The Racism of “Racism”: The Complicated Origins of the Term

“Racism,” like race, was invented. The term “racism” has done a lot of heavy lifting for anti-racism advocates, helping to frame anyone discriminating by race as misguided.

Voters: Just as Shallow as We Thought They Were

It’s probably easier at this point to personally contact the President of the United States than it is to read Hollywood’s latest scripts.
