Martin Luther King Jr.'s true, radical legacy is being whitewashed by people looking for easy absolution
The celebration of the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. takes place this year amidst political chaos. In particular, it is occurring in the middle a weeks-long government shutdown that has pitted President Donald Trump, the leader of a party that is 90 percent white, against the most diverse Congress in American history over an idea that has been derided as racist and xenophobic.
Praise for Dr. King’s legacy will emerge from this partisan rancor. Rather than invoke unity, however, such praise exposes a difficult truth: King's legacy has become as segregated as the country he tried to heal.
How the First LGBTQ Mariachi Became an Outlet for Advocacy
What social power does music have? Where does that power come from?
Mariachi musicians Carlos Samaniego and Natalia Melendez found out the hard way—first through discrimination, ridicule and professional blackballing among their musician peers, then via the challenging path of advocating for the acceptance of gay, lesbian and transgender people in the mariachi world.

‘There’s so much to be outraged by everyday with regards to this administration – unless you are really paying attention and follow specific news feeds, the policy changes which negatively effecting the LGBTQ community go unnoticed.’
Ron finally added: ‘Many people, straight or gay, are unaware of the steady dismantling of our rights and protections. I hope through this project raises some awareness.’

Dwayne Johnson Lets His Daughter Paint His Nails, 'Cause He Has "Papa Bear Priorities"
Dwayne Johnson is a busy man, but that doesn't stop him from making time for his three daughters. The 46-year-old actor recently shared a photo on Instagram, from when he was on the way out the door for work and his 2-year-old daughter Jasmine insisted he "really needed" his nails painted. Dwayne, ever the dutiful dad, couldn't say no when she looked up at him with "her mama's gorgeous blue eyes." Aw!
New York Schools To Begin Mental Health Education Classes
At the top of July 2018, New York State (NYS) required public schools to implement a mental health segment within the curriculum. With the school year now underway, the program will take effect and aim to nurture children’s perception and experience with mental health.
While the learning plan aims to educate young students, it’ll also serve as a learning tool for teachers. At the top of the year, when the mandate was first announced, Glenn Liebman, CEO of NYS Mental Health Association, said to News10, “We’re not looking to be psychiatrists. We don’t want teachers to be clinicians or anything like that. We’re looking for them to have a basic understanding about mental health issues, about signs and symptoms.”

Humans have been messing with the climate for thousands of years
Thousands of years ago, ancient farmers grew oats, corn and wheat, just as they do today. They also cultivated rice and raised livestock. But a millennia ago, they cleared much more land than modern day farmers do, despite having fewer people to feed. That’s because farming was far less efficient. Mechanized harvesters didn’t exist, and growers had yet to develop crops that could be planted in tightly packed rows, yielding more food from less space.
The scientists used a computerized climate model to simulate the climate nearly 777,000 years ago. The climate back then looked more or less what the climate today would look like if not for the warming caused by carbon pollution from ancient farming and modern industrialization, he said. This climate model offered higher resolution than previous models used by the team.
Former Writer Saw Bert And Ernie As 'Loving Couple,' Sesame Workshop Disagrees
New life was breathed into a perennial debate this week, when a former Sesame Street writer revealed that not only did he consider beloved characters Bert and Ernie to be a gay couple, but he used his own relationship as creative inspiration.
On Sunday, Queerty published an interview with Mark Saltzman, who worked on the show in the 1980s and 90s, asking him if he thought of Bert and Ernie as a gay couple.
"I always felt that without a huge agenda, when I was writing Bert & Ernie, they were," Saltzman said. "So I don't think I'd know how else to write them, but as a loving couple."
