This interview will centered around Paul's keynote at WPC 14 in Seattle WA on Thursday, April 11, 2013:

"Consumerism as Racial Injustice: The MACRO-Aggressions that Make Me, and Maybe You, a Hypocrite"

When Paul started to take stock of his own behaviors and how they might contribute, even if indirectly, to racial injustice, the only conclusion he could come to was this: he is a hypocrite, especially when it comes to consumerist behaviors. In this presentation Paul will talk about consumerism as a series of MACRO-aggressions that feed racial and economic injustice in which nearly all of us, in one way or another, are complicit.
