The permanent economic crisis...
... in the global black community. Lots of linky goodness from voxunion:
While much of the U.S. is now forced to hear of an economic crisis few are aware or concerned with the permanent economic crisis for African America and the African world. This Black American “permanent recession” is often hard to identify because of repeated references to a mythology of “buying power“ meant to convey an economic strength which simply does not exist. A focus on colonialism or the colonial model does help to identify this as part of a wider permanent crisis facing us all. No one escapes being connected to the rest and all are subject to the interwoven relationships between wealth, income and power.
Yep. Don't think of Katrina as a "natural" disaster.
Think of it as a successful experiment.
