George Washington slave book pulled after criticism

AP

A children’s picture book about George Washington and his slaves has been pulled by publishers Scholastic. A Birthday Cake for George Washington tells the story of Washington’s slave Hercules, a cook, and his daughter. It had been criticised for its images of smiling slaves, and described as being “highly problematic”. Scholastic said in a statement that without more historical context, the book “may give a false impression of the reality of the lives of slaves”. The book, telling the story of Hercules and Delia making a cake together, had been released on 5 January. It was met with a barrage of one-star…

Photograph, Andrew Burton,Getty Images

Hillary Clinton will address a Martin Luther King Day rally at the South Carolina state house in Columbia this morning in an attempt to shore up her support among Southern African American voters as a firewall against the surging tide of Democratic rival Bernie Sanders. With polls tightening in Iowa and Sanders continuing to show a lead in New Hampshire where he has a home advantage, South Carolina, the first state in the South to hold a primary, is increasingly seen within the Clinton camp as an essential buttress against the senator for Vermont’s insurgency. Clinton advisers are mindful that Barack Obama defeated her in…

Harvard ‘black tape’ vandalism brings law school’s controversial past to fore

The Guardian

Derecka Purnell was one of the first Harvard law students to see the black tape placed over about six portraits of Harvard Law School’s tenured black facultyWednesday morning. “I was surprised to see it …” Purnell said, before reconsidering: “Actually, I wasn’t surprised at all.” The incident comes at a moment when, nationwide, college students are demanding action against the entrenched white supremacy and racism they say still pervades campus life. Even at elite liberal universities such as Harvard – places where some might believe that racist symbols and behavior are a relic of the past – these discussions and protests persist. And…

President Obama says protecting America’s homeland does not mean it must close its borders to refugees. “We have shown that we can welcome refugees and ensure our security — that there’s no contradiction,” he said Saturday in Malaysia, according to The Washington Post.   “As long as I’m president, we will keep stepping up and ensure America remains, as it has always been, a place where people who in other parts of the world are subject to violence and discrimination have in America a friend and a place of refuge,” Obama said while visiting a refugee center in Kuala Lumpur. “[Refugee…
