    Went to see a Brian McKnight Concert last night courtesy of the same son that took me to the Michelle Obama Becoming talk at the LA Forum in November. I feel blessed.

    a beautiful memory! Miss them so much

    Only very old folks remember Eisenhower (no offense 🙂 ). All presidents after that: Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan, Bush-41, Clinton, Bush-43 and President Barack Obama.. Kennedy was gone so fast and 43 was illegitimate and criminally incompetent. We can say they are outliers, granted not for the same reasons. PBO is CLEARLY the Greatest President in Our Lifetimes. It’s not even close.

      Yes! And keep in mind even Dwight Eisenhower’s granddaughter, Susan, backed Barack Obama for President, early on:

      Why I’m Backing Obama
      By Susan Eisenhower
      Saturday, February 2, 2008

      ” … It is in this great tradition of crossover voters that I support Barack Obama’s candidacy for president. If the Democratic Party chooses Obama as its candidate, this lifelong Republican will work to get him elected and encourage him to seek strategic solutions to meet America’s greatest challenges. To be successful, our president will need bipartisan help … Given Obama’s support among young people, I believe that he will be most invested in defending the interests of these rising generations and, therefore, the long-term interests of this nation as a whole. Without his leadership, our children and grandchildren are at risk of growing older in a marginalized country that is left to its anger and divisions. Such an outcome would be an unacceptable legacy for any great nation.”

    Nathan Phillips, Omaha elder, veteran, former Director of Native Youth Alliance, keeper of the sacred pipe who every year honors Americans at Arlington National Cemetery:
    “I heard them saying ‘build that wall, build that wall”. This is indigenous land, you’re not supposed to have walls here. We never did for a millennia. We never had a prison; we always took care of our elders, took care of our children, always provided for them, taught them right from wrong. I wish I could see that energy … put that energy to making this country really, really great.”

      how does one “delicately” alert him that he needs to update his LinkedIn profile to include his new position and current employer?

      he has the link to his LinkedIn profile in his Twitter bio but it does not say anything about Senator Harris ….. I did not want to put him on blast by adding this in the comments in this announcement because people are ready to pick out any shortcoming

      I’m here for all of it: Kamala, Kristen, and even Elizabeth. Not mad at Juan (or is it Julian; see the problem?) Castro either, but my heart is with the women and even more so with Kamala, the badass former prosecutor. Putin was afraid of Hillary, but he will be terrified of KH. What we will need to watch out for is that tired, misogynistic argument that is already going around that we need to front a white male to win. Time is rapidly running out for the and they will do everything they can to stay in power. I can see republican and democratic men joining forces to get in our way. Jon Favreau spoke eloquently once about ignoring the electability argument that some put out (especially by those who have something to gain from it). Just vote for the candidate that touches your values etc. the one that you feel good about voting for and let the rest take care of itself. I also believe that the women will not follow a scorched earth policy during the primary which will be a relief to see.

      OMG, this is making me cry. What she is doing is even more important than the example of Misty Copeland. Over 50 years ago, I was one of those little girls who longed to dance, but whose only connection to ballet was the books I checked out (practiced positions holding onto the porch railings and window casings until a neighbor had something to say about it) and the PBS specials. What this dancer is doing is, and will be, impactful in so many ways. Thanks for sharing this.

    Like I’ve said many times to whomever would listen, it is important to some people that the right person saves them. And with Kamala Harris running for President, that theory will be put to the test.

    Important Read

    This selective history was cemented in the establishment of Martin Luther King Jr. Day by President Ronald Reagan in 1983. Reagan—it should go without saying—was about as far from King on the ideological spectrum as a politician could get; he worked to erect a new set of boundaries around urban blackness, which Baldwin had foreseen decades earlier. Reagan had bought into the whitewashed version of King, an image rehabilitated for white consumption and black mollification. In his speech announcing the holiday, Reagan mentioned King’s support for “color-blind” justice, and quoted that most quoted portion of the “I Have a Dream” speech.

    But Reagan did not mention the remarks he had made as the governor of California on the day of King’s funeral, when he had spoken of “a great tragedy that began when we began compromising with law and order and people started choosing which laws they’d break”—in effect, blaming King’s own campaign of civil disobedience for his assassination. Nor did Reagan mention that a majority of whites had felt the same way and that many of them had hated King. No mention, either, of the last three years of King’s life, other than his death.

      There was a time in my youth when I’d spend many days at the library trying to read every piece of literature that dealt with the black man and his place in the world. I’d read everything from wall street to religion, I’d read J.A. Rogers, he was my favorite. That was decades ago and I’ve forgotten most of the stuff I’ve read. But it will always come back to me when a certain situation presented itself.
