As I stand in line at the Super America, the man ahead of me uses a credit card to pay for his gas; the clerk smiles, the transaction happens and its over. My turn to pay and I use my credit card…the clerk tells me, “We’ve had a lot of fraud here, and can I […]

“No,” said Mr. Britling. “It is the theologians who must answer that. They have been extravagant about God. They have had silly absolute ideas – that He is all powerful. That He’s omni-everything.

Ryan heaped fuel on an already tense situation when he said protesters were acting “like a lynch mob,” as he vigorously defended the police officers involved in Gray’s brutal arrest that resulted in his death. William Murphy, the Grays’ lawyer, demanded an immediate apology. Murphy told the Sun that it’s unfathomable that Ryan could call […]

But Edkins’ project sounds more ambitious in scope. “Days of Cannibalism” is further described as a triptych Western set in contemporary continental Africa, where, first, the threat is in the business of globalized trade in China, but, secondly, also within a band of smugglers in Lesotho, who play cards in a local bar named “Days […]

From 1972 to 1991, at least 110 African-American men experienced similar forms of torture at the hands of CPD commander Jon Burge and the detectives who reported to him. Like Cannon, many of these people were coerced into making false confessions; more than 20 are still in prison today for crimes they may not have […]

The cops stopped me anywhere they saw me, particularly at night. Once, as I was walking through the laneway behind my neighbourhood pizza parlour, two officers crept up on me in their cruiser. “Don’t move,” I whispered to myself, struggling to stay calm as they got out of their vehicle. When they asked me for […]

Within the past decade, nearly 12,000 American women, including undocumented, resident aliens and naturalised citizens, were murdered by their current or estranged lovers.

Das sich dieser Hetze in Deutschland linke Parteien und Gewerkschaften entgegenstellen ist ein gutes Zeichen, dass die offene Hetze noch nicht so akzeptiert ist, wie in anderen westeuropäischen Staaten. In dem Aufruf der Linken heißt es dem entsprechend folgerichtig: “Neu ist daran nicht das Ideologiegemisch aus Rassismus, Chauvinismus, Homophobie und nationalkonservativen Versatzstücken, sondern der Erfolg […]

The ancient Greeks also had slaves. They were not Negroes but white men who had been taken captive in war. There could be no talk of racial differences. And yet Aristotle, one of the great Greek philosophers, declared slaves inferior beings who were justly subdued and deprived of their liberty. It is clear that he […]
