Seattle's Socialist councilwoman on why capitalism offers nothing for young people | Making Sen$e | PBS NewsHour
“PBS: So there’s no stigma associated with Communism or Socialism now?
“Sawant: The only reason you’re talking to me is because an out-and-out Socialist got elected in a major city in the United States with nearly 95,000 votes. There’s no stigma; it’s time for working people to lose their shackles and march ahead.”
===Seattle councilwoman Kshama Sawant is a leader in Seattle’s movement to raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour. But even that, she says, won’t be enough to overcome an economic system that’s not working for America.
I like people who are learning to like themselves. Support people on the path to self confidence.
I love how Tumblr keeps me posted on black success, because you won’t hear it on the regular news. I’m extremely proud of all these stories i’ve been reading about black high school students getting into not one, but multiple ivy league schools.
