Don’t tell me it’s about “heritage not hate” when we have inherited a world shaped by white supremacy. Don’t tell me that Roof was motivated by Southern pride when the people massacred in a church were Southerners, too.”
“Law allowing guns in buildings at colleges will invite trouble” – My column for The Houston Chronicle. “Texas Senate Bill 11 will provide zero benefits, undermine the UT community’s right to self-govern, and will create (and already has created) a climate of fear.”
