As a biracial child, Lamaria Aminah has thought a lot about race for most of her 21 years. Growing up in the predominantly white city of Portland, Ore., she was one of the few black children in her school, though the gulf between her and her white classmates didn’t become apparent until she was about 9 years old. “The girls in my class were talking about hair, and how often they had to wash it,” Aminah said last week. “At the time, I had processed hair, and my mom told me to protect it.
Johnny Clegg wrote the soundtrack for the anti-Apartheid resistance in South Africa, with a Zulu backbeat and a racially diverse band that infuriated the white majority government as much as it inspired activists throughout the world.
The Weston family patriarch lays out the arrangement pretty clearly in the first scene of “August: Osage County,” Tracy Letts’ Pulitzer-winning tale of a seething clan that emphasizes the “dys” in “dysfunctional.”“My wife takes pills, and I drink; that’s the bargain we struck,” says Beverly Weston (Roger Hudson) to Johnna Monevata (Emily Gerhard), the home care aide he’s interviewing to help his wife, Violet, who has cancer.
@SenCoryGardner, Thks for yr sincere, I hope, call to oust Roy Moore if he's elected tomorrow, and I hope you oppose the plan to gut #NetNeutrality. Your vote for the tax bill was a blow against us. Please don't screw up again.
.@RepKenBuck, I am a fellow Republican, I urge you to oppose @AjitPaiFCC's plan to gut #NetNeutrality It is cruelest to your poorest and most vulnerable constituents, I'm already mad about your support for the venal tax bill. I will remember next year.

.@RepDLamborn, I am a registered Republican. Please oppose @AjitPaiFCC's plan to gut #NetNeutrality It will hurt the poorest and most vulnerable of your constituents. Do NOT align yourself with the cruel men who ignore the least of their brothers.
.@RepMikeCoffman, I'm a registered Republican. Net neutrality rules matter to me especially because a multi-tier system will screw over the poor. Don't be that guy. Vote to keep the internet free. I will remember next fall.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
