Sunday Reads: Coke and a Child

Good morning, I guess the memes make themselves up nowadays.

Cartoons from Cagle.com

All this mask freedom…is a bit premature…

The fat lady hasn’t even started to warm up, she won’t be singing anytime soon.

I thought Benji was out? Or would be out soon?

Meanwhile in Mississippi:

There is a new case of police brutality…this one is torture.

Remember the name Jamal Sutherland…because he will become the next George Floyd.

I tried to watch the video, but I could not. My disgust is overwhelming and I am seriously thinking about going to Charleston to March in the protest.

I’m ending this with a few nice things:

Wednesday Reads: Mr. Sandman

Happy St. Patrick’s Day…

I believe they have since released the information that it is 6 Asian women, 1 white woman and 1 man.

In other news…

Good morning…

Just a few cartoons…

So today is Super Bowl Sunday…and I wanted to remember the best halftime performance ever…

And just a few links:

Hollywood legends…we have lost four over the last few weeks.

Christopher Plummer

Hal Holbrook

Cicely Tyson

Cloris Leachman

Keep well, and stay safe.

And just a little shoutout to my hometown team…go Bucs!


Sunday Reads: Whitelash

This attempted coup is disgusting…here are a few thoughts on the violence this past week.

I think it all stems from the fact that a black man was elected President some years ago….tRump supporters have something in common. They are white supremacist, bigoted assholes.

Just waiting for…

Sunday #JusticeForGeorge

This is too much déjà vu…how many times have we seen the phrase “justice for…” used to represent the murder of a black man or woman or child?

The entire country has erupted in protests over the murder of George Floyd, another unarmed black man who was killed by the police in Minneapolis, MN. Even as hundreds of thousands of people are dying and suffering because of the Covid-19 pandemic, this has not stopped the police from murdering black people in the street. Despite the looming fear of contracting the virus, protesters gathered in the streets all around the city to demand justice for George Floyd and the countless others who have been murdered by police and to declare that black lives matter. These photos are from the rally that took place in Brooklyn, New York. Note: Activist NYC has always been a photo project documenting peaceful protesters and depicting people in a positive light. I started this project because I hate how the media always portrays protesters with violence to garner clicks and headlines. All these photos from today were captured with permission from the people. . . @peoplespowerassemblynyc @equality4flatbush #georgefloyd #justiceforgeorgefloyd #blacklivesmatter #whitesupremacy #fightwhitesupremacy #whitesupremacyisterrorism #BLM #stopwhitesupremacy #stopwhiteterrorism #fuckthepolice #FTP #policebrutality #stoppolicebrutality #stopkillingblackpeople #nojusticenopeace #silenceisviolence #jailkillercops #wewillnotbesilent #documentaryphotography #photojournalism #activistny #blacklivesmatter✊🏾 #policeaccountability #policeaccountabilitynow #endpolicebrutality #stoppoliceterror #stoppoliceviolence #icantbreathe #noracistpolice #justiceforfloyd
