March 13, 2020

Few in these United States had heard of Katherine Johnson, the gifted mathematician who finished high school and college at 18. How could we know when scientists are often stereotyped as old White men wearing white lab coats, with glasses sliding down their noses? You might not have known unless you’d picked up Margot Lee […]

The important word in ‘Democratic Socialism’ is ‘Democratic’

February 28, 2020

After the Nevada caucuses, Bernie Sanders is now the front-runner in the Democratic presidential race. In South Carolina, the next primary, former Vice President Joe Biden is the favorite, buoyed by his support among African American voters. But Sanders will come into the state with real momentum, having won the popular vote in each of […]


Rev. Barber’s Poor People’s Assembly and Moral March Will Be “Generationally Transformative”

February 20, 2020

“There’s no way we can inspire people to move with the normal politics that doesn’t fully address poverty. When you can work a full-time job at minimum wage and still not be able to afford a two-bedroom apartment anywhere in this country, that’s poor. And if we can’t see that and if we don’t acknowledge […]


Hair discrimination is alive and well

February 13, 2020

Andrew Johnson, a high school wrestler, was forced to submit to the humiliating act of having his dreadlocks shorn or have his New Jersey team forfeit their match to the opposing team. A gleeful White woman seemed too pleased to invade the young man’s person, and his team won, but at what price? When this […]

Detractor-in-Chief overstates economic progress

January 30, 2020

Donald John Trump has been impeached, and to let him tell it, that isn’t bothering him, and we’d believe him if he hadn’t posted more than 130 tweets in just one day. But his persistent overuse of the word “hoax,” both to refer to impeachment and to anything else he doesn’t like (see: climate change), […]

January 16, 2020

Why are so many White people afraid? Why is there terror in their eyes when they hear that by the year 2050 White people will be a minority in this country? I am here to tell all those concerned White people not to worry. When you become a minority we will never insist on you […]


Will money rule in the U.S. Presidential race?

January 10, 2020

Democrats started this Presidential campaign season with more than 20 candidates. Eventually, it dropped to about a dozen, with, so far, only five of those “qualified” to appear on the next debate stage. But debate performance doesn’t seem to matter much. Both Senator Kamala Harris and former Obama cabinet member Julian Castro having had excellent […]


Looking to 2020 — Put your vote to work!

January 1, 2020

If you work for a living but are somewhat up in the air about who to vote for in 2020 or for that matter, if you should even bother getting to that crowded polling place, I’d like to ask that you indulge me for a minute. Because I’ve got a story to tell you that […]
