My recent posts have been highlighting that this site is not about pointing a finger at someone else, as much as looking within yourself for your own contribution to the goodness in the world, the badness in the world and the ravages of indifference. This week’s podcast talks about privilege–we all have it to some degree. We also address the reaction to black progress (i.e. the Tea Party-from fringe group to center stage). We finish up the Call to action segment with a song by the lovely inferno that is Nina Simone. Simone did not hold back in her lyrics. The saddest thing is that some of her lyrics written back in 1964 still ring true such as “School children sitting in jail,” “That’s just the trouble, too slow.” referring to the long wait for racial equality.
