In clumsily deploying history, the Trump White House has insulted the memory of the past and failed to understand the moral urgency of the present.
One can debate ad nauseam whether refusing to stand for the national anthem or declining an invitation to the White House is an appropriate mode of protest, or whether failing to take such a stand signals complicity in injustice. What is undeniable is that the injustices prompting these actions are real and that progress against them is stagnating.
