The failure of the Democratic Party

The Democratic National Convention failed. They failed to meet the racialized challenges of a modern presidential election. They had too much faith in White voters, took voters of color for granted, and it cost them the election.

The news comes differently to me

Before I receive breaking news notifications on my cell phone, before I log into Twitter, before the video rolls down my Facebook newsfeed, and long , long before I watch the news, it is a text message; it’s a social media direct message: “Stay safe out there, bruh.” And I know someone has been killed.
