Re: “Free Will Astrology

Cancer, I too am delving into my deep dark mysteries. I am at a turning point in my life...and with my national identity. It doesn't suit me anymore. I tried not to break up with you America, you broke up with me. The last straw happened just a week ago.

Re: “In 1974, a group called the Weather Underground bombed the Gulf Building. Can you shed any light on the reason?

Very good piece. The war in Angola (which in the sixties was the only existing slave nation) and the Weather Underground's (albeit it) radical resistance had a great deal to do with the independence of Portugal from a 48 year oppressive dictatorship of Salazar, which happened in 1974 by "the carnation revolution" named so because someone stuck a red carnation in the barrel of the gun and the overwhelming turn out of all the people forced the government to turn itself over to independence without bloodshed.

Re: “Withdrawn painting at arts festival spurs discussion of race and representation

I don't know enough about the artist but news flash, artists aren't always perfect. How can white people help? There's racism, and the police have shot innocent black people. A the thin blue line has lost people too. Police have been trained under a warrior mentality for years, and de-escalation in police departments is not popular, the FOP endorsed Trump. It scares me, and I don't know what to do. Anyone can be next on the list, as we saw in the Holocaust. Who is to judge the levels of prejudice from one person to another? It's important to talk about it, to try, even if we make mistakes towards one another - not violent ones, just living and learning with each other. It has to be done, it absolutely has to be done. It is naive to think that all white people are blind to their privilege, or that we all want the same kind of status quo world. This is a ripple, not a huge thing. If we don't resist more smartly we will have wasted years that could be vital!
