Mods: I'm posting this in QFOS because of the fundie black adoption connection. If you find it belongs in a different forum, please move. So Rachel Dolezal, who identifies as black, is back in the news because she is broke, on the brink of homelessness and the only jobs she gets offered are in reality TV and porn. This should be empowering for her, as her situation is identical to that of any person of color who has been caught up in a scandal and/or convicted of a crime. She does finally have a publisher for her memoir, but I think all the good spoilers are in this Guardian article. https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2017/feb/25/rachel-dolezal-not-going-stoop-apologise-grovel?CMP=twt_gu It's a fascinating read mainly because RD is a composite of so many of the QFOS subjects from the Nauglers to the Pearls to the adopters who save black children for the lord. From her unattended home birth to the modest clothing, growing up foraging and helping maintain the homestead, having the devil beaten out of her, raising her 4 younger adopted siblings after her mother took to bed with self-diagnosed CFS. . .You get the picture. Add in a generous helping of patriarchy, and I'm actually at the point of feeling sorry for RD.

Any other runners in here? What are you training for? What kind of training plans are you following? Right now I'm signed up for a 10 mile trail race this Saturday, and next Monday evening I have a 5K. This will be the first time in over a year I've entered races with a solid training base, and I'm curious to see where my fitness level is at post-injury. But my goal is to run the Arizona Marathon next January, and right now I'm more or less building a base to start training for that race in September. I plan on using a plan that maxes at 50 miles a week. I'm a bit concerned about my plantar faciitis and if I can handle that level of training, but I think as long as I stay on top of my stretching/icing I can get through it.

Dozens of mormons are planning a mass resignation from the church tomorrow. The reason why they are doing it comes from the church's political activism against gay marriage, teachings that conflict with science or are perceived to be racist or sexist, and inconsistencies of explaining their own history especially when it comes to polygamy. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/06/2 ... 37877.html
I have heard many conflicting sources about the Mormons and race. Is it true that in the book of Mormon that God punishes the Native Americans by darkening their skin? I have also heard this is a misrepresentation of Mormon belief/ What is the real story
http://iblp.org/iblp/news/2011/11/001/ Followed a link from the David loves Priscilla thread and found this in IBLPs news page about the Romania trip. You would think that Gothard would know that Gypsy is racial slur. It is the Rroma equivalent of N*gg*r and is very offensive. Idiots.
