I'm an African American woman who felt uncomfortable with your rant about how bad it is for Obama to take $400,000 to speak. It's about the fact that many, many whites feel outrage when black people have the same advantages as white people.

Remember affirmative action? I went to Harvard, where the unqualified "legacy" students -- that is, students whose forebears were alums or heavy donors -- got in and got away with academic cheating and more.

I wish you had explained your objection before launching the rant. You might not see how what you said has anything to do with race, but your rant touches a nerve for this black woman. I wish you would check everything through a race lens for awhile -- Critical Race Theory.

Thom's Blog Is On the Move

Hello All

Today, we are closing Thom's blog in this space and moving to a new home.

Please follow us across to hartmannreport.com - this will be the only place going forward to read Thom's blog posts and articles.

From Screwed:
"If we are going to live in a Democracy, we need to have a healthy middle class. Thom Hartmann shows us how the ‘cons’ have wronged this country, and tells us what needs to be done to reclaim what it is to be American."
Eric Utne, Founder, Utne magazine
From Screwed:
"Once again, Thom Hartmann hits the bull’s eye with a much needed exposé of the so-called ‘free market.’ Anyone concerned about the future of our nation needs to read Screwed now."
Michael Toms, Founding President, New Dimensions World Broadcasting Network and author of A Time For Choices: Deep Dialogues for Deep Democracy
From Cracking the Code:
"No one communicates more thoughtfully or effectively on the radio airwaves than Thom Hartmann. He gets inside the arguments and helps people to think them through—to understand how to respond when they’re talking about public issues with coworkers, neighbors, and friends. This book explores some of the key perspectives behind his approach, teaching us not just how to find the facts, but to talk about what they mean in a way that people will hear."
Paul Loeb, author of Soul of a Citizen
