Our own Seth Wessler appeared on WBAI’s Talk Back! with Hugh Hamilton last week. Seth and Hugh discussed racial disparities in the economy, as detailed in ARC’s Race and Recession report from earlier this year.

Topics covered by the interview and call-in Q&A included the devestation of communities of color by a bank-created foreclosure crisis; affirmative action for whites in the GI Bill; and the success to date of racial impact statements in preventing disparities caused by new legislation.

Seth’s segment starts at about the 1:06:00 mark. Listen in the player below, or download the mp3.
