Open Thread | It Was NEVER About CRT. It’s About Silencing Those Who Teach the Truth

And those who believe that EVERYONE’S STORY that has been institutionally excluded


They want to WHITEWASH HISTORY and suppress the truth.

That’s what the entire anti-CRT hysteria is about.
Not about CRT, because CRT is only taught IN LAW SCHOOLS.

It’s about the TRUTH about this country, and not some sanitized version that enables certain White folks to live in a land of delusion.

Just pursing my lips as I read this story.

Just pissed me off.😠😠😠

    Who is Sandra Douglass Morgan? Meet the NFL’s first Black female president hired by Raiders

    Sandra Douglass Morgan made history on Thursday as the first Black woman to assume the role of president of an NFL team.

    The Raiders announced Morgan as the team’s new president via an internal letter (acquired by the Las Vegas Journal-Review’s Mick Akers) sent from Morgan to the rest of the organization. She replaces interim president Dan Ventrelle, who after resigning claimed he was fired in retaliation for reporting a hostile workplace environment to the NFL.


    Morgan’s name may be unfamiliar in NFL and football circles, but she is well-known in Nevada and Las Vegas, where she formerly served as the chairwoman Nevada Gaming Control Board from 2019 through 2021 — a role in which she also broke the gender and color barriers.

    Here’s everything you need to know about Morgan as she takes over as president of the Raiders:

    Who is Sandra Douglass Morgan?

    Morgan is a Las Vegas native with a wealth of experience traversing the gaming industry in Nevada and the Raiders’ new home city, making her an obvious candidate for the Raiders’ open president position.

    Per the Journal-Review, Morgan earned a bachelor of arts in political science from University of Nevada, Reno, before earning a juris doctor from UNLV’s Boyd Law School. She served in the following capacities prior to taking over as the Raiders’ team president:

    Litigation attorney, MGM Resorts International
    City attorney, North Las Vegas (2013-16)
    Director of external affairs, AT&T Services Inc. (2016-19)
    Chairwoman, Nevada Gaming Control Board (2019-21)

    Boris Johnson is resigning because members of his own party didn’t hide out for future book deals or leak their discontent to the press as anonymous sources.

    They spoke out loudly, resigned en masse, and demanded his resignation. That’s the political courage we are missing here.

    The only thing I hate about AOC is her attempts to sabotage and sandbag the party. All her other extracurricular stuff doesn’t bother me. It’s the fact she’s trying to force Bernie’s platform down the throat of a party that doesn’t want it. She’s just doing it in a subtle way.

    • Liza says:

      “…she’s trying to force Bernie’s platform down the throat of a party that doesn’t want it.”

      @groove_sdc What part of Bernie’s platform does the party not want? The Democrats ran on “Bernie’s platform” with the exception of Medicare4All because Joe said it could never get passed.

      When you make statements like that, show your work. Otherwise it sounds like you’re making stuff up which you are.

    I do not want a party where we replace Rep. Clyburn because he made the unpardonable sin of ending Bernie’s second failed presidential campaign. That’s what this fight is about it. Not some gerontocracy. But a purge of older Democrats they want to replace with young Berners.

    It’s not beneficial for them to win/take over. That would require work and would expose them as the nail painting, snack eating frauds they are. When they do take over and fail (and they will fail), they’ll blame Biden, Kamala, Hillary, Obama, black voters for why they failed:

    Gavin Newsom’s new TV ad slamming Ron DeSantis is best understood as an effort to fill a serious vacuum in the Democratic Party: The lack of leaders making a comprehensive case about right wing radicalization degrading our national life on so many fronts.
