Read the whole thread. I especially like this and the next part. Right to the heart of the matter.

Every person in this nation knows what happened, that it was illegal, and that the organizers and leaders should be in prison

Trials should be over. Time should be being served

That none of them are, and they are all doing it again proves how deeply ingrained white supremacy is

I’m starting to think the Wendy’s surge pricing thing started as a joke. An employee was running late, had to take an Uber, and paid a ridiculous price. Said, “How’d they like it if *we* charged more when it’s busy?” A corporate type in earshot took it from there. Dollar signs in the eyes.

We vote democratic to protect everyone, to prevent harm to people who have no voice or because their voices aren't listened to.

Teenagers, poor, foster kids, the abused, and those who simply want what we all have - 100% autonomy over our bodies.

Period.

We can't go back.

I’m Libra too and share the characteristics you mention, including the non-Libra ones. Except I’ve never felt creative. Maybe in problem-solving but not artistically.
Timara (she/her) @timara
Libra. I'm very justice-minded, need balance and fairness, am creative, and can be indecisive.

Where I'm not Libra-like? I'm not that social and definitely don't have a flock of people around me.

I just figured out why most of my interactions yesterday are 404 today. You brought up a good topic and when I commented (and received replies) it was a lively discussion. I am sorry people were abusive. People should think about why something rubs them the wrong way.

I had spouted something yesterday that many people liked echoed and commented on regarding someone I observed getting short changed on a tip at a restaurant. I was supporting the server. I ended up deleting it this morning because I woke up to ridiculous nasty comments at me. Not here for that!!

I remember the whole neighborhood having measles. Parents visited other households to get kids exposed to get it over with. Mumps. Chicken pox. Also lots of tonsils yanked out. There was a record about Peter Ponsils losing his tonsils and getting ice cream, so we looked forward to it.

I remember having the measles + staying in a dark bedroom... Don't remember what kind... My brothers had mumps -- but not me... I was the first to get a whopping case of chicken pox... Ugh... still have a few scars...

I agree that “uncommitted” is bad for Dems, and “undecided” between Dem and Rep has not made sense to me ever.
Thurgood Du Bois @GodzChild4Eva
Uncommitted?

Who would dare even suggest that writting "uncommitted" on a ballot when democracy, liberty and lives are on the line?

The 1st Reconstruction produced so many laws to make 🇺🇸 be closer to what it claims to be on paper.

Why?

It was 1000s of "committed" freedmen.

I'm not even sure how much of a spoiler candidate he'd be for either party, but his backers are probably hoping he'll damage Biden's chances.

Outraged by OK Sen Tom Woods describing LGBTQIA+ people as "filth" after Nex Benedict's death, I had much to say.

Please read, please share on on other platforms. Let's make him famous.

That idea underlies the plan. Enter eugenics and only a few will be allowed to say who can produce and who can bear children, and whether it’s by choice, coercion, or violence.

Yesterday, during a press scrum at a CPAC conference, Sen. Tommy Tuberville called children a "commodity". WTAF, Tuberville?!

Earlier I stumbled by accident upon this photo, which I actually took exactly one year ago today. I call it:

Unresurrection, 1776

(Locale: 1776 Green Street. Surely some symbolism in there somewhere, no?)

Several spouters already posted this news. Here are my thoughts:

The Texas judge did what many judges do to Black plaintiffs/defendants in court; look for the loophole(s) preventing fair treatment. The Texas CROWN Act omitted a provision covering hair length. The ommission is probably intentional.

This reminds of 2 quotes from Elie Wiesel (paraphrased) “indifference is always the friend of the enemy” & “the opposite of love is not hate, it’s indifference”
Thurgood Du Bois @GodzChild4Eva
🇺🇸 has been telling itself for a long time that it can't fall. It can. And it will if not enough people in it stand up and protect it.

Indifference and lack of urgency will be the end of 🇺🇸.

Okay sure, I've made some silly jokes about the ads. And defended that they are here because obviously the site needs to survive. But this bullshit pisses me off. We shouldn't have to see this inane right wing fuckery just because "ads".

On my iphone some ads have the x in the corner that can be used to give feedback. Ften, the ones that don’t are for games or gambling. On my iPad none of the ads have the x. Are there multiple sources of ads? Should behavior differ by device?

Even with the best intent, you can leave a poor impact. Yes, Black missing children should receive the same focus and attention as white missing children. But also, they could've named it something other than Ebony Alert. Here's why:

I love the idea of Word of the Day, and I wish someone would use that idea but expand it to cultural competence. Imagine every day if you learned something new to expand how you see the world by better understanding the different cultures in the world.

You would think the Church would want to get a better reputation for a change. Instead of reaching out, they keep going after the community they have spent hundreds of years demonizing.

To get rid of it you will have to amend the Constitution and that is not happening. You will never get the required votes to do it. Better to neutralize it by implementing the National Voting Pact.
