A clear majority of Americans want action on gun safety. Acres of research and our own common sense agree that gun violence is out of control. But we’re not doing anything about this crisis, because Republicans are forcing us to debate nonsense.
America insists on coddling the super-rich, making sure their children will never go broke, while neglecting the poor and forcing them to fend for themselves.
Even as young white men mow down Blacks and Latinos, Republicans continue to deny that they are inflaming racism or prodding lunatics to take matters into their own hands. They claim it is conservative white people who are under attack.
Conservatives are dead set on molding the country in their image and based on their own political and religious beliefs, no matter what the law says or how long it has said it.
The homelessness crisis forces one liberal Angeleno to make uncomfortably pragmatic decisions that contradict his progressive principles.
Social scientists believe that white Americans see their numbers and influence declining, and when that decrease is especially jarring — such as in certain school districts — they lose their “fundamental need to count, to be recognized and respected.”
There will always be another tiny demographic to blame for all of America’s problems—and conservatives will always be right there to let you know who you should hate now.
When it comes to your identity, there is your biology and there is your culture. And then there is you.
