I’ve put off reading much about him while the hype train has been rolling through the media, but his townhall was bad. He’s bragging about his lack of clear policy and saying we should just get to know his “values”. I have no idea what a candidate’s actual values are until I see the work they’re going to prioritize…
But you missed the part where those same women who started that college would not allow black students. It's not much of a point of pride because they used us to get degrees then opened a school that discriminated against us.
That has to be the most white woman/ white womanest thing I've ever heard. I'm speechless
I like, “Not sure why the Root sets out to make it all about race.”
YES! This really happens!
As a white woman from Portland Oregon, this had me rolling! On point.
Predominantly White Institutions don’t even want their Black students walking the campus. It makes no sense that an HBCU doesn’t have the right to tell white people who are not students that they cannot trespass on campus.
Where did Ponytail’s performance budget go is just as good a question? While Beyonce is spending months collaborating, casting, designing, choreographing, and practicing with a team of hundreds, this other chick shows up fresh off the tour bus like: We’ll just do what we did in Milwaukee last week.
She does seem to genuinely have an interest, especially with the work she’s done for the wrongly incarcerated. But I’m living proof that sometimes the hurdles get to be too big or interests change, and I don’t have a litter of small children, a high-maintenance husband, or all the other things she juggles. Or the…
Pelosi is probably the current worst enemy of the Democratic party.
I’m a broken record on this, but Democrats currently in power would rather Trump win a second term, than have Sanders become president. The Iron Law of Institutions: people in power within an institution would rather keep power, but lose the presidency (or Speakership, ahem), than make the world a better place if it…
Counterpoint - ThinkProgress obviously has no editorial independence from CAP and will be used as a front to cowardly smear Sanders. It is clear to anyone who reads these pieces or the emails between Podesta and Tanden that there is something personal here, why shouldn’t that be pointed out?
Someone on Instagram also called her out for a menu item labeled “Mi-so Lucky Soup”. <facepalm>
And yes, almost anyone who claims to love Chinese food will quickly bring up the difference between traditional Chinese cuisine and the fast-food American Chinese cuisine many underexposed Americans tend to think of instead.…
Actual TRADITIONAL Chinese food barely resembles the stuff served in most Chinese restaurants which specifically cater to American tastes and sensibilities.
If you are in the 1% and inveigh against the undue power of the 1%, that is not hypocrisy, that is integrity.
The real funders of “ThinkProgress” are perfectly happy with Trump and a
Republican fascist administration government. They are funding bullshit like this deliberately as part of advancing their real agenda, which has little to do with “thinking” and nothing to do with “progress.”
Sanders was referring to an April 10 story by ThinkProgress, among others, that noted that the Vermont senator is a millionaire, which the site called “very off-brand and embarrassing.”
Shoulda called it Iron Fist’s Tropey Palace. No, Pagoda. Iron Fist's Food Pagoda.
Why even eat it if you think it’s “unclean”?
Do these people EVER stop and think, “wow, this logo and theme is racist, perhaps I should re-consider”? Or are they so sheltered to where they think they’re “saving” others from “unclean” Chinese food?
I somehow scored an invite to the Black Panther premiere after party in New York and grabbed my cheeseburger and a table right by the entrance. I don’t get starstruck but I’ve loved Chadwick Boseman since 42 and as he passed by, my friend saw my mouth agape and quickly said to him “my friend loves you, will you take a…
