REV. JACKSON JOINS SHARPTON, 1000 FAITH LEADERS ON 54th ANNIVERSARY OF MARCH ON WASHINGTON
It isn’t surprising that someone with Trump’s agenda would seek to fan the flames of racial division.
We applaud Republicans who, unlike Trump, call out the neo-Nazis and the Klansmen. But the measure of their sincerity is how they act.
The assault on affirmative action is classic dog whistle racial politics.
Donald Trump often seems more shock jock than president.
The commission’s members make up a rogues gallery and a dream team of voter suppression.
Trump wouldn’t want done to him what he’s doing to the majority of the American people.
Women, people of color, the poor and the LGBTQ are the targets, but the entire country will suffer.
