Talking about the “Things That Matter Most” on April 30, 2015
4:00 – Kresta Comments: What are the Protests Trying to Accomplish?
The protests in Baltimore have spread to major cities throughout America, including New York, Seattle and Denver. In the past, racial protests had a clearly defined and achievable goal: the right to vote, to sit anywhere on a bus, to eat at any restaurant and so on. Today’s protests are over the right to…not be killed by white cops? What should the protesters be doing to have an actual positive effect on the lives of the people they fight for?

Will we see this in future protests? Al has comments.
