Meanwhile, at the Jersey Shore...

A mechanical failure that allowed some untreated wastewater into the Atlantic forced the closure of the ocean in Wildwood Crest Monday.

The ocean in Wildwood Crest is closed from Miami Avenue through Jefferson Avenue — more than a half-mile stretch of beach — due to a malfunction at a water treatment facility owned by Cape May County.

Wildwood Crest Mayor Don Cabrera said he received a message from the Cape May County Municipal Utility Authority (CMCMUA) Monday morning stating a mechanical malfunction occurred in the sodium hypochlorite disinfection system at the CMCMUA’s Seven Mile Treatment Center and discharged one mile off the shore through the Jefferson Avenue outfall line.

If you're not confused enough, 
wuddya think of these folks?


A black transgender woman wanted to be heard, but the white men wanted to celebrate.
The scene at New York City’s Stonewall Inn on Saturday, as reported by multiple witnesses on social media, showed how long-simmering tensions between transgender women of color and white gay men have boiled over during the celebration of World Pride and the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall uprising. The unidentified woman wanted to address the crowd inside the Greenwich Village gay bar where patrons fought back against police harassment 50 years ago, birthing the LGBTQ movement. She arrived unannounced and disrupted a drag show, drawing an unfriendly response at first. The crowd eventually warmed and she was given the microphone and spoke for 12 minutes.

“She read the names of the black trans women who died. Facts about them. Their obituaries. She called on everyone in the bar to help. I would like to say the audience was respectful, but there was quite a bit of chatter and a few jeers,” witness Aspen Eberhardt, finance manager of the gay rights group PFLAG, wrote on Twitter.

For many gay men, this weekend’s celebration is about finally being able to live their true lives, unafraid to declare who they love and being grateful for achieving virtual equality, at least in places like Greenwich Village, where the rebellion began.

But many transgender women of color, representing the T in the LGBTQ community, have seized the moment to air their grievances, such as suffering from higher levels of unemployment and homelessness as their cisgender gay and lesbian brethren.

JEEZIS H. FRIGGIN' CHRIST.

If you were wondering where I am politically, this is it.

Speaking of politics, they still haven't gotten their shit straight.

On this day in 1964, U.S. President Lyndon B. Johnson signs into law the historic Civil Rights Act in a nationally televised ceremony at the White House.

In the landmark 1954 case Brown v. Board of Education, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that racial segregation in schools was unconstitutional. The 10 years that followed saw great strides for the African American civil rights movement, as non-violent demonstrations won thousands of supporters to the cause.

Memorable landmarks in the struggle included the Montgomery bus boycott in 1955—sparked by the refusal of Alabama resident Rosa Parks to give up her seat on a city bus to a white woman—and the “I Have a Dream” speech by Martin Luther King Jr. at a rally of hundreds of thousands in Washington, D.C., in 1963.
