“We never said he wasn’t. It’s just not what we’re leading with,” said Goyer. “When was Constantine in the comics introduced as being bisexual? How many years into the run? Ten, eleven, twelve years into the run? When he was first introduced, sexuality was not the big thing they were featuring. They didn’t even get into that, regardless of who he slept with, for a year or two.”

On the Monday July 28, 2014 6:00pm news I have partnered with UNIVISION on a project and the first part of a series on the Indian Child Welfare Act will air NATIONWIDE. This will be broadcast in spanish and then will be released on YOUTUBE and perhaps VIMEO after the MONDAY release time. If you are able, watch it on your local Univision affiliate station. Since this is broadcast in spanish it will reach audiences in Central and South America. This will make ICWA (This Indian Child Welfare Act) more of a global issue. To leak a little, it will discuss the Baby Veronica Case as well.
TUNE IN on MONDAY JULY 28, 2014.
(note: I am working on having it subtitled in american english which will come out in two weeks after the release)
Thank you to UNIVISION for partnering with me and another amazing researcher who many Native Adoptees in the "anthology" book CALLED HOME will be familiar with.
She also needs to be highlighted and is.

Enjoy!!

"We are confident we will prevail once again, and that the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board's divided ruling will be overturned on appeal. This case is no different than an earlier case, where the Board cancelled the Redskins' trademark registrations, and where a federal district court disagreed and reversed the Board," Raskopf said in a statement.
"The evidence in the current claim is virtually identical to the evidence a federal judge decided was insufficient more than ten years ago. We expect the same ultimate outcome here," Raskopf said in his statement.
