Image result for black white children playing together

Kids who used to be playmates are being taught racism from early on, by our school system.

This is a guest post from Ms. Lara Dale who is a friend of mine and fellow member of Code Pink:

"If the only argument Zionists have to back up their war crimes is calling me an anti-Semite, here is my response:

Zionism is secular, Judaism is not. All Jews are not Semitic, but Palestinians are, going back thousands of…

I remember reading comments here, from some people, that they both "liked" what Pope Francis has said and that they had "high hopes" for him.  There also have been several "kudos" regarding his stances on gay and women's rights.

I, obviously, made none of them because, to me, it is clear that he goes "full Trump"…

The Patriots From The Tea Party, Lady Macbeth and Jesus Walk Into A Bar...

Well...  actually they must have been members of the bar...  because they were all invoked during hearings of the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals... who ruled last week that feeding the homeless, in spite of numerous city and state ordinances against it, is an “expressive conduct protected by the First Amendment.”

"I Have A Dream..."

Fifty-five years ago today, Dr. Martin Luther King gave the most moving speech in history.  

It's worth watching a few more times because his dream is as far from being fulfilled as it was back in 1963.

"...this pope's welcoming lgbt Catholics..."... Huh??? On which planet???

Once again, I feel the need to respond to one of Jonathan Wolfman's comments which, frankly, boggles my mind... to wit:
