"Still, Bernie Sanders, and Sanders supporters and surrogates, should use the Politico story to draw a line, making clear that they will withdraw their support of Clinton if Clinton accepts Kissinger’s endorsement. If Sanders stands for anything, it is the promise of decency and civil equality, qualities that he has worked hard to bestow on Clinton since the Democratic National Convention. By accepting Kissinger’s endorsement, Clinton wouldn’t just be mocking that gift. She’d be sending the clearest signal yet to grassroots peace and social-justice Democrats that her presidency wouldn’t be a “popular front” against Trumpian fascism. It would be bloody business as usual."

Oh, really now! Where was the media when #BernieSanders  turned his attention to his foreign policy ideas? They mocked him! Now they want him to influence Clinton?

That train has long left thestation.

Neil Irwin writes about #Fed Chair Yellen not yet having found a framework. Well, rates still shouldn't be raised because the official #unemployment  rate of 5% isn't the real unemployment rate, which is closer to 12%. There are, of course, other factors at play.

US Arab Radio celebrates its 11th Year as one of the only daily radio program addressing American Arab and Muslim issues. The need to expand and support our American Arab and Muslim media is critical to our community’s effectiveness in this country. Only a few media — the Arab American News and US Arab Radio, both in Detroit — have risen to the level of true professionalism, although many continue to struggle. Here’s a look at one of them

#Tyrant #Racism The FX Series Tyrant which features many Arab actors and actresses is the most racist and viciously anti-Arab series on Television. The series, which is in its second season, is the work of an anti-Arab hater and Israeli producer Howard Gordon and writer Gideon Raff. The show was rumored to have been cancelled after last season’s miserable ratings and criticism of its racist stereotypes of Arabs and Muslims, but it was brought back maybe just as a gesture by Gordon and Raff to tell Arabs and Muslims to go f— themselves. http://thearabdailynews.com/2016/08/11/tyrant-racist-program-tv/

“For Black girls who ain’t carefree.

Who got a chip on they shoulder. Who aren’t friendly.

Who still sound like the block they from. Whose power is overwhelming.

Who are called intimidating before they even have spoken. Who say ‘fuck these n*gg*s’ and mean it every time.

Who need validation. Whose sadness is inconvenient.

Whose depression goes unrecognized. Whose anxiety is mistaken for dramatic behavior.

Who give until they run out cause they grandma did. Who don’t trust nobody because they mam didn’t.

Who do it themselves every time.

I see y’all.

We valid.”

Krugman puts cart before horse and counts eggs before they're hatched. What Hillary will be able to do and whether she can do any more than President Obama has been able to do, will rest largely on voter participation. Rely on anti-Trump Republicans and we will get more divided government and obstruction.

"Dear Obatalá,

May I never be the type of person who barges into someone’s home unwelcomed, in full riot-gear, prepared for war, claiming a minuscule reason for doing so: that someone didn’t pay their parking tickets.

May I never be so detached from my own heart and in such a state of cowardice that I can fire a gun at a mother holding a child in her arms, even if, like a true child of Ogun, she could hold that child and stand her ground while firing off a shotgun in a way that would make Black Mary slap her knee and shout 'Hallelujah!'

Please let my fear of harming a child always outweigh my bloodlust."

“Life is tragic simply because the earth turns and the sun inexorably rises and sets, and one day, for each of us, the sun will go down for the last, last time. Perhaps the whole root of our trouble, the human trouble, is that we will sacrifice all the beauty of our lives, will imprison ourselves in totems, taboos, crosses, blood sacrifices, steeples, mosques, races, armies, flags, nations, in order to deny the fact of death, the only fact we have. It seems to me that one ought to rejoice in the fact of death--ought to decide, indeed, to earn one's death by confronting with passion the conundrum of life. One is responsible for life: It is the small beacon in that terrifying darkness from which we come and to which we shall return.”

“Life is tragic simply because the earth turns and the sun inexorably rises and sets, and one day, for each of us, the sun will go down for the last, last time. Perhaps the whole root of our trouble, the human trouble, is that we will sacrifice all the beauty of our lives, will imprison ourselves in totems, taboos, crosses, blood sacrifices, steeples, mosques, races, armies, flags, nations, in order to deny the fact of death, the only fact we have. It seems to me that one ought to rejoice in the fact of death--ought to decide, indeed, to earn one's death by confronting with passion the conundrum of life. One is responsible for life: It is the small beacon in that terrifying darkness from which we come and to which we shall return.”

― James Baldwin, The Fire Next Time

Happy birthday, Baba Baldwin!

I have a serious question:

How many more videos you'll think it take before people, including President Barack Obama, will stop saying "not all cops!"?

Do you think violently slamming an unarmed and compliant teacher to the ground TWICE, and telling her that her black skin is the reason will finally wake those folks up, or nah?

I'm betting nah.

I'm betting some folks will argue that "black women aren't even really victims of police violence."

I've seen that argument come from both people who claim that they have cops' back and those who claim that they have black women's backs.

All I know for sure is that they are capturing our genocide on video in slow motion and I wonder if they are saving it as keepsakes for their children like they used to do with lynching postcards.

"Patrol car video publicly released Thursday shows a white Austin, Texas, police officer violently throwing a black woman to the ground during a traffic stop, followed by another white officer telling her black people have 'violent tendencies' and whites are justifiably afraid."

[Photo description: Screen shot. Outdoors. Daytime. A woman, Breaion King, is seen sitting in the back of a police patrol car, hands cuffed behind her back. She is seen from her profile. She is leaned forward, talking to the unseen officer in the front seat. A plexiglass partition separating them. The captioned dialogue is King asking "Why?" and the cop responding "Violet tendencies."]

“If we-and now I mean the relatively conscious whites and the relatively conscious blacks, who must, like lovers, insist on, or create, the consciousness of the others---do not falter in our duty now, we may be able, handful that we are, to end the racial nightmare, and achieve our country, and change the history of the world.

If we do not now dare everything, the fulfillment of that prophecy, re-created from the Bible in song by a slave, is upon us:

God gave Noah the rainbow sign.

No more water, fire next time."
