The sole is not the traditional boot sole for Timberlands. Whatever you want to call them, they aren’t regular Timbs.

She should wear Timbs. Not these weird gym shoe-Timberland hybrid.

I think you’re misreading here. She’s using a common grammatical construction where she doesn’t mean that she might have family roots in Mississippi but that while it may be true that she has roots there, she hasn’t been.

Don’t need to read up on it: I was there! You stated that “the schools [remove officers] by vote of the school administrative staff and faculty,” which is not how it works. LSC meetings and votes cannot be “organized by the principals and faculty” as you say, this is super against the rules. Read more

I don’t think you have any knowledge of what CPD in schools actually do...

That’s not true: the LSCs vote on it. There are a couple representatives from the school and community but most are parents.

We did actually ask for more TAs and SECAs! And I would love to see the evidence that having 37 kindergarteners in one class with one teacher and not enough desks is effective. Actually, there is evidence that longer school days do not improve outcomes :).

Um yeah no just because they are packaged does not mean there are added chemicals. That bag of kale is just kale. Bag of carrots is just carrots. Bag of peppers is just peppers. Bag of corn is just corn. Box of spinach is just spinach. Can of beans is beans, water and salt (aka same ingredients necessary for home Read more

In Chicago, the items at farmer’s market are 3-5x more expensive than the grocery store. That’s why I don’t shop at them, although I would love to. (And I have worked at a number of farmer’s markets all across the city: it’s the same everywhere.) Also, many of her packaged items are still veggies with no added Read more

Of course! But the city of Chicago as a whole entity is wildly different from Quincy or East St. Louis.

I wouldn’t call St. Louis and KC major urban centers in the same class as Chicago. They’re less than 1/5 the size and don’t have the same power (institutional, business, cultural).

Well if you spend so much time going between East St. Louis, Quincy and Chicago, then you surely understand the difference between a major metropolitan area and a small blue collar city.

Not the conversation we are having. You are comparing apples to oranges. By your logic, we should all move to Antarctica because clearly they have public safety figured out: just look at their murder rate compared to the US’s!

Chicago is the Midwest, yes, but “Middle America” is a colloquial term similar to “The Heartland” specific to suburban/rural areas that are typically conservative and blue collar, not large and diverse cities. I encourage you to check out Chicago and a town like East Saint Louis or Quincy. They’re the same state but Read more

Have you heard of this awesome statistical concept called proportions? Kansas City’s population is under 500,000 and Chicago’s is over 2.5 million.

Messing around would be fine—stick your middle finger up at the cut out, put your arm around her, pretend to pick her nose, put a cowboy hat on her, whatever. Groping and choking the image of a woman (in this case a woman of color known for standing up to the man named on their shirts and getting shit for it) Read more

Actually, the family has specifically asked that photos not be used to respect their privacy, asshole. See the Go Fund Me linked in the article for more.
