Well, this is going to piss off a certain racist residing in the White House. 

Courtesy of YouTube:

In a county just outside of Washington, a small all-black high school football team has started kneeling during the national anthem at their games. They say they are protesting against police brutality — both what they see on social media and what they’ve faced in their lives.

Brave young men who are clearly not going to allow themselves to be bullied into silence.

    Like Bristol said to a friend, until a man heals himself he will be toxic to every woman who tries to love him. Proud of her for standing up for herself. Her sister told her to leave him last November when he was saying she’s the best in the world. Bristols never the problem in a relationship and she’s never denied her flaws. She will always choose independence. Never been needy and never relied on a man. Her sister admires that about her.

    Also proud she won’t put Dakota ls shit and respects him as a dad. He doesn’t deserve how amazing she is.

    Yesterday at the Cowboys football game in Dallas someone protested during the national anthem. This person walked up and down on the roof in front of the field seats carrying a sign and yelling. At the end of the anthem, this person was escorted back to his seat by security and was allowed to stay. You probably correctly guessed the facts:
    1. This was a white man.
    2. He was yelling and the sign read “Stop abortion” and “Vote republican”

    Now, any guess what would have happened to this person if he or she was a person of color and/or if the message was different?

    OT?
    “the white people in the community. There is no doubt, of course, that white people did the lynching; blood is on their hands. But white people also watched, encouraged, celebrated, took pictures and mementoes, picnicked. Lynchings were often a festive occasion for whites. And afterward, white people were silent. The racial message had been sent. Nothing more needed to be said, and few white people had the conviction or courage to speak up and challenge or to simply be a witness to the inhumanity. Even the white people who stayed home were complicit.” “lynching as “fast violence.” Fast violence today takes place when black people are shot and killed by police officers. “Slow violence,” in contrast, results from institutional structures that perpetuate harm along racial lines. Slow violence is higher lead concentrations in predominantly black communities, lower maternal health, more vulnerability to economic reverses because of less historical access to wealth.” “To face up. To witness. To name. To engage in the conversation.”

    “the Associated Press reported that his office had frozen 53,000 voter registrations ahead of the midterm elections, more than 70 percent of which were linked to African Americans.

    Abrams has accused her opponent of using his office to “maliciously … suppress the vote for political gain and silence the voices of thousands of eligible voters” ― claims Kemp has denied.

    In the video, the student walks up to Perdue and asks about his support of Kemp, saying: “Hey, so, uh, how can you endorse a candidate…”

    Before the man can finish his question, Perdue appears to grab the phone while saying “I’m not doing that.”

    “You stole my property,” the student fires back. “Give me my phone back, senator.”
    ““the senator clearly thought he was being asked to take a picture, and he went to take a selfie as he often does.”

    “When he realized they didn’t actually want to take a picture, he gave the phone back,” “the lawmaker chose to “suddenly, and violently [take] their phone without justification or provocation.”

    OT?FB>”Of all the stories out there demanding the attention of the public, some very serious ones are in great danger of being overlooked.
    A perfect case in point is the drastic policy changes taking place at the Department of Education under Secretary Betsy DeVos. The Washington Post, NY Times, and others have done great reporting about decisions that are being made that are already shaping the lives of literally millions of Americans. It should be a cause of great alarm, and it’s a topic that deserves a lot more scrutiny.
    That is why I’m excited to announce a new documentary called FAIL STATE about “for profit” colleges and student loan debt. Produced in part by my team at News and Guts, the film is a deep digging investigation that I think will shock many viewers. The Hollywood Reporter has all the details.”

    “Veteran newsman Dan Rather serves as executive producer on the doc, which carries the tagline “Subprime Goes to College,” a reference to the subprime lending industry, and which traces the rise of for-profit colleges, aided by Wall Street backing and enabled by politicians, casting a critical eye on how such schools exploit low-income and minority students.”

    “Black Voters Matter, an advocacy group that helped Doug Jones win his Senate seat in Alabama late last year, is currently on a bus tour it has called “The South is Rising.” The group is traveling across seven southern states, undertaking voter outreach and engagement, as well as providing disaster relief in parts of Georgia affected by Hurricane Michael.

    Black Voters Matter organizers said they did not know who called the commissioner, but said they presume it was someone who was scared by the sight of black people celebrating and preparing to vote.

    “Even in the absence of law, they will use tactics like intimidation and voter suppression,” Brown said. “Somebody called the county commission, but there was nothing illegal or inappropriate.””

    OT FB excerpt .’
    I am a product of public schools, and proudly so. Even in the midst of so many crises in our national moment, I hope that the plight of public education is not overlooked. Our classrooms can serve, must serve, as incubators: for our common decency, for our sense of fairness, for our bonds of citizenship and for the foundation of a more just nation.
    I was reminded of all this in an emotional return last week to Love Elementary in Houston, where I first set foot more than 80 years ago
    (to write the sentence is to catch my breath in wonder at this span of time).

    “This is about community, and fairness, and justice, and hope. It’s about the belief that public education must be part of the great national spirit of equal opportunity. Educating our children – all of our children – must be part of what unites us!
    As I left, my eyes a bit more misty than I would like to admit, I couldn’t help thinking that this world would be doing a lot better if there was a bit more Love.” <Dan the Man Rather

    "Love was honored to have Mr. Dan Rather join us as we planted a new tree in his honor. "Contemplate the trees!" – a beautiful symbol and great day for our students."

    For a little something lighter, check out the Iowa State halftime show tribute to Jurassic Park. A field full of dancing T-Rexes. Enough to bring a smile to your face.
