    Kamala Harris is qualified to be president. So why is Joe Biden holding her back? Despite our nation's progress in social equality, the systemic power held by older white men in America continues to obstruct the paths to success for younger Black women. The most current example? President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris. Members of Congress and other Democratic leaders have called on Biden to step aside as their party's presidential nominee − with some suggesting that Harris should take his place − after a devastating debate performance two weeks ago. But the president isn't backing down. On...

    British lawmakers have called on the government to open up a bespoke visa programme that could potentially allow hundreds of thousands of Palestinians to come into the UK in a similar manner to the scheme for Ukrainian refugees. Following a petition demanding the government “create a Palestinian Family Visa Scheme for Palestinian people affected by war,” the House of Commons debated the motion, with left-wing and even some Tory MPs backing the notion of opening up a specific scheme for Palestinians to come to Britain amid the military conflict between Israel and Islamist Hamas terrorists in Gaza.
