  • The $20 Bill: Andrew Jackson or Harriet Tubman?

    Monday, August 03, 2020
    With all the talk of taking down statues and changing the names of buildings, isn’t it time that we talk about the presence of Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill? Jackson was actually a slave trader who made his fortune buying and selling African-Americans. What he did to Native Americans was even worse. He forced an estimated 46,000 Native Americans off their ancestral lands and turned over the land to white people. Thousands of Cherokee died on the Trail of Tears, walking to what is now Oklahoma.   read more

  • Decontaminating the White House

    Monday, October 12, 2020

The rest of us, including White House workers, are not so lucky. First Lady Melania Trump has promised these employees that their environment will be safe, but can one really trust this family to do what they say or even, if sincere, to know how to do it?   read more

Unfortunately, the man who led the military coup that overthrew Bashir is General Awad ibn Ouf, who, since 2006, has been financially sanctioned by the U.S. government for his role in the genocidal attacks carried out in the Darfur region of Sudan.   read more
