Sojourner Truth: August 17, 2017 – Charlottesville, Racist Policies & the History of White Riots
< 1 day ago
Today, we continue our in-depth coverage of the aftermath of the modern-day white riot in Charlottesville that left 32-year-old Heather Hayer dead and at least 19 others wounded. Heyers memorial was yesterday, and her mother called on all of us to follow her example and stand up for justice.
Meanwhile on Capitol hill, GOP elected officials are not directly attacking Trump for his outrageous reaction to Charlottesville, instead making mild comments against racism and Nazis. None are showing any willingness to break with Trump.
What lessons can we learn from Charlottesville? Is this only a discussion on the immorality of racism? What about legislation specifically to attack communities of color? And what has been the history of white riots in the U.S.? Our guests are veteran civil and human rights campaigner and attorney Barbara Arnwine; author and journalist Greg Palast; photo journalist; photojournalist Zachary Roberts, who was on the ground in Charlottesville; and Dr. Sheila Smith-McKoy, author of When Whites Riot: Writing Race and Violence in American and South African Culture.
