An interview with the Urban League's Midge Purcell about their report on the state of Black Oregon.

Seven months after the inauguration of the first Black president, a statewide report on the condition of African Americans in Oregon reveals that black Oregonians remain at or near the bottom of every meaningful social and economic measure. African Americans in Oregon have significantly higher infant mortality rates, are more likely to live in poverty, have higher levels of unemployment, are half as likely to own their own homes and are far more likely to die of diseases such as diabetes than their white counterparts.

Masters of the Universe, Redux

July 21, 2009

Rolling Stone's Matt Taibbi gets to the heart of how one investment banking firm, Goldman Sachs, has engineered bubble after speculative bubble in the marketplace for years, always positioning itself to prosper in the wake of each disaster -- often at taxpayer expense.

What you need to know is the big picture: If America is circling the drain, Goldman Sachs has found a way to be that drain — an extremely unfortunate loophole in the system of Western democratic capitalism, which never foresaw that in a society governed passively by free markets and free elections, organized greed always defeats disorganized democracy.

Read it. It's a blueprint of how the executive class rigs the game for its own benefit.

Portlanders break the blockade on Cuba!

For more than 40 years, the Cuban people have faced an economic, commercial and financial blockade by the government of the United States of America.

 

Cubans say this is one of the most cruel, inhuman and prolonged policies of hostility endured by any people in the history of human civilization.

 

Throughout these last 44 years, a total of 10 different U.S. administrations have reinforced and expanded the complex system of laws and measures that make up the blockade established by the U.S. government against the people of Cuba.
