CHICAGO — When Picasso Russell meets with other runners, the conversation often turns to their gear — the newest, the warmest, the most comfortable.But for Russell and other black runners, another topic arises: what is safest to wear while training.“Culturally, humor is our way of dealing with things,” Russell said. “I might kind of passively say, ‘I can’t wear that black or that gray,’ or, ‘I can’t wear all black where I live.’ Or, ‘It must be nice to wake up that early and run when it’s pitch black at 5 or 6 in the morning.’“It’s almost a luxury you can run when there’s no daylight. It comes...
Taking a break from her usual trolling of Democrats on Twitter, Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) made a request from her followers to share their favorite verses from the Bible and -- as you can probably guess -- she was flooded with comments calling her out for her own transgressions while being urged to live the teaching of Jesus for a change.
After a simple "What's your favorite Bible verse?" ask, the gun-toting conservative lawmaker was deluged with an assortment of critical comments and creative non-Biblical responses.

Appearing on MSNBC on Sunday afternoon, Rep. Jackie Speier (D-CA) expressed disgust with Republican counterpart Marjorie Taylor Greene for her latest antics, calling the publicity-hungry Georgia conservative a "trainwreck" who has nothing better to do with her time in Congress.
Speaking with host Alex Witt, Speier was unsparing in her criticism of the Republican who was caught harassing Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) this past week.
"What do you make of the back and forth between Marjorie Taylor Greene and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez?" host Witt asked. "I mean, it's been described as menacing behavior by Marjorie Taylor Greene. Is there a sense that people aren't necessarily safe when they go to work?"
"Well, I think we're all safe when we go to work," the California Democrat began. "I think Marjorie Taylor Greene is a trainwreck and she continues to want to create theater and she throws a little temper tantrum if they don't want to play with her."
"I think Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez didn't want to play, and so that somehow made Marjorie Taylor Greene's day not complete because she didn't get the headline she wanted that she was then going to use to fundraise off of," she continued. "I mean it is a sick, sick situation when people will take action just to be able to use that little vignette to be able to raise money on it -- and that's what Marjorie Taylor Greene is doing. She has nothing else to do in Congress."

'Why are we not subsidizing guns?' OAN guest says white people deserve free guns to protect them from BLM
Conservative activist Rogan O'Handley argued over the weekend that the government should provide firearm subsidies so that people can protect themselves from "looting, violence and murder" that he blamed on Black Lives Matter.
O'Handley made the remarks while appearing on OAN, a conservative news channel.
"America owns more guns than 50% of the planet," O'Handley said. "There are more guns than people in this country. God bless the Second Amendment and our Founding Fathers. I am absolutely loving seeing these huge, huge gun numbers."
The conservative activist went on to praise first-time gun buyers who fear Black Lives Matter protests..
"People that have never owned a gun in their life are looking around and seeing BLM and antifa burning down courthouses, police stations... looting, violence, murder," he said. "And they're saying, you know what? Maybe I have to look at protecting myself and my family. Maybe I should start exercising my constitutional right to keep and bear arms."
O'Handley added: "And I will say I'm in the camp where I think we should actually have subsidies for gun ownership in this country. You know, we subsidize schools, housing, everything. Why are we not subsidizing guns? That's a constitutional right and one of the most important. Very happy to see these huge numbers."
