Unauthorized Disclosure

Dr. Jemima Pierre, a professor at UCLA of African Diaspora Studies & an editor for Black Agenda Report, joins the show to talk about the Dominican Republic's plans to expel Haitian migrants and Dominican citizens of Haitian descent from the country. She addresses the deep-seated racism driving the government's push to get rid of black Haitians. She describes the history of Haiti and the Dominican Republic, as well as the United States' role since it once occupied the island where Haiti and the Dominican Republic are located. 

During the discussion part of the show, Rania Khalek and Kevin Gosztola talk about Dylann Roof's manifesto and share thoughts on the political and media reaction to the church massacre in Charleston. They talk about a Louisville FOP president and his vitriolic open letter directed toward Black Lives Matter activists. And the show wraps with some quick thoughts about a court ordering US officials to intercept a Guatemalan mother and her child, who were deported, and return them to the United States.
