Today, the Revolution Did Not Happen (but it May Have Started)

An Argentinian Catholic, a Tibetan Buddhist, a Pakistani Muslim and an American Lesbian Talk Show Host walk into a bar. Bartender says, “Sorry, we don’t serve your kind here.” The foursome exchanges looks and replies, “Well, damn! Then who do you serve?!” … Today, the Revolution did not happen. (But it may have started.) Instead, […]

I Have a Strong Message for Those Defending the Violence in Ferguson

Let me get this out of the way first – I’m not here to write about whether or not I believe Darren Wilson should have been indicted in the shooting death of Mike Brown. People have already had their minds made up on that issue for weeks. People who think he’s guilty are going to […]

The War On Whites: Why The Conservative Media Sells Excuses For Racism

Pro-Darren Wilson Group Gives Absolutely Ridiculous Public Speech (Video)

Michael Brown And The Criminal Police State In Ferguson, Missouri

On Saturday night, in a suburb north of St. Louis, another unarmed black teenager, Michael Brown, was shot to death by law enforcement.
