After Charlottesville, Thousands Expected to Attend Boston Counter-Protests to Right-Wing Rally - NBC News
“While it is our intention to send a message to those who would subject marginalized communities to domestic white terrorism, hate speech, and violence, we also stand in opposition to the most insidious and deadly forms of white supremacy,” BLM Boston said in a statement. “These include, but are not limited to: mass incarceration, income inequality, anti-immigration initiatives, police and local law enforcement, and housing and employment discrimination.”

Top journalists reveal the best reporting advice they have received
<p>Journalism as a profession is more art than science. There are few codified rules of the trade, no official list of industry do’s and don’ts. All of which makes the unofficial pipeline of advice—words of wisdom from one journalist to another—more important than ever.

A New Generation of White Supremacists Emerges in Charlottesville - ProPublica
These organizations exhibited unprecedented organization and tactical savvy. Hundreds of racist activists converged on a park on Friday night, striding through the darkness in groups of five to 20 people. A handful of leaders with headsets and handheld radios gave orders as a pickup truck full of torches pulled up nearby. Within minutes, their numbers had swelled well into the hundreds. They quickly and efficiently formed a lengthy procession and begun marching, torches alight, through the campus of the University of Virginia. Despite intense interest from the media, police and local anti-racists, the white supremacists kept the location of their intimidating nighttime march secret until the last moment. The next day, the far-right forces — likely numbering between 1,000 and 1,500 — marched to Emancipation Park. Once again, they arrived in small blocs under military-style command. The racist groups were at least as organized and disciplined as the police, who appeared to have no clear plan for what to do when the violence escalated. The racist groups stood their ground at the park and were not dislodged for many hours. For many of them, this will be seen as victory. “Every rally we’re going to be more organized, we’re going to have more people, and it’s going to be harder and harder for them to shut us down,” said a spokesman for Vanguard America, a fascist group, who gave his name as “Thomas.” “White people are pretty good at getting organized.”

Well-educated elites are no strangers to white supremacy - The Washington Post
In addition to the history covered in this article, the civil rights era also had its suit-and-tie supremacists—in the guise of the White Citizens Councils, sometimes referred to as the Uptown Klan—and in numerous Klansmen from the middle and elite classes. Sam Bowers, Imperial Wizard of the Mississippi White Knights of the KKK, was the grandson of a Mississippi plantation owner on his mother's side and of a US Congressman on his father's side. The White Citizens Council rebranded as the Council of Conservative Citizens and has persisted into the present day, exerting ongoing political influence. > [T]he hashtag #ThisIsNotUs belies the truth about the ubiquity of white supremacy and diminishes its centrality to the political architecture of the U.S. nation-state. Worse, #ThisIsNotUs fundamentally misdiagnoses its basic ideological aims and strategies as a social movement. > Far from an aberrational political ideology, suit-and-tie white supremacy (and lab-coat white supremacy, for that matter) has been central to how the United States refashions itself as a modern racial state still committed to white supremacy.'"

Killings of Black Men by Whites are Far More Likely to be Ruled “Justifiable” | The Marshall Project
"Self-defense decisions by regular people, much like those involving the police, are made quickly and with imperfect information. As a result, a homicide can be ruled self-defense when the killer faced no actual threat but had a reasonable belief he or she did. "That is where irrational fear can come into play. Police, prosecutors and juries may be apt to give killers the benefit of the doubt in situations when they were faced with someone who seemed 'dangerous.' "'Tell me that it doesn’t factor in if the person is black when they're approaching the suspect,' [Mitch] Vilos said. 'It contributes to the decision to pull the trigger because of the fear associated with the stereotype.'"

The Other Senator Fighting Cancer - ATTN:
Senator Mazie Hirono: "The great thing was I had health care, so I wasn't sitting there worrying about how the heck I was going to pay for the care that I needed. I could concentrate on the kind of care that would keep me well and could keep me here on the steps of the Capitol to fight with you guys, because this is going to be for the long haul." As Kevin noted, there haven't been WaPo or NYT profiles in courage about Senator Hirono casting her vote to save the Affordable Care Act, though she was diagnosed with stage 4 kidney cancer 3 weeks ago.
