I don't think so, unless it's some Free State Project thing that popped up recently. Otoh, I've heard about Vermont's secession movement for a while.
He was responding to Citizen Coriat who, while responding to the alternate timeline premise, widened it out a bit and mentioned slavery in other times and places. Citizen Dunkerson responded about the Dark Ages. He was probably taken aback when you suggested that he had a rose-colored view of post-slavery conditions for black people because he thought he was just talking about the slavery retards technological development trope in general.
Or at least that's how it looks to me and I've been stoned out of my mind for most of this conversation.
Article that showed up on my Facebook feed when Comrade Samnell and a comrade in New York shared it at the same time!
It's pretty long, haven't read the whole thing yet, but it goes pretty well with the chapter discussing "black matriarchy" I just re-read in bell hooks.
Still working on The Dragon (almost done--had an interesting evening in Brooklyn where I read aloud to La Principessa the scene where Cija and Smahil are joined in incestuous union; "That's terrible writing" she commented at one point) and the Irish fairy tale book (from which I learned why salamanders are a monster in Dungeons and Dragons). Finally got around to re-reading Ain't I a Woman: Black Women and Feminism, which is just as pleasant as I remember it being. [Shudders]

there are more than a few fans who have pointed out that shub niggurath could be a backhanded slur, given the authors well known bigotry(I will be relieving myself next to a typed letter the author wrote in roughly 24 hours, hopefully). I don't think this is the case, but I wouldn't be surprised if it was.
I've peed there, too!
In general, though, I've found that info-dumping socialist internet articles onto a fantasy role-playing game website to be not as much fun ever since I started actually meeting more and more authors of said socialist internet articles.
Like, this one:
I met this guy a couple of months ago at a public meeting La Principessa and her comrades held at the Astoria Historical Society about Greece and SYRIZA a couple of days after Tsipras (the Greek Bernie Sanders?) stabbed the masses in the back. And he had the exact OPPOSITE position that he argues for in this article. As a matter of fact, within the following month, I watched him get into an epic Bernie Sanders Facebook debate with one of my NH comrades and one of my southern comrades, whom Comrade Kaufman went on to denounce as a "sexist piece of shiznit" because the former admitted to having frequented a Hooters a couple of times.
I mean, with endless entertainment material like that, I hope you all can forgive me for being lax in my posting of late.
Off to Brooklyn, huzzah!, with copies of Jane Gaskell's The Dragon and Irish Fairy and Folk Tales by Yeats, which I scored off Comrade Curtin, for the bus ride. Huzzah, huzzah!
(Even more huzzah-worthy, La Principessa shyly informed me that, at thirty-eight years old, she has now purchased her SECOND outfit of skimpy, see-through, bedtime wear. Will we be watching the second season of Game of Thrones this weekend? I know not, but, HUZZAH!!!!)

I would've gotten a higher score, but I am getting old and am a Luddite. None of the questions about the internet made any sense to me. FLAC? kbp? bitrate? I know not what these things mean!
And, yes, all of the nasty snobbish things were from when I was younger and stupider and worked in a used record store.

Here's the blurb: "Despite its grim title, the Great Dismal Swamp is an exciting wildlife refuge, home to 112,000 acres of forest, a 6,300-acre marsh and hundreds of species of plants and animals. It is common to encounter the white tailed deer along the trails of the forest; less commonly seen residents include the bobcat, river otter, black bear, southern flying squirrel and ground hog.
Make the otter a dire weasel, give the ground hog vorpal bite and it should be good to go. There's some kind of monstrous flying squirrel in the old 1st edition Monster Manuals isn't there?
Going through boxes of books the other night, I found and started re-reading my copy of Gerald Early's One Nation Under a Groove: Motown and American Culture. Which I always thought was weird because, obviously, the title is a Funkadelic song and they were never on Motown. Even weirder, the first chapter is mostly about Frank Sinatra.
From Urizen's Facebook page:
A bit late, but interview with Michael Moorcock in The New Statesman (that's some kinda commie rag, ain't it, Limey?) about The Whispering Swarm which was pretty interesting and given the clickbait (he only talks about J.R.R. for one paragraph) title:
IIRC, Sherlock thought Dupin was a rank amateur.
