uspol: MLK blvd in KC 

a bunch of white folks go into a black church and stand there to protest that a street was renamed to MLK blvd (runs through mostly black area)

even while the preacher tells them to sit down as they are not respecting the *christian* service, they continue to stand

and then the city votes to change the name back

my fellow americans-
take your white privileged attitudes and shove them up all the way up your ignorant assholes- amen!

finally
my obession[s] with the occupant of white house and his nearly constant criminal behavior is/are abating ...

"finding your roots"
simplistic sometimes
overly dramatic

but whenever i see an episode
on black americans
i am more convinced than ever
of james baldwin's formulation:

"the history of black america *is* the history of america."

i (still) crack up at kids confronting their parents who prank them by saying they've eaten all their halloween candy.

i never wonder where the kids learn the manner in which they show their dissapointment ...
