.@YesYoureRacist & others are crowd-sourcing efforts to identify and shame people who took part in Charlottesville. n.pr/2fFkTlw

The ‘war on whites’ is a myth — and an ugly one wapo.st/2uHr5My?tid=ss…
Think it needs to be said: Railing against this Pres won't stop racism. We all have an obligation to do what is within our power.
Pretty sure the economy part of the speech was directed to those CEOs on his Council who have likely been dialing his digits.
Let's hope those words are followed by appropriate action.
Here in FL, Pres speech was followed by sonic boom from Space-X rocket re-entry. Funny and appropriate, I think. He said what he needed to.
Ken Frazier resigned because the President of the United States refused to condemn white supremacists. What are the rest of you waiting for? twitter.com/ddiamond/statu…

The Merck CEO resigned because Trump failed to denounce white supremacy. And this is how Trump responds. twitter.com/realDonaldTrum…

It's also important to reach those fostering hate on a local, personal level. There's no reasoning w/mob, but those ideas begin elsewhere.
And, the irony of attending/enjoying a party/event while hate congregates in a vacuum really puts the stupid in perspective.
Those supporting unity have the ability to pull together a media attracting event with little time/effort.
In that regard, why not display the strength of love over hate with music & events in areas nearby where hate gathers? Distracts attention.
Encouraging to see folks turn out for vigils promoting unity & the end of hate. It's important for those opposing to see we stand together.
Moses's do-over involved choosing other leaders worthy to follow him up the mountain, leaving those responsible for causing strife behind.
Now, back in his day, Moses had a tantrum & broke stuff when he saw the stupid. Not exactly productive. Thankfully, God gave him a do-over.
Last, but not least, leaders who fail to make it abundantly clear that stupidity is not an option.
Stupidity, is clearly at the top of the list. Next in line, the media, who constantly fail to recognize they fueled yesterday's fire.
Last, but not least, while the Pres was not as articulate as his predecessor, he was somewhat right yesterday. There are many to blame.
Not implying fault on their part, just hoping to save lives and find a way to make real progress with positive actions rather than strife.
What if those opposing stupid went somewhere else yesterday and did something otherwise noteworthy to distract media coverage of stupid?
So, here in 2017, we still have damn fools worshipping a false idol. Can't stop stupid, I guess, then perhaps we should ignore it.
At this juncture, I believe the wise words of another historical figure bear emphasis. Those well-known words: Stupid is as Stupid does.
What does matter? Human life. Our fellow Americans. Us. Anything that leads you to believe otherwise, is leading you astray.
It's a dang statue, y'all. A carved rendering of an earthly image. No one should care if it stands or falls. In the end, it means nothing.
And, here we are, all these milleniums later, with folks who profess to be Christians, still doing the same thing - worshipping it.
Back then, it was a shiny calf, today it's a rendering of a Civil War general, but ultimately, it's the same thing: a false idol.
Who can blame Moses, right? I mean literally chiseled in stone before him was item #2 on the list: Don't be worshipping false idols & such.
You see where I'm going with this, right? So, this pissed off God & Moses, who had just been given a specific To-Do/Not-Do list by God.
melting down gold and fashioning it into the form of a calf (or so the story goes). Then, b/c they were told not to, they worshipped it. 🙄
See, way back in the day, while Moses was out of town chatting w/God and such, his peeps went on a tear, doing stupid stuff, including...
Following yesterday's tragic events in Va, many folks turned to the 1st Amd for understanding. I find the 2nd Commandment more instructive.
This being Sunday and all, thought I might wax biblical for a moment. Seems we've not come all that far from those days, after all.
Maybe T is smarter than that. For our country's sake, I certainly hope he is.
Men, in general, and particularly older, white men refuse to accept insight from young, female attorneys, so client missed the boat.
And, with regard to T's admin and that case, there's less than 1 degree separation.
With re: to that last article, can't help but see similarities to what's been going on in T's admin and a case I worked on years ago...

Because, at this point, words alone are woefully inadequate.
Strongest statement Pres could make to denounce racism would be to distance himself from those in his inner circle who support/condone it.
Upside to AI, ignorant "nationalists" bested by something that has no color, race, religion, etc. finally realizing humans are all the same.
Still, we can't avoid going bravely into the future, and AI is a part of that. Just need to do so wisely, with foresight and restraint.
In terms of AI in the workplace, I can see numerous challenges ahead, including the immense challenge that will accompany mass job losses.
Inclined to agree, with the understanding regulation alone is insufficient. Consumers must be well educated on limits/dangers. twitter.com/elonmusk/statu…
PS, dudes: When you think we're being emotional, perhaps we're really just effing with you, because we can.
And, while readily apparent to us, I did not clue pipsqueak in that sometimes, we throw emotion at men b/c we know they can't handle it. So>
Even so, women have different ranges of emotion. Some abide by them more than others, just as men do. We're just not afraid of them.
Had to bite my tongue not to remind the pipsqueak he only existed because his mother had some sort of feeling (possibly pity) for his dad.
Feelings are fuel to women. We can move mountains, endure pain that would cripple a pipsqueak, and tolerate annoying males because of them.
A conversation with a condescending pipsqueak yesterday lead to a discovery. Men think emotion & anxiety are the same thing. Not to women.
