Olympian Feyisa Lilesa stood up to Ethopia's violence & became a hero

Olympic silver medalist Feyisa Lilesa cannot safely return to Ethiopia because of his brave protest against his government's brutal oppression of the Oromo people. I have an Oromo friend who has been sending me firsthand reports of the government violence. It is sickening. If Lilesa wants to come to America, we should welcome him.

Trump staffers busted for posting racist memes and calling for violence against minorities

Our friend Ernest Hopkins comments:

Wow, as if his disingenuous speech to the 'African American' community wasn't enough, now we see his staff, priming the pump for the racists. It's pretty bad.

Gee, how can you resist a pitch like this: Your schools are crap, you live in squalor, you have no jobs and your kids are in prison! Let's be honest: this is not really aimed at black folks. No one with more dignity than Stepin Fetchit would buy that. Since he is so ignorant, someone should sit him down and tell him about Black Wall Street. About generations of struggle. About everyone from Nat Turner to Clementa Pinckney. About Madam C.J. Walker, Charles Drew, George Washington Carver, and Katherine Johnson. About the self-educated ex slave who became the most powerful speaker in our history. About the courage and discipline that sustained a bus boycott 60 years ago for more than a year despite threats and bombings. Tell him what Barack Obama has had to overcome to function as president. Tell him about Oak Bluffs. If he didn't treat African Americans like exotica, if he actually met with and listened to them, he might have picked up some of this stuff.
