Samuel L. Jackson is calling out fellow celebrities who took the ‘ice bucket challenge’ earlier this year to help make another cause go viral.

The Pulp Fiction and Django Unchained star posted a video to his Facebook page Saturday, asking his peers to post videos of themselves singing the “We Ain’t Gonna Stop Till People are Free” song, a reference to the ongoing “Black Lives Matter” protests across the nation.

“All you celebrities out there who poured ice water on your head, here’s a chance to do something else,” he tells viewers.

The lyrics begin:

3 Black Churches in Florida Vandalized With KKK Graffiti

http://www.theroot.com/articles/culture/2014/12/_3_black_churches_in_florida_vandalized_with_kkk_graffiti.html



The FBI is investigating hate crimes in a rural Florida county where three predominately black churches were recently defaced with racist graffiti scrawl, according to International Business Times, which cites a report at the Tallahassee Democrat.

The latest case was discovered Wednesday when members of Mount Olive Primitive Baptist Church in Crawfordville in Wakulla County when members arrived for choir practice to find "KKK" spray-painted on the side of their church, the Democrat reports.

"The whole community is in shock right now that we still have these things occurring," Wakulla County NAACP Organizing Committee President Anginita Rosier told the paper.

The first case was discovered last Sunday when members discovered signs for the New Bridge Hope Missionary Baptist Church in Crawfordville was spray-painted with “KKK,” the report says. A second church, Pilgrim Rest P.B. Church, was also vandalized.

Studio 54 back in the day (1977-1980?), ever go there ?

I've always read how "legendary" it was, people having sex on the dance floor, etc etc

Truth ? Urban legends ?

********BARACK OBAMA GROUP****** sigh

THIS IS THE BOG, IT IS A SAFE HAVEN GROUP CREATED BY THE ADMINISTRATORS OF DU. IT IS A PLACE FOR THOSE WHO SUPPORT DEMOCRATS TO CELEBRATE THE 44TH POTUS, BARACK OBAMA, ALONG WITH HIS FAMILY, ACHIEVEMENTS AND POLICIES.

IT EXISTS FOR THOSE WHO SUPPORT THIS PRESIDENT AND EACH OTHER. PLEASE CHECK THE PINNED THREAD FOR THE SOP (STATEMENT OF PURPOSE) OF THIS GROUP. THIS IS NOT A FORUM.

IF YOU CANNOT RESPECT OBAMA, DEMOCRATS, THE SPIRIT AND INTENT OF THIS GROUP, OR THE MEMBERS OF THIS GROUP, PLEASE DO NOT POST HERE.

THANKS IN ADVANCE


I really get tired of the non-stop threads bashing President Obama and the Democratic Party. If people channeled all their keyboard anger into real activism, maybe the country would be a better place.

The threads make me want to run from DU, to a place solidly anchored in reality. Some people here won't be happy until Vladimir Lenin comes back from the dead and assumes the presidency.

I'm not leaving DU and allowing the trolls and the hopelessly naive/ignorant to win.

He can't be an FDR, yet....

Why you ask ?

Do we have 25% OFFICIAL-on-the-books unemployment ? Yea yea, I know about the unofficial rates, but those never get headlines or attention. Do we have long breadlines in the cities ? Do we have very similar economic conditions to March 1933 ?

Does he have an overwhelmingly Democratic Senate and House of Representatives to work with ?

Does he have an overwhelming public revulsion for trickle-down-economics and failed economic policy ?

If you think FDR was a REAL socialist or communist or that he was going to shut down or nationalize all banks, and put the investment bankers (like Goldman) out of business, you're living in fantasyland and you don't know history.

FDR was FDR because of the truly desperate times he was operating in. EVEN BACK THEN, THE LEFT DID NOT LIKE FDR.

I hate fucking threads like this. TRASH THREAD.

11-Year-Old Arkansas Girl Hails Cab ... to Florida

http://abcnews.go.com/Weird/wireStory/11-year-arkansas-girl-hails-cab-florida-27554497

BRYANT, Ark. — Dec 12, 2014, 2:39 PM ET
Associated Press

An 11-year-old Arkansas girl paid a cabbie $1,300 to take her to meet a boy in Florida, but authorities caught up with the runaway in Georgia, and found her safe, after her parents reported her missing.

Bryant police used cellphone records to determine the girl hailed the cab in Little Rock Dec. 5 after talking to a 16-year-old Jacksonville, Florida, boy she met two years ago, the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reported Friday ( http://bit.ly/12VJ4Qv ).

"According to the information that I have, she was in a sweatsuit with a lot of makeup on and she looked like she was 17 or 18 years old," said Ellis Houston, a managing partner with Greater Little Rock Transportation Services, which operates the local Yellow Cab service.

The driver was not charged and is not facing disciplinary action, Houston said.

Some gentle rain for California, good.....
