    Don’t need to watch it to know the title describes reality. It’s why I don’t watch any of the big news organizations OR their SUBSIDIARIES! Well, besides the fact they don’t know what journalism is.
    Mrs. Bee, keep up the good work!

    This should help explain what to do with racism.

    The presentation of false neutrality is the basis of all propaganda. False impartiality is a form of motivated speech which inherently biases discussion towards the side that does not deserve or warrant supporting. It is not politically biased to point out when people say things that are incorrect or to point out when people pursue an agenda that is harmful to others. It’s politically biased to pretend that they aren’t.

    5:14 While it’s inarguably true that the Sith were violent, destructive, hateful, self-serving, oppressors – the Jedi Order’s authoritarian, blunt, rigid, approach contributed to their downfall, and the dissolution of the Republic. #grayJedi #aintNobodyGotTimeForNuanceTheseDays

    Letter 4 💙 Election/Post Office Update: NOT SO FAST, PAL!
    Citizens: please write Congress and tell them it’s not over til it’s over —, What they did— the damage is already done. What’s unclear is how bad. Feel free to cut and paste any part of this letter.

    Let’s get real. WE DONT TRUST LOUIS DEJOY! He was sent by Donald J. Trump to destroy the U.S. Postal Service. It is not enough to stop dismantling the post office; he’s got to RESTORE it. The 23 dismissed officers must be reinstated. Federal officers must be assigned to ensure its integrity through November 3rd and beyond. Otherwise, we are still just unwitting accomplices to a crime. When Congress reconvenes on August 24, remediation must include:

    a) full congressional funding for USPS
    b) the recovery of all previously displaced ballots
    c) all fully functioning and accurate mail sorters restored to full capacity
    d) drop boxes returned to the cities at full capacity
    e) overtime reinstated for postal workers
    f) all future mail-in ballots received be logged-in and made recoverable,
    g) that all mail (including mail-in ballots) be delivered in a timely manner.
    h) the USPS Board of Governors must fire Louis DeJoy and restore the previous Postmaster General to his/her position.

    Peace and Blessings

    Words convey meaning? I’m flabbergasted!
    Here’s a word we should strike from our national and global lexicon: Race.
    Scientifically speaking, there is only ONE human race.
    The DNA of any two humans, irrespective of geography or ethnicity, is 99.9% identical.
    There are greater genetic differences -within- ethnic groups than -between- ethnic groups. Therefore, human variations cannot be scientifically subdivided into discrete races.
    It is society, not science, that reveals how the concept of different human “races” arose.
    Society has misused the term in order to divide humanity, to justify subjugation, to elicit discrimination, to fulfill selfish objectives.
    Countless numbers have been directly affected by the misuse of the word race: slavery, segregation, violence, wars, genocide… the dehumanization and destruction of entire populations.
    The continual misuse of the word perpetuates the myth of multiple human races and further polarizes our society.
    The sooner we eliminate the use of the word that drives a wedge between people, the better our world will be.
