Marilyn Mosby: We must protect good officers

Thu, 20 Oct 2016 12:05:00 PDT

Having learned the hard way through first-hand experience, when allegations of police misconduct arise, prosecutors are often seen as protective of police and unlikely to prosecute cases of wrongdoing. Despite taking an oath to administer justice equally and fairly to everyone regardless of one's...


An atmosphere of neglect

Thu, 20 Oct 2016 10:28:00 PDT

On Wednesday, Maryland lawmakers held a hearing to learn more about an issue of pressing fiscal importance: climate change. A few hours later and 2,500 miles away, the two leading candidates for president engaged in a debate in which the issue was treated as no more than an afterthought. Not only...


Third debate: Trump defeated by his ego (again)

Thu, 20 Oct 2016 09:54:36 PDT

On election day in 2000, Vice President Al Gore beat Texas Gov. George W. Bush by a half million votes nationwide. He had clear victories in states totaling 266 electoral votes compared to 246 for Mr. Bush. In Florida, the decisive state, he trailed on election night by about 1,700 votes out of...


WikiLeaks emails will poison Hillary Clinton's presidency

Thu, 20 Oct 2016 07:15:00 PDT

Sometimes you can't just plan for the ball; you have to plan for the hangover, too. No matter how 2016 ends, there will be a headache that haunts the country for years to come.

Let's start with the most obvious but less likely scenario: Donald Trump wins the presidency in perhaps the biggest black...


UMD, UMB research collaboration aims to demystify brain trauma

Thu, 20 Oct 2016 06:21:00 PDT

More than 2.5 million emergency room visits, hospitalizations and deaths each year are associated with traumatic brain injury (TBI). Such trauma is one of today's most important medical issues — and one of the most enigmatic. These injuries can cause depression, brain atrophy and cognitive decline,...


The fight for Mosul

Wed, 19 Oct 2016 12:53:00 PDT

President Barack Obama was surely right to predict the battle that began Monday to retake the Iraqi city of Mosul from Islamic State fighters will be hard fought and ugly. The insurgents have had two years to beef up their defenses in and around the city of more than 2 million, and initial reports...


Pitts: DuVernay's documentary '13th' fits the pieces together

Thu, 20 Oct 2016 03:00:00 PDT

"Not whips and chains -- all subliminal; instead of n----r, they use the word criminal" -- Common from "Letter to the Free"

In the end, she gives us grace. And by then, you really need it.

The end credits roll over pictures celebrating everyday joys of African-American life. A beaming girl rides...


What if the Electoral College went rogue?

Thu, 20 Oct 2016 03:00:00 PDT

When the Founding Fathers created the Electoral College as the method for selecting the president, they envisioned an "assembly of wise men and learned elders" who would vote independently and make up their own minds about who should be president and vice president.

Over time, however, the Electoral...


Letting go of the Colts, 32 years after they left Baltimore

Thu, 20 Oct 2016 03:00:00 PDT

The hush of boisterous football fans was sudden and occurred in the most unlikely place: the left field men's room of the upper deck of Memorial Stadium, right where the 50-yard line would have been located in that grand old ballpark. It was there, where a crowd of slightly inebriated Colts fans...


Trump likely wants a rigged election

Wed, 19 Oct 2016 08:19:00 PDT

When Donald Trump claims that the presidential election will be rigged, does he know what he is talking about for a change? There is a chance that he does. There is also a chance that he is not just concocting an excuse for losing, but hoping that the vote will be rigged — in his favor.

If the...


Supreme Court stand-off

Tue, 18 Oct 2016 13:01:00 PDT

Before Democrats get too smug and self-satisfied about their nominee's chances of getting elected president next month, they may want to consider what kind of Congress we're electing. Sen. John McCain dropped a pretty good clue on Monday when he told a Philadelphia radio station that Senate Republicans...


The criminal justice system's blind spot

Tue, 18 Oct 2016 08:02:00 PDT

When the use of force by police results in serious injury or death to a suspect, the consequences are often felt not only by the victim's family and friends but by the entire community. The deaths of unarmed black men at the hands of police have sparked anger and civil unrest in cities across the...


Horsey: Trump demeans women and slanders men with his 'locker room talk'

Wed, 19 Oct 2016 03:00:00 PDT

Puffy-faced Donald Trump does not look like a guy who spends a lot of time in locker rooms, unless you count the plush changing facilities at the country clubs where he hangs out with other billionaire golfers. Still, as we now know, he revels in what he calls "locker room talk."

The Republican...


Sexual assault, an American pastime

Tue, 18 Oct 2016 06:30:00 PDT

It all began with one simple tweet. Writer Kelly Oxford, after listening to interviews about the "locker room" and sexual assault took to Twitter and shared — for the first time — the story of how she was sexually assaulted on a city bus when she was 12 years old. She then asked women to tweet...


My first sexual assault, #notokay

Tue, 18 Oct 2016 06:30:00 PDT

I discovered the #NotOkay Twitter campaign quite by accident. After hearing the recording of Donald Trump bragging about sexually assaulting women years ago, released on a Friday, I was too disgusted and upset to pay much attention to the news the rest of that weekend and avoided watching the second...


Choosing food, fellowship over Trump's division

Tue, 18 Oct 2016 06:30:00 PDT

As the presidential campaign winds down, an increasingly desperate Donald Trump is casting doubt on the legitimacy of the entire democratic process. Should he lose to Hillary Clinton in a few weeks, he says, the blame will lie with a corrupt political system and an equally corrupt media industry...


An act of 'political terrorism'

Mon, 17 Oct 2016 10:52:00 PDT

The fire-bombing of a Republican Party headquarters in North Carolina over the weekend was despicable. The spray-painted message accompanying the act, "Nazi Republicans, leave town or else," places it squarely in the context of what North Carolina Republican Party Chairman Dallas Woodhouse called...


Paterakis' legacy

Mon, 17 Oct 2016 10:05:00 PDT

John Paterakis Sr.'s death Sunday came at an auspicious time for evaluating his legacy. The bakery magnate, developer and philanthropist in Baltimore's Greek community left an indelible mark on his home town, reshaping it physically and politically in ways that loomed over this year's debate on...


Confronting racism as a white man

Mon, 17 Oct 2016 09:04:00 PDT

As a preteen growing up under the safe blanket of a predominantly white suburban Maryland neighborhood, I was unequivocally drawn to the vibrant threads of black culture. I revered so many of its outspoken heroes: Frederick Douglass, Martin Luther King, Muhammad Ali, Marvin Gaye, Tupac Shakur,...
