I closed my account at Huffington Post today. I grew disenchanted with the senseless censoring of viewpoints, as well as the editorial turn toward being another National Enquirer. I am starting to think Ms.H is just using this as a political platform for some future campaign somewhere. I have enjoyed your comments here on POV, and wish you all the best!
On this MLK holiday weekend, our music thread is a tribute to this remarkable man, the principles he stood for and the vision he had and acted on to bring about a better world where people would not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.
This week we observed the one-year anniversary of the Trump-led attempt to overthrow our democracy on January 6, 2021. Our nation and our democracy held firm and we're still standing against the Republican Party of Insurrection but we will need to pass voting rights protections to keep standing strong. We can't let down now. So the theme for this weekend's music thread is about standing up, staying strong, and fighting to win against the destructive forces trying to rip democracy out of the majority's hands.
