Leslie Gregory is President and founder of Right2Health and she joins us today to talk about how racism is a causative factor in poor health outcomes for African-Americans.. It is so important that the CDC should recognize it as such and declare it. But it refuses. How do we change the CDC opinion? Leslie feels it is time to stop asking if racism is a factor and to declare that it is so.

Populist Dialogues - 18-04 - The Middle Class Disappears while the Poor Get Poorer and the Rich get Richer and Richer

This episode is currently not viewable online.

We talk with Juan Carlos Ordonez, Communications Director with Oregon Center for Public Policy, about the growing income and wealth gaps between the top 1 and 1/10th percent and the rest of us. As a result of policy decisions in the halls of Congress and our state legislatures, the gap has been growing for the past 40 years. The decline of unions and disinvestment are also major factors. The recent Trump tax ''reform'' makes it even worse.
