### Knocked out. My strength and stamina are so much better than they were several years ago. I couldn't believe that, as the doctors said, eventually my body would recover, but it seems to have done so. It still has limits and it looks like three or four days in a row all day in near hundred degree effective heat pedaling a 200 pound bicycle plus me is one such limit. 15 plus hours sleeping so far today in a cool room. I can't complain but I sure detest losing the time from work.

Criminalizing the hustle: Policing poor people’s survival strategies from Eric Garner to Alton Sterling

''The disappearance of jobs has sparked political anger, feeding opioid addiction, alcoholism and early death, and, among the commentariat, fomented bewildered discussion about the state of white working class people. But the disappearance of work hit black people first and hardest, decimating industries at the very moments when African-Americans, after centuries of marginalization, had only just got their foot in the door.

In the Baton Rouge area, says Spence, the minority male unemployment rate in 2014 was 2.7 times higher than for whites.....

The contemporary era of policing and mass incarceration emerged precisely to confront black people with limited or no access to formal work. As the sociologist Loïc Wacquant puts it, “in the wake of the race riots of the 1960s, the police, courts, and prison have been deployed to contain the urban dislocations wrought by economic deregulation and the implosion of the ghetto as ethnoracial container, and to impose the discipline of insecure employment at the bottom of the polarizing class structure.”''

The reality represented by July 4th is this:  protecting slavery and antagonism toward Native Americans was inseparable from the lofty ideals promulgated by the founding fathers.  Yes,  the one percenters of 1776 sought “freedom” from a colonial master.  But accurately understanding our history makes it clear that the “revolution” was not against colonialism per se.  Rather it was to swap the masters at the top of the colonial pyramid from those who lived in England to those who lived in Virginia,  Maryland,  New York,  South Carolina,  Georgia and the rest of the 13 colonies. ........

What I fight for, I don't fight because I think I can win. I fight to win, but I don't fight because I think I can win. I fight because it needs to be fought. All throughout history that I admire have done the same.

When I allow the pain of my own concerns to become the focus of my attention then my life is more painful than joyful. When I overcome that and redirect my focus to the pain of others then my joy outweighs My Pain by far. They are always both there but the proportions, the joy hugely outweighs any concern I have for my pain. That's the magic of loving.  ''I have learned the paradox that when I love until it hurts, there is no more hurt, there is only more love.'' Teresa of Calcutta

***** It was only about a year ago I came across a thought that had never occurred to me. People of color are the color of Earth, natural. People like me without color of the freaks, the color of death, bones.
