It was also not a requirement that the photos of Alabama native Lonnie Johnson, inventor of the Super Soaker water gun, be plastered on every public library.
“Look at the hordes of Dutch and Irish thieves and vagabonds, roaming about our streets, picking up rags and bones ... Look at the English and Scotch pick-pockets and burglars, crowding our places of amusement ... Look at the Italians and French mountebanks, roaming the streets of every city in the Union ... Look at the wandering Jews, crowding out business streets with their shops as receptacles for stolen goods, encouraging thievery and dishonestly among our citizens ... Look at the Irish and Dutch grocers and rum-sellers monopolizing the business which properly belongs to our native and true-born citizens.”

As we know, Collins followed through with her promise and Kavanaugh was officially confirmed as associate justice to the Supreme Court on Saturday.

Veganism and feminism. The two “isms” that appear to inhabit two completely different galaxies but meet up at the annual liberal millennial convention in San Francisco.

So, while women have not always been treated with an equal lack of privilege, a constant force in the lives of all women is the patriarchy.
It was after one Hispanic and one Indian colleague left me to stand in the flight boarding queue in Durban International Airport that a man approached me. I am what most would consider white but let us use the term loosely as I was more of a light hue of salmon, as my sunburn entered the “peeling” phase. As I finished one last peel of skin, the man who was a few shades redder than "the Donald," asked where I was from and what brought me to the Motherland.
