7.5.2023 #RolandMartinUnfiltered: L.A. Sheriff's deputy body slams black woman; July 4th violence spike; Diversity scholarships at risk; India Arie v Janelle Monae, Meg Thee Stallion
A Los Angeles Sheriff's deputy body slams a black woman. Even the sheriff's department calls the video 'disturbing.' We have both body cam videos and videos shot by a bystander. We'll examine what led up to the violent encounter.
We'll also look at the recent violence that gripped the country over the holiday weekend. We'll break down where the violence and examine if California Governor's proposed 28th amendment to increase the age to buy guns could help curb the rising trend of gun violence.
The Supreme Court's decision to overturn affirmative action ignites concerns about the future of diversity scholarships. We will speak to a Higher Education Scholar about the potential implications and explore ways to ensure our children can still access valuable opportunities.
India Arie calls out Janelle Monae and Megan Thee Stallion for their Essence Festival performances; saying they are "degrading" the culture. And I must say, I agree. I'll explain why.
