Saturday Shares – Dear President Obama. May I Offer A Critique?

Saturday SharesSaturday Shares is a feature on from the sticks to the bricks and back again that promotes deliberate re-blogging.  What is deliberate re-blogging?  A concerted effort to re-blog the posts of other bloggers deliberately and not randomly.  I have found that I am less likely to re-blog because I might be reading someone’s post at a time that is inconvenient for me to post or comment.  By saving links throughout the week, I can schedule my re-blogs instead of randomly re-blogging five posts all at once – a practice I find annoying.

Instead I am reblogging some of my most popular posts from 2015 and developing a Favorite Episodes Season Three page in the process.

Dear America,

Dear America,

We need to talk.

We need to talk about #Race and #Racism in America.  My Twitter feed is on fire over #RoxburyShooting.  Please do not turn the Roxbury neighborhood of Boston into another #Ferguson.  I see so many tweets that are attempting to do just that on both sides of the battle.  Continue reading
