Chris Hayes of MSNBC’s “All In” interviews Ta-Nehisi Coates after his recent article in The Atlantic, “The First White President”. This is the article referenced on ESPN anchor Jemele Hill’s FaceBook page and which informed her controversial Tweet.
Had hoped to include an embedded video of the second half of Chris Hayes’ Ta-Nehisi Coates interview, but it’s not working out. Apparently MSNBC hasn’t figured out how to stream content over a secure connection (https://) and the our site will not play non-secure content in a secure web page. The best I can do at this moment is to give you the link to the MSNBC web site where part two is available.
We at San Diego Free Press love watching all kinds of video. Those short visual stories entertain, inform, and agitate in a way completely different from the written word.
Since our platform is about expressing ideas and ideals instead of cash flow, clicks, or fundraising, we have the freedom to include a wide range of topics and formats that might not work elsewhere. We don’t need or want paid content, promotional materials, or story lines designed to please donors.
So the idea here is to present videos one or more of the editors feel speaks to them. Sometimes it will be news. Sometimes it will be history. And a lot of the time it will be culture. You can not and should not separate these things: it is diversity and intersectionality that makes our movement strong.
