Trump Closes in on Winning GOP Nomination with Racist Rhetoric

MP3 Interview with Mark Potok, senior fellow with the Southern Poverty Law Center, conducted by Scott Harris

trump

Since he launched his candidacy, billionaire real estate mogul Donald Trump, the leading candidate to win the Republican party nomination for president, consistently made incendiary statements appealing to racist and xenophobic beliefs of a significant number of GOP voters. In the early days of the campaign, Trump made national headlines when he charged that Mexican immigrants were rapists and drug dealers, and called for a temporary ban on all Muslims entering the U.S. In a series of recent controversial remarks in media interviews, Trump declined to repudiate the endorsement of his campaign by the Ku Klux Klan and their former longtime white supremacist leader David Duke.  Story continues

Proxy Fighters and Religious Conflict Present Major Obstacles to Ending Syria’s Civil War

MP3 Interview with Jennifer G. Loewenstein, senior lecturer in Middle Eastern Studies at Penn State University, conducted by Scott Harris

syria

A fragile ceasefire has mostly held across wartorn Syria after U.S. and Russian negotiators implemented a cessation of hostilities agreement on Feb. 27. The UN and its partners have been taking advantage of the lull in fighting by stepping up deliveries of food, water and medicine, and plan to reach more than 150,000 people while the ceasefire remains in effect. Syria’s civil war, now in its fifth year, has claimed over 300,000 lives, forced 4 million war refugees to flee the country and internally displaced another 8 million.  Story continues

Freedom Rider Honored for Role in the Civil Rights Struggle

MP3 Interview with Lula White, a Freedom Rider and recipient of the Quinnipiac University School of Law Thurgood Marshall award, conducted by Melinda Tuhus

civilrights

In 1961, hundreds of civil rights activists, black and white, rode interstate buses into the Deep South to challenge state prohibitions on freedom of interstate travel. They were known as Freedom Riders, and at each stop, the black riders tried to use facilities designated for whites only, while their white comrades entered the "colored only" facilities. Many faced threats of violence, with some suffering brutal beatings. One bus was set on fire near Anniston, Alabama; luckily the riders inside escaped without serious injury.  Story continues
