"State Violence, Legitimacy, and the Path to True Public Safety"

The title of this post is the title of this new commentary authored by David Kennedy that was one of my very favorite reads this week.  The piece is mostly about police reform and is quite lengthy, but its worth the time (and even a re-read).  Among the many virtues of the piece is the reminder that if — I fear I should say when — we see a considerable spike in crime in the coming months, increased criminality may well primarily reflect decreased trust in law enforcement by the community, not de...

California ‘Surge’ Hospitals Are Costly, But How Much?

SACRAMENTO (AP) – With coronavirus cases rising fast, California is planning to keep open several makeshift hospitals that have seen few patients but cost a bundle – in one case more than $4 million to prepare and staff a facility that only treated two people over nearly two months. That hospital, at the Porterville Development Center, is being kept open along with two others – one in Southern California and another in the San Francisco Bay Area. Also staying open is an 80-bed medical tent to he...

Newsom Warns California Officials To Enforce Health Rules

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Gov. Gavin Newsom warned local elected officials on Friday they risk state sanctions if they don’t enforce health orders as the coronavirus pandemic worsens, while about 200 state inspectors fanned out to look for violators over the long holiday weekend. “A local government that refuses to abide by, ensure compliance with, or take enforcement action against noncompliance with these statewide public health directives, or that takes action that is otherwise incongruent with thes...

This Deep Red State Admits: We’re in Deep COVID Trouble

The mayor of Tupelo, Mississippi, can’t find just one thing to blame for a resurgent coronavirus ravaging his state these days. But he’s clear that it starts at the top. To Jason Shelton, the approach taken by President Donald Trump, and the politicizing of the pandemic, is where the problem began. Then it trickled down to the president’s followers, like the state’s GOP governor, who Shelton described as having emulated Trump’s behavior and words toward COVID-19 during the public health crisis. ...

Over the course of a few months we’ve talked in small and large groups on Zoom and Facetime. We have laughed, planned protests, organized petitions, and lamented all the ersatz virtue signaling with kente cloth and black squares. We do all this as we wait for the nation’s racial amnesia to return. In my inner circle, we don’t expect change because there is a...

California Creates ‘Strike Teams’ To Enforce Virus Limits

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — California is creating “strike teams” from 10 state agencies to enforce guidelines designed to slow the spread of the coronavirus, Gov. Gavin Newsom said Wednesday. He said the teams would “go after people that are thumbing their nose, that are particularly being aggressive, reticent to do anything.” He singled out bars, restaurants, meat packing plants and other facilities that he said may be putting employees as well as customers at risk. The teams include representat...

Why college reform will promote racial equality

I was very active politically in the 1960s, 70s, and the early 80s. Life became more difficult in the late 1980s with the arrival of a third child, and as I focused to publish enough to get tenure in a large Midwestern university. Today, as I look back on that time, I struggle with two perspectives about current anti-racist activism and about a continued anti-racist struggle in the academy. One of them is to believe that the current political reckoning over racism in the United States is differe...

Most Californians Live in Areas With Troubling Virus Numbers

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Nearly three-quarters of California’s 40 million residents live in counties experiencing concerning coronavirus trends, Gov. Gavin Newsom said Monday in vowing stepped-up enforcement of health orders and, if things don’t improve, more restrictions. His comments came a day after he ordered bars to close in Los Angeles and six other counties and suggested eight other counties do the same on their own. By Monday afternoon, three of the state’s largest — San Diego, Riversid...

Most white parents don’t talk about racism with their kids

Though race and racism are at the top of Americans' public discussion, most white parents don't talk about those issues with their kids.Research on how white parents discuss race with their children is sparse. However, past research has shown that conversations about race, much less racism, are rare, even when these issues are highly visible – for example, during the Ferguson protests in 2014.One study found that even though 81% of white mothers believed it was important to have such discussions...

Black Activists Wonder: Is Protesting Just Trendy for White People?

NEW YORK -- Cherish Patton recalled springing into action when a friend sent her a message that a New York City police officer had grabbed a petite protester by her hood and had flung her to the pavement.Patton, who has organized several Black Lives Matter protests, posted a plea on social media for help identifying the officer. She also called her friend for details on the protester, who had been whisked to the emergency room. "Oh, it's Michelle," her friend told her."Wait, white Michelle w...

"You have to humanize the protest and the struggle. If you don’t have the faces of the protesters in 1968 in Prague..."

"... you don’t have a story. If you don’t have the people trying to take down the wall in Berlin in 1989, you don’t have a story. If you don’t have the faces of the protesters in Tiananmen Square, you don’t show to the rest of the world the reality of the situation."Said Eric Baradat, a photo editor, quoted in "Face of a Dissident As images from protests circulate online, some fear that individuals will become targets" (The Cut (NY Magazine).Consider this:“Six young men died within the first 4 y...

BIPOC summer camps

Most summers, millions of US children head off to spend a week, a month, or the whole summer attending camp, where they’ll enjoy the restorative power of nature, learn new skills, strengthen friendships, and hopefully build upon a lifelong relationship with the outdoors. The problem is, these camps are not representative of the country as a whole. “Only about four percent of campers in America identify as Black or African-American, even though we make up 13 to 14 percent of the population,” ...

Ferguson's first black mayor takes office as nation confronts racism

Ella Jones never planned to be a politician. Now, after being elected as the first black mayor of Ferguson, Missouri -- just years removed from the protests that followed the death of Michael Brown -- she finds herself at the helm of a city still dealing with its own painful past as the nation contends with systemic racism and police brutality.

Time to consider disbanding police departments in Texas (and no, I'm not calling to "abolish" police)

Grits has been thinking a lot recently about the barriers to meaningful police reform in Texas and ways around them. Chief among those barriers is the state civil service code governing most larger police agencies and various police-union contracts authorized by it. Both the civil service code and those contracts include provisions making it difficult to fire police officers who engage in misconduct and, in the case of the contracts, may lock in certain employment and spending levels that thwar...

Inside one reporter's experience from Ferguson to Floyd

CNN's Sara Sidner retched as she watched the video of George Floyd's last minutes. It was far from the first time she'd covered the death of an unarmed black man by police. And the vicious cycle made her wonder, when will it be enough? Will this be the time that the people, the Earth, and this country is moved?

The Merriam-Webster Dictionary has officially changed the definition of "racism."

On Thursday, June 4, 2020, a 22-year-old activist named Kennedy Mitchum reached out to the publishers of the Merriam-Webster Dictionary to express her frustration with their definition of the word "racist:" A belief that race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race. Mitchum felt this was inadequate to fully cover the scope of systemic issues and unconscious biases that affect race relations in Amer...
