Michigan law threatens Afrakan community

Courtesy April 25's episode of the Rachel Maddow Show...Michigan's emergency financial manager law grants its "overseer" the unilateral power to deconstruct the Afrakan (African American) community of Benton Harbor. This small community off the shores of Lake Michigan is the first town in Michigan to have its elected government effectively nullified. See this clip below for more details:

The Soundtrack of Aesthetics 6250 A.U.

There's something to be said when the visual arts are complimented by acoustic artistry. During the design process, we must have listened to the Sin and the Fear by Mangataot hourly for days, and every CD by Last Soul Descendents is a must for those into ambient moods and introspection. Aesthetics 6250 A.U. Spring 2011 edition was a labor of love, the intensity of which can be felt through the soundtrack that accompanied its creation. We hope you enjoy.
