        Every day the CTA helps thousands of people get to their destinations, yet it also helps give us a unique view of the various economic classes of the city. In the recent years there has been a growing wealth divide that for the most part has been ignored. Racism, Sexism, Homophobia are all topics touched on daily in classrooms, work places, and day to day discussions. Classism however remains on the fringes, for it is too big of a topic to cover in one simple discussion. This video was made in hopes to spark this conversation. I offer no answers to the growing problem, I simply present the issue. The statistics of median household income were taken from this website and are based on the 2010 census: http://moacir.com/donkeyhottie/2013/04/17/cta-and-median-incomes/#footnote_0_3456 A full transcript of Barack Obama's speech can be found: http://www.politico.com/story/2013/12/obama-income-inequality-100662.html

          • Benches Magically Appear in San Francisco, After All These Years

            Sitting or lying on the sidewalk is now illegal in San Francisco between the hours of 7am and 7pm. Oops, but there's nowhere else to sit. The city has the smallest population of public benches per capita of anywhere I've ever seen. So what, go inside? Oops, but for a lot of folks, there's nowhere to go inside. San Francisco is undergoing intense gentrification; less and less affordable housing. Less and less jobs to work to try and afford the housing. If you don't have a job or can't work a regular one for some reason like not being a citizen, you can wait on the side of the road for someone to drive by who needs a worker. Oops, but don't sit down to take a break before your long work day. You might get picked up by the wrong kind of drive-by. Thankfully, there are now a handful more benches in San Francisco. They magically grew up out of the concrete last night. They look organic to me. I think it's fine. Go ahead, have a seat. They don't bite. But the cops do.

                      A protest folk song and love song from the summer of 1975 about escaping temporarily from the Death Culture's plastic world of 9-to-5 wage slavery, finding romantic love and "some paradise in the middle of this hell" and laughing at "all the fools" who exploit US working-class people and rule over all of us.
