AFL-CIO's Richard Trumka on Obama and racism
if you watch a lot of the election coverage on television, you'll get a lot of talking points and quite a bit of cheerleading for either candidate but you won't really get much insight as to what working folk are thinking or what's actually happening on the campaign trail. here's a clip that surprised me -- richard trumka, the current secretary-treasurer of the AFL-CIO making an empassioned speech about racism and unions and obama. it's a total breath of fresh air, to see someone that's this on fire about something that matters so much -- and who's actually right, for a change.
