    History.House ^ | 6/21/20
    On this date, Howard Smith of Virginia, chairman of the House Rules Committee, introduced the Southern Manifesto in a speech on the House Floor. Formally titled the “Declaration of Constitutional Principles,” it was signed by 82 Representatives and 19 Senators—roughly one-fifth of the membership of Congress and all from states that had once composed the Confederacy. It marked a moment of southern defiance against the Supreme Court’s 1954 landmark Brown v. the Board of Education of Topeka (KS) decision, which determined that separate school facilities for black and white school children were inherently unequal. The Manifesto attacked Brown as an...

    Last week, in the aftermath of the national fury that has erupted, and continues, over the apparent killing by a Minneapolis police officer of a black man, George Floyd, while he was being taken into custody, a letter appeared in my inbox from Christina H. Paxson, president of Brown University, where I teach. The letter, sent to thousands of students, staff, and faculty, was cosigned by many of Brown’s senior administrators and deans. “We write to you today as leaders of this university,” the letter begins, “to express first deep sadness, but also anger, regarding the racist incidents that continue...

It wasn’t clouded by simpering silliness like Mayor Jacob Frey of Minneapolis who urged people to understand the sadness of the rioters....“We have you on camera, you idiot,” Brown said. “We’re going to find you and prosecute you to the full extent of the law. So get ready, because we’re coming.”....

    Gavin Newsom is succeeding someone who could be considered his quasi-uncle, since his inauguration continues the decades-long saga of four San Francisco families intertwined by blood, by marriage, by money, by culture and, of course, by politics – the Browns, the Newsoms, the Pelosis and the Gettys. The connections date back at least 80 years, to when Jerry Brown’s father, Pat Brown, ran for San Francisco district attorney, losing in 1939 but winning in 1943, with the help of his close friend and Gavin Newsom’s grandfather, businessman William Newsom. Fast forward two decades...

    Warren, Harris stand with activists against Obama officials Democratic presidential candidates continue to throw shade on the legacy of former President Barack Obama. They rarely criticize him by name, but many of the 2020 hopefuls have implicitly attacked Obama's record on health care, immigration, and climate change, among other issues. The latest example of implied criticism, courtesy of two prominent contenders, focuses on the Obama administration's investigation into the controversial police-involved shooting death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., in 2014. Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass) and Kamala Harris (D., Calif.) marked the five-year anniversary of Brown's death on Twitter...

    Democratic presidential candidate Kamala Harris has released 15 years of tax returns, including her returns for 2018, and the California senator reports that she and her husband had a federal tax bill of about $700,000 on an adjusted gross joint income of about $1.9 million last year. The documents released Sunday provide the fullest picture of her finances as she pursues a White House bid. Harris reported an income of about $157,000 in 2018 from her job as a senator, as well as about $320,000 in net income as a writer; a book she wrote was published earlier this year....

Sherrod Brown of Ohio said Thursday that he will not run for president in 2020, a decision that comes after months of preparations for the Democratic primaries and just days after he appeared to be leaning toward a launch later this month. Brown, who revealed his plans in a conference call with home-state reporters, said he could be more effective in the Senate, where he just won a third term.

    Democrat Sherrod Brown brought a pro-worker message Saturday to Las Vegas casino workers who are members of what’s considered Nevada’s most powerful labor union, declaring that if he decides to run for president, he will be “the most pro-union candidate.” Brown, a U.S. senator from Ohio, said he’s going to make a decision about 2020 in the next month. He addressed workers in the union hall of the Culinary Union as he kicked off a trip to the early Western caucus state, which is seen as a key test of a candidate’s appeal to diverse demographics. Brown is the first...

I just broke news!” “Listen, I think [it] gives a lot of people joy,” she added. “And we need more joy.” Harris, a candidate for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, looked to dispel a rumor raised by co-host Charlamagne tha God that...

    (CNSNews.com) - Moments after repeating his call for the resignation of Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam, Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) declared on Sunday that President Donald Trump is "racist." Brown pointed to "news reports" and books to back up his claim. Chuck Todd, the host of NBC's "Meet the Press," asked Brown why "folks" such as Gov. Northam "are now being held accountable for blackface." "Well, I think this country hasn't dealt well with the issues of race," Brown said. "I mean, we have a president who's a racist. Who we have, you know--"

We have a president who's a racist," Brown, who is considering running for president in 2020, said during an interview on NBC's "Meet the Press." Host Chuck Todd then pressed Brown over whether he believes that Trump "in his heart" is a racist. Brown pointed to Trump's past claims that former President Obama wasn't born in the U.S. and allegations that he discriminated against black people as a real estate owner. "I don't know what 'in his heart' means....
