Jon Stewart Debunks GOP’s City Crime Narrative | Rev. Dr. William J. Barber II

6/18/2024
Trump called the RNC host city of Milwaukee a horrible place and is now trying to pass the insult off as a concern about crime.

And Protestant minister, social activist, and Yale Divinity School professor Rev. Dr. William J. Barber II discusses his latest book, “White Poverty: How Exposing Myths About Race and Class Can Reconstruct American Democracy.” Barber talks about the staggering statistics of poverty in America which have long been misrepresented, the need for politicians to pay attention to this huge portion of the population and mobilizing poor and low wage people of every race to vote, and leading the June 29th Mass Poor People’s & Low-Wage Workers’ Assembly and Moral March on Washington D.C.
