Black Lives Matter: Helping African American Community?
Nov 24, 2020 Episode 6
Heal our Division

Has the Black Lives Matter movement been helping the African American community? It’s November 2020 and Americans are divided. While the Black Lives Matter movement began in 2013, it returned to international headlines in May 2020 following the death of George Floyd. With an estimated 15 to 26 million people participating in demonstrations this year, scholars estimate that BLM may be the largest civil movement in US history. How does this impact the African American community moving forward and what are the benefits? My guests today are Lauren, a university student in the state of Texas and member of the Arlington Urban news platform and Colton, a conservative media member by career of 5+ years since graduating from university. We touch on whether Democrats are sincere in their support for BLM, prison reform during the Trump administration, where donation money goes, and more. Despite their different political stances, today’s guests quickly identify their shared opinions and collaborate to address solutions for America’s future. So with no further ado, I invite you to join me as we heal the division on the Black Lives Matter movement.
