They say a picture is worth a thousand words. In this case, it might be worth a thousand food stamps.

In the town of Brushton, New York, 30 people were arrested for food stamp fraud. Can you guess how many people were black? None, as the picture below shows. All of those arrested were white. Thankfully, the myth of black folks as welfare cheats who game the system — a carefully crafted GOP invention to appeal to racists — has been exposed for what it is.

And with the 2016 presidential campaign upon us, here is an issue Republicans will be unable to exploit, or shouldn’t be able to exploit for political gain. Not that they won’t try.

The Arizona State University police officer whose arrest of a professor went viral and drew national criticism has resigned following an independent investigation into his conduct.

Earlier this week, Ferrin announced his resignation in a “scathing” letter.

“The lack of support, cooperation, and downright bias, coupled with an agenda to ruin my career, has become unbearable and I will not subject my family to this any longer,” he said in the letter sent to ASU.

my insides, are joyous and grateful for the years i wear.

i just wish the look of wisdom didn’t get saggy!

it’s on my mind more lately.
