Colorado voters will get a second chance next month to abolish slavery

(CNN)Next month, Colorado will vote on changing the language in its state constitution so that it no longer allows slavery as a form of punishment. Slavery is technically — technically — still legal in many states.

Wait, slavery is legal?

Article II, Section 26 of Colorado’s constitution reads that there “shall never be in this state either slavery or involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime, whereof the party shall have been duly convicted.”
Jerome Powell: Tariffs Could Be Bad For the U.S. Economy
“If widespread tariffs remain in place for a long time, that’s going to be bad for the U.S. economy,” said Powell.

October 10, 2018

Ford is having a bad year in 2018. Its stock is down 29%, and the tariffs imposed by President Trump have reportedly cost the company $1 billion, as the company is in the midst of a reorganization. Now, the company is announcing layoffs.

Jim Hackett, Ford’s CEO, is working to engineer a $25.5 billion restructuring of the automaker, hoping to cut costs and remain competitive, the Wall Street Journal reports. But auto sales are down, and one reason is the trade tariffs that Trump has imposed on metals and other goods. According to Bloomberg, Hackett has said they have already cost the company $1 billion in profit and could do “more damage” if the disputes aren’t resolved quickly.

11 infant bodies found at former Detroit funeral home: What we know

DETROIT – The grisly discovery Friday of 11 badly decomposed infant bodies inside the ceiling of a former funeral home on Detroit’s east side raises disturbing questions of how this could have happened.

The anonymous tip that brought state investigators to the former Cantrell Funeral Home revealed nine bodies in a cardboard box, and two inside a trash bag placed in a casket.

The building’s new owner, who purchased it about a month ago, said the interior smelled horribly, and he’d removed four dumpsters of garbage as he started renovating it into a community center

#HimToo – This Is My Mockery Of Your Son

Hey gang.
This is William and Phoenix turned my attention to this #HimToo business on the twitter so I got involved and I’d like to riff a bit on it with some Morning Wine Cellar news and comment.

Street Art Outside Durga Puja Marquee Supports Sex Workers’ Rights in Kolkata

At the entrace of the marquee in North Kolkata’s Ahiritola, the tastefully done graffiti and other installations convey the untold story of the sex workers.

Street Art Outside Durga Puja Marquee Supports Sex Workers' Rights in Kolkata

A 300 feet long street art dedicated to the rights of sex workers was unveiled on Monday outside a Durga Puja marquee here where the theme is dedicated to sex workers of Sonagachi, said to be Asia’s largest red light area.

At the entrace of the marquee in North Kolkata’s Ahiritola, the tastefully done graffiti and other installations convey the untold story of the sex workers.

The street art vividly represents the journey of a sex worker, beginning with three women peeping from behind a door to a distorted ‘kumkum line’ (vermillion) on a woman’s forehead to signify her tragic life.

“We are very happy that these people thought of us. Like Ma Durga, we are also women and part of society. Due to this initiative, we have been able to mix with everyone,” said Kajol Bose, a member of Durbar Mahila Samanwaya Committee that is an exclusive forum for sex workers.

Its members present on the occasion were visibly happy when the graffiti was unveiled, setting the mood for the 10-day festival. The women expressed their joy and gratitude by gracefully dancing to the beats of ‘dhaak’ (drums).

The puja committee has come up with a theme of ‘Utsarito Alo’ (Streaming Light) to showcase respect that sex workers deserve and to support their demand for working rights.

Committee Working President Uttam Saha said: “For ages, our orthodox society has neglected sex workers. As human beings, we fail to realise that they too are someone’s mothers or sisters. They do not deserve torture or hatred.

“They spend their lives in silence, and face humiliation and rejection. We are hence determined to support the journey of these sex workers with a pledge to ensure basic rights to them so that they can live with their heads held high,” a committee member said.

Trans student barred from shelter during Virginia school’s mass shooter drill

School administrators couldn’t decide whether the student should be sheltered with boys or girls, so left her outside

A transgender student was separated from her peers during a mass shooter drill at a Virginia middle school, as school administrators debated where to send her.

A “lockdown” drill at Stafford County Middle School, designed to teach the students how to respond in case of an attack, required students to seek shelter in the nearest bathroom or locker room.

However, the transgender student, whose identity has been withheld, was instead forced to sit in the gym while the other students sought shelter, while teachers “discussed where she should go,” Equality Stafford said in a Facebook post.

After debating where would be safest for the student to shelter — during a drill designed to mimic the response to an active shooter — teachers ultimately told her to sit in the locker room hallway, away from the other students.

“The student was forced to watch the adults charged with her care, debate the safest place (for the other students) to have her shelter,” Equality Stafford wrote. “During this debate, she was instructed to sit in the gym with a teacher until the drill was complete, away from her peers and identified as different. After some additional debate, she was made to sit in the locker room hall way [sic], by the door away from her peers.”

