There's also a trend to make black people more inclusive in the H-I-V drug commercials.  Imagine that. :shrug:

I don't understand your point?  Are you saying this is good because African Americans now make up a majority of the new hiv infections rate, and should be targeted with those ads. Or do you feel  [b]the ads are somehow a misrepresentation, and display a disparaging image of the African American community.[/b]  :shrug:

My sentiment was regarding your 2nd point, Capler! :nod:

My feeling is that the ads are targeting an at risk population, -black women, in an attempt to minimize the social stigma of being hiv positive.  The gay community has always been targeted with resources and information, so I see this as being a new frontier.

I've never watched this show. Is each season independent of the other?

IT IS ON FX.  YOU MUST SEE THE ORIGINAL MOVIE ON WHICH THE TV SHOW IS BASED.  AN ABSOLUTELY GREAT MOVIE.  :nod:

I watched the movie long ago, but the TV show didn't interest me.

 My question, is season 4 dependent on having watched the previous 3?

We will be back... :tongue2:

I didn't realize NCCU was having a bad year.

Speaking of NCCU, if Moton had Roy's players with the same schedule and injuries he'd have a Top 25 team.



We have a couple of guys injured too.

Florida Supreme Court sides with DeSantis, rules convicted felons must pay off fines before voting

Florida's Supreme Court has sided with Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis by ruling that some convicted felons should be required to pay off any fines or fees before they can regain their right to vote.

The court released an advisory opinion Thursday affirming the language used by DeSantis in response to Amendment 4, a change to the state's constitution in 2018 to restore voting rights to nearly 1.4 million ex-felons. Before the amendment, voting rights had been revoked for anyone convicted of a felony in Florida.

The governor wanted clarification from the court over certain language added to the law, which said that rights would be restored “upon completion of all terms of sentence including parole or probation."

The Governor asks whether the phrase 'all terms of sentence' encompasses legal financial obligations (LFOs)—fines, restitution, costs, and fees ordered by the sentencing court," the opinion said.

The court responded: "We answer in the affirmative, concluding that 'all terms of sentence' encompasses not just durational periods but also all LFOs imposed in conjunction with an adjudication of guilt."

DeSantis said Thursday he was "pleased" with the court's decision.

 RICHMOND — The Virginia Supreme Court has upheld Gov. Ralph Northam’s temporary ban on guns in Capitol Square, which went into effect Friday at 5 p.m. and will continue through a major gun-rights rally scheduled for Monday.

Concern about the rally, which organizers warn could attract tens of thousands of armed protesters, escalated in Richmond Friday when President Trump drew attention to it on Twitter.

“Your 2nd Amendment is under very serious attack in the Great Commonwealth of Virginia,” Trump tweeted. “That’s what happens when you vote for Democrats, they will take your guns away. Republicans will win Virginia in 2020. Thank you Dems!”

Northam (D) announced the ban Wednesday as part of declaring a state of emergency, citing “credible intelligence” that some groups had threatened violent demonstrations against gun control laws being considered by the state legislature.


On Thursday, the FBI arrested three alleged members of a white supremacist group on gun charges, partly out of concern that they planned to attend the Richmond rally and incite violence.

Yeah, all that bloviation aside, Roy has underperformed in the #1 seat of late @ Chapel Hill and in my view, is a fraud and starting to slip.
If he has underperformed, every coach has underperformed in D1 basketball! No coach has won more NCAA titles than Roy since he came to UNC in 2003. Injuries have killed this team and you can't see that. It's hard to win when you got three or more rotation players that are out every game. As I said, UNC didn't play with no true point guard last game because all of them were injured. Btw, I guess Dean underperformed because Roy has one more NCAA title than him.

is it not Roy fault he doesn't have a PG? He is the one who pissed 7th Woods off by recruiting over him yearly, bet he could use him now
It isn't his fault that three-point guards are injured. He can't control that. He recruited over Woods because Woods isn't a starting PG in D1. Coach K, Cal, and all the elite coaches recruit over players all the time.
