where we stand

DURING ONE OF OUR RECENT TIME 100 TALKS, the singer, actor and activist Andra Day made a point that resonated deeply and echoes words I have heard repeatedly in recent days from colleagues and other people in my life. Being a true advocate of change, a true ally to the Black community, requires “the willingness to be uncomfortable.” This has been a time of essential discomfort for the U.S.—“a moment of reckoning that has been a long time coming,” as my colleague Justin Worland writes in this issue’s cover story, a searing and personal accounting of American denial about systemic racism. “Politicians, activists and everyday people can and should debate what to do about this reality,” Justin writes, “but it is a reality, one evident in volumes of data, research and…

the reckoning goes global

WHEN LONDON-BASED LAWYER AND women’s-rights activist Shola Mos-Shogbamimu first heard the news of George Floyd’s killing on May 25, her gut reaction was raw anger. “George Floyd was every black person in that video,” she says. “Every one of us can identify with that knee on our necks, not letting up, with that pressure increasing until it suffocates us.” Floyd’s final words, “I can’t breathe,” have been emblazoned on placards and chanted by crowds from Sydney to Cape Town, Paris to Seoul, who have gathered in global solidarity protests since May 30. “We’re trying to show that despite being bombed and losing people and then being called terrorists, we still feel empathy. We still feel for people like George Floyd who are being oppressed in other parts of the world,” says…

in border standoff, india and china try to keep the peace

GENERALS FROM INDIA AND CHINA MET high in the Himalayas on June 6 for talks aimed at defusing border tensions between the world’s two most populous nations. Each nuclear-armed side has accused the other of provocations along their 2,000-mile disputed frontier. China believes a new Indian road near the border upends the balance of power; Indian hawks say China has moved troops into their territory. In early May, fistfights broke out between soldiers. Weeks on, officials are still trying to stop the scuffles from escalating into a shooting war. BLURRED LINES Although troops from both sides reportedly pulled back in some places on June 9, the situation remains tense. Accurate information is hard to come by, but analysts say there has been a Chinese buildup of military hardware behind the “line…

North Korea stops talking to South Korea Pyongyang said June 9 it would cut off all lines of communication with South Korea and start treating the nation as an “enemy.” Relations between the two have deteriorated since nuclear negotiations with President Trump collapsed in February 2019. Election trouble in Georgia Primary elections in Georgia were marred by hours-long waits and problems with new voting machines on June 9, prompting the Georgia secretary of state to open an investigation and summoning echoes of the state’s disputed governor’s race in 2018. Some of the worst issues occurred in majority African-American areas. Iran sentences ‘CIA agent’ to death An Iranian blamed for sending the U.S. information about the whereabouts of General Qasem Soleimani, a powerful figure killed by a U.S. drone strike in January, was sentenced to death…

is covid-19 aid getting to black-owned businesses?

WHEN THE PAYCHECK PROTECTION Program (PPP) launched in April, it came with promises of equitable relief for U.S. small businesses ravaged by the coronavirus. By June 4, when the employment report showed 2.5 million U.S. jobs added in May, President Donald Trump framed both the program and the report as good news for minorities. “A great day in terms of equality,” he said as he prepared to sign legislation easing PPP forgiveness requirements. In fact, those same figures showed unemployment had grown for African Americans to its highest point in over a decade. African Americans are disproportionately suffering from both COVID-19 and its economic fallout, and the PPP system looks like an extension of the problem. The Small Business Administration, which runs the program, has not released a list of businesses…
