From hollow promises of 40 acres and a mule to today’s economic systems based in racial inequity, the odds for monetary success has long been stacked against the Black community. In today’s Real Talk Real Change special brought to you with our friends at Chevrolet, we examine the roots of today’s racial wealth gap and the possible solutions, speaking to experts like Master P, DL Hughley, Michelle Singletary, Hill Harper and more. Don’t miss another edition of this important special!
It’s time for Real Talk and Real Change. Why do Black people distrust the medical system? Why do white doctors believe racist myths? Should there be all-Black hospitals? The racial inequities in America’s healthcare system have been on display more than ever in the past year, and they cry out for bold questions and creative solutions. In today’s special, we hear from policymakers, medical professionals and patients about what needs to change to fix this shame in our society.
