Justice For The Rest Of Us

A middle-aged social scientist who started blogging to support social justice and spread the gospel of non-violence. Though it may cost me followers, I will criticize the left when we make mistakes, including resorting to violence when it isn't necessary. Cesar Chavez, who organized disenfranchised migrant workers and Martin Luther King, who not only fought for civil rights but for economic justice, exemplify the principles I espouse here. But make no mistake about it: I am a proud member of the left.

On a personal note, I love Siamese cats, and I'm addicted to baseball. As a public service, I post one cute animal picture everyday. Don't be surprised to see something about music from the 60s every once in a while.

Students at Macalaster are staging a sit-in to protest the college’s decision not to cut ties with Wells Fargo bank — a notorious bank that was found by the DOJ to have engaged in reverse red lining. In reverse red lining, bankers give low income people loans at very high rates, a practice that led to a high rate of foreclsores and helped contribute to the 2008 crash.
