The violence of segregation has threaded through too many stories this year.
The arrant racial divides that exploded in Ferguson following Michael Brown's death. "The New Jim Crow"—segregation by black incarceration—as the seed in the police brutality that led to Eric Garner's death by a white police officer. Or #GamerGate, with its hideous online threats to women who dared criticize the male-dominated world of video games. Or the racial and gender politics trickling out of the very white, very male New Republic's media meltdown.
