America, Asian, and Community: MESSAGE FROM THE FATHER OF MOLLIE TIBBETTS The person who is accused of taking Mollie's life is no more a reflection of the Hispanic community as white supremacists are of all white people. To suggest otherwise is a lie. Justice in my America is blind. This person will receive a fair trial, as it should be. If convicted, he will face the consequences society has set. Beyond that, he deserves no more attention. To the Hispanic community, my family stands with you and offers its heartfelt apology. That you've been beset by the circumstances of Mollie's death is wrong. We treasure the contribution you bring to the American tapestry in all its color and melody. And yes, we love your food. My stepdaughter, whom Mollie loved so dearly, is Latina. Her sons _ Mollie's cherished nephews and my grandchildren are Latino. That means I am Hispanic. I am African. I am Asian. I am European. My blood runs from every corner of the Earth because I am American As an American, I have one tenet: to respect every citizen of the world and actively engage in the ongoing pursuit to form a more perfect union. Given that, to knowingly foment discord among races is a disgrace to our flag. It incites fear in innocent communities and lends legitimacy to the darkest, most hate-filled corners of the American soul. It is the opposite of leadership. It is the opposite of humanity. It is heartless. It is despicable. It is shameful. https://www.desmoinesregister.com/story/opinion/columnists/2018/09/0 1/mollie-tibbetts-father- common-decency-immigration-heartless-despicable-donald-trump-jr-column/ 1 I 631 3 1 002/ A Message From the Father of Mollie Tibbetts
America, Asian, and Community: MESSAGE FROM THE FATHER
 OF MOLLIE TIBBETTS
 The person who is accused of taking Mollie's life is no more a
 reflection of the Hispanic community as white supremacists are of all
 white people. To suggest otherwise is a lie. Justice in my America is
 blind. This person will receive a fair trial, as it should be. If convicted,
 he will face the consequences society has set. Beyond that, he
 deserves no more attention.
 To the Hispanic community, my family stands with you and offers its
 heartfelt apology. That you've been beset by the circumstances of
 Mollie's death is wrong. We treasure the contribution you bring to
 the American tapestry in all its color and melody. And yes, we love
 your food.
 My stepdaughter, whom Mollie loved so dearly, is Latina. Her sons _
 Mollie's cherished nephews and my grandchildren are Latino. That
 means I am Hispanic. I am African. I am Asian. I am European. My
 blood runs from every corner of the Earth because I am American
 As an American, I have one tenet: to respect every citizen of the
 world and actively engage in the ongoing pursuit to form a more
 perfect union.
 Given that, to knowingly foment discord among races is a disgrace to
 our flag. It incites fear in innocent communities and lends legitimacy
 to the darkest, most hate-filled corners of the American soul. It is the
 opposite of leadership. It is the opposite of humanity. It is heartless.
 It is despicable. It is shameful.

Crazy, Drinking, and Heroin: WINCHMANS STOWED tbt It's nearly been 10 years since I went to Iraq as a combat soldier in the British army. Madness... Given that I am now educated on British foreign policy, I think it's crazy that I joined in the first place. But for anyone who is a soldier right now, you will know that the governments of the global "super powers" (whoever is ready to carry out the most murder) are psychopaths & prey on the vulnerable. The militaries of the planet always recruit in poor & impoverished areas. I have done recruiting drives for the military before, we went to the working class schools & fairs, showed the people rifles and tanks and told them how much secure money you will get. Which when you don't have a job seems amazing. I couldn't get a job in the city of Leeds. I put my resume in every shop, I left school with good grades. But there was one problem, I was an African with a British passport. All of the managers (when I actually did get interviewed) were European. West Yorkshire, UK is quite racist, let's just say I did about 50 interviews & never got a job. At the time I was a mess, I was selling crack & heroin, sleeping with random women, eating trash, drinking alcohol & generally being a useless human being. So when my friend joined the army & told me I would get it... I was like cool, where do I sign up. For me it was either get locked up or join the military. I heard £18,000 per year and I was all in. When I was in Iraq I was on about £22,000 per year. My life to the military was worth less than £2000 per month. I went to Iraq to help the British military steal oil in an illegal war for the west. Whenever you hear of a soldier being blown up by the side of a road, it's because one of the jobs we had was to protect equipment and contractors going in, and oil and resources coming out. Here I am in a helicopter about to do eagle VCPS, (vehicular check points) this is where you fly in to an area in a helicopter and make sure nobody is coming to blow up resource theft routes. I nearly got blown up a few times. I saw people getting murdered. We got mortared (artillery bomb) nearly every night. All for what, oil that we don't actually need. If you're in the army... getout

Food, Memes, and Protein: Progress!

The recommendation is for “regular intake of vegetables, fruit, whole grains and protein-rich foods, especially plant-based sources of protein.” _ The draft guidelines also encourage a shift away from animal foods by advising that people eat foods with unsaturated fat instead of saturated fat (saturated fat is found almost exclusively in animal foods). The recommendation is for the “inclusion of foods that contain mostly unsaturated fat, instead of foods that contain mostly saturated fat.” _ There’s no more dairy food group, a win not only for public health but also cultural inclusivity, given that up to 90 percent of some non-European ethnicities are lactose intolerant. It’s also a huge win for the cows who really don’t want us to kill their babies so we can steal their milk.
