Autistic Lives Matter: The Inexcusable Erasure Of Arnaldo Rios

Haley Moss | July 27, 2016 | Miami
The police said they wanted to protect Charles Kinsey from the Autistic man. They meant to "shoot the autistic guy." I wonder what "the Autistic man" is feeling and thinking.

I used this cartoon for when Hillary won Iowa, oh, so many months ago. Now it means even more since she has won the Democratic nomination. The first woman ever do to this.

Tim Kaine Speaks Spanish. Does He Want A Cookie?

Nelson Flores | July 25, 2016 | Latino Voices
I wonder why it is that his bilingualism is being celebrated while the bilingualism of the Latinx community continues to be policed and denigrated.

Understanding Trump

George Lakoff | July 24, 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.

Defaming Dallas

Laurence Leamer | July 19, 2016 | Politics
The murder of five police officers by a fanatic in the streets of the city last week risked defaming Dallas's image all over again. But that isn't going to happen. Dallas has handled this terrible situation as well as it could be handled. It's a model for all of us.

Alan Farago | July 18, 2016 | Politics
If I were President Obama, and you -- the reader -- were Florida Governor Rick Scott, and you asked me to declare a federal emergency of counties afflicted by toxic algae blooms, I'd be tempted to say the following.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg On Donald Trump: Unprecedented Or A Supreme Court Norm?

Barbra Streisand | July 15, 2016 | Politics
Strong, opinionated women, like "The Notorious RBG," are always criticized. She spoke what many people already feel about the utterly unqualified Donald Trump. Her comments deserve a deeper analysis beyond subjective punditry or sanctimonious Tweets.

Alexis Shaak | July 21, 2016 | Impact
I am an only child, but I have always had a fourth family member living with me, my mom, and my dad. No, it wasn’t another human or a pet, it was a pager. I grew up with first responder parents. My father is a volunteer firefighter and...

Natural Hair Creates A More Inclusive Beauty Standard

Jenell Stewart | July 12, 2016 | Black Voices
Collectively our voices are effecting changes in creating a more inclusive standard of beauty. Everyday that we learn more about our hair and document our experiences publicly is another day we support a Black woman who is nervous about finally coming into her own and accepting her natural hair.

Cuba's Journalists Missing in Action

Yoani Sanchez | July 7, 2016 | World
The rape of a woman, for which the athletes are presumed responsible, was not mentioned in the statement, which constitutes an act of secrecy, concealment of the truth and disrespect for the audience.

Sonia Queralt | July 6, 2016 | Miami
Vero is an Italian treasure tucked away in between buildings in a quiet part of downtown Miami. If you are not paying attention you could walk right by this place, and trust me you do NOT want to do that.

It's Time To Do Something About Prosecutors Who Break The Rules

John Thompson | June 30, 2016 | Politics
Jim Williams left me for dead. My family, my people, my community and I will never fully move on from that. No one could. I'm scared for others like me, who will be ripped to shreds by our system because they are poor and Black.

Orlando, We Are With You

Jamie Lee Curtis | July 3, 2016 | Queer Voices
The way that Orlando has come together -- uniting as one, supporting each other and taking care of the fallen and their families -- confirms everything I have always hoped about humanity, strength and the tenacity of the human spirit.

An Open Letter To A Gentrifying Property Developer

Yuliana Salinas | June 27, 2016 | Latino Voices
I hope that the next time you visit, email, or call a Latino family, you have a better speech prepared. "White" people are not the only people that deserve housing, and Latinos are not at the very least deserving of your unsolicited dry speech.
