This is not a drill. ~ “the best endorsement I can give you is that I am very careful about what I put inside myself” ~ @Phil_Johnson_ If you can watch THE MOST ostentatious greedmonger on charismatic TV—a demonstrably false teacher who fits every detail of Jude 4-16 & 2 Peter 2—and nevertheless embrace him as a brother in Christ, you are woefully lacking in any kind of discernment. ~ The sign will be Billy Graham’s death– Benny Hinn ~ “A Babe in the Woods?”: Billy Graham, Anticommunism, and Vietnam ~ Things We Saw Today: The Alt-Right Loves Black Panther so Much They Want to Make It About Trump ~ Nolte: Pro-Trump ‘Black Panther’ Breaks Box Office Records without Breaking New Ground | Breitbart ~ 2 Timothy 3 ~ @nneomaanene So some white lady at the @Target in Roswell, Ga just told my mother to go back to her country for speaking another language on the phone!

Also, the arrest was in 1947, after she had been performing “Strange Fruit” for a number of years. While I have no doubt that Harry Anslinger was a gnarly piece of work, I think this article exaggerates his influence. (I should note that the same article says that Judy Garland was a heroin addict. While she certainly had a substance problem, I have never heard that it includes heroin. Google was no help with this one.) ~ The Strange Story Of The Man Behind ‘Strange Fruit’ The story of Abel Meerpol is worth telling as well. He later adopted the children of Julius and Ethel Rosenberg. Also, the lynching that “Strange Fruit” was inspired by took place in Indiana. ~ Strange Fruit: the first great protest song ~ The Hunting of Billie Holiday ~ Billie Holiday Biography(1915–1959) ~ An ill-waged war against the war on drugs ~ Singer Billie Holiday was tormented by anti-drug squad ~ The Hunting of Billie Holiday & the Roots of the U.S. War on Drugs ~ Billie Holiday: The Tragic Life of Lady Day ~ #18: Strange Fruit – Voices of a Lynching Poet and songwriter Abel Meeropol wrote that lament after seeing a photograph of two black teenagers hanging from a tree. Strange Fruit was later made famous by Billie Holiday. But a third boy escaped being lynched that fateful day, 80 years ago, in Marion, Indiana. James Cameron was believed to be the only African American to have survived a lynching. ~ Billie and Lester against the world ~ Tallulah Bankhead And Billie Holiday ~ Negro & White Women, United, Travel to Petition Governor Talmadge to Free Mrs. Rosa Lee Ingram, Victim of Oppression ~ The Secret Auden ~ Johann Hari: ‘I failed badly.

The message was always the same. Another icon of my childhood is gone. ~ Is creating a meme the facebook version of thoughts and prayers? ~ People ~ who like to be seen denouncing racism love to hate the kkk. Nothing you say about the bedsheet boys is out of bounds. The truth is that the kkk has as much influence, and respect, as the bad guys in professional wrestling. The kkk is a fashion challenged version of the westboro baptist church. You have to wonder why people get so much enjoyment from trash talking the klan. Maybe this is a distraction for their own unresolved racial conflicts. ~ A couple of months ago, a miracle happened. The ac adapter to some computer speakers wore out. The ac adapter to a formerly router fit the computer speakers. This will never happen again in my lifetime. ~ “What causes such a leap in logic?” Facebook ~ Howard C. Stevenson 5:06 If you look at the neuroscience research which says that when we are racially threatened, our brains go on lockdown, and we dehumanize black and brown people. 11:46 JS: And think that you’re, “You don’t look — you don’t look like you’re …” It’s like they’re saying that “You don’t look right, so I guess I have the right to disrespect you.” … HS: Yeah, and that’s what we call, we call that racism. 1232 HS: Yes, Julian, Daddy meant white people when I said, “other people,” all right? ~ this is the poem from last night at java monkey:
these are the #signsofaneighborfromhell ~ dog tries to kill one more chicken
brimstone barbeque with a gnarly smell ~ cooked on a charcoal grill in the kitchen
sacrifice of goats while you are sleeping ~ has a personal relationship with jesus
horns on the head pointy tail squeaking ~ talking in tongues about his penis
she knocks to ask you for a cup of meth ~ grumpy postal worker with bad breath
big hair honey smokes marlboro butts ~ all the little boys have mullet haircuts
she lights the garden grill with her finger ~ fat children ask if are you a swinger
