‘ON THE GROUND’ SHOW FOR JULY 8, 2022: The Farce of You Lie… Little to Celebrate as U.S. Supreme Court Tramples Human Rights and Nation is Besieged by Violence… Gerald Horne and Greg Carr on the Legacy of U.S. Settler Colonialism

With recent extreme rulings by the U.S. Supreme Court, striking down abortion rights, gun safety laws, and the ability of the federal government to curb fossil fuel emissions, even politicians are describing what is happening in the United States as a judicial coup. Many Americans felt they had little to celebrate for Independence Day in 2022. We spend the hour with historian Gerald Horne and African American Studies Professor Greg Carr as they discuss the violent history and impact today of U.S. settler colonialism, slavery, genocide, and attacks on the left.
