After a White teenager kills two unarmed Black Lives Matter protesters in Wisconsin, his violence is not mentioned by speakers, including Donald Trump, at the Republican National Convention. Instead, the speakers slander the racial justice movement. Gerald Horne joins us. And Americans in DC and around the country rally to support our public postal service, not just to protect mail-in ballots but also to support beleaguered American workers. Plus Jon Jeter on media, headlines on Kenosha and more.
Bonus content with Jon Jeter on our Patreon channel.
