What We Missed

At The Prospect, EJ Graff on voting while trans.

Voter suppression efforts continue in Florida and Virginia, targeting elderly and minority voters.

At The Atlantic, Ta-Nehisi on the burden of a Black President.

I have a piece in The Sydney Morning Herald, about the dog whistle racism in Romney’s answer to the gun control question in this week’s debate.

    I watched the debate at a bar in the Village, and so far you have been the only person that has what Romney said with racism.

    His response was irrelevant and stupid, but please tell me why you thinly he was actually referring to broken black families.
