I was in Atlanta, Georgia, three years ago for Netroots Nation. (Totally bummed we had to cancel in Denver this year.) It was during this time that a young activist was brutally murdered at the white supremacist “Unite the Right” rally in...
Is this the kind of country the majority of U.S. voters actually want to live in?.. Donald Trump has falslely told us that only 9,000 people have died of the coronavirus in the United States, that shooting an unarmed man in the back seven times is like a bad putt at golf, that protests are being led by an airplane full of black-jacketed "thugs," and refused to condemn a vicious murderer who killed two people and blew the arm off a third.

Donald Trump, the 45th president of the United States, has a history of speech and actions that have been widely viewed as racist or racially charged. Journalists, friends, and former employees have accused him of fueling racism in the United States and some scholars have placed Trump's rhetoric and performance in the context of white supremacy.
When former Vice President Joe Biden announced, on August 11, that he had chosen Sen. Kamala Harris of California as his running mate, it didn’t take long for some far-right Republicans to show their racism — including birthers, who are claiming that Harris is unqualified to be vice president of the
President Donald Trump lobbed yet another racist attack on low-income housing being built in American suburbs, and he drew a swift rebuke from many Twitter users who called him out for his bigotry. In a tweet posted Wednesday morning, the president wrote that “the ‘suburban housewife’ will be voting for me” because “I ended the […]
Michael Cohen’s new book will claim President Donald Trump made racist comments about Barack Obama and Nelson Mandela. The revelations were made public in court filings as part of Cohen’s legal battle to be released from federal custody after he was re-arrested July 9, and his lawyers claim the president’s former attorney was sent back […]
