Yuri Kochiyama, Japanese-American activist, passed away on Sunday, and it provides an interesting moment of synchronicity in our discussions about reparations. She was with Malcolm X when he was assassinated and was one of the main movers for the reparations for those who were involved in the Japanese-American internment. Her memoir Passing it On, is highly recommended.
Will try to do a real open thread tomorrow AM, unless someone beats me to it.