Equality Stafford slammed the school’s response, noting that they essentially treated the student as a danger to the other students.

“During an event that prepares children to survive an attack by actual assailants, she was treated as if she was so much of a danger to peers that she was left exposed and vulnerable,” they wrote.

Stafford County Middle School’s spokesperson Sherrie Johnson issued a statementfollowing outcry over the school’s actions.

“The new superintendent has requested a review of all protocols and procedures to ensure that all children are treated with dignity and respect,” said Johnson. “We take such matters very seriously and they will be addressed. The welfare of all students is of the utmost importance for SCPS.”

Equality Stafford is urging parents and students to attend the county’s school board meeting on Oct. 9 to “lend your voice to the growing cry.”

“This is unacceptable, this cannot happen to one more child,” they wrote. “Not one more in this county. Not ever again.”

Donut Twitter Has A Hole In It

Phoenix Calida of Berniegressive Twitter has had some reasonable and nuance back and forth action with very level headed and even handed partisan Democrats.

Aside from that, we have a fast blast of news and comment to work around it.


A North Carolina Domino’s employee was fired after a customer came to pick up her order and saw a racial slur on the order board in place of her name.

Myasia Nelson told WFMY that she placed a carry-out order for two pizzas and a side of wings at a Domino’s in Burlington, North Carolina, on Monday night. When she was waiting for the food to be ready, she noticed on the order board that instead of her name, the n-word, spelled “NIGA,” was displayed.

The employee, who has not been named, told his supervisor, Junior Snyder, that there was no ill intent in the word he chose. He claimed that he simply couldn’t understand what she was saying. Snyder explained that the employee recounted the story to him and since he didn’t know how to spell her name, he just typed anything in to the order system.

However, Nelson wasn’t convinced it was a simple mistake. She claimed she was only asked to give her name once and Myasia, which is the name she gave the employee for the order, sounds nothing like the word he chose.

“Racial discrimination. That’s what I feel like it is because if it were anyone else they would have never done that,” Nelson told WFMY.

By Tuesday, Snyder had fired the employee because regardless of whether the incident was a mistake, he explained to WFMY that what happened doesn’t reflect the company’s values.

“You can’t work for your company,” Snyder said he told the employee. “We’re not like that.”

Although the Burlington Domino’s is an independent franchise, corporate fully supported Snyder’s decision to fire the employee and commended him for doing it immediately after he was made aware of what transpired.

“As you might expect, this behavior is repulsive and intolerable and has no place in our brand,” Domino’s told Newsweek. “There are more than 15,000 Domino’s units in 90 countries around the world – we are a diverse, inclusive brand and there is no tolerance for that behavior.”

Snyder apologized to Nelson and he explained to WFMY that moving forward, all he can do is ensure it doesn’t happen again, train employees and “make sure everyone understands we don’t tolerate this.”

Aside from the anger that Nelson felt on behalf of herself, the experience took on a deeper meaning when she viewed it through the lens of being a mother.

“I don’t want my daughter growing up being called the words that they wrote about me or being called any type of name,” she told WFMY.

Domino’s also offered Nelson a $50 gift card, but she refused it on the basis that $50 is not worth what she had to endure.

Eighth-grader claims teacher called him the n-word, hit him with clipboard

A former student at Martin Luther King Jr. School, a pre-K-8 school in Northeast Portland, claims that a substitute teacher assaulted him and made racially derogatory comments toward him.

The mother of a former eighth-grade student has filed a $300,000 lawsuit against Portland Public Schools, claiming a substitute teacher whacked the boy on the head with a clipboard and called him the n-word.

Lamar Warren is African American and was a 13-year-old student at Martin Luther King Jr. School at the time of the alleged assault in October 2017, according to the lawsuit filed last week in Multnomah County Circuit Court.

Philly trans community marches against violence


Philadelphia’s transgender community members and supporters rallied Saturday afternoon in LOVE Park and then marched down Broad Street, packing more than a block, chanting for justice, carrying signs — “Trans is beautiful” and “Trans women are women” and “Trans men are men, period” — in a bid to shine a light on violence and discrimination.

The march, held annually since 2011, has taken on a particular urgency this year in the wake of the death of Shantee Tucker, 30, an African American trans woman who was gunned down Sept. 5 on Old York Road near Hunting Park.

Breaking: Very Woke Black Man On The Internet Totally Shut Down Black Feminist.

In a heated back and forth on a comment section under a facebook post, a black man with a red black and green profile picture totally schools a black feminist on Bill Cosby.

