The story of how Italian immigrants went from racialized pariah status in the 19th century to white Americans in good standing in the 20th offers a window onto the alchemy through which race is constructed in the United States, writes @BrentNYT 

“The story of how Italian immigrants went from racialized pariah status in the 19th century to white Americans in good standing in the 20th offers a window onto the alchemy through which race is constructed in the United States...”

@BrentNYT  Italians who had come to the country as “free white persons” were often marked as black because they accepted “black” jobs in the Louisiana sugar fields or because they chose to live among African-Americans.

"I think Americans don't want the loudest voice in the room anymore – they've got that in the White House. I think they want someone that is tired of the noise and nonsense and wants to get things done." – Sen. @amyklobuchar  #RealTime

And @JonLemire , what was it that Eisenhower warned Americans of in his farewell address from the White House?

As president, here's my plan for LGBTQ+ Americans: ✅Establish a Chief Advocate for LGBTQ+ Affairs in the White House ✅Sign the Equality Act into law ✅Reverse the ban on trans service members ✅Make PrEP affordable and accessible

What exactly did saint Shep do? Condemn the concentration camps? Educate Americans that “family separation” is in fact genocide? Discuss the bitter realities of fascist meltdown? Save me from the anointing of another white dude as a savior when in fact he was an enabler

Unpopular opinion: how black, brown and white Americans treat each other is more important than whatever Trump said at a rally last night.

There is a push by some to say that "both sides" are to blame for the shutdown. I would agree. Both sides of Pennsylvania Avenue. The White House and the GOP leaders of the Senate. It's pretty clear that's how the majority of Americans see it.

Trump disinvites Eagles from White House - while millions of Americans hurt. Puerto Rico suffers. Allies fret. The planet warms. He uses our National Anthem to sow disunity in what's supposed to be the UNITED States of America. I think history will mark it as akin to McCarthyism.

It’s extremely troubling that a majority of Kavanaugh’s White House record is still hidden from the public. This is for a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court, a seat that can change history like with Brown v. Board and Obergefell v. Hodges. Americans deserve better.

In case you missed it: five of my colleagues and I are suing to get Kavanaugh’s White House documents released. Americans deserve answers about what the GOP is trying to hide from them.

The white supremacists and their bigotry do not represent our great country. All Americans should condemn this vile hatred. #Charlottesville 

Just a reminder that Republicans blocked us from subpoenaing Kavanaugh documents from his time at the White House and have been keeping a majority of his records from the public. Americans deserve better than a rushed process.

Americans were treated to a profane, insult-laden, often inappropriate monologue last night. But enough about the . How about the White House Correspondents Dinner?

The facts: →The GOP has control of the House, Senate & White House. →Trump was the one who ended DACA & opposed the bipartisan compromise brought before him. →The vast majority of Americans favor protecting Dreamers, funding CHIP & the government. Let’s do those things.
