Mark Ruffalo, Michael Moore And More Celebrities To Lead Anti-Trump Rally In New York

Mark Ruffalo, Michael Moore, Alec Baldwin and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, among other high-profile figures, will lead an anti-Donald Trump rally on the eve of the president-elect’s inauguration, The Associated Press reports.  Organizers told the AP that they’re expecting thousands of people to attend the event in New York City, which is being put together by Greenpeace and activist organization MoveOn.  On Saturday, Moore announced the news on Twitter, encouraging his followers to come to the event. According to his tweet, the rally will take place right in front of Trump International Hotel. Mark Ruffalo, Alec Baldwin & myself will be holding a massive rally in NYC in front of Trump International Hotel this Thursday, 6pm! Come!— Michael Moore (@MMFlint) January 14, 2017 “We are sending a message to Washington that we will fight, at every step, discrimination and harmful policies, today, tomorrow and every day,” Ruffalo said in a statement obtained by the AP, adding that participants “are coming together to stand up for one another, as we will do every day, to protect the values we hold dear.” Moore, Ruffalo and Baldwin have all been vocal about their opposition to Trump and his policies. The stars often use social media to speak out against the former “Apprentice” host.  The 6 reasons Trump is unfit, unable and cannot be a legitimate president:… https://t.co/Gm5vWqb8hk— Michael Moore (@MMFlint) January 15, 2017 If Trump believes that criticism of, opposition to, distaste for his election will eventually subside, he is mistaken.It's just starting.— ABFoundation (@ABFalecbaldwin) January 9, 2017 With Bannon's appointment, Trump crosses over from disrespect for to abject hatred of ppl of color.— ABFoundation (@ABFalecbaldwin) December 2, 2016 Ruffalo also hit the streets in New York City to protest Trump’s presidency after the election results were announced back in November.  Love Trumps Hate love fest NYC Thousands in the Street.

19 Women On Why Repealing The ACA Could Hurt Women

At 1:30 a.m. on Thursday morning, the Senate voted to dismantle the Affordable Care Act, including the amendment that provides a no-pay copay for contraception. If the House votes the same way, which it likely will, a potential 55 million women will be affected.   Unsurprisingly, many women have reacted strongly to the news that their access to health care might be in jeopardy, using Twitter to express their outrage at what this vote to repeal the Affordable Care Act means for women’s health. It’s about more than just unplanned pregnancy. Limiting women’s access to affordable health care and birth control, means limiting access to care for endometriosis, migraines, acne, PMS and PMDD, debilitating menstrual cramps and a host of other health concerns.  Below are 19 tweets from women about why the Senate’s vote to repeal the Affordable Care Act matters: Let's be clear: A vote to repeal the #ACA is a vote to go back to the days of women paying out of pocket for basic preventive care. #SaveACA— Cecile Richards (@CecileRichards) January 12, 2017 If you believe in health care that empowers healthy women to have healthy pregnancies&deliver healthy babies with healthy futures #SaveACA— Heidi Murkoff (@HeidiMurkoff) January 12, 2017 Pre-ACA, transgender folks were denied coverage (for even unrelated stuff) bc being trans was considered a "pre-existing condition" #SaveACA— Jessica Kurr (@jkurr) January 12, 2017 Without the ACA I won't be able to afford the birth control pills I need for my painful endometriosis— KARASUNO (@shitty_sailor) January 12, 2017 If your objection to Obamacare is birth control related, maybe your issue is with women having agency over their bodies and not the ACA— O General My General (@rideatdawn) January 2, 2017 Hey, it's Mom. Remember how happy you were about free birth control? Call your rep and tell them to oppose the ACA repeal. Ok, love u. Mom— (@antinewblack) January 12, 2017 When women say to get an IUD before #ACA is repealed, it's serious. My Mirena was replaced yesterday. $0. Without insurance would be $2500.— Kate (@kateiscrafty) January 12, 2017 If #AllLivesMatter, then save ACA. Protect women, children, veterans and people w pre-existing conditions.That's not partisan. It's right— Brittany Packnett (@MsPackyetti) January 12, 2017 I spent years on oral contraceptives - led to depression, weight gain, cramps,&anemia. B/c of ACA I could afford an IUD. #SavetheACA— Katie Reichard (@klreichard) January 12, 2017 I tried to get an IUD before ACA passed. Insurance said it would be $1600. I got one after and it was free. https://t.co/kgfJl7WMTC— kelsey mckinney (@mckinneykelsey) January 6, 2017 Welp I'm glad I got a new ten year IUD a couple of months ago since the senate is systematically gutting the ACA.— creepstina (@christinaislazy) January 12, 2017 Many women lose employer-based coverage because of #caregiving responsibilities and rely on the #ACA for their health care. #ProtectOurCare— Josephine Kalipeni (@malawian81) January 12, 2017 Eliminating ACA & Planned Parenthood overwhelmingly affects elderly, women, minorities & poor.

