Republican Cindy Hyde-Smith is a Mississipi GOP Senator is going into a runoff election against her Democratic opponent, a Black man named Mike Espy who might end up the first Black Mississipi Senator since 1883. She made headlines last week with a joke about attending a "public hanging." She also made public comments in favor of voter suppression.

Google donated $5,000 to her campaign.

Google says they made the donation before they heard about her comments and they never would have donated had they known. However, she espoused hateful views before her recent comments, and Google isn’t asking for its money back.

Convicts are on the front lines fighting California wildfires, earning a fraction of professional firefighters' pay for the same risks and work. Several inmates have died fighting fires since 1983. And yet when prisoners finish they're sentence, they find it hard to become professional firefighters.

Donald Trump’s apparent coziness with anti-Semites is difficult to reconcile with Jared and Ivanka Trump. Jared is the grandson of a Holocaust survivor, and Ivanka converted to Judaism to marry him. They’re not just Jews – they’re Orthodox Jews, who observe the Sabbath every Saturday. And they are also, seemingly, the only people Donald Trump fully and completely trusts, both in business and personally.

I don’t think Donald Trump is himself racist. He doesn’t believe in anything but Donald Trump. I’m reminded of John Goodman’s line in the Big Lebowski: Nazis were awful people, but at least they stood for something. Donald Trump stands for and believes in nothing but Donald Trump.

But Trump’s core, most loyal supporters are racists, and Trump knows it.

The man who yelled "Heil Hitler! Heil Trump!" during a Baltimore performance of "Fiddler on the Roof" was actually very drunk and hates Trump.

Oy, vey.

Excellent tips for a good life, from Reddit.
My career would have been much less bumpy if I’d not taken so long to figure out how far a friendly attitude can get you. I’m still working on it.
