Mayor Buttigieg’s response to VP Pence: “I’m not interested in feuding with the vice president ... He could come out today and say he’s changed his mind that it shouldn’t be legal to discriminate against anyone in this country for who they are.”

It's hard to believe in 2019, more than 50 years after the death of Martin Luther King jr., that we have a vice president who still thinks that there are some American citizens who do not deserve civil rights.

The current Administration cannot obliterate the last fifty or sixty years in the United States no matter how hard they try.

They would like to go backwards to a time that never was, but the American people have already gone forward.

FYI: the California National Guard is the only group to say they will not be abiding by Trump’s ban.

The Guard answers to state Governors — so they can look past federal policies like this.

But CA is the only to voice this so far.

Bigotry and Prejudice being practiced by the United States government is unconstitutional.

Racism, bigotry and prejudice is simply Un-American.

 trump's hateful attitude against Some Americans simply won't be tolerated by Most Americans.

The school district has launched an internal investigation and placed the teacher on indefinite leave.

"MaHailey Stephens, a black seventh grader in Wisconsin, asked her mom about something strange that had happened in school that day.

“I went to my mom, I’m like, ‘Mom, what are slave games?'” MaHailey told WITI-TV.

 

MaHailey is one of many students at Shorewood Intermediate School who say their middle school gym teacher separated students based on race and asked them to research their “culture,”.....

The teacher's name is Jan Zehren and she's been placed on indefinite leave.

 Reportedly black students had previously complained to their parents about being segregated by race for class participation and being told to join the "colored clubs" by Zehren.

Kate Smith, who shot to fame during World War II, had a repertoire that included songs with racist lyrics and caricatures.

https://www.huffpost.com/entry/kate-smith-god-bless-america-yankees-flyers_n_5cb9dbcee4b068d795cbda5a?ncid=tweetlnkushpmg00000067

Kate was a good singer and she gave the public what they wanted. Just like Al Jolson, she was popular not just because she had a good voice but also because she gave the public what they wanted.

People who are still alive today enjoyed those racist ditties. And  millions of other Americans  had grandparents  and parents  who passed down their enjoyment of this racist material to the next Generation.

And that sort of thing was very popular in the first half of the 20th century in the United States.

It's best to remember that this sort of thing doesn't just fade away into the Mist. It goes into the very structure and Foundation of families throughout Generations.

If you're going to criticize Kate Smith or Al Jolson for this kind of material then millions of Americans have to look inside of themselves-- harking back to  previous  generations and wonder where all that hatred went to.

If any singers became millionaires singing this kind of material, so who's really to blame for it?

Wow! Fox News invites Jewish guest who attends Pittsburgh Tree of Life Synagogue & asks him why there’s a spike in anti-Semitism?

He responds by condemning Trump’s anti-Semitism.

Fox immediately cuts to commercial😐

This is what State TV looks like

<_<

Hitler was the ultimate white supremacist and he started with anti-Semitism.

If you believe that there are some good neo-nazis, then you have to also believe that there's something positive about anti-Semitism.

Trump hails "remarkable achievements of Mexican Americans" in Cinco de Mayo message http://hill.cm/3ChhJuW 

D5znlbVXsAENU6f.jpg

Does this mean that trump's numerous comments where he often spoke about Mexicans being rapists, murderers, ruthless and violent gang members, drug pushers, and just bad Hombres in general were all lies?

The Mexican as rapist comments date back to the very beginning of his presidential campaign in 2016.

One of the MOs of bigots, especially white supremacists, is characterizing-- stereotyping- minority groups with negative traits.

You can't have it both ways.

Pennsylvania State Police caught a white woman involved in an alleged heroin sale on video, but instead arrested Jada Noone, a Black woman. Before the mistake was caught, Noone's bail set at $75K and she faced a felony drug charge. Noone is now suing.

From Noone's lawsuit: "The video clearly shows another individual is the person, not Ms. Noone, involved in the alleged crime. That person is not even of the same ethnicity of Ms. Noone. Ms. Noone is African-American."

The state's response to Noone's lawsuit includes a demand that she prove that she is actually Black.

Children at school have been giving Nazi salutes in the hallways and at recess for weeks, after a teacher assigned a student to give the Nazi salute in a Hitler costume for an assignment.

 

Keith Jacks Gamble @KeithJGamble

 

Please comment with support for my 11-year-old daughter.

She was removed from class and sent to the principal’s office for the rest of the day last Thursday

for shouting, “Stop it, put your hands down now,” to a group of students giving the Nazi salute.

Tomorrow is the 65th anniversary of the Brown v. Board of Education decision, a 9-0 Supreme Court ruling outlawing segregation. Republicans dishonor the anniversary today by approving Wendy Vitter to the federal court, even after she refused to say if Brown was correctly decided.
