The Abe and Joe Talk Radio Show on 06/22/10

Air date: 
Tue, 06/22/2010 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
Is Oregon an anti-immigrant state? A new study suggests it is.

A study commissioned by a consortium of Northwestern public radio stations says that a majority of Northwesterners -- Oregonians, Washingtonians and Idahoans, or whatever they call themselves -- agree with the anti-immigrant law passed recently in Arizona. In Oregon, that support is at 61 percent.

What does it mean? Is anti-immigrant sentiment more widespread than we thought? And what is that sentiment exactly? Fear, born of cultural ignorance? Economic anxiety? Good ol' racism? A toxic brew of all three? With Joe on vacation, Abe leads the discussion.

There was an action event held on Thursday, June 10th to stop the annual slaughtering on dolphins.  There were petitions to be signed which will be sent to the government in Japan, the United States government, and the International Whaling Commission.  With the legislation to possibly lift the moratorium on whaling coming up this month in Morocco, it is extremely important for people to get involved in anyway that they can.  Joe Chisolm, production producer for the 2009 documentary "The Cove", was a guest speaker at this event and we all of the audio from it.  "The Cove" won over 60 awards and we urge you to watch it... very emotional, informative, and heart-wrenching.
