February 4, 2016

Susan Eaton Director of the Sillerman Center at the Heller School at Brandeis University and author of Integration Nation Immigrants, Refugees, and America at Its Best explains the distinction between integration and assimilation. How American culture is enriched by immigration. Why integration is better for everyone. Exclusion policies don’t work and why we need to know what inclusion really means. What Fort Wayne has got right in its treatment of immigrants and refugees. Repairing the mess of anti immigration measures. Busing in Boston and how to transform values. The inspiring story of Mississippi’s Civil Rights movement fighting for immigrant rights and class consciousness and overcoming racial division. (13:00)

On The Fun Half: the CEO of Goldman Sachs says Bernie Sanders has the potential to be “dangerous”.  Hillary Clinton explains why she spoke at Goldman Sachs and misses the bigger point. Jeb Bush is so sad. This Donald Trump supporter is the best thing ever. President Obama visits the Islamic Society of Baltimore. Marco Rubio is disgusting in his comments on Islam and your calls IMs.
