1+1 Episode 15 Yuri interviews Margaret Kimberley on the mass uprisings in response to George Floyd

1+1 is back, sorry folks! we are rejoined and honored to have back on Margaret Kimberley Senior columnist and editor at Black Agenda Report, part of the Black Alliance Peace, indie journalist, anti-imperialist activist, racial/social justice activist and author of the brilliant history book "Prejudential: Black America And the Presidents". we talk about why there is such huge nationwide protests and uprisings in response to the latest state terror and racial arsonist attack that befell George Floyd and why its resonating solidarity protests in Europe, Canada, Great Britain, Australia and New Zealand, Is she worried as I'am that the response is just Trump derangment syndrome and will the Rival oligarchic/imperialist/racist party The Democrats and their colonial viceroys's the Black Misleadership Class be able to coopt the popular anger as they often do? I tell Margaret that while looking at two pop/EDM artists I love Charli XCX & Dua Lipa encouraged fans on youtube to donate to Black Lives Matter I left a comment saying not to do that but to donate/join to Black Alliance for Peace and subscribe and donate to Black Agenda Report. Margaret makes the case why people should join BAP https://blackallianceforpeace.com/ , and why they should subscribe and donate to and why they should be weary of Black Lives Matter and other similar Black racial justice groups. We then had time to discuss Joe Biden's suggestion cops should shoot people in the legs when dealing with suspects or criminals and why while on the surface I don't understand where Biden is coming from but why according to Margaret and others this is yet another example of why Biden is unfit to be president (just look as his actual track record). please join 1+1's facebook page to keep in touch and interact, if you'd like to get in touch with me you can do it through there or yuriyourismouter but more importantly subscribe, share widely the videos at all your social media outlets and please subscribe to www.blackagendareport.com and donate generously, and check out Black Agenda Radio and subscribe there at Margaret's soundcloud https://soundcloud.com/user-92939733 and I completely forgot but folks should check out and attend and join the Black is Back Coalition http://blackisbackcoalition.org/
