Why black women are missing from stories of sex harrassment and abuse in Hollywood New sexual misconduct allegations against different men seem to tumble out every day. Could this be a long overdue moment of reckoning for powerful abusers? Maybe. But there’s a hole in the conversation. So far, most of the alleged victims we’ve heard from have been white women. Some say that’s because for women of color, the stakes of going public are still too high.
How are mass shootings and domestic violence linked? As law enforcement tries to figure out what led to Sunday’s attack at a Baptist church in rural Texas, debate over preventing mass shootings continues. In more than half of mass shootings, one of the victims was an intimate partner or relative of the shooter. In the Texas case, the shooter was court-martialed for abusing his wife and child. And he sent threatening texts to his mother-in-law, who attended the church.
Trump says goodbye Paris Accord: What does it mean for U.S. and the planet? President Donald Trump announced Thursday that the U.S. will withdraw from the Paris Climate Accord, the landmark international agreement to limit greenhouse gas emissions. Trump was to renegotiate a new deal, but will that happen?
Why is Trump so behind on filling staff jobs, establishing concrete policies? Yesterday Donald Trump signed a “decision memo” to revamp the air traffic control system. But there was little legislative detail in the plan. There’s not much to other splashy announcements from the White House, including tax cuts and the arms deal with Saudi Arabia. And hundreds of positions are unfilled in federal agencies.
