I recently had the pleasure of appearing on HuffPost Live with Marc Lamont Hill to discuss the Michael Br...
Whether it's 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in 2012, or 14-year-old Emmett Till in 1955, racial prejudice still informs access to adequate education, employment opportunities and advancement, well beyond the streets of Ferguson, Missouri.
The United States must ensure a viable multilateral alternative to its hegemony in the Middle East. It must use its super-power status to empower allies and regional players to assume greater authority.
New research finds that potential terrorists cannot be identified using a single socio-economic profile. Similarly, at the individual level, homegrown terrorists are not driven by just one or even a prevalent set of motivations.
President Barack Obama is at last signaling that he may be ready to reverse one of his most foolish and perplexing stances. That is his refusal to strike against ISIS in Syria because it would aid the Assad regime in continuing to exist.
To confront these metastasizing horrors a new treaty organization is needed: RNTO -- the Rational Nations Treaty Organization.
Ironically, Speaker Boehner resorted to the American justice system to sue President Obama, the very system he has worked relentlessly to underfund for indigents. Instead of suing Obama, he should start fixing the system he and his colleagues broke.
The problem is that for most circuses, after a couple of weeks, they move on. But in our American Circus, the Republican ideology and clowning will stick around indefinitely unless we hire new performers who want the show to go on!

The Justice Department's relentless pursuit of James Risen, and its refusal to recognize a qualified, first amendment-based, testimonial privilege for journalists, are serious mistakes. Now would be a good time for President Obama to correct those mistakes.
The claims of President Obama and Attorney General Holder that they seek justice in the death of unarmed teenager Michael Brown by a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri, have a hollow ring.
Apparently U.S. history began when Barack Obama was inaugurated. In case you were unaware, he is evidently the first president to take vacations; he's the first president to play golf; he's the first president to be photographed without a suit or tie; and he's the first president to routinely use a teleprompter.
The world must welcome fruitful and sustained negotiations between Tehran and Washington to assuage concerns over Iran's nuclear program, prevent an unnecessary and utterly destructive conflict in the Middle East, and test the power of diplomacy in resolving international crises.
I found three of Duncan's statements particularly ironic. He wrote about his continuing commitment to a "spirit of flexibility," flexibility that is completely lacking in Race to the Top mandates.
