          The Ever-Growing Gap: Failing to Address the Status Quo Will Drive the Racial Wealth Divide for Centuries to Come
    
          August 12, 2016
    
          The typical millionaire receives about $145,000 in public tax benefits, while working families get a grand total of $174 on average. In 2043, minorities will be the majority and the will have doubled. The lingering effects of generations of discriminatory and wealth-stripping practices have left black and Latino households far behind white families, and may impact their economic trajectories in the decades to come.

          At Freedom Square, the Revolution Lives in Brave Relationships
    
          August 11, 2016
    
          If, as Cornel West says, 'justice is what love looks like in public,' then Freedom Square is an embodiment of practicing justice....With grace, imagination and courage, Freedom Square offers a glimpse into a new future and is boldly showing the world how to make Black lives matter.

          &quot;Y&#039;all Take it From Here:&quot; Delegates from the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee Champion the Movement for Black Lives Lives
    
          August 11, 2016
    
          The reason for today's powerful and persistent insistence that Black lives matter is based on the irrefutable evidence throughout American history that Black lives have never mattered. Black lives that were enslaved for 250 years never much mattered beyond the kind of economic concern held for livestock. Black lives that suffered a hundred years of brutal segregation and discrimination following slavery's abolition never mattered until Black people raised their voices...

          &#039;History is Watching&#039;: Dan Rather Rips Trump in Epic Facebook Rant; Challenges Colleagues: &quot;This Cannot Be Treated As Just Another Outrageous Moment in the Campaign&quot;
    
          August 11, 2016
    
          "History is watching: - former CBS News anchor Dan Rather on Facebook rips Donald Trump's veiled assassination threat against his Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton. Trump in a bid to his followers, who also oppose gun control, said his "Second Amendment people" might be able to stop Hillary Clinton's appointment of Supreme Court justices. This is a new level of the GOP's war on women, where the right has fueled attacks on women and the murder of abortion providers.

          ‘We Triggered Something Epic’: An Interview with Naquasia LeGrand of the Fight for $15
    
          August 11, 2016
    
          "This movement is bigger than $15 and a union. This movement shows that no matter what’s going on in America, no matter what it is that we’re fighting for, if you want change for your city, for your community, for your country, we as a people can’t be silent anymore.

          1936: The Worst Olympic Games Ever (So far)
    
          August 11, 2016
    
          As the Olympic Games go, the reviewer says, it's time to ask the big question: which were the worst Olympics ever?  David Goldblatt's The Games is a history of the tarnished Olympics, from Avery Brundage to, yes, London 2012. The evidence shows indisputably that it was Hitler's Berlin games of 1936, which set the stage for spectacle and nationalist-racialist sentiment.
