Saturday Night #BlackLivesMatter Protest Party! (Part 15)

This is how I am feeling right now.

In memory of
Tommie Dale McGlothen Jr.

"As people exercise their right to protest all across the country––let the undeniable paths of our progress be a guide going forward: peaceful, sustained protest; strategic, committed organizing; and purposeful, overwhelming participation at the ballot box.” - Barack Obama, August 2020

PS - HAPPY ANNIVERSARY (October 2) to Sean & Jeffrey Breen!

PPS - Donald Dump - bwhahahahahahaha! 👿

Kicking it old school this week.

  1. Haven't thought of some of these songs in so long. The Drumpf... I can't even. Just move on up!

  2. Unlike Mitchell I don't know I know any of these songs, but Fats Domino, Chuck Berry and the Royalettes. I never could stand or take Little Richard.

    I just saw the news this week, and it is making me sad the BLM community is not embracing their black trans females more. Yet again another, the fourth for this year in Philadelphia, was found shot and dead this week. Like the gay community, every community need to welcome and accept all parts of their community. The violence against the trans citizens is out of hand!!

  3. Let's thank the good Lord that you have the healthiest President in history, as well as he being the smartest. Thoughts and prayers that the outcome of this terribly worrying episode turns out to be in America's best interests. Then if it transpires so we can REALLY dance! Meantime, thoughts and prayers. ;-)

  5. Hello Stranger, I can remember hearing that when AM radio was the only place to go to when you wanted to listen to music.

    And you do know the GOP thought the Idiot Jerk getting Covid was going to be just like Reagan getting shot... Wrong.

  9. Carebear, this is well worth the listen if only for Parliament and Solomon Burke! Everything else is icing on the cake. I know every single one of these artists, well, not personally. Now where did I put my 100% Funk cd?

  12. I love this weekend's selections, as well as the 24/7 news cycle. It seems like every time I log onto Twitter, a new WH suckup tests positive for COVID-19.

    Have a great weekend!

  17. Another one that I hadn't heard about, Tommie Dale McGlothen Jr. It feels like a lot of deaths are not getting the time or respect they deserve. My heart aches.
