America's new system of racism and organizing against it

Download Podcast 

More than half a century after historic court rulings and legislation that outlawed school segregation and extended voting and civil rights to black and other people of color, there is a new system of institutional racism in America. The right-wing dominated U.S. Supreme Court in recent years has gutted the 1965 Voting Rights Act and upheld various state laws and ballot initiatives that effectively deny people of color of the right to equal access to a college education. Meanwhile, super-rich white supremacists use their wealth to help racist white politicians get elected to Congress and state legislatures. Join us for a discussion about the new system of institutional racism in America and what must be done to organize against it.
