TheUSAPodcast Episode 137 with Mike Riley
In this episode Mike digs into how the whole world is beginning to reject the ideals, principles and customs of systemic racism in the wake of the George Floyd killing. Many States are even going as far as removing their relics that pay homage to the old Confederacy which many see as a monument to America's racist past. But not all are on board with this concept. Donald Trump is not interested in renaming forts or tearing down statues in the name of removing racism. But why?
Also, with many calling for serious police reforms the question of what to do next is constantly coming up. Calls to defund the police and even disband police departments have been made but what does this really mean. Mike breaks it down.
Plus, with the elections coming up,many fear that voter suppression tactics may come into play. On Tuesday, several states voted in their primary elections, but some states, such as Georgia, went through a tough episode featuring long lines and mistreatment of absentee ballots. What does this all mean and can we expect this in November?
