The Texas Judge's ruling – and Barbers Hill Independent School District's view of Darryl George's hair has everything to do with blatant racism – and nothing to do with fairness, objectivity, logic, or education.

Racists rationalizing their racism.

I don't know why it's true but it is: The Happy Prince, by Oscar Wilde, is the book or story that has most affected me ever since I read it as a young child.

I see no difference between P. T. Barnum ("There's a sucker born every minute) and The Former Guy ("Buy my $400 sneakers because I'm broke.")

Have you ever wondered why Germans didn’t do anything about Hitler? Well, the rest of the world is wondering exactly that about Americans and Trump.

I've checked my history of blocking people. Nearly 100% of the people I've blocked are reactionary American "Christian" straight men. There are a few RACS women - very few! - but mostly it's men. Generally spewing pure racist filth but demanding to be heard.

Did you learn in school how Black activists during WWII went to the West Coast to protect Japanese Americans and their property when the U.S. government put them in interment camps and their biggest advocate was a gay Black man? I didn’t think so.

Judging someone for being a bigot is NOT equivalent to bigots' prejudice against marginalized groups. Not remotely. It's an absurd argument that at best shows one's ignorance...but more likely reveals one's bigoted views.

I have one thing to say about the recent data breach: I went to look and see how many times my email has been “pwned”. It’s 9 in the past 5 years. I’ve been told by the owner of the site in exactly one of them: Spoutible. @cbouzy ‘s transparency and integrity are unassailable and all I need to know.

If Biden wins (and he very likely will), & if he can flip the House (likely) & retain the Senate (🤞🤞🙏)...what's already started strong will go down as one of the greatest & most consequential presidencies ever.

"Taylor Swift's politics can be summed up as:

1. Register to vote and vote in every election.

2. Be kind to each other.

And this is what scares Republicans."

Dear MAGA:

Now, every time you give money to Trump — you’re really giving it to E. Jean Carroll — and soon, to the state of New York.

Hugs n kisses,

So if Texas were to secede:

- Republicans would lose 40 electoral votes

- Republicans would lose 25 seats in the House and 2 seats in the Senate

- Thereby giving Democrats a lock on the White House and Congress

But sure, y’all go on ahead and secede.

The ONLY questions for civil rights should be "How can I expand them?"; "How can I protect them"; and "How can I restore them?" That's it. Anything else is just pure malarkey and laziness.

“I tell people that my journey into learning Haitian Creole was an entirely unexpected thing—I had no intention of learning a new language in my 60s, let alone have a goal to become fluent enough to talk to Haitian people naturally and easily as if I had been speaking the language my entire life.”

This has been a hard week for me, grieving.

I don't think grief is something to understand. It's not something to shut down or deny.

It is just something to feel until whatever part of us that needs the grief has reassembled into acceptance.

But it's hitting so very hard right now.

I've been working on learning Haitian Creole for almost two years now.

Daily work listening, writing, speaking, reading.

This is one of those days where it seems futile because fluency is out there beyond Jupiter and I have only a six-foot-tall ladder to gain ascendancy.

Sigh...

Do you ever find that some days the grief of missing a friend who has died before you is just overwhelming?

Sometimes it just hits hard.

May flights of angels sing you to your rest, friend.

In response to Ola.
My son once told me that when people tell women how to dress to avoid rape, what they’re saying is make sure YOU aren’t the one the rapist attacks tonight.

Our society is about regulating women, not stopping rapists.