To her own detriment, she decided to leave the first comment under a link with Cosby’s sentencing in the headline. (quote) “He got what he deserved. Consent matters”.

Little did she know though.
That soon to wake up in his very own bedroom to do the chores his mother requires for him to stay  there was Brotha Dialic Dashuku Kinyallado who just happened to reach for his ipod touch to check his facebook feed before getting up. hotep 1

As he scrolled for news of injustices and slander directed at the straight black man, he saw the link about his father figure, personal mentor and lifelong role model, Bill Cosby.

As he was about to leave a comment stating what he thinks Dr Frances Cress Welsing would say, he saw it.

The profile picture was a dark skin black woman with what he was pretty sure was a weave, which is very bad, next to the screen name Tanisha Washington.  Because she clearly hasn’t decalcified her name with the kemetic sanitizing pineal solution yet.

But he knew she would want to after he Woke her up to the knowledge.

He responds to her comment, creating a subthread.  “This is a plot by the gay agenda to demonize the black man and break up the black family”.

Stunned by such a rapid aligning of the chackraas, all she could think to respond with was, “what” coupled with a laughing emoji.

As an experienced street based speed date champion (often confused with harassment) he recognized confusion coupled with nervous laughter immediately and knew she needed to hear more. hotep 3

So he proceeded to further educate her on how Bill Cosby was the only positive black entertainer on earth and with zero assistance he turned gang bangers into violinists, sent whole police departments to prison for life and with his positive black family sitcom, cured our sistahs of Negro Bedwench Syndome.

After leaving his block text, he noticed she didn’t respond for about 30 minutes, he figured he should start his day after successfully shutting the nonsense down.

He laid out a stack of job applications on the coffee table so his mother could see them on her way out the door.  He gets the vacuuming done, mops the kitchen floor and pulls up some chicken to thaw for dinner.

Some Rice Krispie treats are in the cabinet for when he has to babysit his kids this weekend, so he has one with a cup of milk and decides to check his facebook notifications.

Well what have we here?  It seems that Tanisha Washington has replied to a post he’s following on The Grio.

Excited to see what his new student has learned, he clicks it and sees that she failed.

Her comment simply read “OMG. Another Hotep.  Boy Bye”.

He tried and tried.
Giving links to clips of Brotha Neely Fuller, links to Tariq Nasheed’s tweets, video clips of Dr Umar Johnson and nothing worked.

Other confused and probably lesbianfied black feminists just kept tagging their friends and leaving laughing emojis.

He knew what this was.
The knowledge he dropped was too much at one time and their little female brains aren’t ready for it and they went into hysterics. “I need to ease up and not shut them down like this” he muttered to himself.

A notification from another app shows up.
“Amber Lynn sent you 50 dollars on paypal”
Hmmm… this must mean she finally got her taxes.
Now he can finally get that new Hidden Colors DVD from Amazon.

Wokeness Intensifies.

RICHMOND, Va. — Virginia is suspending a newly introduced policy that would have barred women who visit inmates at state prisons from wearing tampons or menstrual cups.

Virginia Secretary of Public and Homeland Security Safety Brian Moran said Tuesday on Twitter that he had ordered an “immediate suspension until further review.”

The abrupt about-face comes a day after widespread media coverage of state prison officials’ plan to ban tampons starting next month as a way to prevent contraband from being smuggled into prisons.

Florida couple built drive-thru window at mobile home to sell drugs: cops

A Florida couple was arrested last week after they were caught allegedly selling drugs out of a drive-thru window they constructed out of the side of their mobile home.

William Parrish Jr. and McKenzee Dobbs of Ocala, Florida, were arrested on August 23 after investigators raided their mobile home following reports of four drug overdoses in the area, WFTV reported.

Ocala Police said the couple had turned a kitchen window into a drive-thru so customers would not have to constantly enter and exit their home, potentially drawing unwanted attention, WFTV reported. The house had signs directing people where to drive and indicated whether it was open or closed, police said.

“We were seeing some overdose incidents that were happening in this particular area, specifically at this particular location,” said Ocala Police Capt. Steven Cuppy. “There [were] some heroin sales that were going on there. Subsequently, through the investigation, we were able to determine that product was laced with fentanyl.”


Parrish, 32, was charged with driving under the influence, keeping a dwelling used to sell drugs, possession of drugs with intent to sell and resisting arrest without violence, according to Marion County Sheriff’s Office inmate records.

Dobbs, 20, has been charged with keeping a dwelling used to sell drugs, possession of drugs with intent to sell, possession of fentanyl and possession of fentanyl with intent to sell, court records show.


William Parrish Sr. told WFTV his son had been “trying to get himself straightened out” and maintained reports of overdoses were a “lie.”

Ocala is located inland, about 66 miles west of Daytona Beach.
