I am constantly amazed at the sheer number of tone-deaf people who continue to defend the Racist In Chief. Almost as hard to grasp are those who no different in principle than Trump, congratulate themselves for not being racist by virtue of the degree of expression.
African-Americans and other People of Color have repeatedly proven these forms of criminal abuse take place on a pervasive basis for over a century. It is worth noting how once again how real outraged doesn’t show until European-Americans as in “White” Americans are made to experience the lash of oppression by government sanctioned authoritarian institutions and their agents.
It may not be a majority of officers, prosecutors, judges but the scope and persistence of this problem suggests widespread structural and cultural values, beliefs, practices that give implicit license to far too many individuals and groups. How long will we continue to indulge in this dubious luxury of willful ignorance and self-deception?
Snell certifies open-face helmets as well as full-face, so why not modular?
When it comes tohelmetsafety, Snell is the final word in the US. Racing organizations, whose riders are arguably the most likely to actually put their helmets to the ultimate test, require that Snell certification.
It has long been considered the gold standard ofhelmet certification, far above the meager DOT standards required for legality. Snell certifies both full-face and open-face helmets but does not certify modular helmets, despite their safety advantages above the fully exposed open-face. So why?
Mississippi state lawmaker and Republican gubernatorial candidate Robert Foster refused to travel with a reporter covering his campaign — because the reporter is a woman.
The reporter, Larrison Campbell, is one of several journalists from the outlet Mississippi Today, who asked if they could shadow Republican candidates running to lead the state.
Both of Foster’s opponents agreed to this arrangement, although the reporter assigned to cover their campaigns happened to be male. Foster, however, refused to allow Campbell to ride along with him unless she was accompanied by a man.
