Mzchief was kind enough to send me video of the web show Futurestates, which I’ve posted an episode of at my pro-immigration blog Voice of the Migrant.

It was impressive in many ways. Not only in the element of illustrating endemic institutional racism that doesn’t allow a woman of color to really become an equal no matter what she does (compare the border agent’s interaction with Tia with reports that then Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld refused to show up at meetings with Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice) but also in showing a prophetic state for the United States.
