I’m so excited to introduce my new book, Why Does Everything Have to Be About Race?

The book debunks 25 of the most toxic (and annoying) arguments about race and gives you quick facts, history, and truth to shut down the lies, myths, and misinformation. http://bit.ly/whyrace

When Trump ran for president, Nikki Haley said she was appalled by his Muslim ban. But then she joined his administration and defended his policy while others objected. “I don’t remember Nikki Haley saying anything,” said a State Department official.

There have been 7 coups (Mali, Chad, Guinea, Sudan, Burkina Faso, Niger, Gabon) and 4 coup attempts (Sao Tome and Principe, The Gambia, Sierra Leone, Guinea-Bissau) in Africa since 2020, all in former European colonies that just won their independence in the 1950s, 60s, and 70s.

Residents of Key West, Florida voted to limit cruise ships to 1500 passengers a day. This upset the wealthy pier operator, so he donated $1 million to Ron DeSantis’s campaign. DeSantis repaid the favor by signing a bill to overturn the local residents.

Oklahoma made it illegal to teach anything in the classroom that makes white people feel uncomfortable about the past. So a group of Black teachers came together and created a free new course called “Black History Saturdays.”

Half of all Americans live in nine states, but that half gets only 18 seats in the Senate. It "gives an almost absolute veto" on federal legislation to a "narrow slice of white Americans," writes Jamelle Bouie.

That's why I say Abolish the Senate!

Because the Constitution gives tiny states like Wyoming the same number of senators as big states like California, one person in Wyoming has the influence of 68 people in California. This is unfair and anti-democratic. It’s time to abolish the Senate.

The Washington Post reconstructed the October 7 attack by analyzing hundreds of videos and photos. It found 14 breaches of Israel’s “Iron Wall.” The report shows Hamas had been planning for months and knew exactly how to neutralize Israel’s defenses.

Before the war, Nasser Hospital in Gaza limited admissions to 700 a day. Now, on a regular day without shelling, they take in more than 2,000 people. Beds and equipment are scarce, so many of the arriving patients end up on the floor.

We're one week away from another government shutdown deadline, and House Republicans still don't have a plan. One spending bill had to be pulled because they tried to overrule DC's abortion law and then realized that was a loser after Tuesday's election.

Election Day gave us a small slice of poetic justice, as “Exonerated Five” survivor Yusef Salaam got elected in New York and the man who refused to prosecute Breonna Taylor’s killers got defeated in Kentucky. A brutal election for Republicans. A small step forward for justice.

A jury has found police officer Nathan Woodyard not guilty for causing the death of 23-year-old Elijah McClain, who died after he was subdued by police and injected with ketamine by paramedics in 2019. Randy Roedema was found guilty and Jason Rosenblatt was acquitted in a separate trial last month.

What happens when the "good guy with a gun" is Black? He gets shot. K'aun Green broke up a fight and disarmed a man, only to be shot by San Jose Police Officer Mark McNamara. Now McNamara is out of a job after police discovered his racist text messages.

Trump has reportedly begun plotting to use his second term to prosecute his critics, created an enemies list of names of people to target, and drafted plans to invoke the Insurrection Act to quell any protest. Sounds like the beginning of a dictatorship.
