This week I dove into the consequences of zero-sum thinking around race with Heather McGhee (pictured above), author of “The Sum of Us.” Marissa Tirona recounted her harrowing experience with Covid-19, one year after her hospitalization in New York City. Our Covid Update examined vaccination rates among people of color. Our Body Politic national security contributor Holli Draines broke down what we need to know about threats to Capitol Hill. And Errin Haines of the 19th and Jess Morales Rocketto of the National Domestic Workers Alliance dissected the Covid relief package, the White House’s latest move on gender policy, and voter suppression in Sippin’ the Political Tea, our weekly political roundtable.
