Dunkin Donuts stopped selling my favorite chai latte and I found this great substitute

Vanilla chai recipe

* 1 Cup instant tea powder unsweetened (1 1/2 – 2 cups if you like a stronger tea)
* 1 Cup nondairy powder creamer
* 1 Cup french vanilla flavored creamer
* 1 Cup dry milk
* 2 Cups sugar (or artificial sweetener such as splenda)
* 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
* 1 teaspoon ground cloves
* 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
* 1 teaspoon allspice
* 1 teaspoon ground ginger
* 1 teaspoon cardamom
* Whipped cream for garnish (optional)

In a large mixing bowl, combine all of the dry ingredients. Mix well with a whisk.
Blend in small batches (1 to 2 cups at a time) in your blender until the mix becomes a fine powder. Pour into an airtight container to store.

To serve: 
To a mug of very hot water, add 2 – 3 Tablespoons of Homemade Vanilla Chai Mix. Stir until all ingredients have dissolved. Top with a generous dollop of whipped cream if desired.

For a creamier cup of vanilla chai, make it with milk instead of water! Mmmm good!

Black men have suffered the most in America.


They were buck broken, hung, dismembered, beaten — emasculated, made to watch their women be raped and bear their oppressors’ children.

They have been robbed of their dignity and then looked at in disdain for being undignified.

They’ve been in chains and now behind bars more than any group in history.

America hates blacks — especially black men.

Made my day 😊

For the anti-link clickers: President Biden and FLOTUS visited a DC restaurant to cheers and applause.

The View: McCain doubts TFG** is eyeing another presidential run

In the wake of newz that TFG (the former guy) may be headed for indictment in the case against him and his organization, Megan McCain, thinks it’s unlikely to have much of an impact on his political future.

“I actually think he won’t end up running. I think he wants to see a lot of things that are happening in the world that he said would come true with Biden’s policies,” McCain said. “Everything that I’ve heard through different channels is that he’s actually pretty happy right now and feeling good about his legacy.”

Typical Republican doublespeak: no impact on his political future but he’s not likely to run.

Yeah right. I’m sure he’s “happy” as can be.

Chicago mayor only grants one-on-one interviews to POC on 2-year anniversary

https://abc7chicago.com/chicago-mayor-lori-lightfoot-black-reporters-brown/10663890/

In a two-page letter to members of the media, she wrote: "It is impossible for this glaring lack of diversity not to be reflected in the daily coverage of government, politics and city life every single day."

"She makes a really great case about diversity and the lack of diversity, but she doesn't make the case about what's wrong with the way she's being covered," ABC7 Political Analyst Laura Washington said. "What she says implies that she's being covered unfairly, there's implicitly or explicitly bias, but she never makes the case for how that plays out in the media."

Northwestern University Journalism Professor Ava Greenwell has written a book about the diversity issues in newsrooms, which go back decades. She supports the mayor's desire to draw attention to the issue. “When we're looking at the Black Lives Matter movement and inequity and all these other places, the news media has no choice but also to look at itself in this situation and see if it doing the best job it can to actually fostering equity across the board," Greenwell said.

Snip—

The President of the Chicago Chapter of the National Association of Black Journalists sees the letter as no big deal, because diversity in newsrooms is something they've been fighting for years.

Obama is doing the entire Late Show w/James Corden promoting his new book.

He’s simply spectacular—witty, intelligent and charming.

He’s fielding questions from band members. One asked for his advice as a new father. Obama‘s reply was to give the newborn a regular schedule as it just makes for much happier children; and to treat the mother well to set an example for the future.

Love him.

A video of people admitting their racism

No solutions. It’s ugly but acknowledgment is a beginning...maybe.
