NEW: I found three dozen VA officers convicted of crimes ranging from embezzlement to child porn to manslaughter that were not decertified by the state. Are they cops somewhere now? We don't know. All should have lost their credentials but have not.

Barack Obama would like a word... (I don't like the term African American, but there's no way to define it that would include Kamala Harris and not Barack Obama)

As it relates to me (and you as well), my experiences being biracial and lightskinned are relevant and worth unpacking. I'd also push back on/likely take offense to a third party declaring those identities supersede or are more salient to my live experience than my blackness

I intended my questions sincerely, too. I think it's important to discuss the complexities of identity as it relates to immigration and lineage. But one thing does not or should not erase the other. Who are we to declare what dynamic is most salient in someone else's life?

Further, that assumes that the two are completely disconnected -- as if being the child of a high achieving white immigrant may not be a different experience than being the child of a high achieving immigrant of color -- which ignores the reality of the American racial hierarchy

What is the point of dissecting the complexity of Harris' identity this way? Her experience as a child of immigrants (one of whom was black) is not in conflict with her identity as a black woman. Who are we to determine one factor more "salient" than another in her life?

To be fair, perhaps it was Du Bois whose views on race and its function in American society Thomas was saying are an "oversimplified scheme"

Just published: These neighbors were hospitalized with coronavirus. Their vastly different journeys showed the depths of Brazil’s rich-poor divide.

As the statistics show, while there has been a spike in murder this year compared to last (unquestionably bad) NYC has 26% fewer murders at this point than in 2010 which (at the time) had the fourth fewest # of murders in city's recorded history
