4th of July takes on new meaning during pandemic and racial justice protests

Episode 144,   Jul 04, 2020, 06:30 AM

July 4, 2020 marks the 244th birthday of America. But this year, the celebration is quite different. As Coronavirus cases spike nationwide, millions of Americans are being told to avoid the BBQs, the fireworks, and the parties, and instead celebrate their nation’s freedom while locked at home.

At the same time, as protests continue in the fight for racial justice following the killing of George Floyd, debates now rage over whether America really is the “land of the free and the home of the brave?'

Elex Michaelson breaks down these issues and more as he’s joined on The Issue Is by Dr. Drew Pinsky, attorney Lisa Bloom, and radio host John Kobylt.
