Tonight on DiLT we will reflect on the 20th Anniversary of the infamous Rodney King beating by LAPD officers, and the LA Riots. We will talk about what happened, the lessons we learned, and whether or not it was worth our time and emotions. We will also discuss the case of CeCe McDonald - the black transgendered woman who's on trial for manslaughter after killing a man who attacked her; and Marissa Alexander - the FL woman who faces 20 years in jail for firing a "warning shot" to protect herself from her attacker. Is there a reason why the Black community hasn't rallied around these cases? Is our decision to ignore social injustice based on our our personal bias??? Damnit Let's Talk tonight!
