I knew I was on the path to understanding when, in response to me saying discussion needs to start with an agreed definition of racism, the other (white) person responded with "It disgusts me that you think you should have a say in that definition," - and instead of getting defensive I actually THOUGHT about that point.

OH: "It's fascinating to me how some people's "don't speak ill of the recently dead" policy, which they've gotten in my face with several times in the past, suddenly grinds to a halt right at the coffin of Hugh Hefner."

It is 50 degrees outside right now. At noon. Last week at this time it was pushing 90. But climate change is a hoax.

Saw some asshat today asking "where is the convoy to Houston?" Right there, how about your Nazis? https://www.buzzfeed.com/craigsilverman/conservative-fb-pages-spreading-false-claim-about-blm?utm_te...

If you claim that killing/enslaving/imprisoning/removing people of another race is a valid ideology then you're a Nazi sympathizer - at BEST

Listen people, it's not about getting rid of history. It's not about destroying art or even statues. It's about STOPPING the celebration of racism and racist ideas. 'Cause that's what a Confederate icon, whether it be a flag or statue, is - the symbol and celebration of a people who tried to start their own country because they'd been told they couldn't own people any more.

I've often wondered what ever became of some of the folktales we heard as kids. Today I was tickled to learn that John Henry, and references to the ballad, can be found in a handful of modern video games :-)

Earlier today did I say, "Okay Google, set a timer for 1 hour," to remind myself to check if the build is done? Yes, yes I did.
