Ali Abunimah is the guest on this week's edition of the podcast known as The Chauncey DeVega Show.
He is an internationally known human rights activist and author whose work focuses on the struggle for the Palestinian peoples' full rights and freedom. Ali Abunimah is also the co-founder of the essential website Electronic Intifada.
In this great conversation, Ali and Chauncey talk about many issues. They include the global colorline and human rights, the United States' militarized police, the relationship between Israel and America's police and military, the Israel lobby and American politics, the limited space in the corporate media for truth-telling, and how to maintain hope and positivity while doing social change work.
Chauncey also talks about his recent essay on racial battle fatigue, colorblind white liberal racism, and McKinney, Texas's police thuggery against young black and brown children at a local pool.
