Rank #2: Surviving Trump's America #9: The Fourteenth Amendment pt 2

Podcast cover
Read more

Due process. Equal protection. Strict scrutiny. All of these concepts spring from the 14th Amendment, which is the basis for some of the most important civil rights achievements in the last century. But the amendment has also been a major battleground for America’s varied, competing political ideologies, and unsurprisingly, the good guys haven’t always won. In this installment of Surviving Trump’s America, we delve into the paradoxical history of the 14th Amendment. Part 2 of this episode picks up right where we left off - post Jim Crow through modern day.

This week Natalie and Kelly examine white privilege and how white people can do better in the face of overt (and not overt) White Supremacy and racism.
