The oppressor never gives up his power, and in the case of slavery, he never truly did. In a criminal justice system where a Black man is six times more likely to be incarcerated than a white man, where underdeveloped communities have to remain underdeveloped for fear that they will be gentrified and where felony disenfranchisement extends a sentence far beyond being in prison, shackles have become handcuffs and the Constitution still remains merely a suggestion.
At a time where the sensible world is waiting for some director to say the word “Cut!”, we still live in some denial that this is all a television show, and our reality star President Donald J. Trump is simply attempting to put the Kardashians' ratings to shame. In our most recent episode, the Special Counsel Robert Mueller investigation — a recurring theme throughout our past two seasons — came to a disappointing conclusion for many. What Democrats do not seem to realize, though, is that they now have a chance to end the show. But they are not taking it.

On Feb. 19, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) threw his hat in the ring for a second bid at the U.S. presidency. Progressive campaign veterans feared, while establishment pundits prayed, that the momentum Sanders held in 2016 would be lost — it was not. Within 24 hours of announcing, the Sanders campaign raised $6 million from grassroots donors, quadrupling Sen. Kamala Harris’s (D-Calif.) 24-hour total of $1.5 million. Sanders is a self-proclaimed Democratic socialist, which is a term that scares the ignorant. In the same light, it is these same people who abhor the idea of being taxed on their profits above $10 million to pay for a child’s cancer treatment, and who forget that the last Democratic socialist president to grace the United States saved the capitalism they love so much.
On Thursday, Feb. 7 at 10:12 p.m., Domineque Hakim Marcelle Ray was executed in Alabama without an imam present in his execution chamber. Neither God nor justice was present that day. The time of Ray's execution was 10:12 p.m., but alas, it was not the time of his death. He died following a 5-4 decision by the Supreme Court to deny Ray’s rights to have an imam present in the chamber with him. He died the moment this ruling came out.
My best friend and I were in a heated conversation regarding baseball, as we both take our baseball as seriously as we take our politics. We were discussing a blown strike-three call we had seen on television that day and, in the midst of this discussion, I suggested that perhaps using digital technology to call balls and strikes may be better. My best friend rebuked me, “No! Having human home plate umpires is a tradition, whether or not they’re wrong! It’s tradition!”
