Love and solidarity, fearlessness and tenacity.

Stand in Solidarity with Charlottesville – Find an Event This weekend, hate groups and domestic terrorists of all stripes went to Charlottesville, VA to push their hateful message of white supremacy, fascism, anti-Semitism, and bigotry. When they got there they waged violence on unarmed anti-racists, killing one and injuring many others. We mourn for the life that was lost, and we will honor all those under attack by congregating against hate in our own communities. Tonight and tomorrow, Indivisible groups, along with our friends at Women’s March, Democracy for America, Working Families Party, Resist Here, […]

11 Essential Movies About The Lives of Immigrants and Refugees

Through cinema, we can find empathy and understanding. “Relating a person to the whole world;” Andrei Tarkovsky wrote, “that is the meaning of cinema.” In light of the political tumult and injustice of the past week, it’s easy to feel that movies are a frivolity — a way of escaping into fantasy and neglecting the problems of the real world. But as Tarkovsky suggests, the meaning of cinema exceeds mere escapism. Unlike the language of politics, cinema has the power to cut through the defenses of ideology and bring us into empathic communion with the characters onscreen. […]

Time For A Protest–NO NAZIS IN MY BACK YARD!!

“Alt-right” a.k.a ‘ALL-Wrong’ Neo Nazi Richard Spencer recently opened an office of his white supremacist think tank the National Policy Institute in Alexandria, VA. We will rally together to show these nazis that they are NOT welcome in our community, that their perverted, violent racist ideology has no place in our society and that they should prepare to meet coordinated, powerful resistance should they try to operate in Washington, DC. Join us as we will rally in front of their new office building. Details of the rally still TBD and will be posted as updated. […]

Welcome to the Reading Corner

I really am having  difficulties just posting about the usual lesbian stuff (While President Chimp Lip Cheeto is on loose)’ Difficulties like WTF is up with Kristen Stewart? First she’s fcuking That Vampire DUDE: Then that Director DUDE, while she was still with that Vampire Dude. So even though Kristen Stewart is now proudly singing the praises of being Gay or in some cases Bisexual. What K-Stew has to say about concerning regarding her sexuality is open for debate: “If you feel like you really want to define yourself, and you have the ability to […]

So What Do We Do Now? The Puppet is in Power, The Puppet’s wife is miserable and the puppet’s strings are being jerked by Rasputin Incarnate and since only some of us are kinda stupid, but the rest of us know that immediate and nonstop action and unrelenting resistance achieved through: While many of us had hoped to be participating in a greater vision for America, we have, instead been confronted with the painful reality that we still have a long road ahead…Let’s refresh our knowledge as to why immedi9ate action on your part is […]

Protesters rally worldwide in solidarity with Washington march

Donald Trump hammered home in his inaugural address outside the Capitol building Friday the promise he had sewn onto so many red ballcaps: that he would Make America Great Again. In the same spot the following day, Women’s March on Washington protesters with far less nostalgia for America’s past – women who lived through the Civil Rights movement, who came of age in an era when abortion was criminalized, who have vivid memories of a time when gay men and women were regularly victimized – have gathered to say, We are not going back. I’m […]

Understanding Fear of the 'Other' In White America

Sometimes it’s better to look elsewhere in order to get a fresh perspective on America’s white citizenry.  Of course not all white people should be generalize, [That’s a given].  But for those whites who voted for Trump, this scenario could conceivably play in their minds, even though they probably never saw this documentary. It’s difficult for me to fathom the deplorable conditions that these individuals are facing.  Nonetheless I see why Donald Trump was so successful in his fear mongering. Whites [And I KNOW Not all whites feel like this way!] have had 8 years […]

Like It Or Not B!tches: Obama Will Go Down as One of the Greatest Presidents of All Time |

From GQ magazine Something is dawning on us—it’s almost too soon for us to admit, but it’s there, a half-considered thought only now blooming in our brains. Maybe we dismiss it with one of those quick cognitive fly swats. Nah, too early to say or I hate that guy. But the truth is coming, and it sounds like this: Barack Obama will be inducted into the league of Great Presidents. Wait. One of the Greatest? you ask, your thumb emoticon poised to turn up or down on me. The guy haters love to hate with […]

Steve Bannon’s disturbing views on ‘genetic superiority’ are shared by Donald Trump

Rare photo of Me: ‘TEK Girl’ posted solely to illustrate the fact that despite the lightness of my complexion, I identify as a woman of color. The rhetoric in the accompanying article to be extremely disturbing and outdated.  It is also why marginalized groups need to focus on what’s is important and NOT get sidetracked by such things like a white woman wearing an Afro wig on the cover of Black Hair magazine.  Yes the photo culturally appropriated and was distasteful, but that doesn’t compare to what may be in store for all of us.

