12.16.2021 #RolandMartinUnfiltered: S. Africa & Covid, 2021 Celebration Bowl, Potter Trial, DeSantis' Stop Woke Act, TX $5M Settlement
It's Thursday, December 16, 2021, and we are back in Atlanta for the 2021 Cricket Celebration Bowl. Saturday's game is a MEAC-SWAC showdown between Jackson State University and South Carolina State University. We'll have more from the pre-game festivities. We are at the College Hall of Fame. I'll be interviewing all kinds of folks here, including Jackson State's president Thomas K. Hudson and Athletic Director, Ashley Robinson.
South African countries are experiencing an increase in Covid cases, many from the new variant, which is causing more than 90-percent of the new cases in the country. We'll talk to Botswana's Ambassador to the United States about what's being done to curb the surge.
Daunte Wright's father testified in the manslaughter trial of the white Minnesota cop who killed his son.
Plus, the man who was exonerated for killing Malcolm X is suing the state of New York for $20 million. A Texas county will shell out 5 million for the wrongful death of a black man.
And that fool of a Governor down there in Florida is trying to pass a bill that will allow parents and employees to sue over Critical Race Theory.
