In this week's episode, we discuss the optics surrounding the trial of Derek Chauvin...the officer who knelt on the neck of George Floyd. We examine how rather than defending the officer, the defense has opted to villainize Floyd and how unfair that is. We also discuss the interaction of an officer in Arkansas who pulled over a Black man driving a U-Haul truck and was arrested so the officers could search the back. Finally, Patrick C. Brown from the NAACP Political Action Committee discusses some of the voter suppression bills and how we can fight against them as individuals.
