June 1, 2017… Day 133
The disgustingly hyped and teased announcement in the Rose Garden was today. There was a band playing. I didn’t watch that garbage.
Meanwhile, the country continues to be racist as hell:
A black friend of mine was working her job in a shop in downtown Seattle yesterday and a white man saw her through the window, opened the door and yelled “F___ YOU, N____ !!” Just out of the blue. Just to yell at her.
In my sister’s primarily Mexican & Filipino neighborhood in California, white supremacists from somewhere else drive through looking for Black Lives Matter signs in yards and windows. They come back again and again once a house is identified, shouting at and threatening anyone they see in the yard or driveway or porch. The people she knows who have been targeted are white like she is. She’s afraid to put up a Black Lives Matter sign because she’s the only white person in her household — and if they’ll harass and intimidate white people with BLM signs, what would they do when a dark-skinned Mexican-Filipino man is the one associated with the sign?
And then there’s Russia, other bullshit, and a Twitter dig from none other than sweet, square Ken Jennings.
