Donald Trump says Joe Biden is 'rushing out of his basement early' to campaign in response to poll showing the president winning nationwide and surging in battleground states 

 

Donald Trump has mocked Joe Biden for 'coming out of the basement earlier than his hoped', after polls showed the president ahead in key battleground states.

Biden will campaign on Monday in Pennsylvania - a swing state vital for victory

In a series of Sunday evening tweets, the president celebrated recent polling, which suggests he is on course to defeat his Democrat rival.

Jacob Blake's sister says she holds 'Black America accountable' and says 'You must stand. You must fight, but not with violence and chaos' as she gives powerful speech to March on Washington 

 

Jacob Blake's sister delivered a powerful speech at the March on Washington's 57th anniversary rally where she ordered Black America to 'stand up' and fight, but urged the public to avoid 'violence and chaos'.

Letetra Widman took the stand at the Lincoln Memorial, where Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his historic, 'I Have a Dream' speech in 1963, and said, 'We will not be a footstool to oppression.'

'Black America, I hold you accountable. You must stand, you must fight, but not was violence and chaos. Learn to love yourself black people. Unify,' Widman said.

Painters In Kenosha Are Covering Up Black Lives Matter Messages With Murals About “Love” And “Unity” 

 

Deshauntis stepped outside and surveyed the scene in his hometown. In the aftermath of days of protests over the police shooting of a Black man, dozens of people had come to paint the city’s boarded-up downtown in bright, colorful murals. A man was singing folk music. A local church was handing out big cups of free strawberry lemonade.

"I see the effort," Deshauntis said, tightly. He added, "I don’t really see a lot of Black people out here."

And the murals — they didn’t say “Black Lives Matter.” The message across all of downtown Kenosha, where some buildings had been scorched during the protests and others reduced to still-smoking rubble, was about love. That’s what people were painting almost everywhere: “Love is the answer.”

“I support the protests,” John, who like other people interviewed for this story asked not to have his last name used, told BuzzFeed News. “I do not support the violence and the anarchy.”

He pointed, though, to the words “No Justice, No Peace,” a common rallying cry of the Black Lives Matter movement. “I totally disagree with this,” he said. “That’s not the way it goes. Justice and peace I agree with, but when it’s worded this way, that is not the way to handle it. Otherwise we’ll continue to have anarchy.”

Joe Biden condemns 'needless violence' in Kenosha in wake of police shooting of Jacob Blake saying 'burning down communities is not protest' and praising victim's mom's call for peace 

 

Joe Biden condemned the 'needless violence' in Kenosha, Wisconsin in the wake of police shooting Jacob Blake and said Wednesday he had spoken with members of Blake's family.

'Protesting brutality is a right and absolutely necessary, but burning down communities is not protest, it's needless violence,' Biden said. 'Violence that endangers lives, violence that guts businesses and shutters businesses that serve the community, that's wrong.'

The Democratic presidential nominee said he had spoken with Blake's mother, father and sister, and quoted his mother Julia Jackson in the short video Biden posted to Twitter.

Celebrities’ gratuitous apologies make Black Lives Matter all about them 

 

The arson, looting and rioting have died down, but we’re still a long way from cultural normalcy in the US of A. (That A is for antagonism). One strange new feature of the culture is the abject, I-hurl-myself-at-your-feet-and-spit-on-myself apology in which celebrities demand everyone sit up and pay attention while they tell us how sorry they are about some nonsense infraction they committed years ago.

The Black Lives Matter movement is hotter than any movie star right now, so even white movie stars crave a piece of it. They loudly shout about the racial virtue they possess that no one asked about in the first place. For instance, Ryan Reynolds. Why did he feel the need to apologize this week for having his wedding to Blake Lively on a “plantation”?

Barack Obama used to live in a house — a large, white one — that was originally built with slave labor. Did he apologize, or marvel at how things have changed for the better? This entire country is built on ground where bad stuff once happened.

Later in the week a black actress, Zoe Saldana, apologized for playing a black singer, Nina Simone, in a movie nobody saw four years ago.

The murder spike in big US cities, explained 

 

As if a Covid-19 pandemic wasn’t bad enough, the headlines suggest America is in the middle of a new wave of homicides — from New York City to Chicago to Minneapolis.

