The Racial Hamster Wheel

Maria and Julio welcome two ITT All-Stars, Dr. Eddie Glaude Jr., the department chair of African American Studies at Princeton University, and Terrell Jermaine Starr, senior reporter at The Root. They talk about the latest with impeachment and the 2020 Democratic primary, and how Nikki Haley's comments on the Confederate flag being "hijacked by Dylann Roof" are only a manifestation of genteel racism. They also follow up from Friday's Sound Off conversation about the ProPublica video showing Carlos Gregorio Hernandez Vasquez's last moments of life, since we now know that his family traumatically saw the video for the first time as a result of the news reports and social media posts.    ITT Staff Picks:
