Hour 1: Cenk and John hosting. Bill O’Reilly fought with Kirsten Powers over a debate about whether or not racism is an epidemic in the country. Videos of the two fighting over the state of racism. O’Reilly told Powers to stop snorting over the other guest before she asked if he has any Black friends. Bill Kristol also got argued down over his tweets claiming that the Left isn’t going to stop until all Confederate history is eliminated. Video of John Heilemann pointing out Kristol’s strawman argument.
Hour 2: Ana joins Cenk for SCS. Clothing retailer Zara has been identified as a company that systematically takes part in discrimination and racism towards employees and customers of color. The results are particular to the NYC stores. A group of teenagers have developed a condom that detects STIs before having intercourse. A small town in Brazil feverishly celebrates the Confederacy and the Confederate flag. Many modern day citizens are descendants of fleeing Confederates after they lost the Civil War, and after many years of expanding, some residents are Black and mixed but still celebrate the flag. They have no political affiliation to the roots of the flag in America.
