“No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin or his background or his religion…” pic.twitter.com/InZ58zkoAm — Barack Obama (@BarackObama) August 13, 2017 “It’s time for reporters and journalists to be honest with the American people,” warned Harry Reid on the floor of the Senate six weeks ago. “They owe America the truth. Through his words and deeds, Donald Trump is a racist.” There is NO Such Thing as the Alt Left. For years, Donald Trump’s racism and sexism have served as Exhibit A in the case against his fitness […]
Stand in Solidarity with Charlottesville – Find an Event This weekend, hate groups and domestic terrorists of all stripes went to Charlottesville, VA to push their hateful message of white supremacy, fascism, anti-Semitism, and bigotry. When they got there they waged violence on unarmed anti-racists, killing one and injuring many others. We mourn for the life that was lost, and we will honor all those under attack by congregating against hate in our own communities. Tonight and tomorrow, Indivisible groups, along with our friends at Women’s March, Democracy for America, Working Families Party, Resist Here, […]

I won’t always be writing about the: Cheeto-In-Cheif, but I did want to post this film because this is what the core of Trump’s America consists of. Don’t kid yourself, this is no small faction. This is the core and Kelly Ann Conway’s double talk on TV, her “alternative facts” and Dan Spicer’s outright LIES as they are commonly referred to are nothing more than smoke and mirrors. This is no small faction because these individuals are everywhere. I do mean everywhere, emboldened by a white supremacist sympathizing malignant narcissist that was elected President.
As I watch Republican incumbent after incumbent win hold of their seat, the idea that this election was about “change” is garbage. This was about hate. Nothing more and nothing less. There is NO WAY you get this result because something is about “change”. The only reason “white” America stands so squarely against every other group is to retain supremacy. Change my ass. But as I previously wrote, there were Black and Brown people who voted for Trump. There were somke in the LGBTQRIS.T.U.P.I.Ds who voted for him also. You can lump those people in […]
by Nicole Dennis-Benn My father left Jamaica when I was three. We were practically strangers until he suggested I live with him in America while attending college. In the U.S. — my new country, my new home — writing became a necessity for my survival. I wrote in journals, scribbling poetry to pacify my homesickness.

Writing helped me navigate the complicated relationship I had with home and, most importantly, with myself — each identity in conflict with the other. I wrote to make sense of it all. I […]
