I'VE GOT #METOO BLOWBACK I had this story yesterday but it's certainly worth talking about it so we will today. Men in the workplace (at least a good number of them) are actively avoiding women in the workplace because of the #metoo movement.

Republican Governor Kay Ivey wore blackface in a skit WAY BACK in the 1960's. She has resisted Democratic calls to step down.
