A little over one year ago, Tanitoluwa, an immigrant from Nigeria was FIRST introduced to chess at PS 116 in NYC.

This past weekend at the New York State Chess Championships he claimed the title of New York State Primary Chess Champion! (Top Players K - 3rd Grade)

All the while Tani and his family have been living in a HOMELESS SHELTER.

Re: Trump’s America

A constituent asked Steve King a pretty easy question at a town hall: "is a white society superior to a nonwhite society?"

His response: "I don't have an answer for that"

Re: Trumpís America

random thought:
It feels like a lot of people don't realize how recent slavery was and segregation history after that and people have difficulties to understand why it is sticking to much in nowadays civilisation.
Well, there is still a decent part of the population in the US that grew up along with civil war veterans.
When you think about that it becomes easier to understand history lingering with all crazy elder in families spouting their traditional racist views, transmitting them more efficiently than you want to acknowledge.
Now that part of population is obviously going down a lot but it's presence is felt everywhere.

random data:
Quote:
In 2014, there were 72,197 Americans aged 100 or older, according to a report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
when they were 10 year old they had civil war vets and/or people from that era walking along them.
In 2010 the 90 year old+ was 1.5M or so.
etc...

someone get my point pls

Re: Trump’s America

There are still people alive who were the victims of government oppression under Jim Crow. We could at least give them reparations...but no instead we continue to do some of the same things Jim Crow did like disfranchise AA and Native Americas voters.

Was trying to figure out how this was possible, then read she married an 86 year old veteran at age 19.

Yuck.
