I went through a phase in which I read biographies of powerful women in centuries past, mostly Europe/Russia, so Eleanor of Aquitaine, Catherine the Great, Queen Elizabeth I, Catherine de Medici, etc. But I worked in a large research library and the books were at my fingertips.

A slaver fears the uncontrolled minds of a liberated people. The eruption of white grievance in this country is a direct reaction 2 Black folks hailing OUR own standards along with all marginalized communities who refuse 2 be defined or dictated 2 by a one-size-fits-all, privileged "white standard".

That any behavior that doesn't align with the "white standard" of normalcy & civility isn't acceptable behavior (See Fani Willis, Angel Reese, Colin Kaepernick, Barack Obama, etc.).

The "white standard," says that if enough white people think racism isn't a problem in this country, then it isn't a problem. That if enough white people think Black folks are angry, lazy, thugs, loud, uncivilized, uneducated, unworthy, then that's what Black folks are.
Keith Boykin @keithboykin
A new CBS News poll shows 75 percent of Black people think racism is a major problem in America today, while 58 percent of white people say racism is only a minor problem or not a problem at all.

Mr. Baldwin makes a most excellent point. Our society is woefully comfortable with telling Black folks and members of other marginalized communities to 鈥渨ait鈥. Wait for the laws to change. Wait for viewpoints to change.

You have a knack for expressing my rage.

And the MSM televising this is deplorable, as are the "experts" who sanctimoniously say Willis maybe, possibly said something unhelpful rather than simply stating that this is the racist, misogynoir farce that we all know it is.

The white monster who brutalized Darell Preston is getting off easy. He attacked him and left him to die on the street. Darell is still trying to normalize his life. His GoFundMe is still active and he still needs a lot of help. Please give if you can and keep boosting on all your social media馃憞馃従

Madonna and Jesus were always portrayed as Black until white European artists began changing their image to white.

Black Madonnas - from Melissa Hillman. Link in thread.

There are hundreds of Black Madonnas in European churches. This one is from the Shrine of our Lady of Eisiedeln, Switzerland.

No choice but to be separated. It'd start with a light tap, shared look, pointing with our eyes or lips. We couldn't contain our laughter. A big big no-no during mass. Even apart, kneeling on the pew, leaning back, we'd be at it. Pinches, mouthed, "Vas a ver", couldn't stop us. #contain #Spoutories

Joe Biden is so old that the GOP cannot challenge his Presidential record, so they harp on his age constantly.

#Spoutories #type

I learned to type in high school & because I was fast, I could always get work in an office. I never had to work in retail or food service & I consider it a blessing. Temp work as a typist is easiest of all because you don't have to look busy. Nothing to do? Read at your desk.
