My blackness does not require affirmation from the Disney/Marvel Comics Universe, where Tony Stark is a greedy Pentagon contractor, where Captain America is a genetically modified organism, where the Wakandan king and the wannabe king both work with/for the CIA, and where Daredevil's pals (season 1 episode 4) note that investigative reporting on "teachers union scandals" is as personally perilous as crossing the Mafia. |

Lessons From Cuba.
Will Podmore | counterpunch.org | 2018-03-06
The withdrawal of Soviet aid in 1990 left Cuba's economy on a knife-edge. Cubans lost all their markets in sugar. They ceased to receive foodstuffs, fuel, wood, soap, raw materials. Calories and protein intake were reduced by half. Plans for nuclear energy had to be abandoned. The US intensified its blockade, passing the Helms-Burton Act. It was a case of adapt or die.

Social Media and the Rise of the 'Consistent Liberal'.
Jim Naureckas | FAIR | 2018-03-06
New York's depiction ( 3/1/18) of "young people…staying liberal." | The Pew Research Center ( 3/1/18) recently released a survey on political attitudes by generation. "America is politically sorted by generations in a way it never has before," was the takeaway of New York's Jonathan Chait ( 3/1/18). | Well, sort of. The generational divide is a striking feature of US politics, but it's not exactly breaking news. While as recently as the 2000 election, young people were the least likely age group to vote for the Democrat, and old folks the most, since 2008 the generations have voted the stereotype of left-leaning youth and conservative elders. That's still happening, Pew finds. | What's more striking to me in Pew's findings is how voters of all generations have shifted to the left–mostly by becoming more consistently progressive, mostly…

Robert Mackey | The Intercept | 2018-03-06
Voters in Lombardy, the region of northern Italy that includes Milan, elected a new governor this week, giving a landslide victory to a far-right candidate who said during the campaign that Italy must expel hundreds of thousands of immigrants in order to defend the "white race." | Attilio Fontana, the candidate of the far-right Northern League, made the remark in January as he tried to explain why his party's promise to "stop the invasion" of Italy by African immigrants was not racist. | Speaking on his party's radio station, Fontana said that the league's promise to deport all 600,000 undocumented immigrants who have arrived in Italy since 2014, mostly from Africa, was "not an issue of being xenophobic or racist, but a question of being logical or rational." | "We can't take in everyone," he argued, "because if we did, we…

CBO Warns Bipartisan Bank Bill Heightens Risk of Financial Crisis.
David Dayen | The Intercept | 2018-03-06
The Congressional Budget Office confirmed on Monday that bank lobbyists had successfully altered language of the so-called Citigroup carve-out, potentially allowing mega-banks Citi and JPMorgan Chase to add leverage and put more debt-fueled risk on their balance sheets. CBO gave Citi and JPMorgan a 50 percent chance of convincing regulators to let them take the carve-out, and their lobbyists are still working to increase that probability to 100 percent. | Factoring in the reality that the major banks will be lobbying regulators in the Trump administration could plausibly increase the likelihood of their success. | CBO's cost estimate of S.2155, the bipartisan bank deregulation bill that faced its first test vote today, was obtained by the Washington Post on Monday and released publicly Tuesday morning.

Lori Wallach and Michael Hudson Debate Trump's Plan to Impose Steel and Aluminum Tariffs.
Truthout Stories | 2018-03-06
"Trade wars are good, and easy to win." That's the message President Trump tweeted on Friday, sending shockwaves across the globe and sparking fear of impending economic volatility. On Thursday, world stock markets tumbled after Trump announced he plans to impose new tariffs on imports of foreign steel and aluminum.

Prominent Republicans and business leaders have denounced Trump's plan, saying the tariffs will hurt the manufacturing industry and US competitiveness.
