Today we discussed the oft-practiced "ready-fire-aim" approach used by police. We examine what it means to be a public servant/peace officer, and how when officers fall short of this, people sometimes pay with their lives. The example we use in today's episode is from Idaho Springs, CO where a deaf man Brady Mistic was beaten, arrested, and imprisoned by officers for not complying with orders (again, he is deaf). We also ask the question "How young should a child be before they are taught about race?' We revisit Critical Race Theory and its merits. Our Way Black History Fact is about some of the ways that prisoners were used for profit throughout the history of the United States. Our Ebony Excellence segment is dedicated to NASCAR champion Bubba Wallace.
