If there is anything we have learned in American history, no hoods of injustice has stopped the forward march of diversity.
The lack of debate over immigration does a disservice to our immigrant and Latino communities, and it overlooks the important role immigration reform plays in our nation's economic future.
This election has exposed an underbelly that has lingered undetected for too long. Any national light we may have has been obscured by the baskets that we ourselves have put over it; baskets like hatred, inequality, violence, intimidation, and more. In our worst moments this fall, we have become a shining example to the world of what not to be.
The tape of Donald Trump bragging about sexual assault, followed by the testimony of at least eight woman confirming he engaged in it, may have finally done what his year-long attacks on Muslims, Mexicans, the disabled, war heroes, the leadership of the U.S. military and oh so many others, along with his Putin bromance, had not yet done.
Much has been written about whether people of faith should or should not be supporting presidential candidate Donald Trump in the upcoming election. This much is clear: Trump's track record on topics that are typically valued by religious communities is dismal.
At this Wednesday's debate, moderator Chris Wallace has said that he'll ask the candidates questions about debt and entitlements, immigration, the economy, foreign hot spots, fitness to be president and one topic that has received far too little attention in this election cycle: the Supreme Court.

There is an excellent chance that when Republicans look back at the 2016 presidential election, this will be the week they'll point to when Donald Trump completely collapsed.
The meeting was effectively over. Betty, the incontinent German Shepherd, smiled at us, panting, from beside the roaming fan. She saw me see her and hobbled over, sticking her head between my legs for attention.
Hillary Clinton won’t be the only winner when Donald Trump and his fellow haters are defeated on Election Day (as looks increasingly likely). An...
Like so many Republicans, I can no longer stand silent while my Party's Presidential nominee continues his deplorable, and frankly dangerous, outbursts. There can be no more question: Mr. Trump does not embody the values that have made me a lifelong Republican.
Clinton would continue with the expensive, failed conventional wisdom that masquerades as U.S. foreign policy. Trump at least might challenge Washington's proclivity for war on occasion.
I would literally vote for any 35-year-old, American-born citizen who hasn't been convicted of a felony and who is able to function in polite society without groping women before I would vote for Trump because he can't even clear that bar.
