The Chicago Negro and the Warsaw Ghetto – LUMINOUS – Medium
But many other people chimed in to say variations of something I hear often, most commonly from people who do not themselves live in the Chicago communities most impacted by violence: “well sure, it sounds bad, but we have to do something.” And those responses made me afraid in the pit of my stomach, because they reminded me of the long American tradition of moderate voices rationalizing the mistreatment of people who they fundamentally do not see as people like themselves.

In this way, people who consider themselves defenders of human rights enter into a moral slippage that ends in them not only witnessing grave abuse, but perpetrating it.

CBC Votes to Decline Invitation for Follow-Up Meeting with President Trump
"Given the lack of response to any of the many concerns we have raised with you and your Administration, we decline your invitation for all 49 members of the Congressional Black Caucus to meet with you. The CBC, and the millions of people we represent, have a lot to lose under your Administration. I fail to see how a social gathering would benefit the policies we advocate for."

Trump-Style Tactics Finally Stopped Working For Uber
"At the dinner, Emil Michael, the right hand of CEO Travis Kalanick, heatedly complained to me about the press. The company, he told me, could hire a team of opposition researchers to fight fire with fire and attack the media — specifically to smear a female journalist who has criticized the company. I suggested to him that this plan wouldn’t really work because the story would immediately become a story about Uber behaving like maniacs. 'Nobody would know it was us,' Michael responded. 'But you just told me!' I replied."
