NEW: "Concerns about racism in arbitration were raised as far back as the Reconstruction Era, when the Freedman’s Bureau adopted processes similar to arbitration panels to address labor and employment disputes between white planters and freed slaves." https://t.co/6HymqAPIsg https://t.co/Lvh5CITofI

During last week's mass arrest of peaceful protesters in the Bronx, the NYPD detained at least 11 legal observers — an act "targeted harassment" that was unprecedented and deliberate, according to longtime attorneys.

4/ The NYPD’s probe of officers who battered a cyclist with batons was closed because investigators couldn’t ID the cops or victim. But the victim had filed a notice of claim with the city in Sept. & testified at a statutory hearing about the incident. https://t.co/UXPQMM3u3U

This is a great column. Hassan details the Reconstruction Era roots of concerns about white arbitrators deciding Black workers' claims against white employers. 150 years later, workers of color still have the same problem. https://t.co/2XDYl6Innu
