For some, racism is a tangible reality. For others, it’s a nebulous concept. It depends on your personal experience, circle of friends, attitude towards diversity and inclusion, among other factors, that dictate whether or not you believe racism is reality or myth.

Luckily, some smart people know how to start; The Supreme Court just sided with immigration activists in Round One of several showdown court battles; So much emphasis has been placed on tearing down Confederate-glorifying statues but New Mexican activists are battling another category of statues with oppressive legacies; and Mexican archeologists just discovered this 2,000-year-old timeless artifact. Go beyond the headlines…
