Tales of the City on Twitter: "We heard and saw you talking about *that* dinner scene and wanted to share it with you in its entirety." / Twitter
While, the older white gay men at the dinner table survived one of the most horrific times in queer history, those experiences do not excuse transphobia and racism. We want to hear what you think...

Privileged | By Kyle Korver
And I believe it’s the responsibility of anyone on the privileged end of those inequalities to help make things right.

So if you don’t want to know anything about me, outside of basketball, then listen — I get it. But if you do want to know something? Know I believe that.

Know that about me.

If you’re wearing my jersey at a game? Know that about me. If you’re planning to buy my jersey for someone else…… know that about me. If you’re following me on social media….. know that about me. If you’re coming to Jazz games and rooting for me….. know that about me.

And if you’re claiming my name, or likeness, for your own cause, in any way….. know that about me. Know that I believe this matters.

Erynn Brook on Twitter: "Let’s talk about Russia, because I think there’s a real cultural difference in how we in the West understand surveillance and what’s actually happening with Russian efforts so we have a hard time believing the depth of what
We tend to think of digital surveillance in the West from a capitalist perspective: “oh google just wants to know what kind of shoes I like so it can show me ads for shoes”

That’s not what this is about. That’s not the ideology this kind of surveillance is built on.

And there it is: Black Lives Matter at March for our lives
1/ What they will not do is ignore black voices.

2/ What they will make sure to do is include our agenda in the agenda gun prevention reform. Legislative issues and solutions for gun violence, it has to include the intersections of black violence: guns, gangs, schools, teachers, police brutality, state violence. This is not just about white people in school shootings in the classroom.

3/ Make sure we have a great time.

How Colin Kaepernick statistically compares to all NFL quarterbacks - Washington Post
Here's how the 2016 performance of the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback compares to the league’s signal callers so far this season, using a stat called adjusted net yards per attempt. We’re looking at QBs that qualify for passing leaderboards, meaning they’re averaging 14 pass attempts for each game their team has played (on pace for 224 attempts on the season).
Among qualified quarterbacks, 13 are worse than Kaepernick, 5 are about the same (plus or minus 0.35 ANY/A) and 14 are better.

ANY/A is a tweak on yards per attempt that gives QBs credit for throwing touchdowns and penalizes them for interceptions and sacks. It’s calculated as: (yards + 20 * TD - 45 * interceptions - sack yards) / (attempts + sacks).
Having a capable starter under center in the NFL is a requirement for success, and adjusted net yards per attempt is one of the best measurements available for QB passing performance. It correlates more closely with winning than either traditional passer rating or yards per attempt.
