#496 - Tolerance

1/16/2021
"The great stumbling block in the stride toward freedom is not the white citizen's councilor or the Ku Klux Klanner, but the white moderate, who is more devoted to "order" than to justice; who prefers a negative peace which is the absence of tension to a positive peace which is the presence of justice; who constantly says: "I agree with you in the goal you seek, but I cannot agree with your methods of direct action"; who paternalistically believes he can set the timetable for another man's...

#495 - Democracy?

#483 - Erasing History!

11/28/2020
Toppling or defacing statues is not erasing history -- propping up false heroes is! History is not just erased by writers.

#478 - Will Anything Change With Biden?

11/10/2020
Let's skip the window dressing and lip service. Just make the Interior Department/BIA do its job! States have used the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act to extort gaming revenue from Native owned casinos for decades now.

These regulations were not enforced during the Obama or Trump administrations. Can we expect anything different from a Biden...
