This Week in White Supremacy #140: ‘We’re witnessing a battle over America: Equality versus white supremacy’ ~ Otis R. Taylor

“Chadwick Boseman wasn’t the hero we deserved. He was the one we needed.” ~ @georgewrighster

Webinar: Right of Way: Race, Class, and the Silent Epidemic of Pedestrian Deaths in America – a Conversation with author Angie Schmitt. Tuesday, September 8, 10:00 a.m. Pacific Time. Right of Way documents the traffic violence that occurs daily on America’s streets and reveals the racist policies and practices that create and perpetuate these tragedies. Contrary to popular opinion, pedestrian deaths are not unavoidable “accidents,” but highly predictable events, occurring in stark geographic patterns that tell a story about systemic inequalities. The victims are disproportionately those marginalized by society: immigrants, People of Color, those with lower incomes, the elderly, and the disabled. Register here: https://bit.ly/2GlZdZ2
