SORT BY Relevancy
Under Obama, rural poverty has slipped off the national agenda as presidential candidates, pundits, and the press focus on the needs of big cities – the very places making the countryside poor.
The fate of upstate New York is a small scene in a larger story enveloping rural areas across the United States. As the balance of population shifts to cities, urban elites are increasingly favoring laws and regulations that benefit urban voters over rural ones. The result is the "Detroit-ification" of sparsely populated areas so that the countryside increasingly resembles the inner city. This trend fuels the intense populism and angry politics that has shattered the post-WWII consensus and divided the nation.

On tonight's show, I will continue my series of The State of Black America, by asking, what are your solutions to saving our lives? This show will not only be about police killings, but also crimes and killings done BY US, TO US, as well as the excessive incarceration rate of Black men. There's an apparent and urgent need for something to change. I've had many of conversations where people have thrown out a multitude of things that we can do. Some say we need to dress differently, some say we need to mindful of how we talk to the cops, some say that we should drive different vehicles so we don't fit stereotypes, some say that we need stop supporting media and entertainment that gloriifes drugs, killings and sex, some say that we need to be more involved in the political process and vote more, some say that bad parenting is the reason for it all etc. What do you say?
All of those points may be valid, so how do we begin a comprehensive plan of action, so that we can begin to implement said solutions? All ideas are in play here, It's imperative that we have a real intense dialogue about forming some solutions, and manifesting them into action.
