ATR 125 – oppression olympics, capitalism, Morehouse

MLK’s daughter recently declared that her father didn’t take a bullet for same-sex unions. Why is it that marginalized people fight each other over scraps, instead of uniting to work toward justice for all? Capitalism as we know it is simply not sustainable. We discuss the work of economist Noreena Hertz, and explore the link between capitalism and social justice. Is the new dress code at the all-male Morehouse College a symptom of how out of touch the school is with the realities and lives of black men today? Carmen Van Kerckhove, Latoya Peterson, and Tami Winfrey Harris discuss.

  1. The MP3s for this episode and 124 seem to be missing from the RSS feed, so my podcast software isn’t able to download them automatically.

    I hope this is fixable. I’m looking forward to listening to these.