Breaking news on Trump University: SETTLES LAWSUITS FOR 25 MILLION DOLLARS!

Attorney General Eric Schneiderman:  ‘Today’s $25 million settlement agreement is a stunning reversal by Donald Trump and a major victory for the over 6,000 victims of his fraudulent university’ oF COURSE BY SETTLING the lawsuits, PRESIDENT ELECT DONALD J.

Something I Heard….

For several years I haven’t heard the  word: “Minority” bandied about as much as I have during this election deason. As a woman of colour, I became comfortable in not referring to myself or to any other person of color as a minority Oddly, through over the past several onth the word: :Minority” had been more visible and audible in the news. Whereas reporters would once refer the \African American and Hispanic” community, now I hear ‘Minority’ used in its stead. I feel as emotionally drained, as the feeling I have after watching  a film […]

How Clinton lost – CNNPolitics.com

CNN)Hillary Clinton just couldn’t hold onto the Obama coalition. And that proved to be a large part of her undoing.African-American, Latino and younger voters failed to show up at the polls in sufficient numbers Tuesday to propel Clinton into the White House.Clinton conceded the race after 2 a.m. ET. Before polls closed her campaign had been confident of victory. In the end, however, she lost even some states thought to be safely in her column, like Wisconsin. She trailed in others, like Pennsylvania and Michigan.While she won the key demographic groups her campaign targeted, she […]

Donald Trump got to wave a rainbow flag at a campaign rally, and here’s why that’s messed up

   OH Is This PHOTO A BUCKET Of Bullsh!t Or What?! This presidential election has been so, so strange. And things just got weirder. Republican candidate Donald Trump waved a rainbow flag at rally, which is weird, because Trump isn’t supportive of the LGBT community. Trump held the “LGBT for Trump” sign, and got a lot of people chatting about how pro-LGBT he is… but holding a pride flag doesn’t make someone an ally. It just means they can hold a flag for five seconds. The internet isn’t thrilled because Trump’s policies don’t at all match […]

DON’T BELIEVE THE HYPE-HERE’S THE TRUTH ABOUT THE NEW EMAILS

What the FBI Director’s letter about the Clinton emails really says It’s a good idea to read the letter before you report on it. FBI Director James Comey CREDIT: AP Photo/Pablo Martinez Monsivais Oy. As of this writing, all three cable news networks are in a frenzy. FBI Director James Comey just sent a letter to Republican congressional committee chairs announcing that he’s taking a new look into Hillary Clinton’s emails. Another investigation! And right before the election! She could be indicted! Well, probably not. Indeed, almost definitely not. Here’s what the letter actually says: […]

Welcome Aboard The CRAZEE! Train

Trump suggests GOP officials in Texas are rigging voting machines against him. Voters stand in line at an early polling site, Monday, Oct. 24, 2016, in San Antonio. CREDIT: AP Photo/Eric Gay   Surprise, surprise: Trump’s conspiracy theory is unfounded.  Since early voting began in Texas on Monday, there have been scattered reports of “vote flipping,” or people trying to vote for one candidate only to see an electronic voting machine preliminarily register their vote for another. Those reports, along with the long lines some voters have had to endure, were cited by Donald Trump […]

How Hillary WON ALL Of The Debates!

  I asked a young woman who works for management in my apartment building what she though of the final debate.  She wanted to sound knowledgeable and told me that she was disappointed with it. I asked her why and she was unable to articulate a cogent response. Why?  Could it have been because she is only 23 years old? I don’t know and don’t particularly care what her reason was, although I suspect that she is a Donald Trump supporter, which is ironic because she supports him despite what he is documented saying about […]

The new birtherism: Trump says Hillary Clinton is ineligible to run for president

“She should not be allowed to run.” said Trump and  if that is the case, then neither should he be allowed to run. At the final presidential debate on Wednesday night, the moment that stood out the most was when Republican nominee Donald Trump refused to say he would accept the results of the election, no matter the outcome, and ensure a peaceful transition of power. It was an attack on one of the bedrock foundations of American democracy. But embedded in his continuing claim that the system is rigged against him, he rolled out […]
