During the discovery process in the civil rights lawsuit Holmes vs City of Racine there were 18 emails exchanges between the City of Racine and the newspaper, The Racine Journal Times. These emails have shown up on the list to be used as exhibit evidence at trail. These are not random emails the plaintiffs attorneys have submitted, these emails as exhibit / evidence are to be used at the Holmes trail. Plaintiffs have long felt the Racine Journal Times has been working with the City of Racine to close their bars down. Pattern or Practice peels the veneer off that shoddy pretense and provides a stark view of what institutionalized racism looks like.
The Racine Journal Times sued the City of Racine under the open records act to find out who voted how on the decision to reopen the search for a new police chief. Alderman Eric Marcus discusses the law regarding such a request as well as its legitimacy. The Commission had denied the request by the Journal Times for the records.

At Williams College in Massachusetts there is a sculpture of two men sitting on a log, deep in conversation. One is Mark Hopkins, who led the liberal arts college for 36 years in the mid-19th century. The other is one of his students. According to Williams’ current president, Adam Falk, the sculpture symbolises the close interaction that has existed between scholars and their pupils since the college was founded in 1793. “The idea is that’s all a college really is – faculty and students – and the rest is really there just to support that,” he says. According to Falk, the college’s commitment to providing the best possible learning environment is epitomised by its student-to-staff ratio of just six to one, meaning that “most of the classes are small”.
