White Supremacy Unchecked

Julio and guest co-host Harsha Nahata, producer for In The Thick, are joined by Anoa Changa, a southern-based movement journalist for NewsOne, and Karen Attiah, columnist for The Washington Post. They hear from Maria on her reporting out of North Dakota and discuss multiracial organizing ahead of the midterms. They also get into the harmful narratives around immigration, and how the climate crisis is having a deadly impact in Kentucky.

ITT Staff Picks:

  • For Scalawag Magazine, Anoa Changa interviewed the young organizers behind Mississippi Votes about their work in mobilizing the community.

  • “The hardest hit areas of eastern Kentucky received between 8 and 10 1/2 inches of rain over 48 hours, and the degradation of the land wrought by coal mining might have altered the landscape enough to help push rivers and creeks to crest at record levels,” via Associated Press in Politico.

  • “We live in a culture that sees rest as weakness and working as strength. And our country’s public health will continue to suffer for it,” writes Karen Attiah for The Washington Post.
