On May 25th, 2020, George Floyd was murdered by Minneapolis police officers. Since, nationwide protests have been held across all 50 states. But the nation is not unified. Many have made attempts to diminish or delegitimize the efforts to seek justice for George Floyd, or stall the movement for equality focusing instead on looting, rioting, or other tragic events that distract from the moment. This episode examines some of the factors that contribute to those dissenting and skeptical voices, and I talk about what I feel are important steps we must take toward progress.
