TO RESPOND TO DIVISIVE RHETORIC, IMPACT OF GOP FRONTRUNNER WITH http://www.stophatedumptrump.com

HARRY BELAFONTE, EVE ENSLER, KIMBERLE CRENSHAW, KERRY WASHINGTON,

NOAM CHOMSKY, ALICE WALKER, JANE FONDA, LILY TOMLIN, VIJAY PRASHAD, FEKKAK MAMDOUGH, HUNDREDS OF OTHERS SIGN ON TO AMPLIFY VOICES AGAINST HATE, CALL FOR MEDIA ACCOUNTABILITY

New York, NY, January 20, 2016…….A diverse coalition cutting across race, gender, religion, sexual orientation and party affiliation has organized to give voice to Americans calling out Donald Trump for his hate speech, misogyny, Islamaphobia, and racism. A new web site, http://www.stophatedumptrump.com, will provide a platform for those who do not and will not stand for the continued threats, rhetoric and fear mongering by the Republican Presidential front-runner.

“Trump is a frontrunner candidate who promises to ‘build a wall’ on our borders, humiliates and denigrates Muslims, women, immigrants, racial minorities as part of his ‘stump speech,’ allows protesters to be beaten at his rallies and in fact encourages hostility toward anyone who disagrees with him,” said Eve Ensler, activist and playwright.

“We are offering Americans a chance to be heard and engage in action, as Trump’s campaign gain momentum even as he increases his hateful and divisive rhetoric,” continued Ensler. “We also intend to put the media and political institutions on notice that they are accountable for normalizing Trump’s extremism by treating it as entertainment, by giving it inordinate and unequal air time and by refusing to investigate, interrogate or condemn it appropriately,” concluded Ensler.

“We hope that the diverse and passionate group of individuals that immediately agreed to sign on to this campaign will inspire a collective awakening amongst Americans to speak out, create and join initiatives that bring attention to the many who reject Trump’s vision for the country,” said Kimberlé Crenshaw, law professor at Columbia and UCLA Law Schools, who spearheaded “Say Her Name” a campaign to draw attention to Black women killed and sexually assaulted by the police.

“In a true democracy, there has to be a line between deliberative debate and mob rule,” said Crenshaw. “Trump has crossed the line and much of the media has exacerbated the problem by treating his remarks as entertainment, effectively encouraging his competition to do the same. We have already seen the hateful and exclusionary rhetoric taking place at his rallies, where opponents have been beaten, threatened and ejected. This is not a made for TV movie. This is real. If we don’t want this country to take another step down that road, then we all need to speak up. Our democracy cannot be left in the hands of those who would rather watch or participate in a train wreck than stop it,” concluded Crenshaw.

Daily Caller had this photo on Twitter. The story was about a White House official. Does this really look like a White House official?

Rev. Run and Tyrese coming to OWN…is this a problem?


This Saturday Rev. Run and Tyrese will join the OWN family. They are going to be acting as relationship gurus, check out what Tyrese said about fat women in 2013. “No two situations are the same. If you are fat and nasty and you don’t like the way you look, do something about it. It’s simple,” the singer-turned-actor replied. Continuing his no-holds-barred rant, he said, “When you take a shower and you put your fat, nasty body in the shower and by the time you get out, the mirrors are all steamed up so you don’t look at what you did to yourself. That may sound offensive or insensitive but ultimately, you are big as hell because you have earned that s–t. You worked your a– off to eat everything in sight to get big as hell. If you got a problem with the way you look, then you need to do something about it,” he added. “Excuses sound best to the people that’s making them up.” Of course after online backlash he apologized. So now in 2016 he and Rev. Run will be dispensing advice on a network owned by Queen Oprah. Share your thoughts.

Donald Trump and Sarah Palin, the Dynamic Duo, what’s not to like?

We have John McCain to thank for bringing Sarah Palin to the national stage. The same McCain that Donald Trump said is not a war hero. So now McCain’s protege has come out and literally given Donald Trump a grizzly bear hug. Palin is the godmother of the anger movement and Trump is the beneficiary of her prep efforts. They have tapped into the anger and they plan on riding this current of discontentment to the GOP convention. It’s a celebration of negativity. Let the games begin.

#OscarsSoWhite….should black people boycott the Oscar Awards?

Last week the Oscar nominees were announced. The acting nominees are all white. This is the second year in a row that this has happened. Is this racism or did the committee look at it in a color blind way and simply nominate the people they think stood out this year? Jada Pinkett-Smith thinks something is wrong and she is completely unbiased. Well maybe not since many had said that her husband Will Smith was a shoo-in for a nod for his acting in the movie Concussion. Read the linked story and tell me what do you think.

Iranian Hostages Released, good news? Well not to everyone

Four Iranian hostages have been released. Surely this is good news to all Americans. Not so fast. We are citizens of a partisan America. We take sides on everything and this is no different. The Republicans reaction to the news is muted at best. Have we really reached a point where good news is no longer good? Share your thoughts.

Detroit Kids Forced to wear coats in classrooms, and why this should matter to us

Last night I watched the CBS Evening News and saw a story on Detroit Public Schools. The school was so cold that the children had to wear coats. The school had a whole in the roof and water had damaged the gym so the children had to exercise in the corridors of the school. Detroit schools are controlled by the state so the city’s hands are tied. They interviewed a state employee assigned to oversee the debacle and he appeared dressed to the nines and sitting in a office that I’m sure was heated. He said they were aware of the situation, but awareness does not mean the situation will be immediately addressed. So what is going to be done and when? Will the kids be in their coats until spring? Will they ever be able to play in the gym again? We have 3rd world countries with better schools than this. Read the linked article and share your thoughts. How can we help Detroit schools?
