It is a cruel irony that before the start of the trial of former officer Derek Chauvin the state of Minnesota is one of many placing the knee of racism on the neck of black American voters. It is also not lost on me that Colin Kaepernick was denied his...

I could go into a long pedagogical dissertation about allostatic loads or adverse childhood experiences but why complicate a simple premise. I will let the fear of a little girl speak for me: The above incident took place in upstate New York, in an area I lived near for three...

Why is Faux Fake news not being brought to heel with chanting and pushing the truth of BLM? Fox indeed  does carry the water for Trump. They carry the water for racists.  Fox promotes division and hate. Protestors missed the mark with CNN and should have protested Fox.  They should...

Fox News’ Laura Ingraham, on the heels of the Colin Kaepernick kneeling episode, commented in 2018 on the opinions of basketball players, LeBron James, and Kevin Durant. Both Durant and James commented harshly and profanely about the leadership of President Trump, to which Ingraham famously said, “ shut up and...

Being from Wisconsin, I’ve been a fan of the Green Bay Packers most of my life. Starting at the age of 8, I’ve followed the team — with varying degrees of enthusiasm — since the ‘70s. I watched them win Super Bowl XXXI and Super Bowl XLV, but I’ve never...

There are many people angry and hurt and I get that greatly !   I have been angry for a long long time about Police brutality.  I have witnessed it for years in different situations but the first one affected me so much that I fought back and was only 16....

Remember this horrible, horrible pig-feces-lagoon of a tweet from three days ago in which the actual president of the United States suggested protesters should be shot by the police and/or the government because, unlike the protesters carrying assault weapons to state capitols to fight for their right to eat an entire...

Since Donald Trump is about as soothing as a ghost pepper enema, this is no surprise. But that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t be outraged. The Rev. Al Sharpton interviewed George Floyd’s brother Philonise on MSNBC earlier today, and guess what? Trump flubbed his condolence call, coming off as neither empathetic...

After Donald Trump peeled back another layer of decaying orange face rind last night to reveal still more maggots underneath, Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot apparently decided enough was enough. In case you missed it, Trump tweeted this about the riots that have erupted in response to the killing of George...

Yup. Exactly the same. A Black man getting his throat crushed by a cop is exactly the same thing as the FBI investigating a presidential candidate’s numerous sketchy ties to — and lies about — Russia during and after an election in which Vladimir Putin clearly worked to help elect that candidate....

Does Bill Barr have to sound like a mobster every time he talks? This is a nice community you have. It would be a shame if someone wrecked it. The Washington Post: “Today, the American people have to focus on something else, which is the sacrifice and the service that...

The evolution of change is usually the result of slow transformation; the wheel led to wagons; the wagons led to cars, cars led to rockets and rockets led to video games.  The announcement of Michael Bloomberg into the race for the Democratic nomination for President will inevitably stir some issues...

Nike is a multi-billion dollar brand that dominates the global sportswear market. Naturally, they hire the best marketing executives in the business. They knew exactly what they were doing when they decided to promote the hell out of Colin Kaepernick. Their research showed three things that we liberals have known for quite some time: Opposing Trump...
