Email: Affleck Told PBS to Hide Slave-Owning Relative
And the pressure appeared to work on ‘Finding Your Roots’
By John Johnson, Newser Staff
An email exchange in the newly published database of hacked Sony documents looks to be embarrassing for Ben Affleck and PBS. Affleck demanded that the show Finding Your Roots withhold the nugget that he had a slave-owning ancestor, reports the Boston Globe. The pressure appeared to be successful, because when the Affleck episode aired, it made no mention of the relative. The revelation is courtesy of an email written by host Henry Louis Gates Jr. to Sony chief Michael Lynton seeking advice on how to handle the situation, reports PageSix. Lynton’s advice: “I would take it out if no one knows, but if it gets out that you are editing the material based on this kind of sensitivity then it gets tricky.” Read on http://www.newser.com/story/205621/email-affleck-told-pbs-to-hide-slave-owning-relative.html
CaseClosed2: Not only does it get tricky, it gets out that two public respected people are not truthful. Ben, so sorry you learned your ancestors owned slaves, but it is what it is, not that YOU had anything to do with it which is what you should have said when you found out. Trying to hide that fact now makes you look like a liar and one who should not be trusted. It also makes Louis Gates, Jr. suspect, because he sought the advice of another untruthful person. Why would Henry Louis Gates ask Sony chief Michael Lynton what to do? Wasn’t he involved in the Sony email scandal? One should be careful who one asks for advice.
CaseClosed2: I can’t understand how a mother would leave her disabled child in the woods. He could not fend for himself especially due to his condition. What was this mother thinking? She was only thinking about herself and her boyfriend. Women, please don’t put your child before a man, a man who probably was ok with you leaving your Quadriplegic son and who probably won’t be there for you in the present or the future. your child should come first.
My grandson and I were sitting in my car in a McDonald’s parking lot eating our fast food(yes, sometimes I eat it) when a driver driving a black car with tinted windows drove in and circled around the lot and parked in back of my car with the car’s lights on. There were plenty other places to park and my grandson and I were thinking the same thing at the same time, “Hey what is this driver up to?” We saw a police car leaving the parking lot and we followed. There was no need for us to stay in my car parked in the lot to find out what that diver was up to. Whatever the driver was up to it seemed to us it was us.
The moral of this story, always be aware of your surroundings.
Today, April 7, 2015 is National Beer and No Housework Day. People celebrating this day candeer beer and sit around all day doing nothing. But if they’re at work, they can’t drink beer and sit around all day. Their bosses arepaying them to look like they are working.
Where it all began:
On April 7th, 1933, President Franklin Roosevelt took a step toward ending prohibition and signed a law allowing people to brew and sell beer in the U.S., but only under certain guidelines.
As a young teen, I remember my grandma would send me around the corner from where she lived and get her a carton of draft beer and even though I was a minor, I was still sold the beer which was in a white paper container which poured from a pump in the store. Grandma sure loved her beer.
Today, beer is the most widely consumed alcoholic beverage, more than water, tea, soda or coffee.
Today is also National No Housework Day. In 2008 a study conducted at the University of Michigan found that the average married American woman does 17 hours of housework per week in addition to working 8 or 9 hours a day outside the home cause she’s a woman W O M A N, so today take your shoes off get a beer and don’t move a muscle. Tomorrow, your work will have piled up and you’ll have to work 18 hours to get it all done.
I watched The Black Girls Rock Tribute to black girls and women and it was nice to see black women being honored something that doesn’t happen too often in main stream media.There are many black women in The world who are doing extraordinary things. Today there are black women scientists, lawyers, doctors, judges, engineers and a First Lady of the United States who has paved the way for more black women to become First Ladies. The First Lady is a lady as the title states. She is not a grown girl. Girl is what whites called black women back in the history of America. and some whites still do today. It was their way of letting black women know they were less than, invisible and did not matter. Black women had no voice.
As we should not use the N word due to its negative history, we should not refer to grown black women as girls. It is racist and should be buried in the minds of whites who continue to use it because they believe they are privileged and superior, while black women are less than no matter their accomplishments, status and education. Black women should recognize this attitude and not feed into it without being aware of the origin of referring to grown black women as girls.It does matter what black women are called and it also matters what they answer to.
Breast Milk Sold Online Isn’t Always Purely Human
In study, 10% of samples contained cow’s milk
Women who purchase breast milk online likely have their baby’s health in mind, which makes the findings of a study published today in Pediatrics so concerning. Researchers led by Nationwide Children’s Hospital bought 102 samples of milk via milk-sharing websites and discovered that 10 of them “had a level of bovine DNA consistent with human milk mixed with at least 10% fluid cow’s milk,” they write in the study. That’s a concentration high enough to indicate the cow milk was intentionally added, either straight from the carton or by way of baby formula. “This poses a risk to infants with an allergy or intolerance to cow’s milk,” says researcher Sarah Keim, in a press release. One milk bank director tells USA Today infants could experience bloody diarrhea or eczema as a result of ingesting it.
The newspaper reports that one of the sites the researchers purchased the milk from is Only The Breast, which bills itself as a http://www.newser.com/story/205024/breast-milk-sold-online-isnt-always-purely-human.html