People Are Freaking Out About Donald Trump's L.L. Bean Tweet

President-elect Donald Trump tweeted his support for L.L. Bean on Thursday, encouraging his followers to buy the brand after the retailer got mixed up in politics.   Thank you to Linda Bean of L.L.Bean for your great support and courage. People will support you even more now. Buy L.L.Bean. @LBPerfectMaine— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 12, 2017 Though it appears Trump was trying to direct followers to the retailer’s main account (@LLBean), the president-elect instead linked to Linda Bean’s lifestyle account (@LBPerfectMaine). The tweet was sent a week after the Associated Press reported that L.L. Bean heiress and board member Linda Bean contributed $60,000 to the pro-Trump pact Making America Great Again LLC, even though individuals were supposed to be limited to $5,000 contributions.  Consequently, organizers behind the anti-Trump movement Grab Your Wallet asked its followers to boycott L.L. Bean and called for the removal of Bean from the company’s board.  In response to the boycott, L.L. Bean executive chairman Shawn Gorman posted a Facebook message on the company’s page over the weekend saying that the company does not get involved in politics.  “L.L.Bean does not endorse political candidates, take positions on political matters, or make political contributions,” he wrote. “Simply put, we stay out of politics. To be included in this boycott campaign is simply misguided, and we respectfully request that Grab Your Wallet reverse its position.”  Bean responded to the controversy during a Thursday appearance on “Fox and Friends,” referring to the boycott as a case of “bullying.”  “I’m not going to back down. I never back down,” she told viewers. “If I feel I’m right.”  Twitter users responded to Trump’s L.L. Bean tweet with fury on Thursday, calling out the president-elect for promoting a brand on his social media account.  Wtf, @realDonaldTrump? Is the presidency an ad agency now?— David G.

Как выбрать полезную и интересную книгу для чтения со смартлабом?

