So many of the recent asylum seekers along our southern border are from the Central American nations of El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. Is this just coincidence? Hardly. For anyone that’s used the term “Banana Republic” without being clear how that term originated (actually, even if you do know how the history of that term), here’s a brief look back at how U.S. involvement In Central America led to our current border crisis.
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.
Feel free to suggest videos at email@example.com
Could somebody please sent this video to DC, ABC, NBS, CBS, FOX, AND CNN, FOR STARTERS?!
The ignorance and arrogance of the US is mind-boggling. Most people who come from Central and South America are refugees and asylum seekers, not “immigrants.” Our policies are atrocious all over the world. Time to rein in the reign of terror the US has perpetrated on millions of people, including its own with the drug war on Americans, which incarcerates millions for obscene profit. The immigrant detention centers are also built with obscene profit in mind. Its lust for money trumps all common sense. Both foreign and domestic US policies make a LOT of dollars, but no sense.
