Understanding Trump

George Lakoff | July 22, 2016 | Politics
Why does Donald Trump publicly insult other candidates and political leaders mercilessly? Quite simply, because he knows he can win an onstage TV insult game. In strict conservative eyes, that makes him a formidable winning candidate who deserves to be a winning candidate.

The Sugarcoated Language Of White Fragility

Anna Kegler | July 22, 2016 | Impact
For a while now, I've been thinking about how terms like "white privilege," "inclusion" and "unconscious bias" all sound just... too nice. Don't they seem a little on the pleasant side for words used to address a system of racist oppression?

Trump and Pence: The Wrong Equation For America

Leopoldo Martínez | July 21, 2016 | Politics
When so much darkness seems to be surrounding our world, Donald Trump and Mike Pence would not only be the wrong equation for America, but more importantly, they would fail to add up to the dreams and hopes that our founders envisioned for our country.

Trump's Wall Is Destroying My Family

William Dameron | July 21, 2016 | Politics
I support your right to vote for whoever you choose, but that does not mean I will not be hurt by it or that our relationship will not suffer from it. My hope is that after the election is over, the wall between us will be torn down, but my fear is that it never will be.

The Dirty Lie That All Lives Matter

Kelly A Scaletta | July 19, 2016 | Politics
Do you agree with the way the system as it currently is? If so, by definition, you are a racist because you are promoting the continuation of institutional racism. If not, then it's OK to admit it. Black lives should matter. And they don't.