В прошлом году я прочел 15 книг. В этом 21 книгу. Как я узнаю какие книги я прочел? Я захожу в свой профиль на смартлабе и тыкаю эту ссылку: Так я попадаю на страничку книг, к которым я оставил рецензию. Ну а поскольку я оставляю рецензии ко всем прочитанным книгам, они у меня тут все и есть: http://smart-lab.ru/books/reviewed_by/dr-mart/ Вы можете таким образом посмотреть не только те книги, которые я оценил, но и любого другого участника смартлаба, кто любит читать:) По умолчанию тут книги появляются по дате добавления, но вы можете их отсортировать в любом порядке: Там же в профиле есть ссылка «сохранил» — это те книги, которые я хотел бы прочесть и добавил в свое избранное. Если вы перейдете в книжный раздел смарталаба (команда BOOKS в консоли смартлаба), то увидите там ряд ссылок — например ТОП-100 книг смартлаба, а еще есть интересная фича — списки книг. Там пока немного списков, — только те, на которые у меня хватило фантазии, но которые могут вас заинтересовать… Например: 5 книг, которые меняют сознание  13 книг, написанных смартлабовцами  6 лучших книг по трейдингу по версии Тимофея Мартынова 6 книг по трейдингу, которые рекомендует Александр Резвяков  Там так же есть книжные рекомендации Баффета, Герчика, Безоса, Грефа... ну а чтобы добавить прочитанную книгу в свою коллекцию, и привязать ее к своему профилю на смартлабе, достаточно при написании поста выбрать опцию книжная рецензия, выбрать книгу и поставить оценку... Каждая прочитанная книга — это плюс в вашу карму. Чтобы посмотреть кто больше всех прочел на смартлабе, открываем список людей (команда PPL консоли) и нажмем сортировку по прочитанным книгам… Получим, следующий рейтинг: Очень мало читаете, товарищи! Уверяю вас, книги — это основной источник расширения кругозора и получения систематических знаний. Читая статьи в интернете, вы вряд ли получите уверенный фундамент для правильного восприятия реальности. В общем, желаю вам всем в 2017 году читать каждый день, хотя бы несколько страниц и делиться своими впечатлениями и обсуждать прочитанное на смартлабе.

Let Alec Baldwin Explain Why Donald Trump Is Like A Grilled Cheese Sandwich

If you’ve been watching “Saturday Night Live” for the past few months, you’ll know that Alec Baldwin has mastered the art of impersonating Donald Trump. In a new interview with The New York Times, the actor spoke about getting into character, saying it’s all about the “puffs,” or the pauses Trump takes whenever he gives a speech.  “I see a guy who seems to pause and dig for the more precise and better language he wants to use, and never finds it,” Baldwin told the paper. “It’s the same dish — it’s a grilled cheese sandwich rhetorically over and over again.” Baldwin admitted that when it comes to getting the impression right, he’s more interested in the way Trump takes up space than “what’s inside him.”  The former “30 Rock” star is well aware that some may consider his impersonation a tool for normalizing Trump’s controversial behavior, but for the actor, now more than ever, “we have an obligation — as we would if it was him or her — to dial it up as much as we can.” Baldwin’s appearances as Trump have made him an easy Twitter target for the president-elect, who just can’t seem to take a joke. The two have exchanged plenty of words on the social media platform:  Watched Saturday Night Live hit job on me.Time to retire the boring and unfunny show. Alec Baldwin portrayal stinks. Media rigging election!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 16, 2016 I watched parts of @nbcsnl Saturday Night Live last night. It is a totally one-sided, biased show - nothing funny at all. Equal time for us?— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 20, 2016 ...@realDonaldTrump Equal time?Election is over. There is no more equal time. Now u try 2 b Pres + ppl respond. That's pretty much it.— ABFoundation (@ABFalecbaldwin) November 20, 2016 ...@realDonaldTrump I would make every effort 2 retrain Americans so 2 cre8 jobs.1 way u make America gr8 again is 2 put it back 2 work.— ABFoundation (@ABFalecbaldwin) November 20, 2016 Just tried watching Saturday Night Live - unwatchable! Totally biased, not funny and the Baldwin impersonation just can't get any worse. Sad— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 4, 2016 Baldwin did offer to stop impersonating Trump on one condition:  ...@realDonaldTrump Release your tax returns and I'll stop.Ha— ABFoundation (@ABFalecbaldwin) December 4, 2016 We’re not holding our breath.  To read more from Baldwin’s interview, head to The New York Times.  -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

