    Howard University student Ms. Jordyn Allen.

    On 30 HBCUs targeted by bomb threats:
    “I think what I’d like to see is more awareness specifically from the media. It seems as though if this had happened at a PWI [predominantly white institution] there would be a lot more coverage.”

    • February 18, 2022 at 3:31 pm

      To the point, cannot find video or further info on this video…need more media coverage.
      The marvelous Jordyn Allen describing DeSantis and others affirming only white history, African Americans have always had to overcome denial of knowledge and education about Black history.
      However – HBCUs will continue to step up and make sure it’s not erased…this incredible educational institution is outside of DeSantis (and company) fascist jurisdiction.

    Judge Chu needs to be re-called. Judge Chu needs to be sued and should be sued by the Wright family.

        I heard this last night. Yes, it is perfect, also heartbreaking beyond belief. I felt his pain through my earbud. This injustice has to end. Where? How? When? Heartbreaking…….. 😦

      I wish I could catch up to Jen Psaki’s pressers on the teevee, as before. Not even sure anybody runs them in full now. If they do, I miss them – and her!

    Assault weapons news:
    California is moving forward on legislation modeled after the Texas abortion bill that will allow private citizens to enforce an assault weapons ban.

    “If Texas can use a law to ban a woman’s right to chose and to put her health at risk,
    we will use that same law to save lives and improve the health and safety of the people in the state of California,” Newsom said at a news conference Friday.

    “California’s move is exactly what conservatives and the gun lobby were concerned about when they petitioned the Supreme Court to overturn the Texas abortion law.”

    A Call for Peace:
    Russian & U.S. Women Push for Diplomacy, Not Military Action, to Resolve Crisis

    “U.S. Secretary of State Tony Blinken and Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov have agreed to meet next week as tension remains high over Ukraine. Meanwhile, Russia has announced plans to stage massive drills on Saturday of its nuclear forces, including multiple practice missile launches.

    We speak with Russian journalist Nadezhda Azhgikhina, one of a group of two dozen independent Russian and American women who released an open letter this week calling for peace.

    The letter reads, “We are united in the belief that diplomacy, dialogue, engagement and exchange are urgently needed to end the current crisis and avert a catastrophic military conflict that could spiral out of control — even push the world to the precipice of nuclear war.”

    Well, I made it. ❤ My son's 53rd birthday – being spent in Heaven since he passed away in March 2018 – is coming to a close. Getting calls from his children throughout the day and evening has been wonderful, mostly because he was so funny and goofy and loving that we always end up laughing. I love all of them and am so lucky to have had a son like him! To others in TODville in the same or close scenario, big hugs! To everybody else, big hugs! Especially you, NW! Goodnight and sweet dreams to all.

      Eisenhower’s farewell speech set out everything happening now, he saw it coming, tried to warn the world…

      He knew too well the power grab by the military industrial complex and big pharma was directly in the path to achieving any semblance of world peace and co-operation…

      Listen to it sometime

    We know Trump destroyed documents all throughout his presidency. What I want to know is exactly which ones he handpicked, packed, and stole from the White House. He either wanted to hide them or profit from them.— KD 📚🌎🌊🇺🇸 (@kdnerak33) February 19, 2022

    thank you (nbc) for bringing this feat of technology into the house, the spectacular world of art and athletics.
    Tonight loved seeing exquisite Chen spending time with his friend Bell, and so many huge talents.
    Thanks to the family of Olympic athletes and U.S. olympiads. For our Chinese hosts, who wrote up in lights “Love World” and “One Family” during the finale. Maybe we can dance in a circle with all the people across the world
    as they did tonight, and just play the game of life together, pretty pls?

    Wow: Former top Trump Russia advisor Fiona Hill did NOT mince words: “There's no Team America for Trump. Not once did I see him do anything to put America first. Not once. Not for a single second." Spread this everywhere.— Really American 🇺🇸 (@ReallyAmerican1) February 21, 2022

    The DOJ investigated Clinton over her emails. Repeatedly.Now it’s been confirmed that Trump took classified materials to Mar-a-Lago in violation of law.It’s one thing for Trump to be breathtakingly hypocritical.But the DOJ must enforce the law – consistently.— Adam Schiff (@RepAdamSchiff) February 20, 2022
