Embargo

Melissa Harris-Perry hosts a debate on the Cuba Embargo post Beyonce/Jay-Z trip

Check out this lively debate on Saturday’s MSNBC re why we treat Cuba and Cubans differently, after over 50 years of economic blockade, and if it should continue. (I don’t endorse any of the wild assertions, easy to make if you don’t go to Cuba or let most of your fellow citizens check it out either …).

And Melissa Harris-Perry is one of the few journalist/hosts with substantial media access who has not forgotten about the detainees at our Guantanamo prison camp, after 10+ years with no charges, dozens of whom have been on hunger strike since February, and a number were shot (with rubber bullets says the US) this week-end for apparently resisting their hopeless plight. We should not forget them either.
