You can’t ‘heal’ White supremacy — a bloody lesson from America’s Civil War

Republicans talk about “healing” more than “justice” today. Sounds familiar … Remember when President Abraham Lincoln wanted the country to “heal” after the Civil War ended in 1865? You know, back when the current Republicans’ ancestors were Democrats who owned slaves, were whole White supremacists, became separatists by creating their own country in America called […]

White supremacy matters: the Trump coup and case for overdue justice

You can’t ‘heal’ White supremacy. Exactly a week after this fake Christian death cult I keep writing about attempted to overthrow the US government by overrunning the US Capitol, many legislative members from the Party of No Brains — supposedly fearing the cult’s potential for hurling death threats — defended Coup Inciter in Chief President […]

Senator Harris, the presidency, her Jamaican roots and those curious answers about weed

For whatever reasons, I have this bad habit of writing stuff and not posting it. My thoughts about US Senator and presidential candidate Kamala Harris’ interview on The Breakfast Club Morning Show well over a week ago is an example. I’ll do better … My observations about her “Whites-only bank” affiliation aside, the interview went […]
