Google Fireside Chat With Tavis Smiley & Dr.Cornel West
The Black Googler Network hosted Dr. Cornel West & Tavis Smiley for a discussion on poverty in the United States. The two discuss their 2011 Poverty Tour and other issues affecting those who are often overlooked in this country. I have so much respect for the duo because even with the topic having little presence in mainstream media, both continue to have the passion the spread awareness on poverty. Some of the statistics presented will have you scratching your head and wondering why 50% of our population lives in poverty, yet we put billions of dollars into war.
