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.

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.

OVER-POLICING IN THE BLACK COMMUNITY: How Black American Women are Affected by Police Brutality — The IWI: International Women’s Initiative

The murder of George Floyd, a Black American man suffocated under the knee
of a police officer in Minneapolis, Minnesota, sparked national as well as
international protests against police brutality and the unequal treatment
Black lives. Soon after, Breonna Taylor, a Black 26-year-old essential
worker, was murdered by police in her own home in the middle of the night.
