Editor’s note

“We must reject extreme political rhetoric.”

We highlighted two quotes.

On the first page:

“Why were the troops sent to South Dakota in the first place, when there were no lives lost and no property threatened in the alleged Indian ‘uprising’?”

On the second:

“Continuing inequalities in society cannot be explained away by blaming somebody else’s racism. They implicate anyone who participates in the system without addressing its flaws.”
