America, Community, and Future: SUMNER AP/SHUTTERSTOCK Linda Brown, Whose Brown v. Board of Education Case Ended Segregation in Schools, Dies Rest in Power, LindaBrown! 💓✊🏾🙇🏾‍♀️ • • • Linda Brown Thompson, who as a young girl was the student at the center of the landmark Supreme Court case Brown v. Board of Education that declared school segregation unconstitutional, has died in Topeka, Kansas. She was 76. The Peaceful Rest Funeral Chapel in Topeka confirmed it is handling funeral arrangements for Brown. Born in 1943, Brown was in third grade in 1950 when she was denied admission to an all-white elementary school in her hometown of Topeka. She lived 20 blocks from her segregated school, but just five blocks from the all-white school. Kansas schools at the time were segregated by state law. Brown's father, Rev. Oliver Brown, sued the school district in 1951. The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) took up the case, which was combined with segregation suits against school districts in other states when it came before the Supreme Court. Future Supreme Court justice ThurgoodMarshall was the lead attorney for the NAACP. In a unanimous ruling in 1954, the court declared school segregation an unconstitutional violation of the 14th Amendment's guarantee of equal protection under the law. The ruling, written by Chief Justice Earl Warren, struck down the "separate but equal" doctrine that had served as the basis for segregation of public facilities since the 1896 case Plessy v. Ferguson. "Sixty-four years ago a young girl from Topeka brought a case that ended segregation in public schools in America," Kansas Gov. Jeff Colyer told the Topeka Capital-Journal. "Linda Brown's life reminds us that sometimes the most unlikely people can have an incredible impact and that by serving our community we can truly change the world." lindabrown brownvsboardofeducation education

America, Donald Trump, and Philadelphia Eagles: No Players Knelt During The National Anthem at Super Bowl Lll @balleralert No Players Knelt During The National Anthem at Super Bowl LII- Blogged by: @RaquelHarrisTV ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Sunday night, the majority of America tuned in for the Super Bowl. As P!nk started to sing her rendition of the national anthem, you may have noticed not one player kneeled. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The big game was held in Minneapolis and the opposing teams were the Philadelphia Eagles and the New England Patriots. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you watched as the anthem was sung, Patriots stood with their hands over their hearts, as did the Eagles. Back in 2016, ColinKaepernick proudly set off the movement to kneel during the anthem to highlight and protest police brutality, oppression and the social injustices that have most recently plagued our country. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Since then, many players have continued Kaepernick's protest, even in his absence. Despite the backlash from NFL sponsors, owners, and Donald Trump, the protests lasted throughout much of the season. However, during the biggest night in sports, players stood for the anthem, putting an end to the longstanding controversy- for now, at least. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Ironically, before the game though, Trump released a statement calling for America to "proudly stand for the National Anthem." Trump also held a Super Bowl party in his West Palm Beach, Fla. golf course before flying back to Washington D.C. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The Eagles beat the Patriots, 41-33.

Each participant was asked to donate $10,000 to a cause of their choice, and Kaepernick would then match it with another $10,000. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Yesterday, he matched his last $10,000 with Usher’s donation to H.O.M.E., a Georgia-based organization for single mothers. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Thank you to everyone who has supported me, matched me and my pledge, and, most importantly, the people,” Kaepernick expressed. “I know that we still have a lot of work to do, however, by getting everyone involved, I truly believe that we can all achieve and move mountains towards our goals for social justice." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Others to participate were Kevin Durant (Silicon Valley De-Bug), Jesse Williams (Advancement Project), Steph Curry (United Playaz), Snoop Dogg (Mothers Against Police Brutality), Serena Williams (Imagine LA), T.I.

America, Donald Trump, and Memes: Decline In Tourism Since Trump Took Office Has Cost The U.S. $4.6 Billion In Spending and 40,000 Jobs @balleralert Decline In Tourism Since Trump Took Office Has Cost The U.S. $4.6 Billion In Spending and 40,000 Jobs - blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As Donald Trump continues to make America great (again) for his rich white counterparts with his racist rhetoric, discriminatory views on immigration and blatant ignorance, international tourism is on a steep decline. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to new date from The National Travel and Tourism Office, reported by NBC News, the country has suffered a 3.3 percent drop in travel spending and a 4 percent decline in inbound travel since Trump took office. As a result, $4.6 billion has been lost in spending, 40,000 jobs have been taken away and the country has lost its spot as the world’s second most popular destination for foreign travel. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The dip in travel is said to be, large in part, due to Trump. With his controversial travel bans to his racist language and extreme anti-immigration views, international tourists are less interested in traveling to the world’s melting pot. For some, it just isn’t worth the security risk. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to the LA Times, the U.S. Travel Association is looking to launch a “Visit US” campaign to remedy the situation.
