Buffalo Soldiers Day in Nevada celebrated for 3rd year

For the third year in a row, a group of history enthusiasts gathered Saturday to celebrate an often overlooked portion of American history: the Buffalo Soldiers. In 2019, Gov. Steve Sisolak declared July 28 as Buffalo Soldiers Day, honoring the first Black soldiers in a peacetime army. Two cavalry and four infantry regiments were created in 1866, and following the Civil War the men served as some of the first park rangers in the Sierra Nevada and helped expand infrastructure throughout the West.

Brooks: The question we all should ask: How racist is America?

One question lingers amid all the debates about critical race theory: How racist is this land? Anybody with eyes to see and ears to hear knows about the oppression of the Native Americans, about slavery and Jim Crow. But does that mean that America is even now a white supremacist nation, that whiteness is a cancer that leads to oppression for other groups? Or is racism mostly a part of America’s past, something we’ve largely overcome?

Book World: Experimenting with a homegrown garden of mind-altering substances

- - - Michael Pollan is at it again: taking drugs and spinning wild, mesmerizing yarns about being human in a plant world. In his new book, "This Is Your Mind on Plants," he grows opium poppies and mescaline cacti in his garden, heroically (and miserably) tries to avoid caffeine, and, in general, participates with gusto in our species' age-old labor of helping the cleverest of plants propagate their genes. He weaves together botany, brain sciences, evolutionary biology and political economy into a sort of grand unified theory of drugs. And, of course, he experiments on himself, with intellectually delectable results. While not as revelatory as Pollan's major works, this is a wonderful and compelling read that will leave you thinking long after you set it down.
