A documentary on the Loving vs Virginia case. It’s really interesting to listen to oral arguments from this case in the context of this week’s SCOTUS hearings on Prop 8 and DOMA.
I appreciated this for the storytelling as much as for the point.
Just because you used to love something, does not mean that you are obligated to keep doing it long after you stop loving it. In fact, you are likely doing that something a disservice by not pouring your all into it.
This is exactly why I stopped doing fresh.mn and cinna.mn. It took me a looooong time to get there, though. At the time I attributed it to burnout. Looking back now, I can see that it was a little deeper than that.

From Ed, who has done such a thing. It’s actually pretty straightforward. Just routing, as opposed to making a custom map.
One of the most powerful testimonies in today’s Minnesota House Civil Law Committee hearing. Former GOP Rep Lynne Osterman on her regret over the “politically expedient” vote she cast in favor of MN’s DOMA.
By far the craziest testimony in today’s Minnesota House Civil Law committee hearing on the marriage equality bill. It’s graphic, it’s fearmongering, it’s wholly inaccurate, and it’s squarely based in the 1980s.
From today’s Minnesota House Civil Law Committee hearing on the marriage equality bill.
I’m all for kids being interested in the political process, but this kid? Her father is a pastor in a church that opposes marriage equality. Her statement… reflected a lot of unfounded and uninformed fears that adults have.
This is a news site and media watchdog for black moderates and conservatives, regardless of party affiliation. It’s particularly geared to those ages 50 and under, the post-Civil Rights Movement generations.
Booker Rising was begun to counteract negativity, victimology, and defeatism, which is too often thrust upon black Americans by schools, the media, and so-called leaders. We’re concerned about eroded values, hopes, and dreams, even though overall we’re living better than ever. Booker Rising wants to help stop the sacrilegious assault of our grandparents’ (and ancestors’) legacy, as if little to no progress has been made and the civil rights movement was almost for naught.
Inspired by Booker T. Washington’s work, this website will promote self-help, education, enterprise, democracy, and society as the seeds for Black America’s future. We won the civil rights movement. It’s now time for Stage II: further propelling black American success in this increasingly globalized era, via our “seeds.”
Perhaps coincidentally, they talk about Cory Booker a lot.
