New York Times Quotes Remi Kanazi on Charleston Shooting; Randall Robinson Talks Human Rights and Charleston with PBS-TV/Tavis Smiley

A tweet posted by Haymarket Books author Remi Kanazi on June 18 about the attack in Charleston, South Carolina, was quoted in a New York Times article on June 19 asking why the word "terrorism" is readily used to describe violence by extremist Muslims but not in the case of the white supremacist who killed nine African Americans during a church service last Wednesday. In the article, Kanazi and other civil rights activists demonstrate that the massacre "not only fit the dictionary definition of terrorism but reflected a history of attempts by the Ku Klux Klan and other white supremacist groups to terrorize African Americans." Kanazi has been known to advocate for many more minorities, but most of his efforts are focused on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. He is the author of the forthcomingBefore the Next Bomb Drops: Rising Up from Brooklyn to Palestine and an avid supporter of the "BDS" movement calling for an international boycott of Israel.
 
Human rights activist Randall Robinson joined PBS-TV/Tavis Smiley on June 19 to discuss his new video series, World on Trial, which investigates international policies and whether they preserve or violate basic human rights. He also spoke with KPFK-FM (Pacifica)/Uprising Radio with Sonali out of Los Angeles on June 18 about the recent massacre in Charleston and how we should respond. Robinson's latest book is Makeda, a historical fiction novel about a Southern, African American matriarch and her less impressive grandson, Gray.
