This Week on Between The Lines

Posted June 24, 2015 for week ending July 3, 2015

"If you look at the conservative arguments that take place in this country, it's always against immigrants, people of color, black folks and women. It is very xenophobic in its perspective and its outlook. And so in a sense it becomes the old racist paradigms of the past that are just dressed up contemporarily and put in a tuxedo."

– Rev. Graylan Hagler, senior pastor, Plymouth Congregational United Church of Christ, Washington, D.C., on the racism that continues to pervade U.S. politics

Charleston Massacre Provokes Long Overdue National Debate Confronting Racist Ideology

MP3 Interview with Graylan Hagler, senior pastor, Plymouth Congregational United Church of Christ, Washington, D.C., conducted by Scott Harris

charleston

The cold-blooded murder of eight black parishioners and their pastor by an avowed white supremacist at Charleston, South Carolina's historic Emanuel AME Church on June 17 once again exposed the deep racial divisions in the U.S. While the massacre was greeted by calls for unity and healing, a debate quickly ensued about the Confederate flag flying in a place of honor at the State Capitol in Columbia. Before committing the murders, the accused killer, 21-year-old Dylann Roof, had posted photos of himself waving a Confederate flag on a website that also featured his racist manifesto titled the "Last Rhodesian."  Story continues

Current Legal Battle to Keep Texas Abortion Clinics Open Could Effect Change Across the U.S.

MP3 Interview with Gretchen Borchelt, vice president for health and reproductive rights at the National Women's Law Center, conducted by Melinda Tuhus

Conservative legislatures and governors in many states across the U.S. have succeeded at whittling away at abortion rights over the past several years. This has occurred as the anti-choice movement has migrated from street protests – and from sometimes violent assaults on abortion clinics and staff – to pushing for suffocating state regulations.  Story continues

Progressive PAC Threatens "Free Trade Democrats" with Primary Challenges

MP3 Interview with Jim Dean, chairman of the progressive group Democracy for America, conducted by Scott Harris

tpp

After a June 12 vote derailing crucial fast track trade legislation in the House of Representatives, President Obama backed by a coalition of Republicans and a handful of Democrats, recovered momentum by winning a second House vote – and appear poised to win approval in the U.S. Senate. The passage of fast track, or Trade Promotion Authority, is a necessary pre-requisite for later ratification of the proposed Trans-Pacific Partnership free trade agreement, or TPP that would set trade rules between the U.S. and 11 other nations.  Story continues
