2/23 Jeet Heer: How to Make It in Conservative America (If You Aren’t White)

February 23, 2015

Canadian journalist Jeet explains the colonial roots of the Right’s perception of non-white writers. Why the sad case of Dinesh D’souza illustrates the non-white conservative pundit. Racism and upward mobility. Also the links between South Asians and African Americans in the struggle for human rights.

Also Walmart finally raises its wages and we explain why.

On The Fun  Half: the full Rudy Giuliani is a horrible person breakdown. The legacy of Malcolm X. The right’s Oscar freakout over American Sniper and your calls and IMs.
