2. A must listen
I'm passing up Air America Radio today to listen to this.

Tavis is great. This forum is addressing more than just Brown vs Board of Education 50 yrs later.

The conversation is covering all aspects of society: The "Prison Industrial Complex", School Funding, Racism, Voting Issues and quite honestly "Class Divisions" even though I think they are skirting around the issue to some extent. Bottom line--we do have an unequal society. Racism (In my opinion) is the tool used by the wealthy, power holding elite to keep all the rest of us from uniting to achieve a better society for us all.

(Look at Northern Ireland--there religion has been used as the 'rallying point' to keep the poor fighting one another rather than the power structure)

Lani Guinere comes closest to addressing the real underlying issue.
