Tue, 06/05/2012 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
As Joe prepares for his annual hiatus, he and Abe survey the State of the Union.

 The State of the Union is screwed. Four years into the New Depression, the economy still lags and working people suffer while the ruling class rolls in profligate wealth. Inequality grows more extreme. The wars drag on. The modern surveillance state is a reality. The planet grows warmer.

What's to be done? Do we play by the rules, and rely on our democratic institutions? If so, whom do we support? Does it matter? Is it time for a more creative solution?

In Joe's last show before his annual summer break, he and Abe survey the State of the Union.

We begin with a speech given by Michelle Alexander in New York in February of 2010, and then will hear from various community members who participated in a Book Group at the Talking Drum Bookstore, located in Reflections coffee shop on NE Killingsworth. This group is going through the book in six weeks, chapter by chapter, to study how and why a majority of young Black men in major American cities are locked behind bars and how  the U.S. criminal justice system functions as a contemporary system of racial control, even as it formally adheres to the principle of color blindness.
