My job was doing touch-up exterior paint. Something I could actually do!

Incredible experience. Got to meet the mom and daughter who’ll be living here and it made me even more perfectionistic haha.

"As Mali’s relationship with French — the language of its former colonial ruler, France — has grown more fraught, an effort to use AI to create children’s books in Bambara and other local languages is gaining momentum."

@researchbuzz Language is so important to culture. Glad this is happening.

I pass on movies which star racist assholes like Mel Gibson and Clint Eastwood.

@Melissabeartrix Remember that whole “empty chair” shit he did about Obama?

StillIRise1963,
@StillIRise1963@mastodon.world avatar

@numbercrow Yeah, I can’t watch anything with him in it anymore either.

StillIRise1963,
@StillIRise1963@mastodon.world avatar

@thepoliticalcat Same. Any western rubs me the wrong way.

StillIRise1963,
@StillIRise1963@mastodon.world avatar

@thepoliticalcat Yeah, I can’t with any of it. It’s disgusting that it exists as “entertainment."

StillIRise1963,
@StillIRise1963@mastodon.world avatar

@Callalily Yeah, he’s a racist fuckwad too.

StillIRise1963,
@StillIRise1963@mastodon.world avatar

@Callalily Yeah, she’s one fucking lunatic.

@StillIRise1963@mastodon.world avatar

@thepoliticalcat I saw it in college as well.

StillIRise1963,
@StillIRise1963@mastodon.world avatar

@Sablebadger I agree. It’s the whole scientology thing. And, I’m just tired of seeing him. Go sit down somewhere.

@StillIRise1963@mastodon.world avatar

@QueenValhalla It was offensive back then. I can’t even imagine watching that now. Talk about not aging well at all.

StillIRise1963,
@StillIRise1963@mastodon.world avatar

@thepoliticalcat Yep, like Gone with the Wind.

@thepoliticalcat It was on TV a lot when I was a kid.

If these fucks were as diligent about self-edification as they are about oppressing and controlling other people, they’d be able to make something decent out of their lives.🙄

Duke University is showing its ASS by opening the Black full ride scholarship to EVERYONE. Racist motherfuckers.

StillIRise1963,
@StillIRise1963@mastodon.world avatar

@thepoliticalcat Yep. You can see who is betting on what right now. Disgusting, all of them.

I’m reading about projected sea level rise by 2030. That’s 6 YEARS FROM NOW.

@DRBLD2009 That’s really scary. Must have been very freaky.😲

StillIRise1963,
@StillIRise1963@mastodon.world avatar

@panamared27401 Yep. It’s going to be brutal. Just one more way to punish people.

I don’t think we talk enough about how our government and nation are under attack by a foreign enemy.

StillIRise1963,
@StillIRise1963@mastodon.world avatar

@Aviva_Gary Yeah, it’s all so crazy that you can’t admit you’re under attack, lest people see you as weak, when everyone knows your government has been infiltrated, is suffering from a long coup and you could lose the whole thing because you can’t be seen as weak, though you clearly are.
