Two Blacks Featured in Anti Nuke Video

Although AAEA is pronuclear and we disagree with the message of the video, we also recognize that they are including African American voices in their message. This is quite unusual for the antinuclear and environmental movements because they are some of the most segregated and narrow-minded sectors in American society. Thus, we have to conclude that Bonnie Raitt probably had a lot to do with their participation and not the green antinukers. Bonnie is really cool and we really like her. Interesting note: our president met Bonnie Rait in 1982 after one of her antinuclear charity concerts.

Ben Harper and Keb' Mo' join with Bonnie Raitt, Jackson Browne and Graham Nash to make a half decent tune with a bad message. Now we like these cool cats and kitten, just not their message. Ben, Keb, give us a call. Let's talk about this. We'll explain the great benefits of nuclear power as a smog and global warming mitigator. And we have players that can cut a funkier tune too. Another interesting note: Ben Harper is married to Laura Dern. See video below:
