          Why the World Series Is Tainted by Racism
    
          October 27, 2016
    
          Cleveland's baseball team flaunts the most spectacularly racist logo in professional sports. When the American League Championship series shifted to Toronto, a First Nations activist, Douglas Cardinal, went to Ontario court to bar the logo from being worn while the team played in Toronto, deeming the name and logo to be violations of the Ontario Human Rights code. Major League Baseball and the Cleveland Indians' front office sent 27 lawyers to challenge this.

          Latinos Are Changing The Politics Of ... Nebraska!
    
          October 27, 2016
    
          Organizing in Omaha and small towns with meatpacking plants is altering politics in this reddest of states. At the top of the city's power structure sit representatives of large corporations. The corporate elite has transformed the downtown, now brimming with office towers, condominiums and a redeveloped Old Market tourist mecca. Corporate domination has failed to transform the lives of Omaha's working-class families for the better, however.

          Defeating `Trumpism' - An Opportunity to Push the Nation - and Dems - Forward
    
          October 27, 2016
    
          How we vote on November 8 will be the first step in a long process of building a new economic and political order in New York State and in the United States. It is an opportunity to push the nation - and Dems - forward. It is important to vote the Working Families Party (WFP) line for several reasons. The WFP is an independent progressive political party that in New York State can run progressive candidates who are endorsed by both the WFP and the Democratic Party.

          Venezuela's Economic Crisis: Does It Mean That the Left Has Failed?
    
          October 27, 2016
    
          International media has provided a constant stream of stories and editorials about the collapse of the Venezuelan economy. Shortages of food and medicine, hours-long lines, incomes eroded by triple-digit inflation have dominated press reports. Adherents to this explanation say the downward spiral will continue until the chavistas are removed from power, either through elections or through a coup (most pundits don't care which). The reality is more complicated.

          New U.N. Report Shows Just How Awful Globalization and Informal Employment Are for Workers
    
          October 27, 2016
    
          An estimated 60.7 percent of the world’s workers labor in the informal economy, without legal or social protections.  While the impact of working without the freedom to organize is most dire in the world’s poorest countries, U.S. workers are not an exception to the types of labor rights abuses the described in a United Nations Report.

          To Remake the World: Slavery, Racial Capitalism, and Justice
    
          October 27, 2016
    
          Not so much as a comprehensive weekly review of one unitary book, the following contribution is a synthetic culling of classics on white supremacy and racialism in the United States. We at Portside believe the essay is must reading, as are the books cited.
