Kathleen Parker: A blueprint for changing the way we talk about race

Posted 6/27/2015 in National Columns

Froma Harrop: Why we still need public libraries

Posted 6/20/2015 in National Columns

Younger Americans can hardly imagine a time when you had to visit a library to research the population of Phoenix in 1980.



Susan Estrich: Who do you side with?

Posted 6/19/2015 in National Columns

There's nothing as depressing as asking young people whether they plan to participate in the election and hearing them tell you they have no idea which candidate to be for or what the differences are or, worse, that it doesn't matter.



Leonard Pitts: Dolezal controversy is about our racial delusions

Posted 6/18/2015 in National Columns

Kathleen Parker: Bill's Clintonesque rebuttal

Kathleen Parker: What was the police officer in McKinney thinking?

Posted 6/13/2015 in National Columns

Video imagery doesn't get much worse than a white police officer throwing an African American girl in a bikini to the ground, kneeling on her back as she cries and drawing his gun on other teenagers. What in God's name is wrong with our cops?

Posted 6/8/2015 in National Columns

The competent Loretta Lynch can no doubt handle the job of cleansing professional soccer of widespread corruption. But why is that the U.S. attorney general's job?



Rheta Grimsley Johnson: Caruso played the Ryman

Posted 6/6/2015 in National Columns
