Harvard University’s Institute of Politics

This past summer, I read Atlantic Media journalist Ta-Nehisi Coates' new book Between the World and Me. To say it had a profound impact on me and the way I understand race relations in the U.S does not do the piece justice. I finished it with a dropped jaw.

We can hire more people tomorrow. We can invest in new ventures next week. Most of all, we can raise wages. These are choices people in the private sector can be making immediately--nothing is stopping us but our willful blindness to the crisis around us.

Chaker Khazaal

Let me be clear, I have no sympathy for the Muslim Brotherhood and would never cast a vote in their favor.
