In the three years since the Me Too movement entered mainstream discourse, much progress has been made—namely, belated focus upon long-alleged, and in some cases, now-convicted predators, and the beginning of a reframing of the way in which we acknowledge and speak about the spectrum of sexual abuse, from harassment to assault. For Tarana Burke, who coined Me Too as a hashtag and built a now-global movement, it’s only the beginning, as she is taking a multipronged approach to the transformation of our communities, communication, the upliftment of Black girls and femmes, and the experiences of survivors of sexual violence.

He had a rock.

In the sweltering August heat of Ferguson, Mo., less than a stone’s throw from where Officer Darren Wilson had pumped six bullets into the body of Michael Brown Jr., I clenched the rock-tossing hand of a 19-year-old kid I had met a few hours earlier.

A few feet away, a multifarious conglomerate of long gun-wielding cops, Missouri state troopers and actual soldiers stood ready to use any means necessary to suppress any unrest. Earlier that day, this same kid described how Ferguson cops terrorized young Black men in the neighborhood where Mike Brown died. Now he was ready to start some shit.

I reminded him how he complained about “the media” describing protesters as “thugs...

Category: کیمیا | No comments

New Delhi: India has clearly told China that it will talk about disengagement in the whole of Ladakh starting from Depsang plains to Pangong Tso, said sources. India has also warned China that Indian soldiers will fire if PLA troops will try to outnumber them like in Galwan on June 15.

As a poet and spoken word artist myself, I can appreciate someone with a wicked pen game and great delivery.

In fact, I am not the only spoken word artist and poet on The Root staff.

Perhaps you’ve heard of Michael Harriot, our resident Wypipologist, master race-baiter and the last real Negus alive. Try not to cry as you watch him perform “The Top Secret Recipe for Aunt Phyllis’ Fried Chicken.”

And then there is Zack Linly, the champion roaster of racists everywhere. Listen to him speak on his experience with therapy.

I don’t have many videos performing spoken word, but I do have a video of myself performing the “For the...

Twins comfortable, albeit a bit bored in quarantine on off day

Category: کیمیا | No comments

There’s a small living room amid the suites the Twins are staying in this week, and this being Minnesota, someone has brought a cornhole set in case a player wants some friendly competition in the hallway. There’s a communal TV, too, usually tuned to baseball or wired to a video game console.

“It’s a pretty comfortable set-up. We get all the things that we’re used to, the food that we’re used to,” Rocco Baldelli said. “Guys are chilling out, relaxing.”

So what does the Twins’ manager have planned for a quarantined off day?

“I’ll probably sit on my bed, or the other furniture in the room at some point,” Baldelli said. “Probably be on the phone for a good bit. I’m really not sure what else.”

Millions of Americans, idled by the pandemic and the need to avoid risking infection, can relate to...

A New Hampshire state representative is the latest white man to piss a bunch of people off because he couldn’t help but be his racist self.

The Concord Monitor reports that earlier this week, Rep. James Spillane told his followers on Facebook, “If you see a BLM sign on a lawn, it’s the same as having a porch light on at Halloween. You are free to burn and loot that house.” The New Hampshire Department of Justice has launched an investigation into Spillane as a result of the post.

As of Thursday, the post has been deleted from Spillane’s page...

Minnesota priest who says COVID-19 is a scam told to halt such preaching

Category: کیمیا | No comments

A Twin Cities priest who had preached that COVID-19 was a man-made scam has been told by the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis to refrain from talking about such matters from the pulpit.

The Rev. Robert Altier had delivered a 20-minute sermon Sept. 6, claiming COVID-19 was concocted in laboratories in the United States and China and that it was a “lie” that tens of thousands of people are dying from it. A YouTube version of the sermon has been viewed more than 412,000 times.

At the time, the archdiocese said Altier’s sermon was “under review.” Earlier this week, Archbishop Bernard Hebda announced that he had spoken with Altier and told him such issues were not appropriate for a sermon.

“The Archdiocese of St...
