ITT Sound Off: Whiteness Running Amok

Julio and guest co-host Terrell Jermaine Starr, senior fellow at the Atlantic Council and host of the Black Diplomats Podcast, discuss the Michigan high school shooting, Chris Cuomo’s suspension from CNN, and Representative Lauren Boebert’s racist comments against Representative Ilhan Omar. And, they dive into the Supreme Court case about a Mississippi abortion law.



ITT Staff Picks:

  • This piece for The City breaks down an investigation into Andrew Cuomo’s inner circle, including his brother Chris Cuomo, and their efforts discredit the women who’ve accused the former governor of sexual harassment. 
  • “Kavanaugh can lie to the media and Barrett can lie to women and Roberts can lie to himself, but the lived experience of women, girls, and pregnant people will never fit the self-serving narratives of conservative Supreme Court justices,” writes Elie Mystal on the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization case for The Nation
  • For Mother Jones, Nathalie Baptiste writes about the context and consequences of Rep. Lauren Boebert’s bigoted comments about Rep. Ilhan Omar.
