Before we bash the rural south. Here are some real people not on instagram.






These are Americans in great need. These are our community. Sometimes things are more important than politics or regional biases.


I am no better or worse than these people. I am these people. I am just luckier today.

Death rates for children in certain ethnic minorities are over 3 times that of white children

Children face racial disparities as COVID-19 infections rise


Children of color are more likely than white children to be infected, hospitalized and die from the coronavirus, according to the Kaiser analysis. They may also be less likely to be vaccinated, leaving them particularly vulnerable.


For American Indian/Alaska Native children, the death rates were over 3 times that of white children and, for Black children, the death rates were over 2.5 times higher than their white counterparts.


“These data are not at all unsurprising,” said Jason Salemi, an epidemiologist with the University of South Florida, in an email to the Times. “I hope we are not still so desensitized to certain subgroups in our population bearing the disproportionate brunt of many adverse health outcomes that it isn’t an urgent call to action.”

Three shot as family fight over gifts at Pa. baby shower

Three people were shot Saturday during a baby shower in Pennsylvania after a fight about gifts, police said.

Police in Lower Burrell, a small city 30 minutes northeast of Pittsburgh, responded to a call reporting an active shooting at the Kinloch Fire Department just after 6 p.m. Saturday.

Authorities discovered that it was “not an active shooter situation but rather an isolated family incident during a baby shower,” city police said on Facebook.

I almost feel we need a Herman Cain like Gif for these fools, but of course the gunman is unharmed.

BLM plans Carmines protest after three African American woman are profiled by Asian Hostess.

https://www.nytimes.com/2021/09/18/nyregion/carmines-vaccination-fight.html

Justin Moore, a lawyer who represents one of the women, Kaeita Nkeenge Rankin, said that the hostess used a racial slur and spoke condescendingly to the patrons, suggesting that their vaccination cards were fake. He also said the Texas women claim that the hostess assaulted them.


“The hostess begins spouting out derogatory comments, and speaking with two of the women; they claim that the N-word is being spewed out” Mr. Moore said in an interview. “They also heard the hostess say, ‘Yeah, you guys can leave my restaurant,’ or something very aggressive like that. When Dr. Rankin hears that, she turns around and addresses the hostess. She tells her: ‘This isn’t your restaurant. You’re just a staff member here. Please address us with respect.’”


Amid the dueling accounts, a Black Lives Matter activist said his group planned to demonstrate outside Carmine’s on Monday to protest the treatment of Black patrons. “Restaurants are using vaccine mandates to enforce their racist beliefs and excluding Black patrons,” said Hawk Newsome, the co-founder and chairman of Black Lives Matter Greater New York.

Alcoholics are put at the bottom of the list for liver transplants

Why are not anti-vaxxers at the bottom of the list for oxygen?

I am not against palliative care but at this point they are a hazard to the general health and welfare of outr nation and need to be treated as such.

The $1,190 sweatpants have caused a stir on social media, with many critics labeling the design as a form of gentrification

Between lofty prices and notoriously unorthodox designs, Balenciaga garments have raised many an eyebrow in the past — at times for adverse reasons. Now, critics are calling an item from its recent collection “racist.”

Among the U.K. fashion brand’s latest looks for the Fall/Winter 2021 season are sweatpants designed with an exposed boxer short built-in above the waistband, which some have deemed to be an appropriation of the “sagging” pant style popularized in the 90s by Black people.

Naked woman drove golf cart through armed standoff in Dunedin, deputy says

https://www.wfla.com/news/pinellas-county/naked-woman-drove-golf-cart-through-armed-standoff-in-dunedin-deputy-says/

DUNEDIN, Fla. (WFLA) — Deputies in Pinellas County had plenty on their hands Sunday morning while they tried to diffuse a standoff with an armed teenager on a rooftop.

According to an arrest affidavit, a naked woman who had nothing to do with the situation made things even harder when she decided to drive a golf cart into the crime scene in Dunedin.

In All Fairness she was a Boston Coed so more of a temporary Florida Man status.
