- We Have Won The Battle, But We’re Still At War
Tamika and Mysonne discuss the impact of the past week on the African American community. In a whirlwind week, Derek Chauvin was found guilty on all charges in the death of George Floyd, a young girl Ma’Khia Bryant was shot by police, funerals were held for both DMX and Daunte Wright and Republican lawmakers are introducing new legislation against protestors. Our hosts speak about the importance of helping people who are dealing with addiction and mental health issues while they’re alive and not talking about it after they’re gone. Tezlyn Figaro joins Tamika and Mysonne about how polarizing it was to go from celebrating the guilty verdict of Derek Chauvin to mourning the death of Ma’Khia Bryant just a few hours apart. They also discuss new legislation being drafted by Republican lawmakers who are attempting to advance a number of new anti-protest measures at the state level — including multiple bills that specifically make it easier for drivers to run down protesters. When is it all going to end? Mysonne wants to know why police brutality against African Americans isn’t considered to be biased behavior. Watch Tamika and Mysonne discuss all this and more on this week’s episode of Street Politicians, the place where the streets and politics meet!
