What African American doesn't have a story, where some unknown guard challenged you or followed you out of the store. What about the annoying stores that make you pull out the receipt on the way out the door, and have the security guard ravage through your purchased goods?
A plea to the banks: Do "give back" in philanthropy. But also, please: Give us back a financial system that we can trust. Less penance after the fact, more virtue before. It will make for better business and for honest philanthropy.
The folks making economic policy in Washington are getting ever more resistant to evidence. As we approach the sixth anniversary of the downturn with no end in sight, the nation has been treated to the perverse spectacle of our Treasury Secretary celebrating the sharp drop in the deficit.
