    Good afternoon everyone. Our President is wise and compassionate

    Congratulatiosn on First, desertflower. Yes, indeed, he is. His kindness and generous spirit saw us through unbearable tragedies and incomprehensible sorrows — he could not change what happened but his presence and example lifted everyone and saw us through. I miss him every single day. Reminders bothered me for a while, but now I seek them out, and find them comforting and reinvigorating. Knowing that he and his family are happy and thriving is a good thing that I can take happiness from every time. Thank you for this lovely and eloquent post, NerdyWonka. What a thoughtful balm on a day of loss and grief. The amazing grace of Dr. King’s presence in this world blesses us to this day. His words and lessons ring truer and stand the test of time.

    This is a link to a feature on Blavity this morning. I loved it, with its listing of fifty, count-’em, folks, 50 excellent accomplishments by African Americans over the past fifty years. In no way an exhaustive list, not that there were only fifty, but I cherish the turning of the large number into a list of examples of Dr. King’s presence in the world to this day.

    This makes an old man like me cry. We must never forget how that angelic man we know as Pres. Barack Obama came to earth and brought healing and wholeness to a broken world. He is forever an example to us all of goodness and strength in the face of darkness.

    Many folks have asked…why do we continue to fight the same battles over and over again….

    i think that there is an answer in this article…


    Negroes have proceeded from a premise that equality means what it says, and they have taken white Americans at their word when they talked of it as an objective. But most whites in America … proceed from a premise that equality is a loose expression for improvement. White America is not even psychologically organized to close the gap–essentially it seeks only to make it less painful and less obvious but in most respects to retain it.

    -1 step forward…2 steps back-

    Even among some stalwart Democrats we hear demands that more attention should be given to blue collar, white workers and to those economically left behind in rural America or the Rust Belt. This dovetails with the conservative view of the “forgotten” American, who always happens to be white.

      Why are white cops so afraid of Black men? All of the violence comes from the police, not these unarmed men that they kill like rats in the street. The SPLC sent out warnings years ago about how so many white supremacists were joining law enforcement departments with the express purpose of harming minorities, especially Black and brown men. Black people have no power, wealth, or influence. We run nothing in this country and no matter how smart, gifted, talented or beautiful we are, dealing with race hatred toward us is an everyday reality. I have long held that the major reason that so many white people hate us is because of their guilt and fear. They do not want to face or deal honestly with what their hate has done to us and they fear that if we get in power that we will do to them what they have done to us. Many stockpiled guns when BO was president because they thought that they would finally have to start paying for their sins. So sick of this shit.

    …”I think that he would be impressed about all the work that we’re doing,” Yolanda Renee King said during an interview Wednesday on ABC’s “Good Morning America.” …During the Wednesday interview, Yolanda’s mother said it was “difficult” to watch her daughter take after her grandfather. “It was a bit difficult but because she has been so interested in the issue for so long and so passionate about it and wanted to do it, it was natural,” Arndrea King said. …

      Our former governor, Phil Bredesen, who is running for senate against Marsha, Marsh, Marsha Blackburn has an ad that says the same thing, just different wording/phrasing. See below………..

      Bredesen says he learned long ago to “separate the message from the messenger.”

      Bredesen is running as a moderate Democrat who will work across party lines for a red state that strongly supported Trump in 2016.

      In the ad, Bredesen says there are a lot of things he doesn’t personally like about Trump. But Bredesen says if the president has an idea that’s good for Tennesseans, he’ll be for it, and if he thinks a Trump idea won’t be good for Tennesseans, he’ll be against it.

      Republican U.S. Rep. Marsha Blackburn, who has said she’s a “hardcore, card-carrying Tennessee conservative,” is closely aligning with Trump in her Senate bid.

    Here is something Michelle said today, and we know exactly what she meant. She said, It felt like the eight years that Barack was President, it was sort of like having the good parent at home, the responsible parent …and now perhaps we have the other parent .
