Punk rock and Reagan led Jimmy Camp to a career in politics

Political operative /pəˈlidək(ə)l/ /ˈäp(ə)rədiv/: a person who works, through various means, toward achieving the ideological objectives of a particular party I’m often asked, “How did you become a Republican? You don’t look like a Republican.” It’s kind of a long story. Walking into the phone bank at Nason, Lundberg & Associates on any given night between 1988 and 1992, you wouldn’t think it was a political consulting firm catering to the likes of Orange County’s most powerful conservatives. It...

Campaign manager ‘chose democracy and politics’ and seeks the rebel heart

Campaign manager /kamˈpān/ /ˈmanijər/: whether paid or volunteer, someone who coordinates all the functions of a politician’s campaign for office. Call me rebel. Go ahead. Call me Harriet Tubman or Willie Velasquez. Call me Dolores Huerta or John Lewis. Call me operative, cynical consultant, political hack or numbers cruncher. Go ahead. At one time or another, all those labels have been slung at anyone who’s ever dared to slug it out in the body politic. In truth, a career in politics can be dry...

Nancy Pelosi and the hypocrisy of the elite: Gloria Romero

There are four quick lessons we little people can learn from Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s spa day in violation of local orders mandating the closure of such establishments due to COVID-19: Lesson One: Laws are for thee, not for me Lawmakers and government officials grant themselves privileges and exemptions from the rules they set for the rest of us. Days after a maskless Pelosi was exposed for hypocritically enjoying services at a spa ordered shut down to its own owners, worker, and the rest of us, i...

Staring down the known unknowns. Trump v Biden 2020

On the face of it, the social media performances of Donald Trump and Joe Biden point to a US 2020 presidential election victory for the incumbent president. As I argued during the 2016 election, social media allows us to observe millions of people interacting with the candidates, beyond the confines of traditional polling of a thousand or so individuals. As we know, polling was spectacularly wrong about Trump in 2016, and social media trends closer to the truth. And if we look at social media da...

Ten Keys to Everyday Anti-Racism

We are sisters—and the great-great-granddaughters of Caroline and Allen, who were born enslaved in the state of Alabama. As African Americans and moms to Black sons, we are heartbroken and sick about the level of anti-Blackness that permeates every aspect of American life. We feel the urgency of the moment and want to help convert this moment into a movement for meaningful change. We believe our voices matter and that we have something to share with the world as a way to offer healing to this cr...

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. ...

Biden May Lose the Moderates

When Barack Obama and Joe Biden took over the White House in 2008, they had run on an ambitious agenda that included many of the same policies that Vice President Biden now advocates. President Obama threatened to withdraw from NAFTA, repeal the Bush tax cuts at the top, opposed secret-ballot union elections (favoring so-called card check), and supported sweeping climate change legislation. Armed with a supermajority in the Senate, anything was possible.But when President Obama looked at the ree...

"Ask yourself: do I look like a radical socialist with a soft spot for rioters? Really?"

Joe Biden went to Pittsburg today, where he read a speech indoors. Here's the video. I can't tell if he has an audience. There's no engagement with any questioners. I don't really know how this is different from speaking from his own home, but it was presented in the press as an important occasion. The NYT says: "Joseph R. Biden Jr. on Monday issued a forceful rebuttal to President Trump’s misleading charges that he would preside over a country wracked by disorder and lawlessness...." I watched ...

Watch Bob Dylan Perform “Only A Pawn In Their Game,” His Damning Song About the Murder of Medgar Evers, at the 1963 March on Washington

Trauma is repetition, and the United States seems to inflict and suffer from the same deep wounds, repeatedly, unable to stop, like one of the ancient Biblical curses of which Bob Dylan was so fond. The Dylan of the early 1960s adopted the voice of a prophet, in various registers, to tell stories of judgment and generational curses, symbolic and historical, that have beset the country from its beginnings. The verses of “Blowin’ in the Wind,” from 1963’s The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan, enact ...

Black People Are Living Full, Rich Lives. We Should Celebrate That.

As a Black queer millennial, I’m often told I’m strong. For my mere existence alone is often said to be an act of resilience. I live in a world where people who look like me are being extrajudicially killed by cops on viral videos. A global pandemic is taking away my skinfolk more rapidly than any other population. And bigotry, H.I.V., gun violence, opioids, and poverty continues to disproportionately cut at the intersections of my Black queer community unforgivingly.Chadwick Boseman Became a Su...

Analysis: This John Lewis speech is still relevant 57 years later

In 1963, a young John Lewis arrived at the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom prepared to excoriate the Kennedy administration, which many racial justice activists viewed as lacking moral resolve in its approach to civil rights. The speech was so damning, though, that other leaders asked Lewis to tamp it down.
