Last night’s compelling PBS documentary Slavery by Another Name is a painful reminder of the depths to which this nation invested in white supremacy. The story of how Blacks in post-Civil War America were cast into corporate slavery and exploited by the “rule of law” to enrich economic elites and provide poor whites the comfort of relative advantage by race should widen the public’s understanding of racial disparities that are evident today.

October 7-11, the Haiti Support Project (HSP) led its third Delegation to Haiti since the fateful earthquake of January 12th. The atmosphere was in marked contrast to HSP´s Third Annual Pilgrimage in October of 2009 when there were signs of a much brighter future for Haiti and its people.