The data backs up the headlines, suggesting that homicide numbers are significantly higher in at least some major US cities. But it’s not clear if this is part of a nationwide phenomenon, or if it’s something isolated to urban centers, because we don’t have good data outside the large cities. To make matters more confusing, other types of crime, including violent crime overall, appear to have decreased in many of the same cities.

Still, there’s enough in the three data sets to draw some conclusions: At least in major US cities, homicides are up overall this summer — in some cases, significantly higher. But other kinds of crime, including violent crime overall, aren’t up and may actually have decreased so far this year. There was also a brief spike in burglaries in major cities starting in late May, an increase that was so brief and contained to specific cities that experts told me it was likely due to riots and looting surrounding some Black Lives Matter protests.

Beyond the pandemic, police are going to have more trouble fighting crime — including any current or future spikes — if large segments of the community don’t trust them. That’s where police reform comes into play. It’s a complicated topic, separate from a possible spike in violence this year. But, in short, experts say police should, at a minimum, show the communities they serve that they understand the concerns, acknowledge mistakes, and will change how officers are deployed and targeted.

Otherwise, there’s a good chance that protests against police will flare up, just as they did from 2014 to 2016 and have again this summer. If protests lead to more violence — whether by leading to depolicing, or sowing and exposing distrust in law enforcement — that’s going to create public safety problems.

America Is on Track for a Million Coronavirus Cases a Day, and at Least 800,000 Deaths, by the End of 2020 

 

If someone had suggested five months ago that we would be seeing more than 3 million cases and 135,000 COVID-19 deaths in the U.S. by mid-July, I wouldn’t have believed it.

But now it’s distinctly possible that, five months from now, half of all Americans could have been infected with SARS-CoV-2, and more than 800,000 Americans may die in this extraordinary outbreak. That is what many of our most prominent public-health experts now expect.

It’s time to cancel ‘The Star-Spangled Banner.’ Here’s what should replace it 

 

Scholars disagree about the meaning of this couplet. Some read the words as a reference to escaped slaves fighting alongside the British, who promised to grant freedom to Black soldiers in exchange for their service. Historian Jason Johnson has called “The Star-Spangled Banner” “a diss track to Black people who had the audacity to fight for their freedom.” Marc Ferris, the author of “Star-Spangled Banner: The Unlikely Story of America’s National Anthem,” has written that Key was likely using the term “slave” more loosely, to describe “all of the monarch’s loyal subjects, including British troops — as contrasted with free patriot Americans.” Others argue that this context is academic: The only part of the poem that anyone knows, that anyone ever sings, is the first stanza, the one that begins “O say, can you see.”

But there are also arguments against “The Star-Spangled Banner” on aesthetic grounds, criticisms that have dogged the anthem for decades. For one thing, it’s not an especially American song. Its lyrics are ornate and Anglophile, with syntax that frustrates the efforts of normal human Americans to follow along — to deduce who or what, exactly, is gleaming and streaming.

0:12 / 3:08 "It's Hard Out Here for a Pimp" Wins Original Song: 2006 Oscars

"You know it's hard out here for a pimp (you ain't knowin')
When he tryin' to get this money for the rent (you ain't knowin')
For the Cadillac's and gas money spent (you ain't knowin')
Because a whole lot of bitches talkin' shit (you ain't knowin')
Will have a whole lot of bitches talkin' shit (you ain't knowin')
In my eyes I done seen some crazy thangs in the streets
Gotta couple hoes workin' on the changes for me
But I gotta keep my game tight like Kobe on game night
Like takin' from a ho don't know no better,
I know that ain't right
Done seen people killed, done seen people deal
Done seen people live in poverty with no meals
It's fucked up where I live, but that's just how it is
It might be new to you, but it's been like this for years." 14-Jul-2020

Burger King workers stage strike after trans co-worker dies while working with COVID-19 symptoms 

 

Staffers at the Santa Monica fast food restaurant retaliated after Angela Martinez Gómez died after being reportedly made to work a week even while displaying symptoms. Picketers, as well as the complaint, claimed that the company did not provide staff with protective gear.

One manager at the branch at 1919 Pico Boulevard allegedly blamed the death of Gómez, 42, of Oaxaca, Mexico, on hormone injections, KTLA5 reported.

Managers made Gómez carry on working for a week even while she spluttered, took frequent bathroom breaks and was visibly ill, the complaint said, before leaving her June 26 shift early.

