Afro State of Mind by Lurie Daniel Favors provides a critical analysis of issues and current events impacting the Black community. Lurie is the author of Afro State of Mind: Memories of a Nappy Headed Black Girl, a story that uses one girl's experience with hair and colorism to explore race, history and identity.

This week Lurie discusses congressional budget chair Paul Ryan's controversial comments about the link between poverty and an "inner city culture" of "men who don't want to work." What are the true causes of poverty in America? How are the congressman's comments related to institutional racism and how does this impact the broader Black community? All this and more on today's episode of Afro State of Mind Radio.
