This website in no way claims to represent the San Francisco Mission District. Titled this, because I've lived here for 25 years, and am doing a film with people that live here. THIS SITE IS PART BAND: MY NAME IS JOE, PART WRITING BY OUTSIDERS, PART BEGINNING OF MOVIE.

MUST VISIT WEBSITES:
A great portal of progressive to left articles and site writers. Everything you need daily here. Though I hate the new format. I despise it with a passion.
Hundreds of thousands of people monthly go to Alexander Cockburn's (RIP) site for a reason. Cogent and respected left analysis from around the world. With no click bait or crap. Much you will raise an eyebrow about, but much more you will be informed about.
nakedcapitalism.com Yves Smith, the author of must read Econned created one of the most import finance and political sites in the USA. The daily links page alone with give you an international view unsurpassed by any other USA site. The commentators are from the top 10% finance experts sounding alarms, and from us. An enlightening and enraging mix of fact and opinion.
A wealth of in-depth articles about the USA militarization and increased drone bombing of Africa, among many other important subjects. Though funded by the Nation magazine, it tells the truth about the democrats. And the whole shebang. Serious journalism and research. No click bait or fun. Just real writing.
The best LEFT 'african american' centered site. Glenn Ford, Margaret Kimberley, and others never coverup black leadership fealty to corporations, and called Obama for what he was back in the 2007 primary. And of course, not lacking in calling out white liberals that use their moral outrage as hypocritical patronizing plays to blacks.