В Индии 280 человек умерли от шока и скорби по министру штата Тамилнад

Почти три сотни человек не смогли пережить кончину государственного деятеля Джаярамы Джаялалиты, которая умерла 5 декабря. Как сообщает агентство ANI, 280 человек погибли в результате шока и скорби, которые они испытали, узнав о смерти министра штата Тамилнад. Детали и обстоятельства, которые привели к гибели большого числа людей, не приводятся. Правящая партия в связи с этим объявила о выплате компенсаций семьям погибших. #UPDATE Now 280 ppl have died of grief&shock over #jayalalithaa's demise,AIADMK announces Rs3 lakhs compensation for kin of deceased: AIADMK- ANI (@ANI_news) 10 декабря 2016 г. Также власти выплатят 50 тысяч рупий партийному функционеру, который пытался совершить попытку самосожжения, узнав о смерти Джаярамы Джаялалиты. Такую же сумму получит мужчина, отрезавший себе палец из-за смерти министра. Джаялалита скончалась в больнице 5 декабря после того, как 75 дней провела в клинике, куда её доставили 22 сентября с лихорадкой и обезвоживанием. 4 декабря у неё произошла остановка сердца, а на следующий день министр скончалась. Джаярама Джаялалита начинала свою профессиональную деятельность как актриса. Она приобрела огромную популярность, снявшись более чем в сотне фильмов. Позже в ходе своей политической карьеры, которая отметилась рядом коррупционных скандалов, она тем не менее трижды одерживала верх на выборах главного министра штата Тамилнад.(https://russian.rt.com/wo...)

Россия и Пакистан разрешили разногласия по газопроводу «Север-Юг»

Россия и Пакистан близки к компромиссу по тарифам газопровода «Север-Юг», по которым были споры, соглашение по строительству будет подписано до конца года, сообщил замминистра энергетики Юрий Сентюрин. «По моим оценкам, стороны близки к тому, чтобы найти компромисс до конца года. По межправительственному соглашению подписание коммерческих соглашений на строительство должно состояться до конца года», - передает его слова ТАСС. Сентюрин уточнил, что основное противоречие состоит в том, чтобы доказать, что заявленный уровень тарифа экономически обоснован и позволяет этот проект рассматривать экономически осуществимым и рентабельным для того, кто его будет выполнять. «Пакистанская сторона очень придирчива. Анализируется объем технологических потерь, объем газа, который отвлекается на собственные нужны. Эти вещи они сравнивают с лучшими мировыми аналогами, анализируется техническая база», - сказал он. По его словам, в Пакистане по этому поводу создан специальный тарифный комитет, куда входят представители Минфина, Минюста, и других профильных ведомств. «Очень не простой процесс», - подытожил Сентюрин. 5 сентября посол Пакистана в России Кази Халилулла сообщил, что строительство газопровода должно начаться скоро. В октябре прошлого года правительства России и Пакистана подписали соглашение о сотрудничестве при строительстве газопровода «Север - Юг». Стоимость газопровода, реализацией которого займется компания «РТ – Глобальные Ресурсы», дочерняя структура Ростеха, составит 2-2,5 млрд долларов. Газопровод протяженностью 1,1 тыс. км с пропускной способностью до 12,4 млрд куб. м в год свяжет терминалы по приему сжиженного газа (СПГ) в портовом городе Карачи на юге Пакистана с городом Лахор на севере страны. Доказанные запасы природного газа Пакистана составляют около 570 млрд кубометров - страна занимает шестое место в Азиатско-Тихоокеанском регионе по этому показателю (после Австралии, Китая, Индонезии, Индии, Малайзии). В 2014 году производство природного газа в Пакистане составило 42 млрд кубометров. Весь добываемый в стране газ потребляется на внутреннем рынке.  Основными производителями природного газа в Пакистане являются государственные компании Oil and Gas Development Corporation (OGDCL) и Pakistan Petroleum Ltd. (PPL). Первый в Пакистане терминал СПГ (мощность 3 млн тонн в год) был запущен в марте 2015 года.

Chip And Joanna Gaines Go To An Anti-Gay Church. Does It Matter?

