By The News Jun 24, 2008

Don Imus Sparks Allegations of Racism Again "Imus is defending a remark he made about the arrests of suspended Dallas Cowboys cornerback Adam Jones, saying he was trying to ‘make a sarcastic point." Associated Press. Supreme Court Rules Against Environment "The Supreme Court sided with the White House on Monday in two cases involving national security and worries about the environment, strengthening the Bush administration’s drive, at least for now, for sweeping executive powers in the post-9/11 world." New York Times. Muslim Voters Feel Slighted By Obama "While the senator has visited churches and synagogues, he has yet to appear at a single mosque. Muslim and Arab-American organizations have tried repeatedly to arrange meetings with Mr. Obama, but officials with those groups say their invitations — unlike those of their Jewish and Christian counterparts — have been ignored. Last week, two Muslim women wearing head scarves were barred by campaign volunteers from appearing behind Mr. Obama at a rally in Detroit." New York Times. The Color of Credit "The mortgage meltdown may widen the considerable gap in wealth that already exists between whites and people of color. Even worse, some proposals to fix the problem of limited access to credit may end up doing more harm than good." Washington Post.
