The Interview:   Ta-Nehisi Coates is a national correspondent at The Atlantic, recently writing the “The Case for Reparations.” He is also a guest columnist for The New York Times and the author of The Beautiful Struggle: A Father, Two Sons, and an Unlikely Road to Manhood. The Panel:   Paul Rieckhoff is the Founder and CEO of Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA). In a blog post titled “22 Per Day” for The Huffington Post, Rieckhoff put a spotlight on veteran suicides, which the IAVA’s “Storm the Hill” program seeks to prevent.   Kristen Soltis Anderson is the co-founder of the opinion research firm Echleon Insights. She writes for The Daily Beast, U.S. News and World Report and Huffington Post Pollster about elections and trends in public opinion. One of her latest articles is “Will Republicans Finally Win Back the Senate in 2014?”   Glenn Greenwald is an investigative journalist with The Intercept and has been involved in the reporting of Edward Snowden’s leaked docume ...
To anyone who doubts the level of hatred, contempt, and disgust for the "other" that a dominant people can have, look no further than this 1891 editorial from the Chicago Tribune. In it you'll find linguistic and religious exceptionalism, a ludicrous interpretation of reality, and poorly disguised racism: “[Blacks] have been taught to labor [...] They have been taught Christian civilization, and to speak the noble English language instead of some African gibberish. The account is square with the ex‑slaves.” The full article, by Ta-Nehisi Coates, is in The Atlantic (May 21). Message me if you want a link to the article; I'm not posting it here as only the above excerpt fits into the scope of what I share on RedLine's page. But it's a fascinating, depressing read that I recommend to anyone.

Signs of overt racism still are all around us, be it a New Hampshire police commissioner’s use of an ethnic slur to describe President Obama or an NBA team owner’s disturbing remarks about black athletes and fans. By now, we all know the drill, the media calls these people out for their ugly words and we play our parts, shaking our heads in sad disbelief — then return to our daily lives. Ta-Nehisi Coates, a senior editor at The Atlanticmagazine, thinks it’s time for a bold step to change the way we talk and think about race in America. This week, Bill speaks to Coates about his June cover story for the magazine, provocatively titled “The Case for Reparations.” In it, Coates argues that we have to dig deeper into our past and the original sin of slavery, confronting the institutional racism that continues to pervade society. From the lynching tree to today’s mass incarceration of young African-Americans, he says we need to examine our motives more intently and reconcile the moral debt and ec ...

I apologize for nerd bombing your newsfeed. I don't usually try to force feed anyone pointy head fodder with the exception Ta-Nehisi Coates, but I've become a big fan of firearm literature lately. Almost done with Nicholas Johnson's "Negroes and Gun." Went back and read a bunch of Adam Winkler's commentaries, and I'm going to locate a copy of his book "Gunfight" through the library. I've plowed through 4 book reviews of Michael Waldman's "The 2nd Amendment." I'm starting to reconsider my worldview. Sarah Silverman is right. We don't have a problem with firearms generally in America. We have a problem with firearm distribution. Instead of only embittered, hysterical, shrieking, bigoted white Fox News viewers owning/brandishing/embracing firearms, everyone needs to take up the cause of firepower. Black radicals, union members, Occupy activists, pro-choice/equal pay feminists, consumer protection advocates, and other assorted liberals need to arm themselves with equal passion. We should start showing up at p ...
Today’s highlights: Is the legacy of slavery alive and hurting African Americans now, or is a regrettable part of America’s past that requires nothing of citizens today? In an epic essay, writer Ta-Nehisi Coates argues that "until the U.S. pays its moral debts to African-Americans, our country will never be whole."