It’s been a rollercoaster of a week for Chip and Joanna Gaines, the reality TV couple who are the stars of HGTV’s popular home renovation series “Fixer Upper.”  The Gaineses made a name for themselves by helping clients buy and remodel homes. They’ve been praised for their on-screen charm and their talent in design. They haven’t used their show as a platform for spreading hateful messages about queer people. So does it matter that the couple supposedly attended a church that touts so-called “traditional” Christian views on sexuality, believes homosexuality is a sin, and where the pastor actually promotes conversion therapy?  Yes, it matters. But the reason why goes much deeper than what the Gainses may or may not believe. On the same day that their fourth season premiere earned top ratings, the Gaineses found themselves under fire for attending an evangelical church that preaches against homosexuality.  The controversy began after a Buzzfeed reporter tried and failed to get a definitive answer from the couple about their personal stance on same-sex relationships. Instead, the publication made claims based on old sermons and statements from the couple’s church, Antioch Community Church and its pastor, Jimmy Seibert. Like many conservative evangelical churches, Texas-based Antioch promotes the view that same-sex marriage is un-Biblical and that people can choose to walk away from the “homosexual lifestyle,” according to a sermon from 2015.  Anti-gay views have gotten at least one HGTV show canceled in recent years. In the wake of Buzzfeed’s claims, HGTV told The Huffington Post on Thursday: “We don’t discriminate against members of the LGBT community in any of our shows.”  The article provoked criticism from conservatives who accused Buzzfeed of promoting a “witch hunt” against Christians. Given the outlet’s failure to get a clear answer from the Gainses before publishing the piece, conservative Christians weren’t alone in their disapproval. Some called the post “dangerous” for reinforcing the chasm between liberal media and President-elect Donald Trump’s conservative supporters. This @BuzzFeed non-story on the Gaines' non-views on SSM is an example of how Trump got ppl to ignore digital media https://t.co/p6T5d39fj1— Brandon Ambrosino (@BrandonAmbro) November 30, 2016 The problem with this particular article, and the reactions it provoked across the political and religious affiliations, is that both distract from issues that are very real and present for America’s queer community. When the media focus too narrowly on an individual’s (or their pastor’s) religious belief, it gives fuel to the conservative Christian claim that American Christians are being targeted and even persecuted for their religion. Two days after Buzzfeed’s article was published, the Gaineses’ pastor Jimmy Seibert called on Christians to “stand together in the face of adversity.”  “When I have a biblical conviction about my lifestyle choices or how I should run my business or how I should run my home, we should be free to do that – to lovingly express our views to the world around us,” Seibert said in an interview with conservative pundit Todd Starnes. But beliefs aren’t the problem. We don’t need to agree on theology. It’s how these beliefs are acted upon and in the long run, how they make other people vulnerable to discrimination, that matters.  It’s not that the Gaineses and their church shouldn’t be free to believe what they want about God and God’s will for marriage and relationships. Freedom of belief is an essential part of our democracy; there’s a diversity of belief within the Christian church itself. The way Christians have interpreted what the Bible has to say about sex has changed over the past 2,000 years, and it will continue to change.  