In today's episode, we discuss an instance in Michigan where officers pulled guns on and subsequently handcuffed a Black realtor, homebuyer, and his son after mistaking them for trespassers. We also discuss an Ohio court that sentenced two women (one White and one Black) to very different punishments one day apart from each other for essentially the same crime. We reflect again on how policing and the criminal justice system favors White criminals over all others especially Black people. For our Ebony Excellence, we celebrate Beyonce and Jay Z becoming the new faces of Tiffany & Co. and our B.A.B.A. segment informs about August being Black Business Month.
