What a story! God bless him! I had thought we as a nation had moved beyond this kind of stuff but in Trump World (the EGOIDIOT) we are going to go through this all over again! Tears on my smartphone! I am Puerto Rican, part African-American, and gay and this white nationalist fervor is going to throw the nation back to the 50s & 60s. I was born in Miami in 1954 and I remember. AND I remember exactly where I was and the circumstances surrounding when we learned of JFK's assassination - even as a 4th grader! - Rev. Vincent O. Gonzalez-Holland North Fort Myers FL

Awesome podcast. I learned so much from the episode. I would love to hear more reporting on the impact of bussing, redlining, prison industrial complex etc. There was an article done in 2003 by the Ny times. https://www.nytimes.com/2003/01/12/magazine/prison-is-a-member-of-their-family.html has there been any follow up on this family?

"Busing didn't fail, we failed"? Really? Busing was deeply unpopular and inconvenient for everybody. So, the people spoke and government got rid of it. This should not be a story of how "racist" we are, but of how American democracy actually worked. The Daily trying to racialize everything disgusts me.

lzk222 "Mr. Madison, what you've just said...is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point, in your rambling, incoherent response, were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it."

the regular cooking ad that this channel has is disgusting and sad. I'm hearing reports about the abuse of police force against black Americans and how busing change our country but the ads involve abuse of the powerful over the voiceless. the contrast is shocking! could you just get an ad that does not include pork-chops?

Queentalk Let's straighten it out!!!

J. Daubert It’s sad how we say we own parts of earth but when we die it’s left to other people of all nations. When are we going to realize human race is the only importance you don’t own nothing not even your soul. Don’t let one clown influence the whole inhabited earth.

Before I say anything, let me say that, I am aware that not every officer means to kill. They are humans too. Sometimes things just happen. However, Racially motivated or not, there should be actual consequences when police make a bad call. Especially if it ends in the taking of a life. Police officers, although still human, get training to handle situations better than the average civilian. That being said they should be held responsible when they go against that training.
