The 2nd article by Susan Raffo on white privilege...this time about whites being harmed themselves.

https://m.dailykos.com/stories/1692745



I'm reposting Irna's next posting sharing her friend Susan Raffo's second article because i believe it furthers the discussion on ending white privilege we are having here at Our Salon.



I have sometimes posted my thoughts suggesting that until we deal with core beliefs around coping with scarcity and abundance, we will not be able to also see the systems or institutions we support… Continue

Perhaps an eruption of racial bigotry at the foot of Jefferson's statue is as fitting as the racist battle cry at Lee's

https://www.dailykos.com/stories/2017/8/12/1688970/-This-is-the-Moment

I've spent a good portion of my day and night watching and reading everything I can find on the Unite The Right riot in Charlottesville, Va today, in part because the issue of racial inequality and bigotry saddens and wounds me and so many others so deeply, and in part because I have family that live there, that have gone to UVA,…

After the Voting Rights Act was gutted in 2013, it's still working for white conservatives. Maybe not so much for others. It's August 6th and a time to remember and act.

A repost from Daily Kos blogger Denise Oliver Valez giving us THE comprehensive history and current layout of the Voting Rights Act of August 6,1965. I lived in America before it. Now I'm thinking I'm going to be living…

Thinking outside the barrel.

Brilliant, creative responses by landowners fighting eminent domain seizures by TransCanada Keystone pipeline.

Daily Show repost - The Translators

An excellent point is made in this hilarious skit - much of the world only hears Trump through a translator.

Trump's invisible border wall by declaration is taken to court by asylum seekers

Laws reflect and uphold our freedom to live and express our agreed upon values as a plurality of people. The latest wave of anti-immigration proponents are, once again, about to be reminded of that.…

Best analysis of Trump's @Mika tweet i've seen so far is by Lawrence O'Donnell - distraction, distraction, distraction

http://www.msnbc.com/the-last-word/watch/lawrence-on-trump-and-the-women-he-hates-980073539893

We all know it, but dang! It's hard not to react and come to one another's defense. Many manipulators like Trump know this of course. Trump plays to one audience, and one audience only - his own. They love this stuff. Republicans will use it for cover. His true supporters will have…

Blood, women, and Trump. More MSM pushback against Trump's crass behavior.

I think this conflict between the MSM and Trump is more substance than show. There is a real struggle by an otherwise unexercised media against an autocrat to draw a line in the sand. It's having the effect of eroding Trump's outlier base, leaving him a smaller core that delights in his trash-talking as a way to take their country back from the "liberal sissies."
