The mysterious deaths of two young BLM protesters in Ferguson, Missouri


Police say there is no evidence the deaths have anything to do with the protests stemming from a white police officer’s fatal shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown, and that only two were homicides with no known link to the protests.

— Edward Crawford Jr., 27, fatally shot himself in May 2017 after telling acquaintances he had been distraught over personal issues, police said. A photo of Crawford firing a tear gas canister back at police during a Ferguson protest was part of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch’s Pulitzer Prize-winning coverage.

Bush said her car has been run off the road, her home has been vandalized, and in 2014 someone shot a bullet into her car, narrowly missing her daughter, who was 13 at the time.

Bleeding heart Trump ally ditched from Fox News


Two knowledgeable sources confirmed that Clarke is also no longer a senior adviser and spokesman for pro-Drumpf super PAC America First Action, where he landed in late 2017 after he resigned as sheriff and was repeatedly blocked from getting a position in the Drumpf administration. (For instance, Drumpf’s former chief strategist Steve Bannon wanted to hire Clarke as a White House official, primarily to make TV appearances and take on members of the media.)

Several months later, he lashed out at Fox News for having “crawled into bed with CNN” by backing the rival network’s lawsuit against the Drumpf administration for stripping CNN reporter Jim Acosta’s White House access. He then declared that insurgent right-wing cable network One America News—which sided with Drumpf—has “some balls,” by comparison.

Because facts and the Constitution don't matter when you therefore had to side with a liberal broadcaster. It's all about having the balls to... Show more...

Review on Toni Morrison's latest book, "Mouth Full Of Blood"


Organised into three parts titled “The Foreigner’s Home”, “Black Matter(s)”, and “God’s Language”, each section begins with a moving address to the dead: respectively, to those who died on September 11, Martin Luther King and James Baldwin. “The Foreigner’s Home” is centred on politics, particularly on questions of otherness, foreignness, citizenship and nationalism. Of who, especially in the US, gets to belong. Morrison makes plain that racism, tribalism and bigotry are nothing new – are, in fact, inherent to the broken foundation on which the nation was formed.

“Porous borders are understood in some quarters to be areas of threat and certain chaos, and whether real or imagined, enforced separation is posited as the solution,” she says. “It may be that the most defining characteristic of our times is that, again, walls and weapons feature as prominently now as they once did in medieval times.”...

#Senate about to read the report on Russian trolls colluding general election 2016


"The first objective of the Russians was to sow doubt, discord and discontent in this country, and they've succeeded to it fairly well -- capitalizing and exploiting the polarization and divisiveness in this country," Clapper said.
[...]
"They had messages for everybody in the campaign, whether it was Black Lives Matter, white supremacists, gun control advocates, Second Amendment advocates," he said. "The Russians are always looking for issues to exploit to their advantage."

Good to know that we finally have a report stating the same thing that every regular internet frequenter could have told you if he didn't jump upon the #Trump train already. But well, the senate relies on verified data, so that was merely a formula necessary to seal everything.

On racial bias in everyday life in #Britain


The survey found that 43% of those from a minority ethnic background had been overlooked for a work promotion in a way that felt unfair in the last five years – more than twice the proportion of white people (18%) who reported the same experience.

Just tell me more about this great replacement happening in Europe, I'm all ears. Because, so far, it seems like minorities who are still minorities are being discriminated for who they are. Thus, how can one say that a great replacement is happening when minorities can't grasp an overall majority and are still subordinated as second-class people? Let's face it: When you're afraid of minorities, you're not worried, you're racist.

The "Daughter of a Bitch" took a knee during the national anthem


President Trump welcomed the move, saying players who do not stand "maybe... shouldn't be in the country".

And that's why Donnie stands for a paralyzedd form of patriotism, and also shows us why patriotism only divides a country. It's a toxic blending of nationalism and false values. You cannot deport people who criticise the flaws of your country, this is a crime by itself.

"If I was still a cheerleader, I wouldn't kneel down, it's not my job," one told the magazine. "I would be frustrated about what's going on in the country, but I would put my thoughts and opinions to the side and keep on moving."

Ignoring the flaws in your life and trying to simply deal with them will only enlarge those problems until you cannot ignore them anymore, on a scale in whiche they will possibly become too large to deal with them anymore.

The last time I cared, Nike was known for using #ChildLabor and #slaves to make their shoes. I don't think anything has changed. I suppose it is admirable, for some reason, that they are giving money to Colin Kaepernik to be a spokesmodel, or what have you. But y'know... If they weren't giving millions of dollars to spokesmodels, it's conceivable that they could be using #workers instead of #childSlaves to make their shoes. I support #ColinKaepernick and his right to #FreeSpeech. I support #BlackLivesMatter. I believe we need to change the way police are trained. I believe we need to move toward rectifying the crimes of history in some way. But Nike is a company that is paving a path to a world where spokesmodels are paid millions to hock $1 shoes made by slaves.
 
"Executive directors of nonprofit organizations who don’t find a way to support the right Democrats in primary season and all Democrats in general election put their careers, the livelihoods of all their employees, and the outfit’s good works in jeopardy. And there are the unions – heavily public sector and disproportionately people of color, again all tied to the most right wing established Democrats on the local, state and federal level."
