@fernandodemaio  : “You must always remember that the sociology, the history, the economics, the graphs, the charts, the regressions, all land with great violence upon the body.” - Author and Journalist Ta-Nehisi Coates#NA360 

"I want a public world in which Ta-Nehisi Coates is free to make his arguments with as much potency as he possibly can," writes @DamonLinker . "But I also want a public world in which his critics can do the same without fear of crossing lines newly drawn."

I recently listened to an excellent interview of Ta-Nehisi Coates by @ezraklein  for his podcast and I can think of no better way to spend time on the Fourth of July than to listen to Coates' hopefulness. And the discussion of how we are struggle together for a more perfect union.

On this episode of Inc. Book Smart, Mansueto Ventures CEO @EricSchurenberg  talks to host @c_albertdeitch  about his Book Smart pick, Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates. Hear the full episode now:

Ta-Nehisi Coates on the theft of resources from the black community and what forms reparations might take.

“I hear a lot of people denigrate the protests in the streets by saying, ‘Yeah, but will they show up to vote?’ ” Ta-Nehisi Coates said. “I would say, ‘I’m glad you’re voting, but will you show up to protest?’ ”

@Secretoriginz  WATCHMEN was a direct response to Ta-Nehisi Coates's A Case for Reparations. That was the first time many people had heard of the Tulsa Massacre of 1921.

Ta-Nehisi Coates’s “Black Panther and the Crew” is a powerfully relevant superhero story about Black lives, police brutality, and US history

Way too much in this conversation for a tweet to do it justice, but here’s Ta-Nehisi Coates on the hope in this moment, nonviolence and the state, why 2020 is not 1968, the Colin Kaepernick test, police abolition, what riots are and aren’t, and much more.

"Enslavement reigned for 250 years on these shores. When it ended, this country could've extended its hallowed principles — life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness — to all, regardless of color," writer Ta-Nehisi Coates told Congress. "But America had other principles in mind"

Ta-Nehisi Coates criticizes Mitch McConnell over his comments on reparations: "For a century after the Civil War black people were subjected to a relentless campaign of terror, a campaign that extended well into the lifetime of Majority leader McConnell"

"It is impossible to imagine America without the inheritance of slavery." On this #Juneteeth , Ta-Nehisi Coates testified at the #reparationshearing  to discuss the case for reparations.

Here's Ta-Nehisi Coates on Kanye West championing a kind of freedom—"a white freedom, freedom without consequence, freedom without criticism, freedom to be proud and ignorant"—in the age of Donald Trump.

"Joe Biden shouldn’t be president," writer Ta-Nehisi Coates told @democracynow  in an interview last year. "If he ends up being the nominee, better him than Trump, but I think that’s a really, really low standard."

I loved this book discussion with Ta-Nehisi Coates. That the right envies the left’s cultural power, and the left envies the right’s political power, and so both sides feel like they’re losing simultaneously, is crucial to understanding politics right now.
