While campaigning in Iowa, says: “We can't say to black women “oh thank you, you are the ones empowering our victories,” and then turn around and start our nominating contests in two states that have barely any black people in them."

And finally: we have another example of Trumpian infallibility. If the night had gone better for Republicans, it would have been because of Trump. It went poorly, so now it’s that Trump singlehandedly rescued the GOP from disasters in deep red states. Because Trump is infallible.

Trump is repealing President Obama’s LGBT protections, Karen Pence is teaching at a school that bans LGBT students, and a white county commissioner in Tennessee is ranting about a “queer running for president,” but nobody ever says white people have a problem with homophobia.

“Bias is bad!” Except for the bias that assumes that “the widest angle lens must be the right one/people closet to a situation with the most at stake probably know less about what they need and that’s why we don’t have to listen to or take care of them,” my dude(s).

What happened last inning is why we have to be leery of any Supreme Court nominees who say they “are just going to call balls and strikes.” It’s never that easy, and wrong decisions on the seemingly arcane have real consequences.

When someone is sent into our criminal justice system, it's not a single person. When a person is arrested, we have to think about how that pulls their entire family into the system—and how that family is treated.

People rushing to climb Uluru is the epitome asshole move. The brazen disregard for what it signals is mindboggling.

Good day to be reminded there is a museum to make us understand the terror and legacy of lynching “More than 4400 African American men, women, and children were hanged, burned alive, shot, drowned, and beaten to death by white mobs between 1877 and 1950.”
