1. "President Barack Obama recently shared a public version of his soundtrack for the summer. This

list seems to capture the feelings of a president who happens to be black, in the twilight of his term, and contemplating his successes, disappointments, and understanding of how America's history, as a white supremacist society, grown from the contradictions of slavery and freedom, whose culture is black and brown, mated with the thrown off human surplus of Europe, built on bloodied land stolen from First Nations peoples, as well as the labor of the Asian, can simultaneously love and loathe the idea and fact of its first Black President of the United States."

Thank you for this, she.. and the iconic pic(to me already) of the young Black boy facing down "Police Thuggery" in Ferguson, MO. It evokes such heartbreak and brutality and those who are standing up to it.
