... Email From AZDEM.org..Imagine trump as AZ Gov...

We could make a long argument about why Kari Lake is unfit to be Arizona’s next governor. We could make a short one too – her policies are terrible. Or we can just show you this headline from The Atlantic: In Kari Lake, Trumpism has found its leading lady

Arizona rejected Trump and Trumpism two years ago. But Kari Lake’s whole campaign is just a trial run to see if Trumpism can survive without the person it’s named after.

Arizonans didn’t want Trump to be president. We can’t let his knock-off clone become governor either.

I so want to go find a drop box, and punch them in the face, I would get arrested, but I would be happy..Nancy Pelosi

Jim Freeman: How the Filthy Rich Profit From Racism

Happened upon this FSTV Pirate TV last night..jaw dropping..there is so much truth in this video..someone is saying "it is all about racism" out loud..from our educational system, to our prison system..


Jim Freeman is a Civil Rights lawyer and organizer who served under President Obama as a Commissioner on the White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for African Americans. He is the director of the Social Movement Support Lab at the University of Denver. As he explains in this talk, after decades of hard struggle alongside communities of color throughout the US to change racist policies, it began to dawn on him that those communities were no better off because “for every injustice they thought they were solving, an equally nasty one would pop up to replace it.”

Through incisive studies of the education, criminal justice, and immigration systems, Freeman explains how policies that keep people of color less educated, policed at impossible rates, and in constant fear of deportation, have in large part been enacted and supported by America’s ultra-wealthy.

On this episode of Pirate TV, Jim Freeman is here to talk about his new book, "RICH THANKS TO RACISM: How the Ultra-Wealthy Profit from Racial Injustice" an in depth study of the financial data that tracks billions of dollars in donations from the Koch family, the Walton family, Bill Gates, and other billionaires that are at the root of the mass incarceration system, the vast immigrant detention system, and the dismantling of public schools within communities of color. It uncovers how Fortune 500 companies such as General Electric, Bank of America, and ExxonMobil use their economic and political clout to actively contribute to the perpetuation of racial inequities.
