For our weekly chat with Lisa Durden, we get into the changing US with pressing issues such as a pending new independence holiday, the latest protests and how the Supreme Court gave Donald Trump and discrimination a smack down.
This week on our check in with social commentator and pop culture critic, Lisa Durden, we cover current issues with these questions:
Question 1: On Juneteenth, and the passage of national holiday. While people applaud the gesture, they are asking for more substantive legislation like healthcare, police protections and reparations.
Question 2: Gives us some updates on Breonna Taylor?
Question 3: Donald Trump already said that he will be filing more papers to challenge the Supreme Court Ruling. Is this him buying time? What is his motive for this?
Question 4: The Supreme Court’s decision for workplace protections for the LGBTQ community was also passed this week. Is this a symbolic gesture, or will this have meat on the bones?
Question 5: Side bar, do you want to talk about the beef between the white LGBTQ and Black LGBTQ community over the All Lives Matter march this weekend. The Black LGBTQ was like, y’all racists as shit
Question 6: Where is Sleepy Joe?
Question 7: How do we activate our voting power?
