Race and Recession: An Interview with Seth Wessler

program date: 
Wed, 05/20/2009

The current recession is not an equal opportunity crisis. People of color are experiencing job loss, foreclosures and lack of healthcare at alarmingly higher rates than white Americans. These disparities are not a coincidence but rather the result of structural barriers that have been taking a toll on people of color long before the subprime meltdown.

Joe and Abe solve the Curious Case of the Cowardly War-Mongers

Closing the Guantanamo Bay gulag would be nice and all, but not if we have to bring the terrorists back to the United States! Apparently they're all 10 feet tall with various mutant superpowers, and no American prison can hold them. As soon as we brought them here, they would break out en masse and start a cross-country rampage, burning and pillaging as their ranks are swelled by liberal America-haters and other ne-er-do-wells.

Joe and Abe examine the rank cowardice behind the Senate's vote to keep the Guantanamo prison open.
