Winning Our Future, which is in the Newt Gingrich camp, might be the most off the wall Super PAC so far.

Eesha on racially coded rhetoric in the Republican primary.

Heartbreaking story about a teen who was killed after the police had her help them with a marijuana bust. I honestly have no words.

A must read personal narrative from a man who was held at Guantánamo Bay.

Demi Moore is playing Gloria Steinem in the Linda Lovelace biopic. Wait what?

This super racist ad attacking Jon Huntsman because he has a Chinese daughter was produced by the group New Hampshire Liberty 4 Paul. They’re very difficult to track down, but hey, anyone can make a video go viral from YouTube when our TV news media is only looking for controversy.

Not everyone’s laughing at “Shit White Girls Say… To Black Girls.”

Ru Paul is not Ron Paul, and she’s not running for president. But I just might vote for her anyway.

      Right, because people making fun of an oppressed minority is exactly the same thing as making fun of a privileged class.
