I suppose a more charitable explanation is that it is not taught and so it makes sense that people don’t know it.

A grim assessment of the voting rights landscape from @ElieNYC 

And then of course when it came to black artists...

I was with Hap and Leonard right up until that last five minutes of season 3.

Very good piece on how the blackouts in Texas last week were a direct result of the state government/regulators subservient relationship to the energy companies

Some people out here who think police murdering a black 12 year old with a toy gun is justified suddenly get really into forgiveness and grace when a white teen loses his chance go to Harvard.

Watching the Roy Moore re-endorsements I'm reminded of the many, many times I've seen white people on cable news arguing black culture is excessively tolerant of criminal behavior.

Good morning, Trump is demanding the arrest of his political rivals, Pence won’t commit to a peaceful transfer of power, and Republican Senator Mike Lee thinks “liberty” can exist without the ability of the people to freely choose their leaders.

When they say they’re willing to die for the economy what they mean is they’re willing to let you die for the economy.

"You don't have freedom of speech at your job", is weird for an admin arguing businesses can refuse gay customers on free speech grounds

Black writers spent five years saying what this was, where it came from, and where it could lead. Their critics snickered about “wokeness,” condescended from their columns, think tanks, and tenured positions, and lied to themselves thinking they’d never have to face it.

I personally saw Ferguson police use crushing force against protesters for much less than what the Nazis in Charlottesville are doing today.

That Chance tweet is an example of a larger problem, which is viewing the presidency as a vessel for your hopes and dreams rather than as a job that requires particular skills/talents/temperament/knowledge to do well

It's telling that resentment towards wealth in sports is always directed at black athletes and not the vastly wealthier franchise owners.
