Rev. Irene Monroe: Some see the war on Christmas as an assault on Christianity. It feels to these Christian holiday revelers that the country, in its effort to be politically correct, is moving toward religious intolerance.

Tina Dupuy: Now we have a legally immune, self-policing, occupying army with a widely acknowledged racial bias loose in our cities. And your personal experience with them is largely based on your income level, age and race.

Sikivu Hutchinson: For humanist feminists of color, it’s not just sufficient to recognize that “Black Lives Matter” but that they also matter intersectionally—as female, queer, trans, poor and disproportionately segregated.

News of Republican Party’s Demise Greatly Exaggerated http://www.laprogressive.com/republican-demise-greatly-exaggerated/ http://www.laprogressive.com/republican-demise-greatly-exaggerated/#respond Thu, 18 Dec 2014 16:58:14 +0000 http://www.laprogressive.com/?p=106557 Joseph Palermo

Joseph Palermo: Washington Republicans have shown a willingness to damage the country so long as they see it as politically advantageous to their party. The belief that changing demographics are going to thrust the Democrats into a dominant position in national elections might be wishful thinking.

Devin Griggs: Sen. Paul has time and time again attempted to introduce a national version of a so-called “right-to-work” law during his time in the United States Senate, although thankfully these attempts have, for the time being, been beaten back.

Which Black Lives Matter? Don’t All Lives Matter? http://www.laprogressive.com/all-lives-matter/ http://www.laprogressive.com/all-lives-matter/#comments Wed, 17 Dec 2014 22:35:31 +0000 http://www.laprogressive.com/?p=106537 Ralph Shaffer

Ralph E. Shaffer: The slaughter of young blacks by other civilians, often by fellow blacks, is a greater threat to the safety of black families in Southern California than the loss of life by police misconduct. Why are there no massive demonstrations against that?

Harvard Grad Enters “Contempt of Cop” Zone http://www.laprogressive.com/police-traffic-stops-gone-bad/ http://www.laprogressive.com/police-traffic-stops-gone-bad/#comments Wed, 17 Dec 2014 21:08:49 +0000 http://www.laprogressive.com/?p=106525 Cheryl Dorsey

Cheryl Dorsey: Here’s what contempt of cop looks like. A police officer finds you guilty of offending his sensibilities; you get smart; and then you pay. “Pay” can mean a traffic ticket, a trip to the hospital after a use of force incident, three-hots-and-a-cot after being booked for assault on a police officer, or death.
