G-Plus didn't really fit into my three-month sabbatical from social media, since I wasn't using it all that much at the time. Now that I've returned, I'd like to see what this thing can really do.

I paint “ally” on my profile, not as a badge of accomplishment, but as a reminder to do the work.

"… the idea that women are not as good is so deeply embedded in the mind of so many people in positions of power, that it is not even recognized."

Listen.
1967 - Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. speaks to an audience in Stanford University's Memorial Auditorium.  It is the speech where he speaks of riots being the voice of the unheard.   He is turning towards addressing poverty in America (the two Americas) and the Vietnam War.  His demeanor speaks.  He speaks of the "triple ghetto."  It is a powerful speech.  There is a changing wind.  

"Dr King contends that there are "two Americas": one "beautiful" and the "other America," which is an "arena of blasted hopes and dreams." He goes on to explain that "we are seeking to make America one nation" and discusses: African American civil rights; segregation; slavery; civil rights bills; the need for "genuine equality"; housing; education; employment; his experiences in Chicago; social and racial inequality; the persistence of "white backlash" against the constitutional rights of minorities; non-violence; "massive action programs"; social stagnation; the Vietnam War; sharing of political power and legislating for social justice. He concludes by stating that: "I still have faith in the future. I still believe these problems can be solved ... I refuse to despair ... our destiny is tied up in the destiny of America."
