GREEN, Volume 30 Issue 11

The other has been with us far too long: Systemic racism, which has most-recently manifested itself in white vigilantes taking the life of a jogging black man, a woman in Central Park weaponizing her whiteness against a black bird-watcher, and police violence taking the lives of George Floyd in Minneapolis and Breonna Taylor in Louisville, and the resulting protests and rage in the streets.  More

This led to the creation and growth of super PACs and the rise of dark money spending, increasing the power of the wealthiest donors and special interests to influence our elections.
