Donald Trump, Memes, and Saw: AFRICAN REFUGEE BECOMES MONTANA'S FIRST BLACK MAYOR IN MORE THAN A CENTURY BLACK ENTERPRISE.coM Yass! 🙌🏽👏🏽✊🏾 ProtectTPS . Via @undocublack Repost @blackenterprise: WilmotCollins, 54, moved to Montana 28 years ago when he fled Liberia in 1990 during the country’s first civil war. He told The Globe and Mail that during the war, frequently the only thing to eat was butter mixed with mayonnaise. Along with his wife and five relatives, they crammed themselves into a single room near the American Embassy hoping it would serve as a safe haven as fighting raged across the city. Collins and his wife, Maddie, fled Liberia to Ghana, the Ivory Coast and finally, the United States.⠀ ⠀ President Donald Trump’s attack on immigrants around the country is in full swing. In a state whose African American population is less than 1%, Montana resident Wilmot Collins, a former civil war refugee from Liberia who was fairly new to the political scene, saw an opening. He seized the opportunity to counter the president’s narrative by sharing his own story.⠀ ⠀ “When people can relate to the real deal, they’re wide-eyed, because all they’ve heard is what comes out of our leadership,” he told The Globe and Mail. “There’s no way when people hear your stories and struggles they can’t identify with you.”

Memes, Didier Drogba, and 🤖: DE2 Costa: "I have always seen [Didier] Drogba as the example to follow in terms of a centre-forward. He was strong and scored loads of goals and he was a quality player. Just watching him train helped me." 🔵🔵🔵🔵 "Just seeing him, I was amazed. This is because — and I’m not making this up at all — I specifically used to watch Chelsea [before I joined], who are obviously a big club, just to see Drogba. He was famous and everyone would talk about him. I even liked watching him when he played for the Ivory Coast." 🔵🔵🔵🔵 "When I arrived here, he was never cold with me, quite the opposite. I wasn’t exactly scared of him, but he was such a legend who had helped the club grow and been a part of all that." 🔵🔵🔵🔵 "He made history here, so could have been dismissive of me but, no, he was always fantastic with me. I will always have fond memories of him and whenever I see him, I thank him. It’s not always easy for someone with so much history to be in that position." 🔵🔵🔵🔵 "I was playing well, scoring goals, and he would support and motivate me, whereas others might not have done the same. I take my hat off to him." 🔵🔵🔵🔵 "Sometimes I might go overboard, whereas there are others who, yes, they want to win, but if they don’t it’s no big deal for them. I’m different. I want to win and always have done since I was small. I don’t know if it’s in my blood or just my personality." 🔵🔵🔵🔵 "Not just the fans at the ground but the other Chelsea supporters and my teammates have shown that they care about me and I feel the same about them, too. If I go on to the pitch, do things well and the fans love me and my team-mates, too, we take on that energy which can change a game." "I don’t know what it is exactly, but when the fans get behind you it gives you a boost and can change a game completely. When a game is not going your way, you need them because it gives you an extra push."

Disappointed, Food, and Fucking: IECITIENSIEN MONGOLIA NDORRAS GUATEMALA REPUBLIC REFUBLIC BOLIVIA youknowyourebritishwhen: strangerwmf: Look, wherever you live in the world, Britain has probably tried to invade you at some point. That is a historic fact because new research claims that Britain—in our long, colorful, magnificent, slightly-shameful and occasionally cross-dressing history—we have invaded all but TWENTY TWO countries in the world. This new study found out that, at various times, Britain has invaded almost 90% of the countries around the planet. […] It’s not that we failed to invade those other twenty-two, it’s just that we basically forgot. — John Oliver in The Bugle, about “All the Countries We’ve Ever Invaded and the Few We Never Got Round To” For the curious, the 22 Britain never got round to are: Andorra, Belarus, Bolivia, Burundi, Central African Republic, Chad, the Republic of Congo, Guatemala, Ivory Coast, Kyrgyzstan, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Mali, Marshall Islands, Monaco, Mongolia, Paraguay, Sao Tome and Principe, Sweden, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan and Vatican City. (See map, from the Telegraph, above.) Generally, these are either land-locked nations/nations with few ports or small nations (that might have gone over-looked). But I’m disappointed about Sweden. It’s right fucking there. France, meanwhile, holds the record of being invaded by the British the most, which Oliver suggests is because their food smells so good wafting across the Channel. Places Britain sort of forgot to invade.
