RIP Chiyonofuji

Sad news today. Yokozuna Chiyonofuji pessed today from cancer of the pancreas. He was 61 years old.

The greatest Rikishii of the 20th century and the reason that thousands of Americans stationed in Japan became fans of Sumo.

I believe that the Democrats will win this November

I also believe that if the narrative becomes "we won in spite of, not because of Senator Sanders' supporters" it will just empower the Wasserman-Schultz wing. The young folks joining us will be ignored.

I'm an old Democrat. A Hillary supporter, but that is an outcome we should all try to prevent.

Losing young voters and prolonging the dissension would be a tragedy.

But the real tragedy would be if Putin and the Koch brothers get us so fucked around that Trump wins

Peace

An awful lot of white people, men especially

Are trying to find a way to paint themselves as victims.

Any person hating another for no reason beyond race is bigotry, not racism. Racism, to even be considered an "ISM" must include an imbalance of power. If there is no lasting real world effect from the hostility, it is just an individual being an asshole.

If it's backed up by an imbalanced access to remediation - Say if the courts or the banking system routinely favored one side over the other, then it's racism or sexism or another "ISM"

A minority may feel hostility towards others unlike them, but if they don't have access to established power to back up their dislike, it's bigotry not racism.

Until there is a minority banking, real estate, justice system, zoning commission etc etc that white people have to submit to - it's all just weak-ass, whiny pissing and moaning.

By racists.

The best part of the Blues Blast awards voting is

The "Be an Informed Voter" link

https://soundcloud.com/bluesblast/sets/

A couple of songs from each nominated artist. Full tracks not 30 second samples!

Spend a couple hours, find a new favorite or check out what the old heads are up to.

Edit - I guess the link to the actual ballot would be nice to have:

The cell phone has put millions of video cameras out around the U.S.

And we have no vids of angels, bigfoots or ghosts.

We do have dozens of vids of racist murderous cops though.

And the average white guy is more likely to believe in angels, ghosts and bigfoots than that racism is an issue.

I don't even know what to say...

Peace
