A poignant moment at @SenGillibrand's Youngstown, OH roundtable occurred when a white woman holding her baby asked her about how Dems talk about white privilege while she is still struggling. Gillibrand took a beat, and then answered the woman’s question. Full exchange below:
McConnell likens himself to Obama: We both are the descendants of slave owners https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/congress/mcconnell-likens-himself-obama-we-both-are-descendants-slave-owners-n1027921?cid=public-rss_20190709 …
I anxiously await Joe Biden waxing poetic about those fun days working with McConnell in the Senate. McC is evil, plain as that.
Rosedale, Queens (1978). By the mid-1970s, Black middle-class families were moving into the all-white neighborhood. Tensions rose, even amongst children. Here's a clip illustrating this tension.
An entire generation of black children were Guinea pigs and took this type of abuse, often in silence so that their parents wouldn't feel guilty. Really pisses me off.
Suzanne Collins announced that she'll be writing a HUNGER GAMES prequel novel. It'll be set in the world of Panem 64 years before the events of the original Hunger Games trilogy on the morning of the reaping of the 10th Hunger Games. Lionsgate are in talks to adapt the book.
Hmm excited initially but Fantastic Beasts, Star Wars Episodes 1-3 and other prequels have soured me.
This is hands-down the story I get asked to tell most by my community. Asked for years in tweets. Black Wall Street. Tulsa Riots. A white mob incinerated the once prosperous black town of Greenwood in 1921. Octavia Spencer is making the story. I look forward to watching her work.
I'm on a listserv and people talking about how long they have to wait to adopt a healthy white baby because all of these girls are having abortions. Understand that this abortion issue has some ugly bedfellows in the newborn infant adoption industry.
If a fetus is a person at 6 weeks pregnant, is that when the child support starts? Is that also when you can’t deport the mother because she’s carrying a US citizen? Can I insure a 6 week fetus and collect if I miscarry? Just figuring if we’re going here we should go all in.
