"I don’t know of anything in the history of Black people in this country in which I’ve read some account in which it ended with, “and then they gave up.” That’s just not what we do. I know we work for the future of our children and our grandchildren and their children."

The split between how Jackson's 98% Black public schools are responding to COVID-19 vs. the majority-white suburban Rankin and Madison county schools is emblematic of Mississippi's growing racial gap in pandemic response.

Members of the Senate failed to reach an agreement on the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act. The failure of this legislation to move forward is a failure for our democracy. The people spoke by the millions, and their demand has not been met.

Update: DHS says it “is not and will not send Haitian nationals being encountered at the southwest border to…Guantanamo Bay,” adding that the bid solicitation posted Friday “is a typical, routine first step in a contract renewal, and unrelated to the Southwest Border.”
