ALS is a devastating disease and EVERYONE (from both sides) recognizes and supports research towards a cure/treatment. I, of course, support the research and the treatment and services that people with ALS need, nothing against that, but it’s ridiculously frustrating to see the press this social media fundraiser gets and no one really questions it, BUT suggest that we have a problem that involves race in this country and the deniers come out of the wood work. Much like medical research, the bias and the statistics that prove it are a FUCKING SCIENCE, they’re NUMBERS and they don’t lie. View Larger

Morning in Recife, the day after the U.S. advanced in the World Cup (despite the loss to Germany yesterday 1-0). Not many expected the U.S. to make it out of the so-called “Group of Death” in Brazil. But the team did and is one of the final 16 left standing. Now the NPR crew has to get to work booking the next leg of the journey: Salvador. Oh and time for a bit of breakfast too. View Larger
