Trump And The Global Economy (“Trump And The GE”) had its fifth installment last month. The quarterly speaker series has sparked a bevy of town halls and copycat events pursuant to Trump. They same imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and be me, we are flattered that rappers, athletes and the mainstream media want to swagger jack up. However, there simply is no other event like this.
Last month’s event featured Missouri State Representative Maria Chappelle-Nadal and Professor Lance Brofman. We covered everything from Tommy Smith to John Carlos to taking the knee to Charlottesville to mass incarceration. During a discussion on whether the mainstream media attention on confederate statues was genuine or simply a false flag, things got heated. Ms. Chappelle-Nadal got her dander up and explained the risks black politicians take when they stand up for black lives.
