COPS & Race

I recently discovered a podcast called “The Glenn Show”. The shows that I have watched are AWESOME. They cover a range of topics and the show hosts or main characters Professor Glen Loury and Professor John McWhorter are intelligent, thoughtful , and current. I don’t agree with everything they they say or topic they discuss but they make the listerner feel like you can have a discussion with them. WE NEED MORE DISCUSSIONS. This show on COPS and Race is my favorite so far. It was recorded 5-28-2020. Below is a list of some of the topics they discuss during the podcast. There were far more topics discussed and in much more detail. I think you will find that this will be the first time you will hear how these topis are discussed.

This episode of the Glenn Show can be viewed HERE

Prioritizing Equity video series: Police Brutality & COVID-19 | American Medical Association

I am shocked by the position that the AMA has taken on policing. I hope they cite some of the sources they get their information from because listening to the discussion in the video it is obviously agenda driven and not evidence based.

The latest Prioritizing Equity video series examines police brutality and racism, discussing how physicians and others can address root causes of inequity by naming racism.
