Capitol Riot

Nailing the Capitol Terrorists Won’t be Easy

By Commentaries/Opinions

By Earl Ofari Hutchinson— Two things are certain about the Capitol terror attack January 6. And one thing isn’t. The certainties first. One, Trump will not be charged with incitement to riot.

By Editors' Choice

For me, it began when white storm clouds of terror hung over the home of Mose Wright late one August night in 1955, when white, armed terrorists demanded his great-nephew, 14-year-old Emmett Till, be handed over to them.

Was the insurrection an inside job?

By Dr. Julianne Malveaux

By Dr. Julianne Malveaux — If you watched the disgraceful invasion of the United States Capitol and the horrific destruction that took place on January 6, you observed a legion of limited-intelligence low-life louts.

Wednesday’s Domestic Terrorist acts have caused one police officer to lose his life and dozens more were injured.
