    None of my high school teachers were like Mr. Taylor. This thread has a very important message to share.

      Good to see Joe not being afraid to be out in front of this issue. I will admit that I have always felt that he was more about the type of democrats of his father’s time and class who turned into Reagan voters. He and others of his age would really like working class white voters to come back so that they would not have to depend on Black voters to get elected. However, I still intended to vote for him because there is no other choice even if he still feels this way (which I think he does to a certain extent). Black folks are not looking for purity, we are looking at whatever we can get knowing it will not be all that we need or want but this is better than nothing which is what we get from republicans in power. Joe has seen the data that all of us have seen and he knows that Black voters in SC put the wind beneath his wings that set him on the course to victory.

    This thread seems so promising that I’m crossing my fingers, hoping and hoping that it’s mostly true. It would be so great for our collective psyches to see the faux-president start to receive his just desserts!

          Almost. I finish all instruction tomorrow; then next week, although I’m staying home, my students will be coming up to return their textbooks, etc making sure to follow social distancing procedures, etc. Monday and Tuesday is for my 8th graders. I will be putting their final grades into a grading program by Wednesday. I’ve already gone up to clean up my classroom, so technically I’m off for the summer after I get my grades in. So glad. I’m looking forward to being away from my computer and doing other things.

      A bunch of us 70-something women stood with her today (including my two sisters, in their homes!). We all cried through the entire memorial service. Feels like it’s been a whole lifetime of watching these events – and technically it’s been since the events of the 1960s when most of my generation was first awakened.

      Make it stop.

    This is one more reason why I’ve always side-eyed Cuomo.

    Even in his handling of the Coronvairus cases in New York, Black and Brown lives have never been a priority of his.

      I didn’t even have to scroll down the thread. I saw the jeans on the ground behind him and knew immediately he was one of the blue thugs who stepped over and walked pass that old man with blood running out of his ears after they knocked him down and heard his head crack on the pavement. Ugh!
