Hi Everyone. Collected a few videos from the 2019 NAACP Images Awards show. I don’t know when this organization is going to get their act together and get up to speed on decent website and videos. Any wonder some folks don’t show up for their show.

Any Country That Could Produce Marvin Gaye Has Reason to Hope
t was 37-years ago this Monday that Marvin Gaye was shot to death by his father, Marvin Gay, Sr. Things had been terrible between them for all of the younger Marvin’s life. It had become worse over the previous several months. One layer of the tragedy was that Marvin Gaye was in the middle of a remarkable comeback. His “Sexual Healing” had broken him back onto the charts with a vengeance. Not long before he died, I saw him give a show on Boston Common that damn near melted the golden dome atop the State House. Of course, his place in the pantheon had been sealed by “What’s Goin’ On?”, the 1971 masterpiece that Berry Gordy originally didn’t want to release.
I was with a friend this weekend, and she said that if 45 were serious about presiding, during all these investigations, he and his GOP cohorts would have come up with a BI-PARTISAN healthcare PLAN and BAM! pulled it out during the Barr 4 -page fuckery debacle.
Well, they don’t understand healthcare very well and the best they can do is pull something out of their asses.
Folks see it a mile away

Let’s discuss the campaign 😒😒
UGH, THIS UNKEMPT MOFO!
FFS, this is too much.

Stacey Abrams on “Identity Politics” is so, so good. She is so brilliant and has an ability to explain concepts to folks in a way I hope they can understand. Please take 30 seconds here and know this. It will help you in the primary as we weed though folks who do not understand. https://t.co/ppovkBo4q7

Rikyrah, I was re-watching the DVD of Frank’s Place this weekend. Remember this episode?
I do. Talk about a show ahead of its time. CBS never knew what to do with it. It was far too smart for Black comedy.
Tell it, Stacey.
More from @staceyabrams on @TheView: “I’m not a socialist. And I like capitalism. I think markets need to be regulated…avarice tends to win….I grew up poor, and I don’t ever want to do that again.”

House Intel yet to be briefed on counterintel side of Trump probe
Rep. Adam Schiff, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, talks with Rachel Maddow about whether Congress or the public will learn about the results of the counterintelligence investigation into Donald Trump.
Schiff: Barr memo claim on need for obstruction decision ‘flimsy’
Rep. Adam Schiff, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, talks with Rachel Maddow about Attorney General William Barr going beyond what the Special Counsel regulations call for by imposing himself on the release of Robert Mueller’s report.
Barr improvises role on Mueller report despite clear regulations
Rachel Maddow looks at the past week of behavior toward the Robert Mueller report by Donald Trump’s new attorney general, William Barr, and contrasts it with what the Special Counsel regulations actually ask him to do.
Oh look! Bernie Sanders has his hand on her shoulder. According to her own words, he’s invading her personal space, right? This lying bitttttch!
She has athe face of a liar to me.
It’s Hard Enough For Student Sexual Assault Survivors. Missouri Lawmakers Are Trying to Make it Even Worse.
A bill under consideration would even allow some accused students to sue their victims.
APRIL 1, 2019 6:00 AM
College students deciding whether or not to report sexual assault or harassment to their university already face a slew of barriers. There’s the shame, embarrassment, and fear of going through an emotionally difficult misconduct process. There’s the panic that even if they report, nothing will be done. And, as a landmark 2015 campus sexual assault survey found, there’s the pervasive belief that most incidents aren’t “serious enough” to report—even if they involve forcible penetration.
Now, lawmakers in Missouri are advancing a pair of bills that critics say would make reporting campus sexual misconduct even more difficult, allowing colleges to raise the bar for victims to prove their cases and providing powerful disincentives to speak up about sexual violence.
She is someone’s useful idiot, to be sure.
I’m just not in the mood for this nonsense.

Anyone who talks to voters or listens to candidates knows both are false. 2020 landscape hasn’t changed much because Mueller wrapped. https://twitter.com/TheStagmania/status/1110350050935427072?s=17
