Literally the first thing I found. 

 

I know a pinterester (or whatever they call themselves). I'm putting her on this.

I just realized that we could have named him Doakes and had the collar say, "Surprise, mother pupper"

 

Oh well. Too late!

Went to DC last night to see the 8th and I Marine parade.

 

The choreography and precision that they have is very impressive.

 

Its definitely worth going down there to see it.

As a student and teacher of history, the 1619 Project has been extremely informative and rewarding.

It's frustrating to learn what you haven't been taught. it's informative, but also pretty frustrating. 

 

For example, the Tuskegee experiments should be required knowledge. And, yet...

I definitely see how that is frustrating. On the other hand, many people seem to be frustrated that this publication has come out at all.

I do think ignorance relating to this subject is partly why we have the problems we do around race. It's harder to take certain positions when you have a deeper knowledge of the history related to them.

100%.

 

I actually brought up Tuskegee because I did a quick fb poll last year (to the day) that asked how many people knew about this. A lot more "yes" than I expected, but I think people were fronting for social media.

The other short article on the medical experiments during slavery and the impact they still have today was an eye opener to me.

The overall impact of slavery is unfortunately still immense, which is why I detest when one dismisses it because of how long ago it was.

The sheer amount of African-American history is overwhelming, not to mention harrowing. Plus there's the white washing of it that we have all been exposed to. So the level of ignorance is understandable, yet it's a problem, and I wish people would try to educate themselves more on the topic before reaching some of the conclusions that are commonly reached on the subject. The 1619 Project is an excellent resource to do so and has greatly further educated me on the subject. For that I am grateful.

Busted my phone screen on vacation. Before I spent $800 for a new I spent $25 for a screen replacement kit to see if I could repair it and prolong buying a new phone. Just did it and 90 mins later I’ve got a new screen. Wasn’t that difficult with an instructional video.

After 2 weeks on the road, sleeping in my own bed.  Finally, a comfortable mattress, pillows, size (Cali King), and sheets!

Got to ask Ta-Nehesi Coates a question during a Baltimore teacher's talk this evening. So that was cool except for how nervous I was while at the mic.

Congrats to the Mystics. Bars here in Bethesda went nuts, pretty cool. Even if they couldn't name two players. Still really neat.

I understand why Jimmy's gets all the hype.  I got crab cakes all over while I was visiting for the week, and that was my favorite.

I've never been. They showed Jimmy's during the bumper for the Ravens game yesterday. Gotta get over there.

 

Where else did you get crabcakes?
