Thursday Bag o’ Rage

I feel like we’re slipping back to the 1960s; I meant it when I said I can see Donna and I packing clothing and food for freedom riders again, just as we did in 1964. […]

Thursday Bag o’ Statuary

Ugh, relatives in the heartland. Again. I unfriend out & out racists when they reveal themselves on Facebook, unless they’re kin (I did unfriend a nephew, but it was over animal cruelty).

What Fire?

Reference yesterday’s post, a conservative friend on Facebook asks where all this racism is … he’s never seen any.

Sorry, couldn’t resist responding to the comment. You know, though, you hear this on the right, and you hear it a lot. What racism? We’re not racists! Don’t you dare call us racists! We love […]
