For Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, we wanted feature an amazing American woman many of us have not heard of. Grace Lee Boggs was a human rights advocate and activist for over 7 decades, fighting for a better America. Check our blog feature to learn more about her work that led to her helping the likes of MLK, Malcolm X and more.

As a #Socialist one must recognize the #Responsibility to stand in #Solidarity with all of our comrades of all denominations & false divisions created between the #Proletariat by the #Bourgeoisie ; one of the most harmful still extant is the #Prison system by which #DeJure #Slavery is kept #Legal by our #UpperClass as a means of psychological cudgel for routing #Resistance by the #WorkingClass This also helps justify the stagnation of our society with #DeFacto #WageSlavery for all members of the working class, making an example of certain sections of us for whom their contempt is greatest. In #Milwaukee #Wisconsin once a prime bed of #Socialism & #Union #Activism in #America , they are succeeding in re-splitting us along lines of #EthnicTension with half of their #AfricanAmerican populace in prison thus far. The surreptitious & insidious phrasing of the #13thAmendment is what allows these #CivilRights travesties to continue, made to appease the South & their inclinations as was the #CivilRightsActOf1964 passed to appease African-Americans with a facade for their pacification. As #Americans we have the ability to change our #Constitution if enough of us come together to #Vote on it, though! We have the chance to make history in a way that is absolutely unprecedented in modern history, and we can do it together if you help share the word so we can show up to the booths! If 2/3 of all Americans can agree on it, we can circumvent our #Congress, so tell as many people as you know! This is an injustice we can end now! #AbolishSlavery

๐Ÿ˜ฉ #MyWhitePeople ๐Ÿ™ˆ . For years, #RachelDolezal led a secret life in the Pacific Northwest. Her friends believed she was a #blackwoman with a passion for African-American issues. Others saw her as a vocal #civilrights leader who later became the local #NAACP president in Spokane, Wash. . She was also a liar, her parents said. Estranged from their daughter, her parents came forward in June 2015 to out her as a #whitewoman who had carried on a giant ruse, exposing her in what quickly morphed from a local story into an international sensation. . Two months later, the #authorities claimed in court documents this week, she started another scheme. . From August 2015 until last November, Ms. Dolezal received nearly $8,850 in #publicassistance from Washington State after she had falsely claimed she had little income and needed financial help, according to court documents. Prosecutors charged Ms. Dolezal, 40, who legally changed her name in 2016 to Nkechi Amare Diallo, with theft by #welfarefraud, #perjury and falsifying records for public assistance โ€” all felonies. . During the more than two years she received public aid, Ms. Dolezal reported a single source of income: $300 per month in gifts from friends. But investigators with the stateโ€™s Department of Social and Health Services found that she had deposited nearly $84,000 into her bank account during that same period, according to court documents. .

Sherita Dixon-Cole, 37, of Grapevine, Texas, was stopped in her white Chevrolet Malibu early Sunday morning by Texas Department of Public Safety officer Daniel Hubbard, who said in an affidavit that her driving was "erratic and unsafe for the roadway" and it took "several miles" to pull over the vehicle. After being arrested for intoxication, She claimed Hubbard repeatedly told her she could be released in exchange for sexual favors. The body camera was immediately checked and found her claim to be false. However, her civil rights attorney had already put the story out to the public without verifying the facts first. They issued a public statement apologizing to the police officer and his family for putting them through all of this. When they reached out to get a statement from Dixon-Cole, she was unavailable for comment. THERE ARE ALWAYS TWO SIDES TO A STORY.

At the newly renovated Pythian Market for their soft opening. The Pythian Market features a mural by Brandan Odums of A.P. Tureaud and Lucille Dejoie, who met at the building's rooftop theater in the 1920s. There is lots of great food and it's full of people. I recommend the arepas and plantains from La Cocinita.
