The Tea Party and the Media - Glen Ford

Left Forum 2011

Glen Ford and I were panelists at this year's annual Left Forum in New York City. Here is Glen on a panel discussing the Tea Party and the media.

The entire discussion was interesting. Other panelists wrung their hands about the tea partiers and how we progressives should engage them. I for one have no interest whatever in engaging them or worrying about what they fear. No mystery here, they fear black people. Period.

The left need to concentrate on advocating for their own positions and not worry about unrepentant racists and reactionaries.
