In the first half of today's episode, discuss environmental racism and cite examples from recent stories in the United States. We spend a good amount of time discussing the recent example that has left Jackson, Mississippi without water indefinitely.
In the second part of the show, we cover a story of a 12-year old boy who was a victim of police violence in New Orleans. We then bring attention to how the aggressive tactics of police are often only pointed at Black people and the implications of these actions.
