C-Span Economic Discussion on MLK's Birthday
Amaad Rivera of United for a Fair Economy was a guest on C-SPAN this morning during a really interesting discussion about the impact of race upon economic status in America.
Rivera is one of the most eloquent and insightful speakers I've seen talking about raising awareness of inherent inequities and imbalances in the US economic system that penalize and financially marginalize hard-working tax-paying Americans of all races.
The non-profit UFE is one of the groups trying to stem the growing wealth divide in this nation and seeks to restore economic stability and opportunity for for all Americans.
He's the Racial Wealth Divide Initiative Leader of UFE and a co-author of the January, 2008 "Foreclosed" Report available in a PDF version
C-Span continues to offer up serious and substantive analysis of relevant issues and the highest quality of television journalism. An appropriate format on the birthday of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
