We wanted to put these images at the heart of what we were problematising. Since the 19th century and the invention of photography, most symbolic domination has been done through visual domination. And we're convinced that yesterday's stereotypes have very much impacted our contemporary societies.

Kelly should never have been as MSNBC, especially as 2 populr black presenters were shunted aside/canned to make room for her.

It's all part of the unfortunate move by the boss of MSNBC to move the channel to the right, as if the US needs another Fox news

I wouldn't argue.

The point I must emphasize though for readers is not the faults of the one person but the function of the crucial role each performs for US americans--perhaps like no other place on earth. That is, in this "media" broadcast trap, to model the moral rectitude of the lonely, self-interested actor.

Mueller Pushes Back at Russian Firm's Bid to Wriggle Out of Charges
Special Counsel Robert Mueller pushed back against the Russian company in his crosshairs over alleged interference in the 2016 election on Tuesday, telling a federal judge in Washington that the conspiracy charges he filed against the firm aren't dependent on prosecutors proving its ["]election interference["] was a crime.
[...]
"The indictment alleges that a purpose of these manifold acts of deception was to frustrate the lawful government functions of the United States," the filing states. "Those allegations are sufficient to support the charge of conspiracy to defraud the United States regardless of  whether the defendants agreed to engage in conduct that violated [the Federal Election Campaign Act] or [the Foreign Agent Registration Act]."

It's terrorism if you can prove that it's a false-flag operation carried out to smear law-abiding patriots, or if brown people did it. Otherwise, it is something that should not be discussed or remembered at all, because it was clearly a one-time operation by mentally imbalanced lone wolves with no clear or comprehensible motives that has no greater significance for anyone.

Florida man arrested in bombing investigation

The U.S. Justice Department told reporters today that a man in South Florida is in custody in connection with mailing of pipe bombs to political opponents of Donald Trump.

Senior law enforcement sources have identified the suspect in the investigation as Cesar Sayoc Jr., 56, of Aventura, Florida.

Sayoc is a registered Republican who voted in the 2016 election, but who has numerous felony arrests, including one for another pipe bomb incident. Guess it is mostly black Floridians who get their voting rights removed for felonies. Or he was never convicted of any of these offenses. It was his genetic profile from previous cases that led law enforcement to him this time.
