With all the recent fuss over the man – instead of what should be praise or study – we thought it appropriate to re-post our interview with the late, great Derrick Bell.  All he did was tell the truth…  “If the nation’s policies towards blacks were revised to require weekly, random round-ups of several hundred blacks who were then taken to a secluded place and shot, that policy would be more dramatic, but hardly different in result, than the policies now in effect, which most of us feel powerless to change.”  Derrick Bell joined the show this week.***  A founder of Critical Race Theory, leading legal expert and law professor Bell discussed the law and its role in the “permanence of racism.” All this plus many more surprises in this week’s “redux.”
