Episode 11–What’s the Matter with Alabama? Examining Red States

By | February 29, 2016

In our most personal episode to date, Blue in Alabama and Alabama Liberal explore the fundamental question: Why do red states go for policies that aren’t helping them? And we actually answer it. Join us as we explore The Southern Strategy, how Alabama’s political shifts have been a reaction to race, and the direct correlation between low education, income inequality, low-wage jobs, and crime. Plus, we discuss some hopeful things on the horizon, and how Alabama might save itself if it only it could get higher voter turnout.

    So true Nancy. Why would any woman vote for a Republican when they don’t regard women as being whole.

    Republicans haven’t figured out what planned parenthood means, either.
    Great article.

    I like the way you show all opinions and both sides.
