Bluesman Muddy Waters (1913 - 1983) was born this day. His famous songs include "Hoochie Coochie Man," "Mannish Boy," and "Rollin' Stone," (1950) which the UK band The Rolling Stones and the magazine Rolling Stone named themselves after.  From +American Masters PBS 
Over three and a half-decades, Muddy Waters’ band became a springboard for many of his sidemen, launching a prominent school of blues performers.

Not will a lot of people act many people feel as thou that was then this is know. May we all gain knowledge of our selves and our history. This alone will bring self rectification. Most people my age can be angry and posses but it doesn't amount to nothing but race violence. May u be blessed for enlightening our minds with history we tend even as African Americans to hide in dark

Interesting read from @NPRcodeSwitch: Who Gets To Be A Superhero? Race And Identity In Comics: http://n.pr/1AqOCMc
Artist Orion Martin recently posted several images reimagining X-Men characters as people of color. This touched off a conversation about race in comic book worlds, and how these comic book depictions relate to real life.

So, what do you think?
Tavis Smiley doesn’t seem to be a fan of Lee Daniels’ hit Fox series, Empire. During an interview on PoliticKING With Larry King, King and Smiley spoke about diversity in Hollywood and Smiley critiqued the show and its lack of positive characters. He also alluded to the fact that it...

We treat racism like it’s going extinct. It’s not (from +PBS NewsHour)
http://to.pbs.org/1FUO5sr
When 28-year-old George Zimmerman killed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin on a residential Sanford, Florida street in February 2012, after trailing the hoodie-clad, iced tea-carrying, youth through the neighborhood because he looked “suspicious,” it became clear that America’s Millennial generation had not, in fact, disentangled itself from the nation’s sordid, bloody, and lamentable history of racial atrocity.

This is clearly by design. Remember: we adopted a collectivist etymology, as we were supplying the Axis Powers, with rubber, shortly before becoming involved against the late Super Power. Seven decades later, operant conditioning is/has been the praxis. 

Texas directs about 0.40 of our nation's education system; have you forgotten the controversy over education reform in 2009. Texas won that debate -- Common Core is all around.
