    Watching the 1500 m freestyle.
    Got another one of those folks.
    He is not as deep as Ledecky.
    But, Finke came in and the rest of the field couldn’t be seen.
    I will say it again…
    Can’t see anyone else AT THE OLYMPIC TRIALS 😳😳😳

    Sing a song full of the faith that the dark past has taught us
    Sing a song full of the hope that the present has brought us
    Facing the rising sun of our new day begun
    Let us march on till victory is won…

    In the rural South, sharecropping was typically practiced by former slaves.

    After slavery was abolished, white landowners would still make Black families stay on their land to care for the crops, paid them poorly, and charged them. #Juneteenth https://t.co/FVjGqktwv9

    COMING UP: There are two major civil rights initiatives pending in Congress that have stalled although Congress passed a bipartisan bill to make #Juneteenth a holiday. This week we want action on voting rights bills and on the #GeorgeFloyd Justice in Policing Act.

    My mom recently told me that the first year Juneteenth became a holiday in Texas, the white medical staffers all took off to force their Black counterparts to work that day. That vileness still permeates Texas/nationwide & that’s so depressing, but she also said celebrate anyway.

    Stacey Abrams on voting rights: “When my name is attached, they have visions of Georgia and the change in election outcomes. The reality is, we’re not guaranteed victory every cycle, but we should all be guaranteed access and guaranteed opportunity.”
