We sat down with Dr. Harry Edwards, a sociologist, author, scholar and longtime advocate for African American athletes, to put the Trayvon Martin murder into context and to discuss the state of racism for black men in America.
Then we shifted the topic to what it’s like to be a young gay man in America running for Congress in western Michigan. Trevor Thomas joined us inside “The War Room” for a candid discussion on his run for Congress, his views on gay rights and how to continue the revival of the Michigan economy.
Ian Millhiser of The Center for American Progress offered his perspective and assessed the arguments on both sides of the Supreme Court’s review of President Barack Obama’s healthcare law. Then we looked into the future of political agendas with California Republican Cassandra Pye and up and coming California Democrat Fiona Ma.
