Speaking of black people who say strikingly ignorant things .. check out Candace Owens here.

RMU takes Candace Owens to school for being wildly uniformed and saying strikingly ignorant things (10 April 2019)

The all-black, well-educated panel here at Roland Martin Unfiltered (RMU) addresses Candace's comments.

Her comments make me feel sad for the black man. As if they dont already have enough obstacles to overcome .. without one of their own turning against them.

This is yet another reason why justice in America continues to come out perverted for the weak and the poor and the helpless .. despite some 50 or 60 women coming forward.

Maria Farmer at Jeffrey Epstein's estate in Ohio in 1996

Justice in America is supposed to be blind .. but it's not. Sadly, justice in America is for sale .. to the highest bidder.

» Why Would Alan Dershowitz Ever Contemplate the Notion that Statutory Rape is an Outdated Concept?

Especially after Dershowitz publicly argued that statutory rape is an "outdated concept" (LA Times, 7 May 1997).

Alan Dershowitz argues that statutory rape is an outdated concept (LA Times, 7 May 1997)

Now there's an eyebrow-raising title if ever I saw one. Why would he ever do something like that?

Have you ever heard someone argue that statutory rape was an outdated concept? I certainly havent.

I wonder if Shaun has any idea why Alan might argue such a thing.

Shaun Attwood reads statement of Virginia Roberts Giuffre saying that she had sexual intercourse with Dershowitz (as a minor) at least six times (7 Sept 2019)

When did it become outdated, Alan? What year pray tell?

Whatever precipitated such an idea? Does David Boies share your startling opinion?

It is off-topic here, but speaking of Marianne Williamson ..

Presidential candidate Marianne Williamson says we need a moral awakening (31 Jam 2019)

.. the ladies of The View treated Alan Dershowitz ...

Dershowitz and Epstein at Harvard in 2004.

.. who happens to be a personal friend of, and enthusiastic advocate for, convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein ..

Shaun Attwood reads aloud the statement of Virginia Roberts Giuffre saying that Dershowitz hung out with Epstein frequently (7 Sept 2019)

.. better than they treated Marianne Williamson.

Much better.

» The United States Does Not Torture

Speaking of stepping away from groups of people who are known to embrace racist sentiments .. check out this Vice News interview with Joe Walsh (57).

Former Tea Party congressman Joe Walsh tells Vice News that the Republican party is not a racist bigoted cruel party (30 Aug 2019).

This is one of the most fascinating political interviews I have ever seen .. for a number of reasons.

Which is why I am mentioning it here .. in this theme where I have already referenced Joe Walsh and some of the things he has said.

He attended the University of Chicago .. so he is no dummy. He is no hick.

» The 400-Year Anniversary of Slavery in America

I bet that Nikole Hannah-Jones knows what I am talking about.

Nikole Hannah-Jones leads the 1619 Project (18 August 2019)

She leads The 1619 Project (published 14 August 2019), which marks the 400-year anniversary of slavery in America.

The 1619 Project by Nikole Hannah-Jones (14 August 2019)

I wonder what Kanye thinks of Nikole's project.

» Eddie Glaude Speaks Bluntly on Racism in America

One of the things that made me feel happy .. was this statement made by Eddie Glaude. He is a professor of African American Studies at Princeton.

The mere fact that a a black man is speaking aloud these words on television .. this a big deal.

Eddie Glaude says America likes to tell itself myths and fables about our inherent goodness in order to hide our dark secrets so we can maintain a willful ignorance that protects our innocence. (7 Aug 2019)

You almost can't believe what your ears are hearing. In the grand scheme of things, this is a big deal.

» Feeling Habakkuk and his Complaint

There is much ugliness there. So much of it that I could feel Habakkuk when he wrote to God. (Rad paraphrase.)

"Why are you making see all this nasty shit? .. where nasty fuckheads trick-fuck good people and then get away with it.

"This shit has been going on for so long now, and it shows no signs of abating any time soon."

"Justice is a joke .. a bad joke. How are you tolerating this?"

It is just a sad state of affairs that our government has become.

Magdalena Gomez Gregorio (11) crying after parents deported (t=6:00, 8 Aug 2019)

This is heartbreaking. Such a little girl.

» What Does It Feel Like to be a Natural Woman?

You are amazing. No wonder your foot is so sore.

Ariana sings Natural Woman with the Roots (16 Aug 2018)

Look at your upper lip here. This is why I captured this image of you and cropped it down so close .. to focus on your upper lip.

» I Bet that You are a Good Kisser

You have nice lips, by the way. I bet that you are a good kisser.

Good kissers in The River by Delta Goodrem

I am pretty sure of it. I feel confident about my intuition. But there is really only one way to know for certain.

» I Could Feel the Boss Working that Racist Angle

I remember thinking, "Ooh, I can feel him working that racist angle. This can't be a good thing for racists."

Ronald Reagan recorded talking to Nixon using a racial slur to refer to Africans as 'monkeys' (National Archives, Oct 1971, posted 31 July 2019)

I wonder what Reagan thinks of that. I can almost hear the weeping and gnashing of teeth now.
