Morning Joe’s Mika calls Michelle Fields case a “joke”


Michelle Fields filed a complaint against Donald Trump’s campaign manager. The prosecution has declined to prosecute, but Mika Brezenski who declares herself an advocate for women took direct personal aim at the victim. We saw the tape and the takedown from what we saw it did not look that bad, but we were not the one on the receiving end of the assault. Mika needs to take a seat. Michelle Fields must not be a member of the Mika tribe because if she were Mika would have more emphathy and less snark.

Hillary Clinton and Bill de Blasio joke about CP time, and frankly it is not funny


Not feeling the racial humor. Saw this on Twitter but it did not make it to the news. Imagine if Donald Trump said it. Clinton and De Blasio need to dial it back. They think they have a black pass but they don’t have a right to make this joke and more people need to say it. Share your thoughts.

WGN Underground is Must See Television


I have been watching the series WGN Underground. The story chronicles the story of a group of slaves running away to freedom. I like the show because the slaves are not portrayed as noble and long suffering. They are angry and they yearn to be free. They are intelligent people who know life should be more than shining master’s boots or cooking for the inhabitants in the big house. We see that the slaves were not all nice, they had their own agendas and, and some over the past few weeks have shown themselves to be ruthless. We see their human frailties and that makes the characters even more enduring as well as interesting. It airs Wednesday at 10PM eastern. It is worthy of watching or set your DVR you will not be disappointed.

Baltimore Cop Anthony Spence slaps student around, but was he justified?

Anthony C. Spence faces second degree assault charges. He was caught on tape slapping and kicking a student around. Spence says the student spit on him. His attorney Warren Brown says these students are different. Browns said “You’re dealing with some kids who are antisocial, lead-poisoned, irrational, angry, mired in poverty and despair”.* He went on to say “It’s not Leave It to Beaver. You’re dealing with a tough group of people.” So what does this mean? The school is free to do whatever because these students are not worthy of protection? Would this be viewed as acceptable if a white cop was caught wailing on a kid in this same way or would this be a case for Black Lives Matter? Watch the clip and tell me if this kid deserved to be treated this way? Share your thoughts.
