          Indigenous Leaders Want Pope Francis To Rescind Bull Justifying Imperialism
    
          September 25, 2015
    
          Pope Francis has apologized for the "grave sins" committed "against the native peoples of America in the name of God." And he voiced his support for indigenous rights during his speech to Congress. But some indigenous leaders are asking the pope to take actions to rescind and repudiate the Doctrine of Discovery, which provided religious justification for European colonial conquest.

          Constitutionally, Slavery Is Indeed a National Institution
    
          September 25, 2015
    
          Whether or not the words “slave” or “slavery” appear in the text of the Constitution, they dominate its spirit. Slavery profoundly altered the four months of Constitutional debate with respect to how slaves would be counted for apportionment, how often the census would be taken, how a president would be elected. By the time the Constitution was signed on September 17, 1787, slavery had indeed become a national institution.

          VW’s Cheating Proves We Must Open Up the Internet of Things
    
          September 25, 2015
    
          As the Volkswagen case shows, the more trouble caused by closed-off code embedded in an ever-increasing number of physical objects, the more the makers of those objects will struggle to shield themselves from calls for transparency. When code inflicts real harm, such as Volkswagen’s polluting cars, the creators of that code must be held accountable. It’s time to start demanding that smart things open up.

          96% of NFL Players Have Brain Damage
    
          September 25, 2015
    
          New evidence confirms brain disease is widespread among former NFL players. But so far, the increased awareness and concern about concussions hasn’t impacted the NFL’s bottom line. In fact, the NFL is more popular than ever — the opening weekend of the 2015 season was the most-watched ever.

          Is Solidarity Forever ? Proposed UAW Contract Fails to Meet Worker Expectations 
    
          September 25, 2015
    
          Autoworker expectations for the 2015 UAW/Big Three contracts were to end the lower-tier wage that the union agreed first agreed to in 2007, at the time of the economic crisis. Over the last decade the higher-tier workers lost four dollars an hour to inflation and have been looking for a raise, and perhaps a restoration of the Cost-of-Living-Adjustment (COLA) that had been suspended.

          Hoodie
    
          September 25, 2015
    
          A gray hoodie will not protect her son from rain or cold, writes Massachusetts poet January Gill O'Neil, but a mother's fears for "the darkest child/ on our street" express a deeper threat from the outside as color and race threaten the safety of the young.
