Rashad Robinson & Color of Change Cancels Bill O’Reilly
Politically Re-Active with W. Kamau Bell and Hari Kondabolu #39 May 25, 2017
Rashad Robinson has done battle with Bill O’Reilly and won – twice. He’s taken on the shady, corporate-driven conservative operation ALEC and gotten companies like Coca Cola and Walmart to back down from supporting stand-your-ground laws. And now, after successfully campaigning to remove O’Reilly from Fox News – along with great work from UltraViolet, the Women’s March, NOW-New York, CREDO, Sleeping Giants, and MoveOn – he’s taking on the prison-profiteering bail bond industry – and it’s not even June. As executive director of Color of Change, the nation’s largest online racial justice organization, Rashad is at the forefront of the strategic campaigns that transform lives and movements. In this episode of Politically Re-Active, he shares the backstories behind these campaigns, the role of entertainment in the resistance, and more. Trust us – you won’t want to miss it!
