The Ongoing Protests For Racial Justice & The Rise Of Far-Right Armed Militias
On this edition of Your Call, we’re going to Milwaukee, Portland, and Sacramento to discuss the ongoing protests for racial justice in the wake of the recent shooting of Jacob Blake, a 29-year-old Black father who was shot in the back seven times by police in Kenosha, Wisconsin. His family says he is paralyzed from the waist down.
We'll discuss the original demands for racial justice and an end to police violence, the right-wing armed militia groups that have attempted to hijack recent protests, Donald Trump's visit to Kenosha, and the upcoming election.
