Three of the men filed a lawsuit in federal court in New York. They said they were told to leave a plane waiting to take off in Phoenix and noticed five other black men who also had been ordered off the flight.
The men said airline employees told them they were removed because of a complaint about body odor, which they said was false. The men said they complained about discrimination.

Harriot is correct about that, and Biden doesn’t ‘need’ to “care about Black folks” in order for him to be the better candidate overall… but that still doesn’t make Rose’s open support of a fascist in anyway “okay,” let alone ‘fascinating.’

I mean, how can we really know that racism exists unless a white man tells us so? It’s not like we can trust PoC’s to report accurately their everyday lived experience, now can we?

U.S. First Army soldiers held a ceremony in honor of Waverly Woodson Jr. on the beach where he came ashore and was wounded… For the next 30 hours he treated 200 wounded men while under intense small arms and artillery fire before collapsing from his injuries and blood loss, according to accounts of his service.

Woodson’s battalion, the only African American combat unit on Omaha that day, was responsible for setting up high-flying inflatable balloons to prevent enemy planes from buzzing over the beach and attacking the Allied forces.

At a time when the U.S. military was still segregated by race, about 2,000 African American troops are believed to have taken part in the D-Day invasion

Jazz duo takes on how US highways hurt Black communities

:thinking: Maybe it has something to do with our experiences, history, and news like this…

…as well as writers unable to find a better synonym for systemic racism than “racial conspiracy theories.”

It’s not a conspiracy theory if it’s factually true.
