Sweatshop afterthoughts

In writing the last blog about Sweatshop Union, I was reminded of a video I saw years ago. Kyprios, one of the MCs of the Sweatshop crew used to be a slam poet. The first time I saw his video, it hit close to home, since I came from a small town, which didn't always have the most open mind. It was the type of thing that I wish could be shown to every single kid growing up in the middle of nowhere. Maybe, just maybe, it'd shock then hell out of some kids into realizing that racism just isn't cool.

This video is heavy. Be sure to watch the whole thing before you pass judgement.
