NAACP Urges Athletes Not to Sign in Texas

My rights in Texas are not protected. Neither are yours. Neither would these free agency athletes’ rights be, which is why I fully agree with the NAACP. I no longer have the right to my reproductive health. My voting rights have been slashed. And I no longer have the right to not get COVID, because, quite honestly, it has more reproductive rights than I do. Transgender kids have also been targeted.

I could leave. I could move to a bluer state. Maybe a sane person would. But I won’t. I can’t fix the problems here in Texas if I’m not here to vote in Texas. I’m going to fight for the state I love, for my home. I’ll vote, I’ll march, hell, I’ll run for office if it comes down to it. But I’m not leaving. I’m fighting.

So one day I can say, “Free agent athletes of the NAACP, come to Texas. You’ll love it here.”

Right Wing Social Media

Parler. Telegram. Gab. Gettr. 8Chan. And now Trump’s new Truth Social, due out in 2022. So what do these have in common? They’re right-wing social media apps, spewing with hate speech, misinformation, and more.  Not only do right-wing users still use Twitter (and get incensed when the terms of service are rightfully used against them),… Continue reading Right Wing Social Media

Critical Race Theory

Critical Race Theory

The Republican Party has an unbelievable talent for fear-mongering and finding the boogeyman in any conceivable scenario. No other group on the planet is so skilled at this that they pull out the same old myths every so often, and people still continue to believe what the GOP tells them. For example, each year, Fox News narrates the story of the “War on Christmas” that has never actually happened. And while they never actually have any proof of it, they report on it annually.

Poverty Treadmill

By Guest Writer Adam Kapusin I grew up in the Central Florida town of Leesburg. It wasn’t a large town, but we did have a Walmart AND a Target. My family was working class and made enough to get by and provide me with what I needed. My house was a double-wide mobile home that… Continue reading Poverty Treadmill
