Eddie Glaude's raw, honest, true take on White America

Tags: 

I encourage every single person who can understand the spoken English language (or read English subtitles) to watch this 150 second clip of Eddie Glaude, to take it in, to accept the truth of it, to process it. The White people of this world, we (yes, me included) must let go the baggage of the lies we call our history.

Aidan holding the sign he made (which lots of people took pics of).

We dipped our toes into political activism today, joining the Women's March event being held in our hometown of Keene, NH. A friend of my wife's made her a hat, which I wore when we were walking back to the car. It was a good event, and it's helping our kids start to see beyond their privileged positions in life.

Please sign petition to block Comcast / Time Warner Cable merger

Tags: 

The two largest cable companies in the US, Comcast and Time Warner Cable, want to merge. Please take a look at the petition and sign it.

Here's what I submitted on the form:

As a long-time customer of TWC, the fact that they are being bought / merging with Comcast horrifies me. This will create one of the largest cable companies in the world, one of the largest internet providers in the country, and one of the largest controllers over access to content the world has seen. Couple this with with the recent net neutrality ruling, and the combined company will be in a position to strangle internet companies, hurting customers, hurting freedom of speech, hurting competitors, hurting innovation and hurting jobs. Please block this merger.
