Dr. Seuss drew ''Cross-Section of The World's Most Prosperous Department Store" for "Judge" magazine in 1929

Dr Seuss known for children drawings also created mauy racist drawings, this one went for auction in California last May.    The 1929 color illustration for “Judge” magazine depicts a blatantly racist scenario and uses a slur to describe black people. It’s being auctioned for a minimum bid of $20,000.    In the four-panel drawing titled ”Cross-Section of The World’s Most Prosperous Department Store,” the artist depicts scenarios in which rich men can purchase items to make their lives more difficult. Dr. Seuss’ history of creating offensive caricatures isn’t a secret. His World War II depictions of Japanese people have drawn criticism for their portrayal of stereotypicial physical features and behaviors

There was a time in America when a TV couple like the Ricardo’s could not sleep in the same bed.     A time when different races couldn’t touch in the cinema and some people liked it that way.

First the Mayor and then the Vice Mayor ,Warren Allen  If you had to choose one of the Scandal’s for the foundation  of a Soap or Reality TV Show its Warren!    Delia Chacon, 45, said Warren created an atmosphere of “quid pro quo sexual harassment” between Aug. 26, 2013, and June 8 of this year.     Unlike Johnson, Warren’s  accuser Chacon had details, even went to his place in Oroville and knows many many  details about the Vice Mayor  and has accompanied Warren on many many trips.    Bravo and Lifetime could bring life to this story.

We’ve covered the Real Housewives of Atlanta for four seasons.  Good or bad, fans know Nene Leaks is not the one. She can chop up any challenger with her tongue.  But in Puerto Rico Claudia Jordan took down the Queen and didn’t break a sweat, leaving the sharp tongued Queen dizzy.  Within minutes the social media exploded, clips of the fight was repeated all over the country.  Fights broke out on Twitter and on You Tube.

Fans of Nene said she won, others said she was knocked out.     There are some who believe the Queen was responsible for Jordan’s exit. What ever happened.  Puerto Read Co was the number one story of the year

Big city fella, Born and Raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. Lived in New York (a part time New Yorker) for three years . I have lived in the Sacramento area since 1993. When I first moved here, I hated it. Initially found the city too conservative for my tastes. A great place to raise children however too few options for adults . The city has grown up, there is much to do here. The city suffers from low self esteem in my opinion, locals have few positive words to say about their hometown. visitors and transplants are amazed at what they find here. From, the grand old homes in Alkali Flats, and the huge trees in midtown, there are many surprises in Sacramento. Theater is alive is this area . And finally ,there is a nightlife... In.downtown midtown, for the young and not so young. My Criticism is with local government. There is a shortage of visionaries in city hall. Sacramento has long relied on the state, feds and real estate for revenue. Like many cities in America,Downtown Sacramento was the hub of activity in the area. as the population moved to the suburbs and retail followed. The city has spent millions to revive downtown. Today less than ten thousand people live downtown. No one at city hall could connect the dots. Population-Retail. Business says Sacramento is challenging and many corporations have chosen to set up operations outside the cities limits. There is vision in the burbs. Sacramento has bones, there are many good pieces here, leaders seem unable or unwilling to put those pieces together into. Rant aside, I love it here. From the trees to the rivers. But its the people here that move me. Sacramento is one of the most integrated cities in America. I find I'm welcome everywhere. The spices work in this city of nearly 500,000 and for the most part these spices blend well together. From Ukrainians to Hispanics and a sizable gay community, all the spices seem to work well here. I frequently travel and occasionally I will venture into a city with huge racial borders, where its unsafe to visit after certain hours. I haven't found it here. I cant imagine living in a community where there is one hue or one spice. I love the big trees, Temple Coffee House, the Alhambra Safeway, Zelda's Pizza, Bicyclist in Midtown, The Mother Lode Saloon, Crest Theater, and the Rivers. I could go on and I might. Sacramento is home.
