Rejecting Refugees: Immigration Enforcement in the Time of Trump - Refugee Law Initiative Blog

"Within days of taking office, President Donald J. Trump published or announced changes to immigration law and policy. These changes have profoundly shaken the lives and well-being of immigrants and their families, many of whom have been here for decades, and affected the work of the attorneys and advocates who represent or are themselves part of the immigrant community."

Opinion | Ms. Monopoly Creates a World Where No One Wins

"Games can be effective political tools, but they’re also created by people (and companies) with their own particular motives — motives that may or may not be explicit in the rules. It’s possible to be the winner in your game, and a mere piece in someone else’s."

Eric Thurm, author of Avidly Reads Board Games, explores the deeper implications of the games we play in The New York Times Opinion Section https://nyti.ms/2NiZcWP

Games like this one attempt to have players reckon with social inequalities. But there’s a fine line between teaching and pandering.

From White Nationalists to Black ‘Greeks’: The varied strategies of racial politics

"Our forthcoming book, A Pledge with Purpose: Black Sororities and Fraternities and the Fight for Equality, documents how the last century of black collegians and alumni have endeavored to both “uplift the race” and the nation. The founding impetus for these fraternal organizations is intertwined with a history of collegiate literary societies, white college fraternities and sororities, black benevolent and secret societies, the black church, and the broader racial milieu of exclusion and white nationalism. This collective history bespeaks of fidelity to the overarching principles of racial equality and provides a template for political activity in 2020 and beyond."

Donald Trump's favorite president: Andrew Jackson as father of the "white republic"

"There's no doubt about it. Andrew Jackson, like many Americans in the early 19th century, believed that America was and should be forever a white republic. This was not a place where people of color were to expect or enjoy freedom and the protections of liberty and equality. Andrew Jackson absolutely believed that, and was willing to take great measures to guarantee the United States would be a white republic."
