  • Newton: The impact of the 'parent trigger'

    Newton: The impact of the 'parent trigger'
    This is what the revolution looks like: It's a rally in Lynwood where parents demand the right to exercise their power to shape their children's future; it's a dozen residents in a South-Central apartment gathering to compare notes on the failing...
  • Newton: Jan Perry, L.A.'s refreshingly candid mayoral candidate

    Newton: Jan Perry, L.A.'s refreshingly candid mayoral candidate
    Los Angeles city and county governments are full of officials who profess to be candid but who are, in fact, evasive or even deceptive. City Councilwoman Jan Perry is not one of them. She is refreshingly open, even blunt. She's affable, but she takes...
  • McManus: Wielding wedge issues

    McManus: Wielding wedge issues
    Once upon a time in American politics, there were things called "wedge issues," and they generally terrified Democrats. They were mostly social and cultural issues: abortion, feminism, gay rights, illegal immigration and race. Conservatives wielded them...
  • Jim Newton: Tackling the truth in Compton

    Jim Newton: Tackling the truth in Compton
    It is a source of fierce shame and more than a little defensiveness in Compton that the area's lone bastion of higher education, Compton Community College, lost its accreditation in 2005 after officials absconded with public money and the district came up...
  • McManus: Applying the 'ground game'

    McManus: Applying the 'ground game'
    Outside the old red-brick City Hall in Manassas, Va., Dorothy Cummings was beaming. She had finally persuaded her son Charles to register to vote — and now she was marching him into the registrar's office to make sure he got it done. "Three votes...
  • Patt Morrison Asks: George Regas, keeping faith

    Patt Morrison Asks: George Regas, keeping faith
    Yep, that was George Regas in that photo — the man in the purple ecclesiastical robe and handcuffs. The rector emeritus of All Saints Episcopal Church in Pasadena chose to get busted this month outside the downtown federal building protesting the...
  • Newton: Labor on the wane? Not in L.A.

    Newton: Labor on the wane? Not in L.A.
    This has been a hard couple years — on top of a hard era — for organized labor. The percentage of American workers who belong to a union has continued its long slide, dropping from 12.3% in 2009 to 11.9% in 2010. Those numbers are even starker...
  • President Obama: At odds with clear demographic trends toward multiracial pride

    President Obama: At odds with clear demographic trends toward multiracial pride
    It could have been a historic teaching moment. Instead, President Obama, the most famous mixed-race person in the world, checked off only one race — black — last year on his census form. And in so doing, he missed an opportunity to...
  • Rodriguez: The 'Mad Men' mystique

    Rodriguez: The 'Mad Men' mystique
    Who the heck would want to be like Betty or her ad man ex, Don? That's what I asked myself recently when I passed a Banana Republic window display featuring the retailer's new "Mad Men"-inspired clothing collection. "Are you a Betty?" read a poster with...
  • Goldberg: 'That's racist' as a punch line

    Goldberg: 'That's racist' as a punch line
    "That's racist." It's a comedic catchphrase these days, popularized by an online clip from a 2005 TV show "Wonder Showzen" on MTV2. It's not as iconic as Gary Coleman's "What 'chu talkin' 'bout, Willis?" or Fonzie's "Ayyyyyy" or even Bart Simpson's "Don'...
  • Gregory Rodriguez: The unhappy white majority

    Gregory Rodriguez: The unhappy white majority
    "White Americans See Anti-White Bias on the Rise." That was a headline in the Wall Street Journal this month, and more than any other domestic index or statistic, it's that sentiment that should worry you about America's future. While many commentators...
