Three prominent Americans debate the merits of unchecked immigration, national security, and civil rights. While it sounds like a contemporary, made-for-TV event, this confrontation takes place in 1799, with three of America’s Founding Fathers as participants: Alexander Hamilton, Thomas Jefferson, and Aaron Burr. Legendary radio dramatist Norman Corwin created this imagined discussion from the participants’ actual writings—proving that when it comes to politics, some things never change. Starring Gregory Harrison

What Now for Poor, Black and Brown Women-After Roe Scuttle? No abortion, open gun toting, public money for religious schools, no suits against corps. All in one week from SCOTUS --AND they're still in the bullpen just getting warmed up. PS As I've said often-You Didn't Think They Wouldn't Take it Back the first chance they got. The "it" being civil rights, civil liberties, LGBT, environmental, immigration, labor, and economic rights and gains fought and died for in the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s - Earl Ofari Hutchinson
As activists across the U.S. are mobilizing to defend reproductive rights, we speak to the Dutch physician Dr. Rebecca Gomperts, who has dedicated her life to circumventing anti-abortion laws, including providing abortions on ships in international waters and sending abortions pills around the world. She also discusses navigating censorship on social media platforms, telemedicine, the future of contraception and more. “This is not the moment anymore to stay within the law,” says Dr. Gomperts, referring to the end of Roe v. Wade. “This is the moment to make sure that women have access to safe abortions despite the law, because this is such an unjust law that is creating so much social inequality and that will affect, really, the most poor women in the country.”
We go to San Antonio, where 53 migrants seeking refuge in the U.S. died earlier this week after being confined to a sweltering tractor-trailer. Human rights advocates blamed the tragedy on restrictive immigration policies like the Migrant Protection Protocols, also known as MPP or the “Remain in Mexico” program. In a 5-4 decision, the Supreme Court ruled on Thursday that President Biden has the power to end the Trump-era policy, which forced tens of thousands of asylum seekers to stay on the Mexican side of the border in unsafe conditions while their cases were resolved in the U.S. “Every single migration-related death is preventable by policy that actually focuses on welcome and care,” says Claudia Muñoz, co-executive director of Grassroots Leadership.

On today's BradCast: It was the grand finale at the end of a U.S. Supreme Court term like no other. Now that its packed with rightwing extremists, the unleashed activists on the GOP's illegitimate 6 to 3 U.S. Supreme Court pretended on Thursday that the text of the written law doesn't say what it actually [...]

FEATURING PARKER MOLLOY – The January 6th far right mob that attacked the U.S. Capitol building will go down in history as the violent and inevitable culmination of Donald Trump’s Presidency. But how did his favorite news media outlets cover the attack? And, more importantly what did Fox News and th
Immigrants are rarely portrayed in Hollywood film or television projects, except as caricatures and stereotypes. The human cost of our harsh immigration policies is not a common film trope in spite of the harm that countless people face.
Sidelined: Bias in SoCal schools and youth sports?
Southern Californians share experiences of discrimination in educational settings
Education is considered the great equalizer but what happens when students face inequality while trying to learn?
Cal State LA’s Race, Class & Gender in American Journalism class created a podcast to explore stories of folks who grappled with racism, sexism, classism, nepotism and other forms of bias or discrimination in educational settings, including schools and athletic programs.
The 10 episodes produced cover a range of obstacles and biases. Examples include:
In light of the curriculum introduced to implement critical race theory into curricula at all educational levels and college admission scandals, there has been more attention to concerns of racism, nepotism, and classism in academic settings. But educators and students say more must be done. To that end, the project also looks forward, to examining models that have worked in other states and strategies for eliminating personal and institutional biases that can affect students, student-athletes and others.
This project was produced by students in Cal State LA’s JOUR 3500 Race, Class & Gender in American Journalism class in collaboration with Golden Eagle Radio.
