My latest for RH Reality Check about Tennessee's horrible bill that would criminalize pregnant women suffering from drug addiction.
SB 1391 may not target Black women specifically, but history tells us that laws that do not specifically target people of color nevertheless tend to disparately affect people of color.

The president is working, he's a politician...The media is doing there job as well, fueling the flames of pictures taking out of context. 1st lady sat tentatively listening and watching the ceremony. The rest your mind made up. If they had thought like most, they could be back in Chicago doing as most.
