What You Can Do ... To End Health Inequity, Racism and Police Brutality

I hope you all are doing well and staying safe. Maybe, if you find it within yourself to do so, you are protesting police brutality, or amplifying the voices of those who are. I hope you are doing something, because a revolution in policing needs to happen, and our nation needs to be on the right side of it.

My guest today is going to talk to us today about these protests, as well as health inequities in rural South Carolina, among other topics. He's the Democratic front-runner for the Senate seat in South Carolina, aiming to unseat Lindsay Graham and according to many recent polls, he may just win his seat come November.

This is a great interview and I think it will speak to many of us who are looking for ways to get involved or help the Black community in America.

This issue is particularly important to me as a civil rights lawyer, as someone who has worked in law enforcement, as a person of color ... and most importantly as an ally to my Black brothers and sisters.

I have worked to reform, educate and oversee law enforcement at many levels in this country for over a decade now and these protests are a long time coming, because obviously the work I and many others have done, is not enough.

If you haven't already, I invite you to go to UnfairNation.com and subscribe to our newsletter where I share what I think a possible solution to this crisis may be as well as how you can think about ways to help. And if you're a new listener, I hope you will subscribe to our podcast and rate us on your favorite podcast app. Thanks, as always, for listening.
