Best of 2014!:
Princeton’s Eddie Glaude Jr. explains the larger meaning of the crisis in Ferguson and the murder of Michael Brown, “conflict porn” and why we don’t get to the bottom of race in America, why white supremacy is the disease that undermines America, white supremacy can be practiced by anyone, the politics of respectability, President Obama’s reluctance to engage on Ferguson is a expression of our racism, why shouldn’t African Americans expect more from President Obama? the Police culture of abuse and harassment of African Americans, how Ferguson challenges the African American establishment, the intersection between race and poverty and why treating populations as disposable blocks America’s democracy.
Also! Cliff Schecter joins the Majority Report crew to mock Paul Ryan and his completely made him brown paper lunch bag story, Sam Seder talks to Isabel Gillies son as Hugo from Bob's Burgers, the now infamous Libertarian "have you ever ran a Denny's?" debate, and two classic Alex Jones bits: Super Male Vitality and Nazi Net Neutrality.
