4.18.2022 #RolandMartinUnfiltered: LA's Cancer Alley, Manson's Takeover Remains, Nashville's Reverse Racism, The White Dress Project
The Environmental Protection Agency has launched several civil rights investigations over air pollution in Louisiana's "Cancer Alley." That's between New Orleans and Baton Rouge, where a quarter of the nation's petrochemical production occurs. We'll talk to the president of the Concerned Citizens of St. John Parish, that says there permits granted in the highly polluted industrial corridor are discriminatory.
The fight continues for Mason, Tennessee, as a judge denies to reinstate control of the majority-black town's finances to its leadership. For now, the state comptroller will continue to hold the purse strings.
Also, in Tennessee, the state Senate gives final approval to a Black history bill requiring state public schools to integrate Black history and culture into the social studies curriculum for grades five through eight. All it needs is the governor's signature.
A white Nashville councilwoman is kinda being called a racist for describing white people as white.
Florida's State Board of Education rejects over 40-percent of textbook submissions saying they promote CRT.
Former Superbowl Champion Marshawn Lynch is taking up hockey - as a minority owner.
And in our Fit, Live Win segment, we're talking about fibroids. We'll meet one woman who turned her own medical story into an awareness mission called "The White Dress Project."
