In December, an Ohio grand jury decided not to indict two white Cleveland police officers in the fatal shooting of Tamir Rice, a black 12-year-old boy who was playing with a pellet gun. That decision prompted a protest, shown here. On Friday, former Ohio state Sen. Nina Turner, who co-chairs Ohio Gov. John Kasich's Ohio Collaborative Community-Police Advisory Board, called the Republican National Convention in Cleveland a “powder keg” and said the fatal shooting of Dallas police officers “puts more gasoline and dynamite and the match on top of all of that.”

  • Virginia's newly-elected openly transgender state representative: Discrimination is a disqualifier

    Virginia Democrat Danica Roem, the US’s first openly transgender state representative, gave a thank-you speech following the announcement of her win on Tuesday, November 7. She beat Bob Marshall, who had served in Virginia’s House of Delegates since 1992. Marshall introduced a “bathroom bill” earlier in the year, requiring people to use only the restroom that matched their biological sex. The bill was not passed. This video shows Roem’s victory speech at the election night watch party. “To every person who’s ever been singled out, who’s ever been stigmatized, who’s ever been the misfit… This one’s for you,” Roem said to a crowd of cheering supporters.
