Lindsey Graham Is Being Boosted by a Tea Party Group That Has Always Hated Him

It’s no secret that Sen. Lindsey Graham is in the fight of his political life in the closing days of his campaign to win reelection to the U.S. Senate.“I’m getting overwhelmed,” Graham begged on-air with Fox News’ Sean Hannity last month, as his Democratic rival Jaime Harrison brought in a record-shattering $57 million in donations to unseat him. “Help me—they’re killing me money-wise.

Henny dropped his latest project in July of this year and I recently took the time to sit down and listen to his 12 track body of work which features fellow Kali Boy, Dirk Dig. Along with Penny, Alize Ali, Nathan Giguiere, Classik Mussik, Vonnie and E.M.A. But before we get into this, I need to give this man and his design team props for ...

Startups run by women of color need money from investors, not empty platitudes

Stephanie Lee is CEO of SELFMADE, a new personal care brand. s What women of color don't need is another white person saying "Yes, Black Lives Matter" or "our company rejects racism." What we need is more investors willing to ask: what can I do to change the system? Dedicating 15% of a venture fund is a platitude, a pat on the head, particularly when you consider that 46% of the country are people of color. This current environment also stifles economic growth and chokes off the true innov...

Why campaigns should pivot to friend-to-friend and other network-based approaches to rally voters during the pandemic

Hinterhaus Productions/Getty Images The pandemic has presented unique challenges to mobilizing voters, as many campaigns previously relied on in person, door-to-door, and phone campaigns to increase voter turnout.  Tactics like texting, mailing, and using shameful messages aren't as persuasive as campaigners think,  says Lisa García Bedolla, a social science researcher and professor of education at UC Berkeley...

We just got a disappointing preview of how Trump's legacy is going to be sanitized

President Donald Trump holds up his facemask during the first presidential debate. Julio Cortez/AP Photo The president's most ardent critics in the pundit sphere nonetheless wished him well in the wake of his diagnosis — then were surprised when his behavior didn't change. Even as commentators from Mehdi Hasan to Rachel Maddow prayed for a speedy recovery, the victims of the president's policies continued to suffer. That reflexive reaction to Trump's illness shows the lengths to which the ...
