April 9, 2014

On today’s M&M Wednesday, Foreign Policy Stories Editor Seyward Darby explains how the Twa people of Rwanda were the hidden victims of the Rwandan genocide, the historical roots of the genocide, the politics of post genocide Rwanda, how erasing ethnic distinction can harm the cause of human rights and how the west is responding to new human rights problems in Rwanda.

Scott Keyes Senior Reporter for Think Progress explains why  Shawnee, OK is the worst place in America to be homeless, how Native American groups make up a significant portion of the homeless population, the local financial interests interests targeting the homeless, how the city of Shawnee passed laws to criminalize homelessness in the name of “beautification” and how vigilante groups in Shawnee have destroyed homeless peoples property.

On The Fun Half: the IMF is undermining Ukraine through austerity, the World Bank punishes countries for protecting workers, Bill O’Reilly calls out “race hustlers”, why you should listen to Nas’s Illlmatic now, Sean Hannity wants to water board terror suspects but still won’t get water boarded himself, we remember the wrestler Ultimate Warrior,   the Koch brothers and David Vitter benefit from Obamacare and your IMs.

And keep the conversation going on our morning thread
