Kinda fitting that TheDon has inadvertently accelerated integraation in the States with his racist rhetoric and policies...🤣:happyclapper

Quote

The CNN correspondent Abby Phillip noted the historic nature of Biden choosing a Black woman, Kamala Harris, as his running mate.

“Not only would Black women put Joe Biden in the White House, but they would also put a Black woman in the White House as well, and that is the sort of historical poetry that I think we will live with for a long time,” Phillip said.

She added, “Donald Trump’s political career began with the racist birther lie; it may very well end with a Black woman in the White House.”

As she says sheer poetry...

Watched the first episode of Small Axe about the Mangrove9 and although we still have a ways to travel we are some way down the road from 1970. 

As Bob sings in the eponymous song...

If you are the big tree, we are the small axe
Sharpened to cut you down (well sharp)
Ready to cut you down, oh, yeah

Looking forward to this weeks episode about Lovers Rock a genre that did not deserve the trashing it got by Joe Strummer in White Man at Hammersmith Palais...:headbang:whistle:heart

PS - Joe Strummer vs The Jam :boxing

Posting a link to a racist. emoji852.png

Here she is also making a sickening reference about a child that was raped.

I'm not a defender of Katie Hopkins by any means but take a step back and ask yourself why her tweeted joke seems to have generated significantly more outrage than the rape of a child did.

It is odd.
