          Reading &quot;Politics in a Time of Crisis&quot; - A View from the Left
    
          June 21, 2017
    
          Podemos has created a new form of struggle based in large part on the ideas of people working in the tradition of Gramsci.  Iglesias argued that as the broad mass of people were not engaging in politics through the existing parties, the left had to go where the people were. This was a war of ideology and of position.

          Jay Z: For Father&#039;s Day, I&#039;m Taking On the Exploitative Bail Industry
    
          June 21, 2017
    
          Carter, known as Jay Z, is a lauded recording artist, philanthropist and father: "When black and brown people are over-policed and arrested and accused of crimes at higher rates than others, and then forced to pay for their freedom before they ever see trial, big bail companies prosper. This pre-incarceration conundrum is devastating to families."

          Melissa Harris-Perry: How to Save the N.A.A.C.P. From Irrelevance
    
          June 21, 2017
    
          Today, the N.A.A.C.P. carries the weight of history and burden of bureaucracy. But it does not seem willing to shed blood, literally, or in terms of the uncomfortable work that characterizes effective activism.
