White women must give up their power and make space for a Black woman Supreme Court justice

OPINION: White women who consider themselves allies should also consider the unfairness in Amy Coney Barrett’s nomination — and act now.

The PlayStation 5 version of the game, which originally came out for PS4 in 2018, boasts plenty of technological advantages to the original release, but most fans have gotten hung-up on Peter Parker’s new look, which might look familiar to some.
