How an Élite University Research Center Concealed Its Relationship with Jeffrey Epstein | The New Yorker
The effort to conceal the lab’s contact with Epstein was so widely known that some staff in the office of the lab’s director, Joi Ito, referred to Epstein as Voldemort or “he who must not be named.”

Epstein, who socialized with a range of high-profile and influential people, had for years been followed by claims that he sexually abused underage girls. Police investigated the reports several times. In 2008, after a Florida grand jury charged Epstein with soliciting prostitution, he received a controversial plea deal, which shielded him from federal prosecution and allowed him to serve less than thirteen months, and much of it on a “work release,” permitting him to spend much of his time out of jail.  ronan-farrow  mit-media-lab  jeffrey-epstein  joi-ito  l-rafael-reif  bill-gates  leon-black  donald-trump  alexander-acosta  signe-swenson  ethan-zuckerman  john-tye  whistleblower-aid

New York doesn't have to be that hard—just ask Jake Dobkin
"I’ve always felt that we should secede and join the EU, or Canada, cause New York at this point has much more in common with foreign places than any state in America, except maybe California. The gap gets bigger and bigger between us and the rest of the state, the rest of the country. When I’m really depressed, thinking about Republicans taking over the federal government, it’s bad and terrible for a lot of people but there are times when I think honestly, New York and California keep getting more liberal and more Democratically controlled. When Trump was elected it probably secured the Democrats control of New York for a thousand years. It’ll be a shame to lose the rest of the country, but I never go there."

"So my daughter wouldn't be a citizen now but y'all sent my ass all over the world to get killed for 20 years. Bet..."
Let me clarify. I'm just saying if this rule had been in place while I was serving she wouldn't be considered a citizen (she was born in a German hospital). She was born in 1992 so I believe she's grandfathered in, but who knows if they'll even try to change that.

What Do Rally Playlists Say About the Candidates?
"Pugnacity, high drama, self-congratulation and Top 10 familiarity — preferably all at once — are clear requirements for the playlist at Mr. Trump’s rallies. They’re oldies with a swagger... including, surprisingly, gay swagger. The default sentiment is combative self-confidence; the default sound is a martial blare."

Trump 'Embodies Nearly Every Aspect Of A Racist,' Author Says : NPR
an antiracist as someone who is expressing an antiracist idea or supporting ... an antiracist policy, policies that yield racial equity, while antiracist ideas talk about the equality of racial groups, and I'm very deliberate in arguing that we should be striving to be antiracist as opposed to self-identifying as not racist.

I don't really define racist at all by intent. I define it based on what a person is saying. If a policy is, is leading to inequity, they can call that policy racist.  donald-trump  racism  rachel-martin  how-to-be-antiracist-book  ibram-kendi

Eddie S. Glaude Jr. on white supremacy and racism, pinning the uptick in mass shooting/white violence on Donald Trump, and racial ignorance
From Nikole Hannah-Jones:
You want racial innocence on the cheap, too. As if somehow everything would have been ok for millions of black and brown people suffering in this country from white supremacy if Hillary had won. Take that mess to someone else’s timeline. I’m not interested.

"Send Her Back" Chants Cannot Be Our Normal. This Is How We Fight Back.
We have to organize to protect each other, whether by sharing information or resources. We have to organize to make our dissent loud and pressure those with decision-making power. And we have to organize to change who holds that power. I believe we will. But there is only one way we can save ourselves, and that is the way we always have — together.

U.S. Gun Makers Send Weapons South As Migrants Flee North
In early February, the Trump administration finalized a rule change that will make the deals even easier — ending congressional oversight of many overseas gun sales. The president is set to move the export control process from the State Department to the Commerce Department, which is charged first and foremost with increasing sales for American companies. As a result, bureaucrats will no longer have to notify Congress of many gun sales worth $1 million or more. The only thing keeping the change from coming into force is a hold placed by Democratic Senator Robert Menendez of New Jersey, and experts are not sure how long he can keep the rule from taking effect.

Red Sox Divided on Racial Lines by White House Visit - The Atlantic
As such, Trump turned the tradition of championship teams visiting the White House into an uncomfortable experience for athletes of color—who are often asked to cast aside their identity for the comfort of their white teammates, owners, coaches, and fans.

That the Baylor coach, Kim Mulkey, had publicly campaigned for an invitation to the White House helped bring about the visit.

As of now, no one outside the team knows if Mulkey ever considered how some of her players might feel about being in the presence of someone who has insulted not just people of color, but also women—and women athletes in particular.

Through Baylor’s sports-information department, Mulkey declined to comment about the team’s trip to the White House. However, she told the Associated Press last month that going to the White House is “not a political issue for me.”

But what if it’s a personal issue for her players?
