Singer and actress Ruby Hill in character as “Della Green” from the 1946 Broadway production of “St. Louis Woman.” The Virginia-born Ms. Hill would go on to tell JET magazine in a cover story for their July 30, 1953 issue, that she believed her career suffered from the “Lena Horne jinx” because she resembled (and was modeled after) Ms. Horne too closely. “St. Louis Woman” was based on Arna Bontemps’ novel “God Sends Sunday” and written by Mr. Bontemps and Countee Cullen, with music by Harold Arlen and lyrics by Johnny Mercer. This photo was taken on July 2, 1946 by Carl Van Vechten. Photo: Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library

Black and Latino custodial workers @ the Capitol Bldg said it was degrading to clean up the debris left by white supremacist who violently stormed the Capitol Bldg. They even had to clean up smeared feces. One staffer said they were used to cleaning up after white supremacist (referring to racist Congressional members). Those who were there that day feared for their life b/c they weren't given any protection.
Mother Jones posted a list of "law makers" nationwide who promoted/assisted in the insurrection on our government. ALL should be ousted, stripped of pensions, charged with sedition and felony murder.
If black folks are present at a crime, whether they participated or not, they're charged with as many violations as white folks can conjure up. Felony murder is top of their list. Why not for white domestic terrorist?
25,000 National Guardsmen are set up to protect for Biden/Harris inauguration! Authorities are AGAIN saying that white domestic terrorist are the largest threat in American and to the democratic process.
NOT Black Lives Matter protestors, NOT even foreign terrorist, but American grown white men who are angry about all the white privilege they have.
