The LMC continues its Undocumented and LGBTQ series by speaking with freelance journalist and news production fellow for Democracy Now, Maria Ines Taracena about the marginalized group within the marginalized group. The caravan within the caravan.
For too long, the immigration debate has been centered exclusively on the Latino community in the US. At the same time, millions of Southeast Asians have been left out of the conversation. So the LMC speaks with Kham Moua on the struggle for Southeast Asian immigrant rights and the importance of Asian/Latino unity against racism & xenophobia. Kham Moua is the Immigration Policy Advocate for the Southeast Asia Resource Action Center (SEARAC).
On this episode, the LMC spends the hour with Joao Costa Vargas about how Brazil’s institutionalized anti-black hatred is more crucial in understanding the rise of right-wing politician Jair Bolsonaro to the presidency than his blatant fascist views. Joao Costa Vargas is the author of “The Denial of Antiblackness: Multiracial Redemption & Black Suffering.”
