Let's discuss the Waffle House shooting, process the idea of whether Trump is to be credited for possible peace in the Korean peninsula, plus I was at the white supremacist rally in Newnan over the weekend and I share my thoughts on the media's coverage of Nazis. Finally Kanye West...oh Kanye.

A friend of mine used to work at the local sports talk-radio station. He did the morning show. He occasionally worked with a person, the guy who did the night show, who in both his on-air persona and personal life was something of a noted asshole. There were stories of the audible sighs which followed his departure from any room. [ 1,130 more word ]

"Anoa Changa is a leader, change agent, and activist, who has shown herself time and again to be an independent thinker.

Anoa has been a critical and valued team member and a leading voice at Progressive Army, and volunteers countless hours to the cause of lifting marginalized communities. She does all of this while maintaining a full-time job and being a full-time parent. Anoa was raised in the movement and is not new to how the system works to silence Black voices. Her clearest and earliest memory of being an active part of a protest is at the age of 11.

What NPR affiliate WABE published, smearing Anoa’s character and reputation, portraying her as some hapless dupe to a Russian outlet while disguising their interest as being nothing more than a spotlight on a local activist, is uncons...

A lot of White people need to go ahead and admit that they’re okay with a police state, as long as it’s oppressing people who are not like them. If you can whip up paragraphs upon paragraphs to explain why the police were right to arrest two Black men for waiting for a friend at Starbucks without ordering anything first; if you can wax eloquent about how it is within an establishment’s right to deem patrons who do not purchase an item while waiting for another party to be trespassers, and have the police called on them because it is a bad business model to do otherwise; if you can ignore all the White people who readily admit that they frequently sit at a table or a booth in Starbucks or another similar establishment while waiting for clients, friends, or the weather and order not...

This article, by Yoav Litvin, was originally published on Truthout.org. In 2018, the term "identity politics" is often associated with the promotion of tokenized personalities rather than on the representation and advancement of oppressed communities within society.

UPDATE April 17, 2018, 4:00 P.M. EST: Starbucks is going to shut down all locations for implicit bias training on the afternoon of May 29th. It has also been reported that the employee who called the police and had the two black men wrongfully arrested no longer works at Starbucks.

The original story follows below:

On April 12, 2018, two black men who were waiting to meet up with a friend were arrested at the Rittenhouse Square Starbucks in Philadelphia. Reportedly, they were shouted at by the manager to make a purchase or leave and when they refused, the police were called. The Philadelphia Police Chief said the officers did nothing wrong. And, as far as police involvement with black people goes, they indeed simply did their job and arrested two men for sitting in a restaurant.
