With a new administration in Washington it will be a challenge to get the 'liberals' to hold Biden-Harris to the few 'progressive promises' they made during their campaign. Biden is bringing back many of Bush & Obama's neo-cons to head his foreign policy. I'll be on this case without hesitation.

Kicked out of hotel for being black....



A guest at a DoubleTree Hotel in Portland, Oregon was harassed by staff when he was asked to leave the property after taking a phone call from his mother in the hotel lobby on Saturday night.

Jermaine Massey tells Don Lemon CNN that the incident was "hurtful" and "humiliating".


Due to the publicity two workers at the hotel were fired as they should have been. 

I sent DoubleTree Hotels a message today in protest of the treatment of this clearly innocent black man.  

A dog whistle has been blown in Washington calling forward all racists, bigots and Nazis - letting them know that it is 'acceptable' to practice such ugly behavior in public.

While at the Brunswick library yesterday I ran into a Cuban woman friend who shared with me a story of local people harassing her and saying, 'We speak English in this country' when she was heard speaking Spanish with one of her students.

It appears we are back to the age of the 'Know Nothing Party' in American politics.
