This episode was embarrassing to endure. Larry Elder perpetuated the myth of that racism is a fantasy in this country and challenged you to provide examples. Now I know that Larry is good at being the intellectual heavy but it seems to me in that moment that your mind rather blanked and you pulled police violence as your only card. I can't in good conscience let that smug propagandist get away with murder. How about the war on drugs? Does that ring a bell David? Arguably the war on drugs is big factor here too. That's institutional racism at it's finest, because by and large, it's not white people who are getting stopped and frisked. It's tough for black families to stay together when you keep on arresting the shit out of them for non violent offenses. The Felonies they come out of prison with don't really do much to help them stay in the work force either. I suppose it doesn't help to have the CIA directly peddling high power super pure crack to your neighborhoods, and the FBI targeting your leadership with programs like Cointelpro. I suppose it's too late now but I would have given anyhthing to see the sorts of intellectual contortions Larry would have to provide in order to stick to his guns on the lack of institutional racism after those sorts of answers. Next time make that talking head work for a living.
