Dore: Ogre

Поддержим всех!

Соседка по кондоминиумной ассоциации (имя изменено) приоткрывает окошко в удивительный американский мир.

Dear Neighbors,

The Million Man March (Chicago chapter) will be convening at 701 S State St. Friday, 6/19, to march to City Hall. This is a way to show solidarity of all races in Chicago, and should be fun.

If you want to join the march, go to Eventbrite and register. There’s no charge but you will get a “ticket” and be part of the head count for the march. Please join me in wearing face masks, and, of course, not attending if you feel sick or have a fever.

While I’m on the general subject of community-building - I am so very encouraged to see our S. State St. businesses reopening with such resilience and courage (имеется в виду - после погромов). Please, let’s support them with our dollars and friendship; and while we’re at it, let’s support our local (Beat 123) police, without whose courage and determination we would have no local business or personal safety. We can all support them by reporting crime when we see or experience it; refraining from hostile or criminal behavior ourselves; and attending beat meetings once they are back in session. (I hope it’s not necessary to add that the idea of “defunding” Chicago police is not in our community’s best interest; updating of regulations, communication techniques and other training is ongoing, and like everything else, that costs money.)

Finally, if you’re driving on Friday, be aware that parts of State St. will be closed for the Million Man March.

Ой, это еще не всё. Апдейт.

Looks like this has been rerouted to Columbus drive (from s state st) - still time to register & show your support for civil rights! ALL Black Lives Matter! (That’s the revised chant to clarify that #BLM means women, LGBTQ, disabled & so on - as well as able bodied Black American men, who are disproportionately arrested/jailed/murdered.)
A rising tide lifts ALL boats.
Shalom/namaste,

Рис Uncle Ben's: неизменно превосходный результат

Помните? Одна из первых телевизионных реклам. Всё, оказалось - расистский продукт. Про негров нельзя говорить "дядя". Mars, which makes Uncle Ben's rice, said in a statement the brand has "a responsibility to take a stand in helping to put an end to racial bias and injustices." It said it recognize that now "is the right time to evolve the Uncle Ben's brand, including its visual brand identity, which we will do." "Many African Americans object to the term "Uncle" (or "Aunt") when used in this context, as it was a southern form of address first used with older enslaved peoples, since they were denied use of courtesy titles," according to the Museum of Public Relations.

Эскимо тоже запретили

Оскорбительно для эскимосов: https://nypost.com/2020/06/19/eskimo-pies-to-drop-derogatory-name-over-racial-insensitivity/
The owner of the Eskimo Pie, Dreyer’s Grand Ice Cream, said in a statement they had been considering renaming the chocolate-covered ice cream bar and popsicle for some time. “We are committed to being a part of the solution on racial equality, and recognize the term is derogatory,” the company’s head of marketing said in a statement.
