Idaho must once again send the hate mongers packing

Hate and bigotry often lurk just beneath the surface of civil societies. So long as a society is united in disapproving of hateful words and actions, those evil twins remain suppressed.

Lisa Osborne Ross Shattered Public Relations’ Glass Ceiling Becoming The First Black Person To Lead A Major PR Firm. Here’s Why That Matters

As the head of the world’s largest, most powerful PR firm, Ross has the ability to help shape the America of tomorrow—maybe the world. From Brittney’s epic Pepsi dance break to Orbit’s legendary “lint licker” vs “cootie queen” feud, nothing sparks nostalgia like a good throwback commercial. The household brands we grew up with, and the advertisements that enticed us to buy them are like wallpaper stuck on the periphery of our minds.

An Anti-Abortion Activist’s Quest to End the Rape Exception

Content This content can also be viewed on the site it originates from. As a young girl in suburban Michigan, in the nineteen-seventies, Rebecca Kiessling was teased for looking nothing like her adoptive parents. Larry and Gail Wasser were Jews who took the family to temple on the High Holidays, and Kiessling, a fair-haired, blue-eyed child, recalls people asking, “Who’s the little shiksa?” Her only sibling, an adopted older brother, acted out in grade school and later got into trouble with the law. In Kiessling’s memory, Larry would joke that “socially deviant behavior is genetic,” a reference to the 1956 thriller “The Bad Seed,” in which a psychopathic child turns out to be the descendant of a serial killer. Gail sewed matching mother-daughter outfits, but that did little to quell Kiessling’s feeling that she didn’t belong. She likes to recount a story about seeing the musical “Annie” and being transfixed by the song “Maybe,” in which the orphan protagonist dreams of her mother and father. When Kiessling and I first met, last spring, she recited some of the lyrics for me. “Betcha they’re good / Why shouldn’t they be?” Annie sings. “Their one mistake / Was giving up me.”

I see in myself and my daughter-in-law how color and privilege work in America | Letters

I’m a law-abiding white woman. My daughter-in-law, a law-abiding Army veteran, has Native American and Mexican heritage. She is kind, polite and hard-working. We are treated very differently. When I enter a store, I am warmly welcomed by the staff who offer to help me. When she enters a store, she is followed and has been told that she cannot use the bathroom. She has been rudely told to go back to her own country. I have always been treated a certain way because of the color of my skin. She is treated a different way, not because she does not follow the law, but because of the color of her beautiful skin. That is what white privilege is about.
