San Diego, June 10th - Jeremy Scahill speaks on Blackwater (tags)
Scahill will have a new presentation on Blackwater with a critique of the U.S. media, saying that the role of Blackwater as an unaccountable combat force not only abroad but in the U.S. as well is just one of many stories that aren’t being covered properly in the mainstream press.
Only Whites Claim Katrina’s Poor Response is NOT Racist (tags)
I have not seen one person of color saying that the response to Katrina in New Orleans had “nothing to do with race.” The mere fact that the ONLY people saying that are white says it all to me. Last night, I saw the Mayor of Houston whose name is ironically “Mr. White” pooh-poohing the race card...
