Why Doesn’t the Supreme Court Want Americans to Know How Many Illegal Aliens There Are in the U.S. Right Now?
7/4/2019 11:44:43 AM

By Robert Romano   The Supreme Court unanimously ruled that a citizenship question can be included in a Census under the U.S. Constitution, however a narrower 5 to 4 majority threw out the specific rationale used by the Trump administration for the 2020 Census, remanding the case to lower courts for adjudication. Chief Justice John Roberts, joining the higher court’s liberal justices, stated “We do not hold that the agency decision here was substantively invalid. But agencies must pursue their goals reasonably. Reasoned decision-making under the Administrative...

One man’s joke is another man’s discount Dr. James L. Snyder
6/20/2019 10:12:43 AM

The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and I were dining out at a very nice restaurant. We had been on the road for two days and were weary of travel. At least, I was. Nothing I hate more on a vacation than travel. But this time it was not so bad because my wife was doing all the driving. She’s an excellent driver because she had the world’s best teacher. I admit that I was her teacher. We were seated and began looking at the menu. Then my wife said, “You don’t take very many things seriously, do you?” We both laughed, but I knew she was right....

Watching a Father & Son By Bill Fletcher, Jr.
6/20/2019 10:10:59 AM

You must have seen the video. A father speaking with his pre-verbal son about the season finale of Empire. The video went viral at warp speed and DJ Pryor—the father—was overwhelmed by the outpouring of emotion that the interaction with his son evoked. I have watched the video several times and love it. What especially struck me, and continues to, is that Pryor does not speak “baby talk” to his son, Kingston Jierre. He is holding a conversation and his son is attempting to do likewise. The son looks back and forth between the television and his father, moves his...

Immigrant children are still children By Marian Wright Edelman
6/20/2019 10:09:39 AM

The Trump administration’s cruel treatment of children and families at the border has not stopped. Children continue to die in the custody of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), including 16-year-old Carlos Gregorio Hernández Vásquez, who died May 20 just hours after being diagnosed with the flu. Despite the law requiring unaccompanied migrant children to be transferred to the custody of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) within 72 hours, Carlos had been held for more than a week in a processing center in McAllen, Texas where CBP said “large...

According to the website for the project, “The 2019 SDG Gender Index measures the state of gender equality aligned to 14 of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in 129 countries and 51 issues ranging from health, gender-based violence, climate change, decent work and others. The 2019 SDG Gender Index provides a snapshot of where the world stands,...

Much More than Summer School
6/13/2019 1:08:41 PM

By Marian Wright Edelman   Close your eyes and think about the words summer school. What comes to mind? If you picture a room full of children clapping, cheering, laughing and falling in love with reading you could be imagining the experience thousands of children across the country are about to have as they participate in the Children’s Defense Fund Freedom Schools® program. More than 1,400 college-aged servant leader interns, site coordinators and partners came together this week for National Training at historic CDF Alex Haley Farm in Clinton, Tennessee to learn...

Another Vacation in the Bank
6/13/2019 12:30:58 PM

Dr. James L. Snyder   The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and I arrived home from our vacation late Tuesday afternoon. I’m not one for vacations, but this one was special. Our grandson who lives in Ohio was graduating from high school and then this summer he would be heading off to London for some soccer group. He loves soccer. This is the second of our grandchildren to graduate from high school. I would not say this to everybody but, this year is the 50th anniversary of my graduation from high school. I cannot believe it has been that long. I must have fallen...

Antitrust regulators set sights on Big Tech as Amazon’s lack of diversity is exposed
6/7/2019 10:06:23 PM

By Richard McCarty   Antitrust regulators at the Justice Department and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) are setting their sights on Big Tech, and Amazon, may soon be under investigation by the FTC for monopolizing commerce. But this is not the first time Amazon has come under fire as it has repeatedly taken actions that target conservatives on ideological grounds and may be harming their ability to compete as well. To begin to address the company’s liberal bias, a shareholder resolution was filed to require the disclosure of the ideological perspectives of the...

47 State Attorneys General tell DC to follow the law: Forgive disabled vets student loans
6/7/2019 10:01:03 PM

By Charlene Crowell   Although Memorial Day is considered by many civilians as the unofficial start of summer, the true intent of the holiday is to annually honor those who lost their lives fighting for our country.  The men and women who wear or have worn this nation’s uniform in military service across wars and generations are deserving of remembrance as well as appreciation. This honor is particularly poignant for those who lost their lives in the fights for freedom, and others who returned home with permanent disabilities due to their service. But this...

Remembering Unita Blackwell
5/31/2019 1:40:34 PM

By Marian Wright Edelman   I was deeply sorry to hear of the passing of my friend Mayor Unita Blackwell. She was one of a kind. She was always laughing and making other people laugh and she never stopped growing, learning, rolling with the punches, and punching back when she had to. As a civil rights activist, a member of the executive committee of the Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party along with Fannie Lou Hamer, and the first Black woman mayor in Mississippi, Unita achieved many “firsts.” She was elected mayor of Mayersville, Mississippi in 1976 and served for...
