Podcast: America After George Floyd with Deval Patrick


Transcript

Listen:
The images of George Floyd's death, captured on video and seen around the world, ignited global rage and calls for an end to the systemic racism that has plagued policing in the U.S. since its founding. On the latest episode of GZERO World, Ian Bremmer talks about possible solutions and paths to real change with Deval Patrick, former governor of Massachusetts.


In an in-depth interview, Gov. Patrick details his reaction to yet another incident of police brutality claiming the life of a black man, his own personal experiences with racism in America, and why he feels "Defund the Police" isn't a practical fix for this widespread problem.

Gov. Patrick also discusses VP Joe Biden's presidential campaign and previous gaffes and policy blunders around race and criminal justice. He describes Biden as "evolving" and "empathetic," and encourages the Democratic party to rally in this crucial election.
