Podcast: A wake-up call from Dallas

radioDallas needs to be a wake-up call for all of us. AFP editor Chris Graham talks in today’s podcast about how the answer isn’t going to come from Washington, D.C.

“We need to stop looking to Washington, D.C., for answers, because those folks aren’t interested in answers, but rather self-preservation,” Graham said. “I’m reminded of how the civil rights movement of the ’50s and ’60s achieved the dissolution of Jim Crow. That movement was a political movement, but its leaders weren’t elected officials. It took people coming together to get Washington to act.

“Fifty years later, we need to come together again as we did then to spur action.”
