Take the Bait to the Debate

Attacks in NY, NJ and Minnesota put terror central to the public debate, but must we take the bait to overreact with fears, phobias and martial measures?

Killings of unarmed Black men by police lead to outrage by some, race-baiting by others, including Trump’s calls for stop-and-frisk, his latest play in dog-whistle politics.

Days away from the first debate, each candidate tests out attacks over character, corruption, keeping us safe, a shadow fight before Monday’s showdown.

Trump’s a proven master baiter and debater, and Clinton’s a steady presence on the big stage. It may be whichever candidate doesn’t take the bait is the one who ultimately takes the debate.
