    Smile

    Hi, guys.  Nice to see you.

    I was looking at my last letters to you, and after wondering why I waded there, I teared up. 

    The news is omnipresent, the battle seems impossible.

    But it is not.  Honestly, we can do this.

    Smile behind your mask.

    99% Of Covid Cases are mild...

    New data show a really disturbing set of sequelae after seemingly uneventful recoveries from "mild" cases of Covid 19.

     

    Ominously, they mirror what is a widely unrecognized part of the story of the 1918 Spanish Flu., which led to brain disease in over a million survivors.

     

    Serious and potentially fatal brain disorders triggered by coronavirus, as they emerge in mildly affected or recovering patients.

     

    Trumpism Is ‘Identity Politics’ for White People

    Adam Serwer retweeted his Oct. 2018 article today with that title and it definitely is worth a reminder right now:

    From, but it’s even more clear now that Trump has fumbled the response to the coronavirus, the economic crisis, and the george floyd protests, while running against statue vandalism. White identity politics is all Trumpism has ever had to offer. https://t.co/A4ZzsNbFVV

    Capitalizing Black As A Cultural Identifier

    The last time The New York Times made a sweeping call to capitalize how it referred to people of African ancestry was nearly a century ago.

    W.E.B. Du Bois had started a letter-writing campaign asking publications, including The Times, to capitalize the N in Negro, a term long since eradicated from The Times’s pages. “The use of a small letter for the name of twelve million Americans and two hundred million human beings,” he once wrote, was “a personal insult.”

    Karens

    I am intrigued by this brand new stereotypical enemy of the left, Karens. One month there's all these new heroines, the suburban woman centrist voters who helped give us a Democratic House of Representatives and are going to save us from Trump. And they are cis, and have kids and a husband, and are going #MeToo. The next month very similar women,  they are ridiculed if not totally despised. Got me thinking: is Hillary Clinton a Karen? Who else? Just ran across--this woman looks like another unfortunate Karen, worthless even as a token?

    You Want a Confederate Monument? My Body Is a Confederate Monument

    A black woman points out an obvious but overlooked view of Confederate monuments 

    The black people I come from were owned and raped by the white people I come from. Who dares to tell me to celebrate them?

    and

    NASHVILLE — I have rape-colored skin. My light-brown-blackness is a living testament to the rules, the practices, the causes of the Old South.

    If there are those who want to remember the legacy of the Confederacy, if they want monuments, well, then, my body is a monument. My skin is a monument.

    Lifting the stain from my soul...

    Juneteenth...

     

    Not just an African-American holiday of deliverance.

     

    Anyone who has celebrated a Passover knows the enduring power that attaches to the commemoration  of liberation for an oppressed people.

     

    Consider, for a moment, the liberation that also is felt by the oppressor's heirs.
