  1. Agreed. She needs to go to prison too. Also, thank goodness for technology and stupidity. Had the murder not been recorded, those killers definitely would have gotten away with it.

  2. I am interested in a book review. Name/Author's Name: Talia Clay Book's Title: White Minority ISBN13: 9781735336701 Publication Date: November 5, 2021 Synopsis: Afrofuturism meets dystopia in this social satire about a sixteen-year-old white girl chasing her dreams in a world that rejects her. Two hundred fifty years has passed since the AEXT-V4 pandemic killed off ninety-nine percent of the White American population. Sixteen-year-old Tansy is a descendant of the one percent, the American elite who survived the pandemic. She lives with her younger sister and grandfather in the rapidly decaying isolation domes her wealthy ancestors built to ensure their survival. Compared to the many other citizens of her township, Tansy lives an envied and privileged life. She’s a local celebrity, destined for a future as an actress in the American Bureau of Entertainment. She’s driven, calculating, and willing to take risks to get what she wants. She loves her life. When the opportunity comes to start anew and leave the domes for good, will Tansy choose to stay behind, or will she venture out into a world of unknowns, where rumors of an incurable disease and hostile people run rampant? What will that choice mean for her future—her career ambitions, family, and identity? Book Cover:

  4. @Chevdove I hope that you are okay as well. Sometimes we just get occupied with other things but having to move or whatever is a drag, especially during these difficult times. Stay safe everybody!!!

  5. This b*tch needs to be thrown in prison right along with the rest of those cold-blooded murderers, and it's too bad she's only facing a five-year sentence. If it had been left up to her, they would have gotten away scot-free. From The Daily Mail: Former Georgia District Attorney faces five years in prison for 'protecting Ahmaud Arbery killers and delaying their arrest by more than TWO MONTHS' after ex-cop defendant called her and said 'I need some advice right away' Former District Attorney faces prison for protecting killers and delaying their arrest

  6. They either dropped off the virus or didn't want any parts of it. Either way, they decided not to stay. They'll catch up with us later.

  7. Nothing new or unexpected in the Rittenhouse verdict. White people have always dealt violently with black people especially when they merely perceive a challenge to white power. And any white person who stands with black people is fair game too. The simple fact is white people are tired and angry at peaceful black protest not just rioting or looting. For many of them a violent extralegal backlash is appropriate. History just keeps repeating itself.

  8. I think you're absolutely right about talking in terms of ethnicity and culture rather than race. This would help us challenge ideas and values that underlie systemic racism. But none of this is easy. People don't want to learn or think on a deep level. They want to hold onto familiar and longstanding beliefs about themselves and others that are wrong. People want goods and benefits for their own group not others. Capitalism while not all bad does fuel conflict among peoples which gets worse when race becomes an issue.

  9. Meanwhile, in Michigan, a 15 year old shooter has murdered 4 schoolmates. He's being charged as an adult with murder, intent to murder, weapon possession & terrorism. The teenaged killer posted on social media. His dad bought the gun a few days ago. The parents should be charged too.

From cotton candy teleportation to haunted obelisks and swallowing monsters, The Motherland packs a thrilling, and dangerous, punch. ISBN: 978-1734627992 Dr. Marvellus Djinn's Odd Scholars

  12. When @Pioneer1 mentioned taking a break in that thread, I asked him to return ASAP. As far as forum participation goes, there seems to be folks who enjoy reading it based on the view numbers. Maybe they're enlightened and/or entertained by the regular contributors. I joined because of the ongoing dialog between @Pioneer1, @Cynique, @Troy, @Mzuri, @Delano @Chevdove, @daniellegfny to name a few. I know folks get tired of reading some of the same ole rhetoric or grievance or whatever. But, the conversations are still interesting and entertaining in proportion to participant perspectives. I'm enjoying my arm chair around here. So, even if I'm one hand clapping, I'll keep bringing up topics, adding my 2 cent narrative and looking forward to reading everyone else too. Come on back to those I mentioned above and anyone lurking. The forum can be as lively as we make it.
