We will continue with Don Debar the WBAIX New York’s senior journalist with an update on Libya from an Anti-Imperialist perspective. Freedom Now will close out with our central theme. Asian in America’s and Africans in America relations within the anti-war and anti racist and National liberation movements. For too long Pacifica has not provided a voice to the Asian community. The Manufactured notion of the Asian ideal minority type negates critical issues that face people of color communities. White supremacy does not give a race pass to our Yellow brethren. Our guest Dr.Diane Fujino is the Chairperson of the Asian American Studies department at UC Santa Barbara but more importantly a well know activist within the Asian movement.
