We are living in a world that has gone completely bonkers. How else can you explain what happened to a nine-year-old Black girl who was doing something good for her neighborhood only to have the police called on her because some old Geezer saw “A little black woman walking and spraying something on the trees and sidewalk, I don’t know what she’s doing, but it scares me though.”
In his concurrence on Students For Fair Admissions, Justice Clarence Thomas wrote, “In the wake of the Civil War, the country focused on restoring the Union and establishing the legal status of newly freed slaves.” Interesting phrasing by Thomas. It...
Boebert is blaming her x-rated conduct on her going through a divorce, which is weak. Thousands of people go through divorces daily and don’t behave like wannabe porn stars in public.
The freedmen were not really free in 1865, nor are most of their descendants really free in 1965. Slavery was but one aspect of a race and color problem that is still far from solution here, or anywhere. In America, particularly, the grapes of wrath have not yet yielded their bitter vintage. — The Oxford History of the American People , ch.1
"The majority of the 1,000-plus book challenges analyzed by The Post were filed by just 11 people. Each of these people brought 10 or more challenges against books in their school district; one man filed 92 challenges. Together, these serial filers constituted 6 percent of all book challengers — but were responsible for 60 percent of all filings."
For Tucker Carlson, it was never about imparting the truth. As his high school friend told a reporter, “He saw Tucker making the pragmatic decision to follow a business model that made his conservative media counterparts a lot of money.”
Caitlyne Gonzales shouldn’t have to do what she is doing. That should be the job of her two senators, Ted Cancun Cruz, John Cornyn, and the governor of Texas, Greg Abbot, are the ones who should be advocating for the banning of the AR-15 instead of offering heartfelt prayers and gleefully stuffing their campaign coffers with thousands from the NRA.
It’s obvious what rankles Ms. Salinis; she is an illiterate troglodyte who couldn’t handle seeing a young Black female reciting a poem of hope for this country. Nothing in Amanda’s poem remotely suggests what she claims justifies having this book banned. She is an opportunist taking advantage of the dumbass laws DeSantis pushed through his State Legislature to make Florida an autocratic state.
As I stand here and look out upon the thousands of Negro faces, and the thousands of white faces, intermingled like the waters of a river, I see only one face, the face of the future — Martin Luther King, Jr.
In the statement Payton Gendron read, he said; “That day (May 14, 2022), I made a horrible mistake. I killed individuals by shooting them because they were Black." This is an affront to the relatives of those he murdered! No, Payton Gendron, you didn’t make a mistake. You deliberately set out to kill as many Black people as you could.
