Naomi Klein on Democracy Now (video)!

Naomi appeared today on Democracy Now! where she discussed at length her September Harper's article,"Minority Death Match: Jews, Blacks, and the Post-Racial Presidency," and her recent Guardian article, "Obama's Big Silence: The Race Question.

We speak with journalist Naomi Klein about her latest article for Harper’s Magazine, “Minority Death Match: Jews, Blacks and the ‘Post-Racial’ Presidency.” The piece examines the World Conference Against Racism that was held in Geneva this past April, a follow-up to the first racism conference in Durban, South Africa in 2001. There was a major boycott with the Obama administration refusing to attend, claiming the conference would unfairly target Israel. Critics say the controversy over Israel could have been an excuse to avoid dealing with the conference’s key issues, including addressing the legacy of slavery.
