One little detail in the fine print is that even though you can be anything you wish to be, in order to actually achieve it, you must compete against and beat out everyone else in the world who is also vying for that very same position.

Non-white people uphold and participate and support racism every day simply by existing, but they will never experience the privilege of whiteness existing in a system designed to keep white peoples on top.

Imagine how different the world would be if someone like Che Guevera became president of a powerful country and inspired others to new heights of justice and fairness? Well, that is what it is like having John Legere as CEO of a major corporation.

Sanding Down the Rough Edges of Capitalism Is Not Enough

Recall the stock market crash of 2008: when consumers are afraid, they don't buy products and they don't invest. As the impact of climate change gets worse, consumers may just stop spending. As temperature extremes worsen, they might just stay home.

Hal Donahue

Trump taps into the righteous anger of an electorate while misdirecting those voters to scapegoat our struggling veterans, military, federal workers, retired people, sick and challenged under the clever and nondescript term -- dependent class. The American worker does not deserve to be squeezed by its own government. If politicians like Senator Casey and Hillary Clinton cannot get their message across, extremists, like Trump, win.
