From a letter written to  Jenka Soderberg...

30 miles from the nearest town, hidden in the Louisiana hills, traveling along a long twisting road at a dead end you will find Angola, a former plantation now a prison the size of  Manhattan which is unlike any other known at this point in time.

A little racism with your tea?

April 20, 2009

I was all set to write a brilliant psychosocial expose of the racist undercurrent of the April 15 Teabag Parties, and then I saw this video of Janean Garofalo and Kieth Olbermann hitting the nail on the head.

(I'm going to figure out how to embed video, I swear it.)

At the end of the day, the teabaggers are racists. It's the only intellectual thread (and I use that term loosely) that unifies all of Teabaggerdom. They're not really protesting taxes, because the president just lowered the taxes of the vast majority of the teabaggers. They're not really protesting the national debt, or deficit spending, because they didn't seem to give a shit when Dubya was emptying the Treasury into Iraq. They're not really protesting Obama's alleged Muslim-ness, 'cuz he's a Christisn. No, they're upset because there's a Black Guy in the White House.

Don't believe me? Check out these pictures:

Short Description: 
How do we build an economy that's green AND fair?

From the White House to City Hall, everyone's talking about making the transition to a new green economy. But how do we make sure this new economy doesn't perpetuate the disparities of the old one? Can we make the shift without making things even worse for those already struggling with economic and environmental injustice? How can we ensure that all communities benefit from this transition?

This week on Voices from the Edge, Dave talks with Vien Truong, Senior Policy Associate for Green For All, a national non-profit organization working to build "an inclusive green economy strong enough to lift people out of poverty." Truong works with state policymakers and community leaders in creating green job policies and programs throughout the country. Also joining the conversation will be Mike Leachman, a policy analyst at the Oregon Center for Public Policy and that organization's representative in the Oregon Apollo Alliance, a coalition of labor, business, environmental and community organizations working for a clean energy revolution that will create high-quality green-collar jobs. Join us in the discussion about how we make Oregon's new economy green and fair.
