So Rich, So Poor - Why It's So Hard to End Poverty in America

Hosts Celeste Carey and Cecil Prescod speak with Peter Edelman, author of the new book So Rich, So Poor: Why It's So Hard to End Poverty in America. The income-level disparity in this country is now wider than at any point since the Great Depression. How can some be so rich, while others are so poor? According to Edelman, we have taken important positive steps without which 25 to 30 million more people would be poor, but poverty fluctuates with the business cycle. The structure of today’s economy has stultified wage growth for half of America’s workers—with even worse results at the bottom and for people of color—while bestowing billions on those at the top.

Hosts Cecil Prescod and Celeste Carey interview professor Dan Simon about his book In Doubt: The Psychology of the Criminal Justice Process. Simon is Professor of Law and Psychology at the University of Southern California.

The criminal justice process is unavoidably human.

Stephen Vladeck: Free Speech, Peacemakers and the Supreme Court

program date: 
Mon, 03/01/2010

Hosts Celeste Carey and Cecil Prescod speak with Stephen Vladeck, Professor at Washington College of Law, American University, about "Free Speech, Peacemakers and the Supreme Court." On Tuesday, Feb. 23, the Supreme Court heard a one hour oral argument for Holder v. Humanitarian Law Project (HLP) to determine whether several key terms in the definition of prohibited material support of terrorism violate the First and Fifth amendments. The case marks the first ever challenge to the Patriot Act at the Supreme Court level and addresses the overbroad scope of the prohibition on "material support" to listed terrorist organizations, which effectively criminalizes peacebuilding programs of U.S. organizations in conflict zones around the world.

Michael Klare on "The Second Decade, The World in 2020"

Mon, 01/11/2010

Hosts Celeste Carey and Cecil Prescod look at the fate of China, the United States, the Global South, and planet with guest Michael T. Klare, whose recent article on TomDispatch is "The Second Decade, The World in 2020" http://www.tomdispatch.com/archive/175186/

Michael Klare, the Five College Professor of Peace and World Security Studies (a joint appointment at Amherst College, Hampshire College, Mount Holyoke College, Smith College, and the University of Massachusetts at Amherst), and Director of the Five College Program in Peace and World Security Studies (PAWSS), a position he has held since 1985 is the author of Rising Powers, Shrinking Planet: The New Geopolitics of Energy,

Klare contends that while the first decade of the twenty-first century still looked at least somewhat like the world of 1999, by 2020, this planet will have a genuinely different look to it. Momentous shifts in global power relations and a changing of the imperial guard, just now becoming apparent, will be far more pronounced by that year as new actors, new trends, new concerns, and new institutions dominate the global space.

Klare tracks all of this from China's rise to America's relative descent and the increasing power and energy of the global South. But that's only part of his canny, wide-ranging analysis of where we'll be a decade from now. The kicker is that "blowback," still a political concept today, will become a natural one by 2020. As Klare writes of the imperial and other politics of the planet to come: "Nonetheless, all of this is the norm of history, no matter how dramatic it may seem to us. Less normal -- and so the wild card of the second decade (and beyond) -- is intervention by the planet itself. Blowback, which we think of as a political phenomenon, will by 2020 have gained a natural component. Nature is poised to strike back in unpredictable ways whose effects could be unnerving and possibly devastating."

Religious garb in public schools: yes? or no?

program: 
More Talk Radio
program date: 
Mon, 12/21/2009

 Celeste Carey and Cecil Prescod host a discussion of the issue of wearing religious clothing in public schools. In Oregon teachers are prohibited from wearing religious garb in school. The law dates to 1923  when an open supporter of the Ku Klux Klan, presided as speaker of the Oregon House. It was included in the Alien Property Act of 1923, which prohibited Japanese Americans from owning property in Oregon, and was designed to prevent nuns and priests from wearing religious garb in classrooms.

Oregon House Speaker Dave Hunt says the law should be overturned. Hunt plans to introduce a bill to repeal the law in the upcoming special session.

Speaking in favor of overturning the Oregon law is Kevin Finney, currently public policy director at the Ecumenical Ministries of Oregon (EMO). In recent years, Kevin Finney has served as political director with the Oregon League of Conservation Voters, California outreach coordinator with the Union of Concerned Scientists and climate change program director with the Coalition for Clean Air.

Opposing the law change is Oregon Attorney Charlie Hinkle, who has been lead counsel in many landmark decisions construing the Oregon Constitution in the areas of religious liberty, open courts, commercial speech, election law, and property rights. He is one of the most active and prominent cooperating attorneys for the American Civil Liberties Union in Oregon.

My error

Hi, Cecil, I called in to your fine program this morning to give the announcement about Imam Mamadou Toure's presentation at the Quaker Meetinghouse. Apparently I gave the wrong date: the correct date is Friday, January 25. I would greatly appreciate it if you could give that date on next week's program, I'm sorry to have confused things.
Peace, Jim Metcalfe
