  2. America's real founding moment: Why we get Independence Day all wrongRead the original story w/Photo

    Saturday | Salon

    The black fight for freedom is the key American narrative -- and the U.S. as we know it is younger than you think It's been a little more than two weeks since nine human beings, all African-American, were murdered in a Charleston, South Carolina, church by a young white supremacist. In some ways, the public reaction has been predictable; all have expressed outrage, disgust, sadness, following a post-massacre routine that has become depressingly familiar.

  3. Black churches are burning & Fox News doesn't careRead the original story w/Photo

    Thursday Jul 2 | Salon

    Eight black churches have burnt down over 10 days in America, but the right-wing media has been strangely silent Black America's "blues sensibilities"-as well as that of other peoples who have historically suffered under power and somehow found a way to survive and triumph-means that laughter is one of the ways that we navigate times of trouble and sorrow. Other people crumble under the littlest of pressure and pain; to both our detriment and advantage, Black America marches on, indomitable as the miner's canary, we who are the moral conscience of the United States.

  4. Majority of Americans believe the Confederate battle flag symbolizes Southern pride, not racismRead the original story w/Photo

    Thursday Jul 2 | Salon

    Despite the recent controversy over the Confederate battle flag in the wake of the racially motivated massacre in Charleston, South Carolina, a new CNN poll indicates that opinion on the flag's meaning hasn't shifted much in the past 15 years, with the majority of Americans still believing it symbolizes Southern pride more than racism. In 2000, 59 percent of Americans claimed that they viewed the flag as a symbol of Southerners' pride in their heritage.

    Wednesday Jul 1 | Salon

    The Confederate flag isn't just a symbol: Why America's emblems of hate matter - and their disappearance should be celebrated When I was sixteen years old, my high school debate partner and I found ourselves in an Effingham, Illinois, convenience store, very late one night, buying a pack of Confederate flag stickers to decorate our debate file boxes. Stopped there on a long road trip, we were taken aback that those reviled flags, prominently on display in this rural Illinois town, had followed us out of the South.

    Wednesday Jul 1 | Salon

    In the wake of the racially motivated murder of nine black parishioners in a Charleston, South Carolina - and the conversation about the appropriateness of the Confederate flag in contemporary American culture to which it gave rise - TV Land decided that it's in the networks best interest to pull reruns of "The Dukes of Hazzard" from its schedule. Retailers like Walmart and Amazon stopped selling Confederate themed merchandise last week, so it's surprising that TV Land only decided to shelve the series today. 9 comments

  9. Fox News' latest spin: Dylann Roof is "product of the left wing"Read the original story w/Photo

    Monday Jun 29 | Salon

    On Monday morning's edition of "Fox & Friends," Brian Kilmeade spoke with Kevin Jackson, author of "The Big Black Lie" and frequent Fox News guest, about the results of a study that found right wing extremism to be more violent than Jihadism in the U.S. Jackson argued that Dylann Storm Roof, the 21-year-old white supremacist responsible for killing nine people in the historically-black Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, South Carolina, is actually of the left wing. "In the case of Dylann Roof, they've just thrown him over in the right because he passed by a right-wing building or something," Jackson argued.

    Monday Jun 29 | Salon

    On "Fox & Friends" Monday, former Florida Representative Alan West told Steve Doocy that "the liberal progressive left" only "manufactured" the Confederate flag crisis in order to deflect attention from Fox News' favored narratives, most notable among them how the decline in "traditional marriage" is destroying the African-American community . Doocy began by noting that NASCAR Chairman Brian France announced over the weekend that "we are going to be as aggressive as we can to disassociate ourselves with that flag," and that he installed measures to ban the flying of the Confederate flag on the infield of racetracks.

  12. Why America needs to reject the Charleston massacre's dangerous narrative of forgivenessRead the original story w/Photo

    Saturday Jun 27 | Salon

    Well-intended forgiveness has been seized on by the media and those in power as an excuse to ignore white supremacy Unfortunately, forgiveness, that element of moral sanctity which facilitates assuaging of grief, has morphed into a barrier obstructing the path to justice and accountability in the United States - a place weakened by the ubiquitousness and insidiousness of racism. Although it's tough to direct a critical lens at the concept of forgiveness when the situation involves grieving family members tearfully addressing an expressionless, depraved killer who isn't even asking for it, for posterity's sake this must be done.

    Friday Jun 26 | Salon

    With Thursday's news that Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev would be formally sentenced to death, Reza Aslan, guest panelist on "The Nightly Show," couldn't help but wonder why the same "rush to forgiveness" he saw with Dylann Roof wasn't being extended to Tsarnaev. Tsarnaev broke his long, two-year silence yesterday in court with an apology, explaining "I am sorry for the lives that I've taken, for the suffering that I've caused you, for the damage that I've done - irreparable damage."

    GOP guv deserves praise for decency. But let's not pretend hiding the flag will make white supremacy go away In the less than a week since Dylann Roof murdered nine human beings in an historic African-American church in Charleston, South Carolina, the discussion within U.S. politics has revealed, with an unusual degree of clarity, the difference between those Americans who are willing to at least acknowledge the legacy of Southern white supremacy, and those who are not.

    Tuesday Jun 23 | Salon

    Like frantic shoppers running down a last-minute list, Fox News talkers last week desperately tried to cobble together a inventory of reasons why racist gunman Dylann Roof may not have been primarily motivated by racism. As the conservative media anxiously and collectively searched for political cover, Fox News hosts and guests offered up an array of illogical explanations: Maybe the Charleston, S.C. church killing was an attack on Christians.
