This week on the Freedom Train Podcast Series, Joe and Pat let a stream of thoughts flow as they cover three topics that are trending in the news. but not at the top of their lists to cover. The first topic is the derrick Chauvin trial of his murder of George Floyd. If Chauvin is convicted, what impact will it have on the justice system as a whole? What impact will it have on the Floyd family? If he is convicted of murder, will it be a blow to systematic racism? These are questions the gentlemen answer. The second topic is about the COVID-19 vaccine and the possible 4th wave of the virus. There is a lot of controversy surrounding the vaccine due to mistrust in the medical industry. There are also a number of people who are not following the protocols in place to help prevent the spread of the virus. If the virus doesn't slow down, should you get vaccinated? The last topic covered is about the recent rise in Asian hate crimes over the last three years. Are the narratives surrounding the hate crime targeting black people true? Also, are black people obligated to be an ally to all other people of color. Tune in to hear what Joe and Pat have to say.
