or more stupidly, is Trump condoning their use by non-LEOs when he goes to Kenosha tomorrow. x…

Is it About Who Demands the Justice?

It strikes me as curious as to why the Black Lives Matter slogan is such an irritant to a large number of conservatives. It seems a simple premise, include us in your view of the sanctity of life. When  Donald Trump bellows “America First” does that mean that Europe, Asia, and Africa should rebel in…

MA-Sen: AOC Makes The Case For Re-Electing Sen. Ed Markey (D) In New Ad

I appreciate Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D. NY-14) doing this for U.S. Senator Ed Markey’s (D. MA) re-election campaign: x YouTube Video Ocasio-Cortez, who endorsed Markey in his reelection fight against Representative Joseph P.

ALL ‘LIES’ MATTER

When founders, Alicia Garza, Patrisse Cullors, and Opal Tometi began a movement, I am certain they knew it would be controversial. What they achieved was to set in motion the recognition of truth in three words, Black Lives Matter. To refute their assertion, primarily white Americans countered with All Lives Matter. What they failed to…
