Murder, Racism, and Civil Unrest
Jun 08, 2020 Season 1 Episode 15

In light of the recent murder of George Floyd and the civil unrest that has followed, Matthew felt it was prudent to address and discuss race relations in the United States through the eyes of a close African-American friend named Marvin.  In this discussion, Marvin describes his life growing up in Baltimore and how his life was different from Matthew's upbringing.  They go on to discuss the social disparities in this country related solely to the color of one's skin.  It was an eye-opening discussion for Matthew and hopefully for anyone who wishes to educate themselves on the current state of race relations in this country.
