I Once Overlooked HBCUs. Hannah-Jones’ Decision Reminded Me of Their Power.

Lots of love for HBCUs in here.
And lessons for all, but especially for FOUR of our fellow posters.


QUOTE

...My understanding that HBCUs weren’t as good as predominantly white institutions was part and parcel of a broader indoctrination, one that few of us escape, regardless of race. My indoctrination meant no matter the depth of my academic success, I doubted myself because that success was accomplished at a nearly all-Black segregated high school in a rural part of South Carolina. In my muddled mind, academic excellence could only be attained in the presence of white people, could only be achieved if acknowledged by them...

Even now at the age of 48, I have to fight off a soft voice in my head telling me Black people really aren’t the equal of white people, that racial disparities mean there is something wrong with us rather than what we’ve been born into.

That’s after proving my worth as a Black student at an elite, mostly-white liberal arts college—the same college where I now teach. That’s after being paid to spend a year at Harvard University, after writing a few books, being published in several dozen top outlets. That’s after raising two beautiful Black kids and being married to a beautiful Black woman for nearly 23 years.

I didn’t even learn of the term critical race theory until I was an adult watching my wife study for her doctorate in literacy and learning. I didn’t know I needed something like it to help me grapple with thoughts of racial inferiority rooted in a slate of racial disparities too often written off as individual failure rather than evidence of systemic problems and a legacy that has roots in the founding of a country that once embraced race-based chattel slavery...

The Republican Party's gothic contempt turns politics on its head

QUOTE

...Again, the Republicans do not have policy objectives requiring bipartisan support. They don't need, nor seem to want, to persuade a majority of Americans to come around to their side. They can therefore indulge in gothic politics so that up is down, left is right, wrong is right and the Democratic Party is always this close to Nazism....

'We Build the Wall' co-founder faces another indictment on tax charge

It is hilarious that our resident arsehole tries [ EPIC FAIL] to make a point by gleefully pointing out one or two Dems or Liberals who get in trouble with the law.

If they break it, they should face the music.

BUT,...
The list of fFar fRight fWingers being INDICTED, ARRESTED and PROSECUTED is so long that it's in the HUNDREDS.

A former Fox exec blasted the network for peddling Trump's election-fraud claims and airing anti-mask comments...

QUOTE
In an op-ed published Sunday by The Daily Beast, Preston Padden, who served as president of network distribution at the Fox Broadcasting Company for seven years, wrote that Fox News is a TV channel "that no reasonable person would believe."

Padden wrote that Fox News had perpetuated former President Donald Trump's "wild and false claims" that the 2020 election was stolen from him and that Fox's decision to question masks had contributed to "the unnecessary deaths of many Americans" during the COVID-19 pandemic.

And, CLEARLY, #3TimeLoser45 bears responsibility for hundreds of thousands of deaths in the USA.

His recorded call with Woodward demonstrates he knew how serious COVID was - from almost the beginning, but...

He panicked and punked out because he knew a bunch of his supporters were/are anti-vaxxers.  He thereby undermined his own positive efforts to speed up vaccine development.

Took his own vaccine shot in secret for the same reason.  Rather than serve as an example to his supporters and help save their lives, he chose to suck up to the very small minority who question science, hate and threaten Fauci and believe in unfounded conspiracies.

He's a despicable and dangerous excuse for a human being.

Trump has cut off Rudy Giuliani, and is annoyed that he asked to be paid for his work on challenging the election, book says

QUOTE
...reports have detailed how Giuliani and his allies have sought to get paid for the legal work, but to no avail, falling foul of the president in the process.

"Trump is annoyed that he [Giuliani] tried to get paid for his election challenge work," Wolff wrote, per The Times.

"Giuliani, now beset by crushing investigations and potentially millions of dollars in legal costs, has publicly implored the Trump family and aides ... to have the Trump campaign, with its great wealth, indemnify him - and has gotten only the cold shoulder."

Trump's family has "cast out, cut off" Giuliani,...

Former Trump attorney who vowed to 'release the Kraken' facing sanction hearing in Detroit

Frank Witsil, Detroit Free Press
Mon, June 21, 2021, 2:24 PM
DETROIT – Attorneys who made false claims in court filings after the 2020 general election to reverse election results to favor former President Donald Trump have been summoned to appear in Detroit for a sanctions hearing.

Federal judge Linda Parker ordered Sidney Powell and other attorneys who had represented Trump in an election results dispute last year to appear in court at 2 p.m. July 6.

Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel has asked the court to sanction Powell, a Texas lawyer, along with Michigan attorneys Greg Rohl, Scott Hagerstrom and Stefanie Junttila, for pursuing a case that sought to overturn state election results based on lies.

Greene’s ahistorical claim that the Nazis were socialists

QUOTE

The Facts
The full name of Hitler’s party was Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei. In English, that translates to National Socialist German Workers’ Party. But it was not a socialist party; it was a right-wing, ultranationalist party dedicated to racial purity, territorial expansion and anti-Semitism — and total political control.
[...]

The Nazi party was largely supported by small-business men and conservative industrialists, not the proletariat. Still, left-wing parties such as the Communists and Social Democrats were major parties in 1920s Germany so the inclusion of “socialist” in the party’s name was attractive to working-class voters who might also be anti-Semitic. Hitler adamantly rejected socialist ideas, dismantled or banned left-leaning parties and disapproved of trade unions. In many countries, trade unions played important roles in socialist movements or helped launch political movements that eventually adopted socialist platforms.

Using ONLY the name of an organization to characterize it is the same mistake someone would make if they did that with the "Moral Majority."

Exclusive: Inside the Military's Secret Undercover Army


From NEWSWEEK
QUOTE
The largest undercover force the world has ever known is the one created by the Pentagon over the past decade. Some 60,000 people now belong to this secret army, many working under masked identities and in low profile, all part of a broad program called "signature reduction." The force, more than ten times the size of the clandestine elements of the CIA, carries out domestic and foreign assignments, both in military uniforms and under civilian cover, in real life and online, sometimes hiding in private businesses and consultancies, some of them household name companies.

The unprecedented shift has placed an ever greater number of soldiers, civilians, and contractors working under false identities, partly as a natural result in the growth of secret special forces but also as an intentional response to the challenges of traveling and operating in an increasingly transparent world. The explosion of Pentagon cyber warfare, moreover, has led to thousands of spies who carry out their day-to-day work in various made-up personas, the very type of nefarious operations the United States decries when Russian and Chinese spies do the same.

Newsweek's exclusive report on this secret world is the result of a two-year investigation involving the examination of over 600 resumes and 1,000 job postings, dozens of Freedom of Information Act requests, and scores of interviews with participants and defense decision-makers. What emerges is a window into not just a little-known sector of the American military, but also a completely unregulated practice. No one knows the program's total size, and the explosion of signature reduction has never been examined for its impact on military policies and culture. Congress has never held a hearing on the subject. And yet the military developing this gigantic clandestine force challenges U.S. laws, the Geneva Conventions, the code of military conduct and basic accountability.....
