Rinku Sen: ‘We Are the Majority and We Demand Justice’

As we saw in this election, people of color can no longer be called “minorities.” It’s time to seize that power in the fight for true equality.

As we saw in this election, people of color are no longer “minorities.” Progressive alliances proved their power as a new majority, striking down the “three strikes” rule, protecting women’s rights and re-electing Barack Obama. But as Nation contributor and Colorlines.com publisher Rinku Sen said at this weekend’s “Facing Race” conference, the fight for racial justice is not yet finished. When protectors of the status quo ask, “what more do you want?”, we must demand the end of institutionalized segregation and inequality.

—Christie Thompson

The next battle in the fight for racial justice is ending the War on Drugs. Check out director Eugene Jarecki on “Voting Out the Drug War.”
