Black people were brought here unwillingly, forced under the cracks of whips to build a country that white people could move around effortlessly in the freedom and comfort that those slaves’ work provided. All the while, white America ignored the residual effects that atrocities like slavery and Jim Crow brought upon generation after generation of the very people who were forced to enable that freedom. The descendents of these people are now told to “get over it” in a fraction of the 400 years that they spent being robbed of life, liberty, and any chance to pursue happiness.

And what thanks do black Americans get? The privilege to drive on roads named after Confederate soldiers and generals. The honor to sing a national anthem that amplifies white supremacy while glorifying the murdering of slaves, written by a racist slave owner. The privilege to salute a flag stained with the blood of my ancestors, with hatred and abhorrence for my very existence woven deeply into its fabric. Stitch by stitch by stitch. And if I choose to opt out of acknowledging these symbols that have been whitewashed of their true meaning and repainted with a fresh coat of postbellum patriotism? To shun these gross reminders of oppression, to sit, to kneel, to raise my fist in protest? I’m the ungrateful nigger who doesn’t love his country and should leave. A country that was never mine to begin with.
After the deaths of Keith Lamont Scott and Terence Crutcher, we’re all forced to grapple with an epidemic. Now do something about it.

lol at dropping Jackson and Berman... those guys might retire doing that job! +Charles Gilmore There is something else going on. I kinda get a hunch that Chris Carter might rub people wrong. Who knows.

Seems the money laundering scheme is only working for Hillary Clinton and not down ticket candidates. Less than 1% has stayed with the state parties.
The Democratic front-runner says she's raising big checks to help state committees, but they've gotten to keep only 1 percent of the $60 million raised.

Good read.
Hillary Clinton attacked Bernie Sanders Medicare for All plan claiming that expanding the Affordable Care Act is the way to go forward. She is wrong.

Very good read. Before I moved to life insurance I used to work for Aflac. The incredible lack of understanding of how healthcare works caused me to switch in under 7 months.

In States like Pennsylvania that do not have state sponsored Short term Disability you can buy your own private insurance. A private employer that allows their employees access to these plans would save on payroll taxes for every employee that enrolls and pays their premium pre-tax the company would also pay less in payroll taxes as they match 1-1 the employees dollars.

You could explain till you turned blue the cost savings and the stats showing employees with disibality return to work faster than those without. Employers paid zero % of the premium unlike health insurance where they pay 80% and the employee 20%.

There's nothing to loose yet employer after employer would tell me, disability allows employees to get hurt and miss more time, or that it's just another form of welfare. Smh...

Everyone is upset at the non-call on Waiters for the push off during the inbound. Prior to the throw in there should've have been a delay of game called on Manu. He stepped on the line and broke the plane.

Like Jay said in What More Can I Say, "A CEO's mind, that marketing plan was me."
Beyonce and Jay Z are believed to have made up to £150 million from cheating rumours. According to reports, the couple made the joint decision to play up rumours about their marriage to sell more copies of Beyonce’s album Lemonade. Jay Z and Beyonce are already two of the industry’s biggest players
