Cali Bi-Partisan Politics

Schwarzenegger, Villaraigosa Forge an Unlikely Partnership
/The two politicians find common ground in a mutually beneficial relationship that could pay off at the polls...

/"We genuinely get along," Villaraigosa said of Schwarzenegger during a break from a packed schedule of meetings with legislators. "He's been very supportive of my administration."

/Villaraigosa, who took office 10 months ago and is limited to two terms, faces reelection in 2009, a little more than a year before the 2010 gubernatorial election. Those closest to the mayor say his ambitions extend far beyond City Hall. Friends and colleagues alike wonder how high he may rise, even throwing around job titles in idle conversation: Gov. Villaraigosa? Sen. Villaraigosa? Cabinet member Villaraigosa?

"Everyone knows that Antonio has a bright future and is going to go somewhere else," said City Councilwoman Wendy Greuel. "The question is, where?"

Villaraigosa isn't telling, at least not yet. When asked if he wanted Schwarzenegger's job, he responded: "Who would want to be governor when you can be the mayor of Los Angeles? This is a great job."

I'm all for PRESIDENT VILLARAIGOSA.

Little bit ago, there was a protest at UCLA re: affirmative action, the same day as a LA Mayor's election debate. Villaraigosa was the only candidate to call for the students to be heard, and prevented their arrest which I found pretty damn cool.

Bi History Moments: Anything That Moves, Spring 1994 (bisexual manifesto and cover)

Anything That Moves was a literary, journalistic, and topical magazine published in the United States from 1990 to 2002.[1] It was created as an expansion of the San FranciscoBay Area Bisexual Network (BABN) newsletter by BABN member, Karla Rossi, in collaboration with bisexual and bi-friendly editors, writers, and artists to become a full 64-page magazine with an international subscriber base. The complete title of the magazine, Anything That Moves: Beyond the Myths of Bisexuality, was purposely chosen for its controversial nature, while its tag line indicated a clear intent to challenge stereotypes of bisexual identities and behaviors. The magazine took its name from the stereotype depicting bisexuals as willing to have sex with "anything that moves".[2] The magazine's mission was to confront and redefine concepts of sexuality and gender, to defy stereotypes and broad definitions of bisexuals and to combat biphobia. - Wikipedia

No Apologies for Queer White Tears - 2016 BlaQOUT Keynote

No Apologies for Queer White Tears By Faith Cheltenham Delivered as a keynote address to the 2016 BlaQOUT Conference at UC Riverside on April 9th, 2016.
Black girl drinking White People Tears Gif White tears is a term that has a startling effect on white folks. Developed over time to describe the phenomenon of white people being upset at the very act of discussing race, it’s evolved into a funny yet, extremely effective way to describe white people’s discomfort in discussing the very racism they perpetuate.
One of the earliest articles available online about white tears written by a person of color is the 2007 College Student Affairs Journal article “When White Women Cry: How White Women’s Tears Oppress Women of Color” by Mamta Motwani Accapadi. In the article, Accapadi describes a case study of a white woman bursting into tears when being pressed by a woman of color about diversity resources at the college that employs them both. Instead of working on the issues affecting students, the c…
