On Contact: Analysis Of George Floyd Protests

On the show today, Chris Hedges discusses the George Floyd protests erupting in over 140 American cities with Glen Ford, executive editor of Black Agenda Report.

“And the black misleadership class seems to be more upset and angry about this than the white misleadership class. Sometimes it’s funny. Activists have coined the term ‘coopaganda,’ to describe these funny gestures by cops and other authority figures to be kneeling. A gesture of submission to the demands but of course it’s a diversion, a distraction designed to soften people attitude toward the rulers. And it shouldn’t fool anyone.”
