  •  Happy Friday, y'all! (9+ / 0-)

    Cold and damp here in CT and 5 pm looks like midnight.

    It is such a struggle to stay positive after reading about poor black people being abused and criminalized by those sworn to serve and protect.
    One young man arrested 62 times! Young man just picked up and thrown in jail for 3 years because they can. Can you just imagine the horrors that boy went through? Sometimes it gets so very hard to even think about these injustices.

    My sister works with a certain Airport Services company in PA and told me of a young (African) mother who was fired for eating a piece of bread that was left on a plane. This multi-million  company was paying this woman a little over 7.00/hr and turned around and fired her eating a piece of bread.

    Thanks to the Chief and crew for another informative diary.
