'American Skin' explores race, policing and loss through a provocative lens

"American Skin" touches on raw nerves in the midst of a chaotic historical moment, which is ultimately the whole point.

There's a clear way for Joe Biden to fight for justice and show his commitment to the Black voters who put him in the White House

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden makes a stop at The Warehouse, a community center for teens in East Wilmington, on November 03, 2020 in Wilmington, Delaware. Drew Angerer/Getty Images Joe Biden was elected president in large part due to support from Black voters. Biden should pay back this trust from Black voters by fighting for racial justice and reforming the racist criminal justice system.

By Lew Whittington “On Imagination” is the opening poem in the Library of America’s “African American Poetry: 250 Years of Struggle and Song.” It was written by Phillis Wheatley in the mid-17th century.

Flugennock's Latest'n'Greatest: "MABA (Make America Brunch Again)"

From Mike Flugennock, DC's anarchist cartoonist - "MABA (Make America Brunch Again)" It's this kind of clueless queefage from rich-ass Hollywood knobs like Mark Hamill which perfectly illustrates the attitude of the French aristocracy and bourgeoisie just before the head-chopping started — at last, the Democrats are back in the White House; now we can stop pretending to care about the poor and the working class and go back to brunch again.

What’s at stake for Karen Bass could go beyond election

Rep. Karen Bass looks to defend the seat in Congress she has held for the past 10 years representing parts of Los Angeles against Republican opponent Errol Webber. Webber does not have any substantial fundraising effort or formal campaign to speak of, so the contest will likely not be much of a challenge for the 66-year-old Democrat in a predominantly left-leaning district. But there could be something bigger looming for the Congresswoman whose career this year catapulted into national promise. ...

Teach For America's congressional internship program is proof that the organization is more interested in prestige than actually helping students

Amanda Voisard/The Washington Post/Getty Images Teach For America is a nonprofit with a mission to "strengthen the movement for educational equity and excellence." But instead of focusing on students, Teach for America seems more focused on getting their alumni into the halls of power and building their influence. The perfect example of this is the congressional internship program, which sends TFA teachers to intern with lawmakers who push policies that hurt the very students TFA serves. ...
