Hillary Clinton’s Must Watch Speech on Race and Gun Violence

Hillary Clinton’s speech at 2015’s Conference of Mayors is the best I have heard her give. Addressing difficult truths on race and gun violence in today’s America, the former Secretary of State was forceful, insightful, tender and on point. Those who pretend she was politicizing the massacre of nine African American women and men at Emanuel AME Church in Charleston might have agendas of their...

The New York Times’ Vendetta Against Hillary Clinton

Just out of college, I got a job at The New York Times. The electricity of the place was undeniable and I was proud to enter the building’s double doors and pass beneath the paper’s glorious masthead. I never imagined that 30 years later, I’d be singling out the “paper of record” for what appears to be a vendetta against Hillary Clinton. Beyond reporting the news,...
