‘Nobody’s Black ‘White Girl’: Gabby Douglas’s Olympics by Stephane Dunn

‘Nobody’s Black ‘White Girl’: Gabby Douglas’s Olympics by Stephane Dunn | @DrStephaneDunn | NewBlackMan (in Exile) I had hoped that first annoying media nitpicking of Gabby Douglas wouldn’t spin into what it has – an all out absurd race and gender politics injected assault on a young woman who has already earned and deserves the respect of the country she represented so well in 2012 and continues to in 2016. Yet,...

For What Do We Stand?

09-06-2016 • https://www.lewrockwell.com The humanoid collective is in an unforgiving snit over the refusal of NFL quarterback, Colin Kaepernick, to stand for the playing of the national anthem. For a society that was once grounded in a greater tolerance for individual values and preferences, this reaction is another symptom of a system that no longer serves – much less tolerates – the diverse nature of human life.

Draymond Can’t Even Buy a Ticket to Game & Sit With Fans

While it is trying to get sorted out by the NBA how Draymond can celebrate with Warriors if they win Game 5. I found something interesting. What had been quoted about him paying a $500 fine to be in the building is a little outdated, it is actually $2000 according to the latest NBA rule book.
