ITT Sound Off: Love and Resistance

Maria and Julio talk about former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin’s guilty plea for violating George Floyd’s civil rights, as well as the ongoing trial of former Brooklyn Center police officer Kim Potter, who shot and killed Daunte Wright last April. They also discuss the latest with the January 6th investigation, as well as a new House bill to combat Islamophobia.

ITT Staff Picks:  - The Minneapolis Star Tribune reports on the ground with the latest on the Kim Potter trial, including Potter’s expected testimony. - “Meadows is hiding what happened in the White House on January 6. It’s no wonder he does not want to testify,” writes David Corn for Mother Jones. - Marian Jones writes about bell hooks and her impact on Black feminist cultural studies and criticism for Teen Vogue.
