This Year's May Day Protests Aren't Just About Labor  

Following the election of Donald Trump, groups affiliated with the Black Lives Matter movement set out to expand their focus beyond criminal justice issues and build partnerships with outside advocacy groups. May Day will be the first big test. On May 1, International Workers' Day, a coalition of nearly 40 advocacy groups, is holding actions across the nation related to workers' rights, police brutality and incarceration, immigrants' rights, environmental justice, indigenous sovereignty,

Finally, a Cookbook Without Annoyingly Perfect Photos   

If you've browsed your local bookstore's cookbook section lately, you'll likely find hardbound books filled with beautiful photos of exquisite dishes. They're fun to look at, but these close-ups of perfectly plated food can be intimidating. As most home cooks can attest, dinners rarely come out as appealing as those on the glossy pages of cookbooks.

Trump Brought the War on Women Mainstream in His First 100 Days  

When a video of Donald Trump boasting about grabbing women "by the pussy" leaked a month before the 2016 presidential election and his party seemed on the cusp of rejecting him, onlookers wondered whether his apparent admission of sexual assault might have finally crossed a line with voters. But conservatives who were reassured by his promises to roll back reproductive rights turned a blind eye to the sexual-assault claims. With those concerns about his electability far behind him, as presi

Justice Sotomayor Slams "Disturbing Trend" of Supreme Court Siding With the Police  

The Supreme Court has a "disturbing trend" of siding with officers over their alleged victims in cases involving the use of force by police. That's according to a stinging dissent issued on Monday by Justice Sonia Sotomayor, after the full court voted to let stand the dismissal of a lawsuit against a Houston cop who shot a man in the back during a traffic stop. The court, Sotomayor wrote, has reliably reversed lower-court rulings that favored the plaintiff in such cases, "but we rarely interve

Videos and images of King's brutalization were widely circulated, provoking an immediate call for justice. When that call went unheeded, the ensuing unrest ignited a wave of violence, death, and financial loss in America's second-largest city.

Donald Trump Has Made Socialism Cool Again  

A month after President Donald Trump took office, khalid kamau was eating lunch in the cluttered kitchen of the Mayday Space, a leftist community center in Brooklyn. A year earlier, the 39-year-old (who prefers to spell his name without capital letters) had been driving a bus in Atlanta. Then his life took a hard left turn. When the city slashed public pensions, he became a union organizer. He then launched a Black Lives Matter chapter, became a delegate for Sen. Bernie Sanders, and led a walk

Trump Slams New Polls as "Fake News"—Except for the Stuff That's Good for Him  

President Donald Trump lashed out on Sunday at two new polls that showed a majority of Americans are dissatisfied with the president's first 100 days in office. However, unlike previous times the president has criticized similar surveys and the media as "fake," Trump made sure to highlight the bits of positive news the polls contained for his administration, including an ABC/Washington Post trend that showed that 96 percent of Trump voters do not regret their decision.

A Loss in the Courts Won't Stop Missouri's Anti-Abortion Wave  

For decades, Missouri has embarked on a quest to eliminate abortion access. Earlier this year, state legislators filed some 14 anti-abortion proposals before the start of the session, making it a prominent example of emboldened efforts on the state level in the Trump era. Those measures were dealt a blow last week when a federal judge suspended two longstanding abortion restrictions in the state, but with the GOP controlling every level of the state’s government, state lawmakers are unde
