    The Dove Ad Is What Happens When 'Diversity' Is Just A Buzzword

    The online ad featuring black women gleefully transforming into a white women (ostensibly through the power of Dove soap), is not the first racially tone-deaf ad to draw the ire of the public, and it certainly will not be the last.

    ‘ANTIFA’ WAGING CIVIL WAR ON NOVEMBER 4, ACCORDING TO RIGHT WING CONSPIRACY
    BY MICHAEL EDISON HAYDEN

    ... The idea of “Antifa” (short for anti-fascism) has become a fixture in America’s popular imagination in the wake of President Donald Trump’s election, albeit in a way that tends to have very little basis in reality. The group—which has no formal organizational structure, and is best defined as a tactic associated with protesting against the threat of fascism—has been falsely blamed for everything from the deadly mass shooting in Las Vegas to covert collaborations with the Islamic State militant group (ISIS). Now, “antifa” is apparently plotting a civil war in the United States that will begin on November 4, according to a pervasive right wing conspiracy theory ...

    ... Charlie Wilson, Cleveland Larkin, and Willustus “Lusk” Holley were walking down a dirt road in rural Slocum, Texas when they were blindsided by a mob of armed white men. On their way to tend to family livestock on July 29, 1910, the three black teenagers became the first casualties of what would turn out to be a shameful massacre — with groups of white Texans going from road to road, house to house, shooting black citizens. Wilson and Holley survived the attack, but Larkin succumbed to the injuries ...

    The Poor can’t even be Poor

    If you paint for me even one thing which is true, perhaps I’ll be tempted to consider two. I tell tales poetically, someone else needs to set them to music.
    Oct 11

    There are many ways to be poor, most of them not fun. Poverty most commonly and most clearly strikes in the realm of resources. When one is economically poor they are short of basic resources like healthy food, water, clothing and shelter.

    When a person is biologically poor or anatomically impoverished they may have disabilities or severe…

    Associated Press

    ... The new name honors black rancher and prospector William Grandstaff, whose cattle grazed there in the 1870s.
    "His name was Grandstaff; it was not Negro Bill," said Wendi-Starr Brown, a member of the federal board who is Native American. "I'm pretty sure that's not how he wanted to be addressed in life" ...

    Utah's 'Negro Bill Canyon' renamed after years of debate
