With the demise of examiner.com, a huge number of my articles formerly on the web were lost. Some of these were published in my books Dissenting Views and Dissenting Views II, but some are gone forever. One of these articles consisted of an interview I did with the activist and organizer Eugene Puryear, who is currently the Vice-Presidential candidate for the Socialist Party. In light of events over the last year or two, I believe this interview - which is focused around the problems of mass incarceration, particularly people of color - is more relevant than ever. Mr. Puryear is a fascinating and brilliant individual. Also, in the interests of full disclosure, I have a soft spot in my heart for D.C. activists.
I am making it part of my blog so it can be once again accessed freely on the Internet.