While there are churches that preach against same-sex marriage, there are many denominations ready to welcome LGBTQ couples and their families into their congregations. What makes conservative Christians’ morality more just, true, or valuable than the morality of a happily married queer person? Power. It’s one thing to personally believe that homosexuality is a sin. It’s completely different when that theology is used to justify laws and policies that take away other people’s civil rights. People of faith should be able to interpret scripture in whatever way makes sense to them and to bring these views into the public forum. But American Christians also have to realize, as the religious majority in this country, that their beliefs, their churches, and their votes are not just personal. They have the power to influence policy and the lives of people who don’t subscribe to their beliefs. It’s one thing to personally believe that homosexuality is a sin. It’s completely different when that theology is used to justify laws and policies that take away other people’s civil rights. I was raised in a very conservative Christian church. I still have plenty of Christian friends and family who oppose same-sex marriage, who don’t think LGBTQ people deserve one of the very first gifts that God gave to humans in the Bible ― a helper, a suitable partner, to grow old with and raise a family with. When I get into a conversation with them about this, they take offense at the idea that it is bigoted to believe in what they call “traditional” marriage. Their responses can be summed up like this ― “We love the sinner, but hate the sin.” Meaning, they say they love and welcome LGBTQ people, but they believe being in a same-sex relationships is a sin. And if that’s a tough and unpopular teaching, well, the Bible never said being a Christian would be easy. The problem is that many conservative Christians don’t see how their beliefs, even on an individual level, can have a negative impact on queer people’s lives. They don’t make that connection ― or they just don’t care, because it doesn’t affect them personally. But it’s way past time to start looking at the fruit of this kind of theology.  On a personal level, not everyone is called to celibacy. For those people, this theology leads to a life devoid of the joy and hope that straight people take for granted.  On a national level, we’ve just elected a president who has surrounded himself with advisors, cabinet members, and a vice-president who are virulently anti-gay, and ready to use their Christian faith to roll back years of progress our country has made. Conservative religious beliefs are used to undermine queer people’s right to marry. But marriage isn’t the only right at stake. We’re talking about the Bible being used to support discrimination in the workplace and to deny LGBT workers just compensation and benefits. It’s theology being used to remove federal recommendations that ensure that transgender students are treated with dignity.  This is about Christians quoting the Golden Rule but not caring that gay and lesbian parents are worried that their parental rights to children could be in jeopardy. It’s about people lifting up the Good Samaritan but trying to protect parents who want to submit their gay and transgender children to psychological abuse in the form of conversion therapy.  There is nothing loving about a theology that allows people to suffer in this way.  There is nothing loving about a theology that allows people to suffer in this way. So does it matter that the Gainses attend an evangelical church that preaches against the way that queer people find love? Yes, it does. And it matters for every other conservative evangelical in America. Especially now.  Evangelicals helped put Trump in the White House. And over the next four years, they face a reckoning. They need to ask themselves ― what are you saying with your church attendance? What will you tell the young gay or lesbian teenager in your church who just heard the pastor condemn queer love? Do you recognize the toxic fruit that conservative Christian theology has produced in the lives of queer people? Do you see how scared they are right now? Are you speaking up for the oppressed? Will you stay silent? Do you care?  -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Cuban-American Journalists Warn Against Romanticizing Fidel Castro

