You want to hear something inspiring?

I direct you over to Edge of the West (more excellent political commentary by a bunch of smart historians, none of whom I know personally), where you can view a YouTube speech by Rich Trumka. Trumka is a former coal miner and former President of the UMW who now serves as Secretary Treasurer of the AFL-CIO. He’s speaking about the issue of racism among working-class white people and it’s a speech that…well, I’ve been waiting a long time to hear this. (Speaking of stuff that makes one weepy.)

Why don’t I just imbed the YouTube, you say? Because I want you to actually go over to Edge of the West and read their stuff. It’s really good.
