‘We’re still fighting that same fight’: how Spike Lee got his groove back with BlacKkKlansman | Film | The Guardian
You’re still fighting that same fight.” Charlottesville, he says, was “unfortunately, like a confirmation” of what their script was already warning of. As soon as he saw events there unfold, Lee wanted the footage to end the film.

Tweet from Madeleine Burleson
So, @Glinner is now saying that people who are #bisexual and in a relationship with a person of the opposite sex, referring to yourself as #queer is appropriation. Thank God we have this white cis het male, Graham Linehan, policing #gender and #sexuality!

Screenshot: @faintlyfalling: She seems to say she's 5 on a scale of "1 to rainbnow" so forgive my cynicism. The wider point is that a man and a woman aren't a "queer couple" even if one (or both) are bi. It's tone-deaf to the struggles o f gay people who are still fighting for acceptance and rights.

Reply from @Glinner: THANK you. I was trying to find that link [to an article about Nico Torotorella and his wife]. It is appropriation and it would be called out if it was any other minority. It's a land grab

For black women, cutting your hair off is political - as I and the star of a new Netflix drama well know | Fashion | The Guardian
The gravity of a black woman deciding to cut her hair off and go “natural” in a white supremacist society (yes, ours) should not be underestimated. Almost every black hairdresser I visited before finally plucking up the courage to cut my hair off told me I was making the wrong decision, but it was a reminder of how deeply entrenched these views are.
This isn’t just about looks: our wider history is stained by instances such as the apartheid-era pencil test in South Africa – those who could hold a pencil in their hair without it falling out could not be classified as white. To this day, black women and girls lose job offers and are sent to detention or are suspended because our hairstyles don’t suit white sensibilities.

Hating Whites Online: Sarah Jeong’s Tweets and Anti-White Racism - Areo
I am more interested in the wider implications of the double standards that allow so many to condemn racism against people of color and defend it, when directed at white people.

'I Will Call The AG': Trump Officials Pushed For Census Citizenship Question : NPR
These internal emails and a June memo released by Ross contradict the sequence of events that Ross has shared with lawmakers.

Ross has testified in Congress that the Justice Department "initiated" the request for the question in December 2017. The department says it needs responses to the question to better enforce the Voting Rights Act's provisions against racial discrimination.

God, Trump and the meaning of morality - The Washington Post
Love thy neighbor, she said, meant “love thy American neighbor.”

Welcome the stranger, she said, meant the “legal immigrant stranger.”

“The Bible says, ‘If you do this to the least of these, you do it to me,’ ” Sheila said, quoting Jesus. “But the least of these are Americans, not the ones crossing the border.”