An Unprecedented 14 Million Children Are Going Hungry Due To The COVID Crisis

Goya Foods CEO Won't Apologize for Complimenting Trump, Says Boycott Is 'Suppression of Speech'

Goya 'buy-cott' begins as customers load up on product after Trump backlash

On second thought. Give the lobster to them (the children.) I'll starve. Who gives a fuck. 11-Jul-2020
I am holding her and her tribe responsible for attempting to take food out of community mouths. Some people depend on cooking with Goya products. We enjoy the products because it reminds us of our heritage, its affordable and it's home. Some of us actually like who we are. I don't give a fuck where food comes from as long as we eat. Just because you are afforded privilege doesn't mean you get to take. Unless you are going to make whole every person denied food, keep your paws clipped.

PS: If you are going to make everyone whole, I want lobster... 11-Jul-2020

The 'Best of Nextdoor' Account Is Trying to Make the Site Less Racist 

 

A social media network that is a combination of Facebook, Craigslist, and neighborhood watch, Nextdoor is a platform known for its "Karen problem," and hosting busybodies more worried about property than Black people, as one VICE story showed.

Jenn Takahashi, a public relations professional, started Best of Nextdoor in 2017 when she was living in the quiet neighborhood of Glen Park in San Francisco. At the time, she was working for a PR agency and found the job very stressful. For some reason, she told VICE, browsing the silliness on Nextdoor brought her peace.

"I had this one neighbor that would complain about someone rearranging her lawn gnome every single day at 4 p.m. on the dot," she remembered. Nonsense like this, she said, "was a reminder for me to not sweat the small stuff." Later, she'd start Best of Nextdoor, a Twitter account and website meant to capture moments like these. When submitting, users are reminded to keep the subject matter light and funny. But after Takahashi saw Nextdoor's initial statement supporting Black Lives Matter, she felt a responsibility to comment.

Without empathy the term ‘community’ is redundant 

 

This idea of belonging and imagined private utopias were characterised in the subvertive explorations of the mid-twentieth century works of David Hockney’s pictorial escapes in Domestic Scene (1963), retreats in his Cavafey poetry inspired The Beginning (1966), or differently in a more sexually liberating yet overtly violent esoteric excess William Borough’s novel Wild Boys (1971). However courageous in their time for avocation for same sex relations, in retrospect collectively they portray queer visibility as lacking in outward empathy and visibility for others. This has become confounded.

Such manifestos for a vision for a supposed utopia doesn’t widen for the inclusion for lesbians, transgender and BAME individuals. Also how does their context fit within the queer landscape of today given the lack of presence for others, especially where historically queer spaces and our representation are largely tailored and dominated by cis white gay men. This hasn’t largely been questioned to the extent till now in which Rosie Hastings and Hannah Quinlan’s practice observes and rightly exposes.

Bus company criticised for “offensive” decision to rebrand Pride bus to an NHS one 

 

A bus company has come under fire for attempting to rebrand their Pride bus.
Plymouth Citybus took to Twitter over the weekend to share pictures of their new rainbow bus, which has been rebranded from one showing support for LGBTQ+ Pride to one showing support for the NHS.

“Rainbows have become synonymous with hope and the NHS during the current pandemic,” they wrote, “so we thought what better way to show our thanks to our amazing NHS and key workers, than to re-brand our Pride bus to our rainbow NHS bus?”

The decision to rebrand the Pride bus has caused a divide, with many highlighting that the rainbow flag has been associated with Pride for decades, and others pointing out the often fickle nature of companies showing support for the LGBTQ+ community.

I'm a black man in a Covid-19 hotspot. I don't have sympathy for people of color who won't social distance 

 

I was walking home late one night recently when I ran into them. I froze, swore out loud and backpedaled.

A group of my neighbors had taken their house party to the street. Streams of smiling people without face masks spilled into the cul-de-sac ahead of me, blocking my only route home. Never mind that we live in a viral hotspot -- predominately black DeKalb County, which has the second-highest number of confirmed Covid-19 cases in Georgia. They partied on as I waited for a path to clear.

I've been thinking about those neighbors as I read stories with civil rights advocates saying black people and brown people are facing harsher treatment by law enforcement officers for violating coronavirus safety orders.
But there's a question I never see addressed in any of those stories:

Why isn't there any moral outrage directed at those same black or brown people who refuse to take precautions that would protect their community?
