Still working on this video where Asian-Americans talk about racism. Here’s a clip on Patreon of a young guy who owns a nail salon, being remarkably honest about his own family, for those who support Scuffed News and Morning Belz.
“Nope. Science itself isn't ‘true’ it's a constantly refining process used to uncover truths based in material reality and that process is still full of misteaks.

About: I was a newspaper reporter for 14 years, most recently at the Minneapolis Star Tribune. I explained why my family left Minneapolis here. Now we live just outside Chattanooga and I work on Scuffed News, a project that either succeeds by July or will have to be abandoned. This is my newsletter. Please share it with anyone you think might enjoy it. And please consider supporting this work with your money on Patreon.
