Radio Free Tom's Reality Check Twitter Lecture & Pep Talk

Andrew Yang says Dems should be going on Fox News...

Note that this Jan. 24 CBS tweet with a video of him saying that has 13,300 likes and 3,100 retweets. But the initial replies I see include a ton of negative and dismissive ones:

.@AndrewYang says Democrats should be going on Fox News and criticizes the DNC for not letting the channel host a Democratic debate: "How can you win an election and bring the country together if you literally won't talk to 40 or 50% of the population?" https://t.co/F9xWFIU08W pic.twitter.com/U1ZglSxM19

When You Can’t Go Home Again: Immigrants and Artists Reflect

The review of this show reminds me that I have noticed a trend in elite and expensive contemporary art, especially as wealthy collectors are global, to seek out and regard new immigrant talents in MFA programs, especially African diaspora. Partly because at this point in time Africa is seen as where all the cultural excitement is. This seems to aggravate some Afro-American artists, who feel that they deserve this moment in the sun first.

It's social conservative spin, BUT

this which I noticed because Andrew Sullivan retweeted it, it's worth a look to see both:
