By Teka Lark (October 1, 2019) They lynched Mexicans. “They” being white people. Texas has always been home to nightmares. It is where my half my family who didn’t go to LA from Louisiana ended up. It is where my great-great aunt was burned alive. I read in Manitowoc, Wisconsin this weekend. I love Manitowoc, ..

By Octaviano Merecias (June 26, 2019) The responsibility of the writer Is to measure the rising poison into our soul by reminding us of our numbness of distraction into the apathy of oblivion as the dissolving heart of our neighbor lingers in our pupils Is to face evil with a piece of pen and ink ..

By Arun Gupta (June 23, 2019) Take a good look at these faces. What do you see? They are all indigenous peoples. 527 years after the conquest of the Americas began, we are still penning, brutalizing, kidnapping, and killing indigenous people. Asylum-seekers are 100% legal, protected by U.S. law as the signatory to international agreements ..

By Marc Cooper (December 1, 2018) Good grief! I just love the way liberals –and others– are now slavishly and shamelessly canonizing Bush 41 — one of the most mediocre presidents in history.
