Why is #EducationSoWhite in Washington state?

Thu, 22 Jun 2017 21:20:27 +0000

What value do we attribute to education? It is common to hear how it changes lives, promotes imagination and creativity and invites opportunity. It is often a social endeavor, and thus encourages the wide sharing of ideas and knowledge. The founders of Washington state clearly valued the concept of education. Article IX of our Constitution states: “It is the paramount duty of the state to make ample provision for the education of all children residing within its borders, without distinction or preference on account of race, color, caste, or sex.”

Thu, 22 Jun 2017 21:05:44 +0000

Bill Radke speaks with Simon Tam of Portland band The Slants and Robert Chang, professor of law at the Seattle University School of Law, about the Supreme Court decision that allowed Tam's Asian-American band to trademark their name, which some argued was too offensive for the designation. Tam explains how he feels this decision allows people to empower themselves against slurs and thinks this is a huge win for social justice. Professor Chang disagrees with the SCOTUS decision, claiming that this could open the doors to discriminatory trademarks that slip past civil rights laws. He also argues that trademarking names may in fact harm future social justice movements.
