The Race to the Bottom on Race

At this point, Dr. Martin Luther King's spinning in his grave could be used as wind power to light up the western hemisphere. President Trump's comments at a meeting with Congressional leaders about immigration on Friday smashed through the moral floor that this administration has set ten stories below the White House and established yet another embarrassing standard in ugliness for an administration that struggles to betray any semblance of normality. Those defending the president like to point...

Trump’s Immigration Policy Based on Ignorance and Hate

I was actually looking for an uplifting article to post close to the holiday that might provide some confidence and hope. Then I came upon this posting that discussed the president's thinking on immigration policy and how he reacted to court rulings that postponed the travel restrictions and immigration bans he tried to implement this year.

Pardon Our Appearance While We Crash and Burn

In the Trump Administration's best approximation of Friday Night Lights, the president (shudder) treated two of his main constituencies to a Shabbat treat.

Our President: The Hate That Keeps on Hating

With all that Charlottesville means now and will mean in the future, this much is clear: Donald Trump is probably the most genuine president we've ever had. He is a genuine racist. He is genuinely ignorant of United States History. He genuinely believes that there is a moral equivalency between those who hate and those who want to stop the hate. He is genuinely a terrible businessman. He genuinely thinks that he, and only he, can have a correct opinion on an issue. He has genuinely...

Trump’s Adviser Being Sued for Hiring Whites to Beat Up Blacks

Donald Trump was "elected" with the help of people like the KKK, who said that Trump represent the type of things they believed in. And since his "election," Trump has put in power numerous people of questionable racial beliefs. Among these people is Trump's new adviser, Reed Cordish, an executive of the Cordish Companies and being sued for hiring white men to beat up black people. On Wednesday, Trump tapped Reed Cordish as assistant to the president for intergovernmental and technology initiatives....
