"We are determined not to allow that fear and that hate to win," McNeil told the newspaper. "We keep going and keep loving on folks and keep offering that forgiveness and that hope that people are looking for." Former slaves A.J. Crawford and Buck Manning founded the mostly black church in 1871, naming it after the willow branches in the area, which sits just west of Waco. It has about 30 members.
Protesters saw things differently - with one speaker, Collin College professor Michael Phillips, describing the memorial as "a shrine devoted to a toxic faith." "We stand in ominous shadows," said Phillips, one of a handful of those addressing the diverse and low-key crowd. Only one protester carried a sign, reading "Celebrate Freedom, Not Slavery." The group hopes to prod City Council members to begin the process of having the 60-foot-high column removed.
The mysterious stranger rode in on a white horse, striking fear into the townsfolk just trying to enjoy their Whataburgers and fries on a starry Saturday night. It happened down in the south Texas city of Victoria, where, as the Victoria Advocate reported, nighttime found the man on horseback trotting into a busy Whataburger restaurant.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
