(from the archives July 2014) Q: Is it offensive to refer to black people as "black" and/or "African American"? White people seem like they're walking on eggshells, and they say "African American" a lot (when people might be neither African nor American). A: I'm actually surprised that nobody remembers how the change originally occurred. In the late 80s when professors like Skip Gates was making a big splash at Harvard and Toni Morrison was the toast of the planet, a monumental book was published called the Norton Anthology of African-American Literature. Anyone who was paying attention would know and recognize... Continue reading

LIKE SEVERAL of my friends, I wonder where to find engaging conversations if I don’t use Facebook. I’m looking at six of the newsfeeds that capture my attention. Sometime in 2000, I started reading Gavin’s Blog as his musing percolated through Radio Userland alongside Karlin Lillington’s. A few days ago, Gavin wondered if it is time for him to abandon Facebook, the place where all your connections (and the connections of your connections) are easily hovered up and sold along to companies specializing in advancing special messages. So I clicked into Gavinsblog to see if he reignited conversation there. His... Continue reading

So there are 90 odd million gun owners in the US with something on the order of 300 million firearms in their possession. It occurred to me that with all the symbols and empty gestures flying around, maybe one ought to be considered. What if, in protest against gun control, gun owners were to go to their local police departments or city hall and donate 5 bullets. Just go and volunteer and say, you want to be on record as making America five bullets safer.� It would then be on the municipal staff to safely dispose of that ammo. They... Continue reading

By Catherine A. Fitzpatrick� A Russian online news site, Gazeta, which used to be more independent and now is more and more pro-Kremlin, claimed falsely today that "American journalists defended their colleagues after an attack from the State Department." Welllll, come now. That's not really what happened, as anyone can tell by reading the transcript AND watching the video. There was some murmurring in the pack of journalists, and just two spoke up challenging the State Department's actually accurate characterizations. via 3dblogger.typepad.com Continue reading

This is a selection of some of the more interesting tweets about Simon Bridges becoming the first Maori leader of a major party in New Zealand. The most recent tweets are first. Christian�@CrikaRika� I'm no fan at all of National or Bridges, but you don't get to determine how Māori he is. That's little different to going back to the ignorance of "people "only" being quarter or half Māori, so not really "properly" Māori". via liberation.typepad.com Continue reading

It turns out, if a newly released Baylor University study is accurate, that your view of God often affects the political positions you support in a variety of ways. “Republicans with a deeply engaged God," said one of the study leaders, "are consistently liberal on issues of social justice. And Democrats with a highly judgmental God are consistently conservative on issues of retributive justice.” In other words, one's view of God can turn someone affiliated with a traditionally conservative party more liberal and someone affiliated with a traditionally liberal party more conservative. via billtammeus.typepad.com Continue reading

Copied from ammo.com with links to their site and promotional items. The Plain Truth has no affliction with this company, but endorses REAL HISTORY, as done in this article. https://ammo.com With the violent crime rate�increasing disproportionately in urban communities, it's no surprise that�a recent�phone survey of black voters�found that 80 percent felt gun violence was an “extremely serious” problem. But it seems this surge in violence actually has many in the black community�changing�their views on gun ownership.�In 1993, 74 percent of African-Americans favored gun control. By 2015, that number dropped to 60. However, when asked if they favor gun ownership,... Continue reading

Following on from the feminization of Colonel Saunders, did you see that the "Walking Man" for Johnnie Walker scotch is being replaced by "Jane Walker." Anomaly is the agency of record. Wonder if anyone there considered what the new image signifies? Jane is wearing tight britches, long leather boots and carries a whip. Bit "Kinky" don't ya think? Do not fuck with Jane. via adscam.typepad.com Continue reading
