    Amazon titan Jeff Bezos’s ex-wife revealed Tuesday that she has given away nearly $1.7 billion to nonprofits battling everything from racial and gender inequities to global warming. “Like many, I watched the first half of 2020 with a mixture of heartbreak and horror,” MacKenzie Bezos wrote in an open letter posted on the Web site Medium. “Life will never stop finding fresh ways to expose inequities in our systems; or waking us up to the fact that a civilization this imbalanced is not only unjust, but also unstable.” MacKenzie — whose divorce from Jeff made her one of the richest...

The media narrative has been: during the day peaceful protesters hold rallies against police brutality, and then at night an entirely different group of people come in to riot, vandalize, and loot. “Peaceful...
