This past week, a black mother in Baltimore discovered her 16-year-old son, covered by a hoodie and a mask, participating in the riot that shook the city. So she chased him down, cursed him and beat him as a bystander captured the scene on video. Once it was posted, the consensus online, in social media and on cable TV held her up as a hero. A still from the video graced the cover of the New York Post with this headline: “Forget the National Guard .?.?. send in the moms.” In this country, when black mothers fulfill stereotypes of mammies,

Freddie Gray´s Death Ruled a Homicide

The death of Freddie Gray has been ruled a homicide caused by severe trauma. Gray, 25, was taken into police custody in Baltimore on April 12 and sustained a spinal injury during that time that required medical attention. He went into a coma several days later and died a week after his apprehension. Police have never said why they took him into custody in the first place, noting only that he ran from officers, and they have not publicly explained how Gray received the spinal injury. Violent protests rocked Baltimore on Monday afternoon and through the night, prompting hundreds of

The six officers accused in the death of Freddie Gray face a litany of charges that include second-degree depraved-heart murder, involuntary manslaughter, false imprisonment and misconduct in office. The officers — three white, three African American — represent a broad spectrum of experience on Baltimore’s police force. Three of them joined the force three years ago. The driver, who faces the most serious charges, is African American and has been on the force since 1999. One officer had his weapons confiscated after a former girlfriend contacted the Carroll County sheriff’s office to say she feared for his safety. The officers

Black Culture Is Not the Problem

BALTIMORE — IN the wake of the Michael Brown shooting and subsequent unrest in Ferguson, Mo., commentators noted the absence of black representatives among Ferguson’s elected officials and its police leadership. A Department of Justice report highlighted how Ferguson’s mostly white City Council and its courts spurred on explicitly racist policing, in part to harvest fines from black residents. Then came Baltimore. The death of Freddie Gray, like those of Eric Garner, John Crawford III, Rekia Boyd and so many other unarmed African-Americans, at first seemed to fit the all-too-familiar template — white cops, black suspect, black corpse.

Why Do So Many People Hate the
Sound of Hillary Clinton´s Voice?

You know Hillary Clinton’s voice, right? I mean, you know it. It’s just so loud and annoying. Or maybe it´s like a nagging wife. Or inauthentic—that phony Southern accent! Those flat Midwestern vowels! Whatever it is, her voice is burned into your brain. Now think of Jeb Bush’s voice. It’s so—wait, what does it sound like again? He sounds just ... like a guy, maybe? It´s probably hard for you to recall distinguishing features about most of the Republican candidates. (Snip)If you watch old clips of Clinton from the 1992 campaign, she is presenting herself in a much more feminine

As Clinton scandals continue to mount and her credibility plummets, gleeful Republicans are quietly discussing what once seemed impossible: Hillary Clinton might not survive primary season, let alone make it all the way to Pennsylvania Avenue.That may well turn out to be the case. But it’s not because of the allegations about “Clinton cash” or deleted emails. Those are major political scandals, to be sure, but of a kind that a shameless Bill Clinton skated through easily during his own administration. The deeper problem is personal. As the veteran Democratic strategist Bob Shrum put it to me, rather forlornly, in an

This is the first officer to be pictured out of the six cops charged over the death of Freddie Gray. Officer Edward Nero, 29, is facing 10 years in jail for allegedly assaulting the 25-year-old before he suffered a severe spine injury and died. The married father-of-one, who is also charged with misconduct in public office, joined the Baltimore Police Department in 2012. He will face trial alongside five colleagues, whose charges range from assault to manslaughter and murder, after the Maryland State´s Attorney, Marilyn Mosby, declared Gray´s death was a homicide, and there is probable cause to file criminal

Is the Clinton Foundation Really a Charity?

One of the mantras one must invoke when discussing the Clinton Cash controversy is to say that whatever one might think of the pay-to-play aspects of the former first family’s charitable endeavors, the Clinton Foundation does a lot of good work around the world. But now that more of the press is finally asking tough questions about the Clintons’ activities, it appears that their charity may not pass the basic question donors ask of any philanthropy: how much of the money raised is actually spent on the causes you are supposed to be aiding? Though the foundation has claimed that

Ted Cruz: ‘Absence is the equivalent

Ted Cruz has an explanation for why he missed Loretta Lynch’s confirmation vote last Thursday: “Absence is the equivalent of a no vote.” The Texas senator and Republican presidential candidate offered his most comprehensive defense yet for being the lone senator to miss the final vote on Lynch, after Cruz had devoted significant effort to blocking her confirmation for U.S. attorney general. Cruz missed the vote because of a fundraising obligation in Texas, but he maintained that he had attended the only vote that mattered, an earlier vote to break a filibuster on Lynch. Indeed, Cruz largely blamed Senate Majority Leader Mitch

Because the rich are getting richer, the poor are getting poorer, according to Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) A CNN anchor asked Ellison on Thursday, "How do you explain what is going on in Baltimore this week?" "Well, of course, excessive police officers and staggering unemployment go together," Ellison responded, "because what we´ve done in the United States, as we´ve said, that the affluent part of our society is going to demand more tax breaks, more wealth, more privilege, leaving less for the less fortunate, and the way we keep the less fortunate in control is through policing and prisons.

Will CVS Rebuild Their Looted Store?

CVS was heralded for choosing to put a store in a struggling neighborhood. But did riots scare the corporation out of rebuilding? Its burning store riveted viewers as the cable news networks covered the destruction in Baltimore. But since it’s new outpost went up in flames, CVS corporate has been very quiet. Analysts have described how critical the pharmacy was to a poor neighborhood with few services and no supermarket. Not since CVS made the socially-conscious decision to stop selling cigarettes in its stores has its name been invoked so many times on national television.

Presidential hopeful and former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum showed some support for Bruce Jenner at the South Carolina Republican Party’s convention Saturday. Santorum, a staunch social conservative, told reporters he believes Jenner when he says he is a woman. “If he says he’s a woman, then he’s a woman,” he stated during a roundtable with reporters at the convention. He continued: My responsibility as a human being is to love and accept everybody. Not to criticize people for who they are. I can criticize, and I do, for what people do, for their behavior. But as far as for who
