(Maxine Bernstein) Suspending a driver’s license because of unpaid traffic fines unfairly targets poor people and is unconstitutional, a class-action lawsuit alleges.

My Commentary: Keep telling yourself that all of this petty bureaucracy, and the “need” for it is about safety, rather than disenfranchisement… Keep clamoring for our enslavement…

(Jack Morse) The newly created Department of Homelessness & Supportive Housing is set to begin the process of removing every single homeless encampment in the city — tent by tent. CBS 5 reports that the department’s deputy director, Sam Dodge, laid out this goal in conversation with the channel at the same time as SFPD Northern Station Captain John Jaimerena was telling Hoodline that his officers have no plans to take down encampments as it isn’t illegal to be homeless.

“We’ve seen an increase in encampments in the Mission district between 14th street and 19th street and South Van Ness and Harrison,” Dodge told CBS 5. “To try to go person by person, offer everyone at least shelter so that we can resolve an encampment.”

When pressed by CBS 5 if to “resolve an encampment” meant “taking them down,” Dodge replied, “yeah, that’s right.”

() During the 1950s and 60s, America’s black families fought a difficult battle to integrate the public schools, hoping to give their children a better education. Because of this hard-won victory, many black parents have been strong supporters of public schools in the subsequent decades.

But that support may be changing.
