Melanin and mammaries - have centuries of struggle come to this?
"What America thinks of as freedom and what I think of as freedom are two different things," Goodwin told me at the time. "I want to get a house, day care and go to college. My freedoms are small. But I can't give up ... The ideals of this country are that anybody could come back to America and make a better life ... It's a land of opportunity. In this country alone, if you put forth the effort, you can bear fruit."
Death of an innocent, Georgia style
Unless we can save him, Troy Davis, 38, will die on Tuesday at 7pm (midnight BST). The state of Georgia will execute him by lethal injection for the murder of a police officer in 1989. The trouble is, three of the four witnesses who testified at his trial have recanted. Meanwhile two other witnesses who say Davis confessed to them have done likewise. They say they made their statements under pressure from the police. But the courts refuse to hear them. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution has argued for a pause to examine the new evidence in an editorial.
Life on the run
Working like slaves
The satirical US magazine the Onion has a great video spoof entitled Gap - For Kids by Kids. Ramming home the point that so much of the west's casualwear is produced under appalling conditions, it draws a link between the children who wear clothes and the people who produce them.
