7 kids were killed in Chicago in the last 2 weeks why don’t they speak out against this as well or protest in the neighborhoods where it’s happening or kneel for kids who are killed from gang violence


Because the those murders will be properly investigated and if they find out who did it they will put them on trial and most likely convict them. When blacks kill whites we know the same will happen.

But when the police or white vigilantes kill a black person the perpetrators are usually not even arrested.

Looking at the photos of both funerals there seems to be virtually nobody wearing masks. When I walk around outside here in Brooklyn most people would be wearing masks. Is mask wearing that rare in Ireland at the moment?

Very rare.

But sure you couldn't be seen wearing one when no one else is. You'd be the talk of the town!

It makes it a lot easier to wear one when most other people have them on.

"10 tweets a day"

It most have been a slow day for him. He seems to be absolutely obsessed about the issue.

So are we supporting Chelsea tomorrow or is it better to win it when we are actually playing?

I'm torn about whether or not I should get John "let's invade Iraq" Bolton's book. Maybe I can pick up a second-hand printed copy.
Hopefully somebody does a Cathal McCarron on it and puts the PDF of it up on the internet.


There are links to PDFs and epub format files on twitter.

A supporter sits in the stands at a campaign rally for Trump in Tulsa.




That demonstrates that Trump fans are good at socially distancing.

“I did something good: I made Juneteenth very famous,” Mr. Trump said, referring to news coverage of the rally date. “It’s actually an important event, an important time. But nobody had ever heard of it.”

Mr. Trump said he polled many people around him, none of whom had heard of Juneteenth. Mr. Trump paused the interview to ask an aide if she had heard of Juneteenth, and she pointed out that the White House had issued a statement last year commemorating the day. Mr. Trump’s White House has put out statements on Juneteenth during each of his first three years.

“Oh really? We put out a statement? The Trump White House put out a statement?” Mr. Trump said. “OK, OK. Good.”

Premier League footballers generally get a bad rap but recent work by guys like Sterling, Rashford, Troy Deeney, Wes Morgan, Jordan Henderson and others on racism and poverty seem to be making a real difference....

Been seriously impressed by Rashford  over the past few weeks.

This Trump loving attention seeker making a show of herself again.

"I do not want to pay to feed other people’s kids."

The right wing political philosophy in one sentence.

The issue with Confederate monuments in the US is that they were specifically raised to honour the Confederacy and send a message that those who created the monuments would resist civil rights for blacks.

No GAA club chose John Mitchel because of his pro-slavery views.