function onPlayerReadyVidible(e){'undefined'!=typeof HPTrack&&HPTrack.Vid.Vidible_track(e)}!function(e,i){if(e.vdb_Player){if('object'==typeof commercial_video){var a='',o='m.fwsitesection='+commercial_video.site_and_category;if(a+=o,commercial_video['package']){var c='&m.fwkeyvalues=sponsorship%3D'+commercial_video['package'];a+=c}e.setAttribute('vdb_params',a)}i(e.vdb_Player)}else{var t=arguments.callee;setTimeout(function(){t(e,i)},0)}}(document.getElementById('vidible_1'),onPlayerReadyVidible); Cuban-American journalists with intimate knowledge of Fidel Castro’s cruelty encouraged Americans on Saturday not to whitewash the legacy of the deceased Cuban strongman. On ABC’s “Good Morning America” Saturday, Tom Llamas, whose parents fled Cuba as political exiles, urged those following the news of Castro’s death to view his brutal reign with clarity. “There is this tendency when world leaders die to kind of misplace this romanticism around some world leaders,” Llamas said. “But Fidel Castro is someone who was a tyrant. He was a killer.” Llamas recalled harrowing scenes of desperate Cuban defectors he witnessed while embedding with the U.S. Coast Guard off the coast of Florida. “Cuba at a distance may look beautiful. It may look mysterious. It may look nostalgic,” Llamas said. “But up close it is cracked, it is faded. And the people are hungry. And that should be the legacy of Fidel Castro.” Llamas’ comments were an implicit rejoinder to the growing popularity of Cuba as a tourist destination and re-examination of the U.S.’ historic policy of isolating the country due to its disagreements with Castro’s government. Thanks to the resumption of diplomatic relations, Americans’ opinions of Cuba are the highest they have been in 20 years, a Gallup poll shows. Progressives have long argued that the United States government and media have failed to acknowledge the massive gains in health care and education that Cuba experienced as a result of Castro’s takeover. They say that Castro must be viewed in the context of the harm the United States’ history of intervention on the island has caused and that America’s concern for governments’ human rights records is inconsistent. Llamas’ colleague Ron Claiborne alluded to the first of these points on Saturday morning, noting that Cuba has a low infant mortality and high literacy rate. Cuba, in fact, has a lower infant mortality rate than the United States, according to the World Bank. The island’s population is also virtually entirely literate. Llamas insisted that these accomplishments do not diminish the suffering ordinary Cubans living under dictatorship had experienced, with scarce food and economic opportunities. “I can remember night after night with my family stuffing envelopes with medicines, Kool-Aid, just so they can have calories ― and that’s what I remember,” Llamas said, his voice cracking as he fought back tears. Ana Navarro, a CNN contributor who immigrated to the United States from Nicaragua, invited Cubans and Cuban-Americans to tweet stories of family members who were imprisoned, beaten or killed by Castro’s regime for political reasons. She retweeted many of the responses. If u know someone killed, jailed, beaten by Castro's thugs, tweet me name & story, I will retweet. Ppl need to know he was a cruel despot.— Ana Navarro (@ananavarro) November 26, 2016 @ananavarro my grandmother's uncle, Jose Pujals, was a political prisoner under Castro for 27 yrs. Missed all of his kids' childhoods.— Evan (@evdeahl4) November 26, 2016 @ananavarro Samira Machado, beaten and arrested indefinitely for trying to escape.— mm (@mikeechado) November 26, 2016 @ananavarro my grandfather, Pablo Gonzalez, 6 years as a political prisoner.— Daniel Borges (@DBorgesCPA) November 26, 2016 @ananavarro My grandfather, Pablo Rodriguez Carazo killed by firing squad. My father, Gustavo Rodriguez-Perez spent 21 years in prison— Neyda A Borges (@Neyda_Borges) November 26, 2016 @ananavarro grandfather, Manuel Sanjurjo. Political prisoner for 20+ years. Professor at U of Havana. Half faced paralyzed from beatings— Vicki D. (@vicki_dee) November 26, 2016 Soledad O’Brien, an award-winning broadcast journalist and producer, whose mother is an Afro-Cuban immigrant to the U.S., shared her mother’s memories of Castro’s brutality on Twitter. She acknowledged, however, the reasons many previously marginalized Cubans, including Afro-Cubans, view Castro positively. My mom on Castro: "Batista would only kill you. Castro would kill you, arrest your spouse, make it impossible for your parents to work..."— Soledad O'Brien (@soledadobrien) November 26, 2016 Not really unbelievable. Post-Batista opened up opportunities for many Afro-Cubans. My mom's family remained poor--but got educated... https://t.co/3ELnQUc7HV— Soledad O'Brien (@soledadobrien) November 26, 2016 Difficult to explain on twitter, but many who fled Castro first were wealthier, ergo White. So it is actually a Thing. https://t.co/3ELnQUc7HV— Soledad O'Brien (@soledadobrien) November 26, 2016 Though Castro was also quite racist (my black relatives couldn't visit my hotel) he was seen as embracing blacks in a way Batista didn't https://t.co/3ELnQUc7HV— Soledad O'Brien (@soledadobrien) November 26, 2016 Legend and dictator. He was very complicated. And for many Cubans a hero (at first) bc he got rid of Batista and gave the finger to the US. https://t.co/xvO8Uiazga— Soledad O'Brien (@soledadobrien) November 26, 2016 -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.
