Is it possible to have a racially color-blind society and is this desirable?


This Saturday August 30th 8-9 PM on It’s A Question Of Balance with Ruth Copland we consider ‘Is it possible to have a racially color-blind society and is this desirable?’ Proponents of "color-blind" practices believe that treating people equally leads to a more equal society and that race privilege no longer exercises the power it did in the past, obviating policies such as affirmative action. As Chief Justice John Roberts put it "The way to stop discrimination on the basis of race, is to stop discriminating on the basis of race." Opponents of "color-blind" practices believe that racism and white privilege remain defining features of American society and that "color-blindness" simply allows whites to ignore the disadvantages of the non-white population. How do we move towards racial equality without ignoring the realities of disadvantages created through prejudice? Is it possible to reach a place where we recognize we are all different but equal? What do you think? Join us on Saturday 8-9 PM! For more info on the show and to hear past shows visit www.itsaquestionofbalance.com

Good Morning Monterey Bay, August 25, 2014

On today's Program:

UCSC PhD candidate Martin Rizzo spoke to Rosemary about legacy of Jose Vicente deLaveaga:

Jose Vicente deLaveaga, a native of Mexico, received business training in Germany before permanently settling with his parents in San Francisco in 1868. He was 24. He was a shrewd businessman, he spoke five languages and he acquired properties in San Francisco, Contra Costa, San Benito and Santa Cruz counties.

Santa Cruz was a favorite discovery, reminding him of his coastal hometown of Rosario, 40 miles south of Mazatlan. When he and his parents first visited Santa Cruz in the 1870s, they boarded at Andrew Trust's house on Lincoln Street, bringing their servants and doing their own cooking. They eventually made their local headquarters in the Joseph Pierrugues residence at Pacific and Maple streets.


Rosie spoke with the head of the Santa Cruz Water Department Rosemary Menard about Santa Cruz water policies during the drought, UCSC expansion, and water school:
