This StoryCorps animated film tells the story of Alex Landau, an African American man, raised by white parents in Denver, Colorado. He was pulled over and severly beaten by police in 2009. Thank God he lives to tell the story.

NYC: Cappuccino and Stomp

Share |

Love that New York City Graffiti!

Nothing like Cappuccino at a NYC diner

These performers broght the house down with lots of rhythm
and stomping all over the theater.

It's all about the Benjamins, baby.

GOP on Charleston: "Accident and Indiscriminate"

Share |

Sometimes it's just as plain as the nose on your face:

"It was reported that an anonymous bomb threat made to Morris Brown African Methodist Episcopal Church, where black and white congregants sang "We Shall Overcome," was made from a telephone in the Charleston County Jail." (where Charleston shooter Dylann Roof and Michael Slager,  the former police officer accused of killing Walter Scott are held).

"Former Texas governor Rick Perry called the massacre an "accident," then later said he meant "incident"; former Pennsylvania senator Rick Santorum said Roof chose his victims "indiscriminately"; former Florida governor Jeb Bush said he didn't know whether Roof was motivated by racism; and Roof, who wore the flags of Rhodesia and apartheid-era South Africa on his coat and had a Confederate-flag license plate on his car, told investigators he wanted to start a race war."   -- Harper's Weekly
