On Into America presents: Uncounted Millions: The Power of Reparations, award-winning MSNBC correspondent Trymaine Lee dives into one of today’s most pressing debates: reparations. Months ago, Trymaine discovered the little-known story of Gabriel Coakley and it blew his mind. In the midst of the Civil War, Coakley was among a handful of Black people who found a way to get compensated for slavery by the US government. On Uncounted Millions, Trymaine talks to Coakley’s descendants about how reparations forever changed their family’s trajectory. And as more cities and states consider the issue at a policy level, he imagines how reparations might shape the whole of Black America.  Listen to the first episode now. And follow the show:

Netanyahu has been spoiling for a fight for decades. His problem is more than anger, it's rage, which will be incredibly difficult to contain.

Rachel. Put a top hat on Trump's mug shot. It's a rehash of USA needs YOU. It's another dog whistle! Another practice call to arms.

On listening to this episode it occurs to me that it might only be a matter of time until the GOP want to retrospectively pursue women who have abortions in their past.
