"This country does not talk about race unless it is forced to talk about race. That is America's best kept secret, but at the same time America's greatest sin. ... America has never confronted its problems with race and its issues around racism."

– The Rev. Grayson Hagler on the recent shootings deaths of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile captured on cell phone video, leading up to the retaliatory shootings of Dallas police officers after a peaceful Black Lives Matter protest

After Week's Tragic Violence, Americans Remain Divided on Issues of Police Accountability and Race

MP3 Interview with Graylan Hagler, senior pastor, Plymouth Congregational United Church of Christ, Washington, D.C., conducted by Scott Harris

violence

After two years of focus on police violence, protests and debate, America just witnessed a tumultuous week, which began with the police shooting deaths of Philando Castile in Falcon Heights, Minnesota and Alton Sterling in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Both incidents documented in part on smart phone video recordings that went viral across American social media and around the globe. The police shootings of these two African-American men were followed by the murder of five police officers and the wounding of seven others in Dallas, Texas during a peaceful Black Lives Matter protest march. The sniper attack was carried out by a lone U.S. Army veteran who told police negotiators before his death that he was angry about recent police violence.  Story continues

The Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative, also known by its acronym, RGGI, includes all the New England states plus New York, Maryland and Delaware, in a cap and trade program to reduce carbon emissions regionwide and raise money from the sale of pollution permits to fund green energy projects.
