Jon is joined by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and best-selling author Isabel Wilkerson to discuss race, and America’s caste system, and why there isn’t a singular solution to racism.

I'm sure Liberty County Sheriff's office of Savannah Georgia searches all the white school buses, too.

'Traumatizing': Delaware State lacrosse coach, player speak out about bus search in Georgia

Delaware State University freshman lacrosse player Brianne Johanson and assistant coach Anna Bissell were settled in for a long bus ride back to campus after a tournament in Jacksonville, Florida.

They believe what happened next to their team of predominantly Black student-athletes was a result of racial profiling.

The HBCU program's charter bus was stopped on I-95 by Liberty County sheriff's deputies south of Savannah, Georgia, on April 20, for traveling improperly in the left lane. After bus driver Tim Jones, who is Black, was asked to step off the bus, deputies boarded and, as recorded on video by a player, warned players to confess if they were carrying drugs and used a K-9 to sniff around the bus.

"Everyone was freaking out, because, we didn't see (Jones) do anything wrong. ... It took 10 minutes after, and two officers came on the bus and told us that they would be searching our bags," said Johanson, a Community School of Naples (Florida) graduate. "Everyone was very confused. Shocked. We had no idea why they were searching our bags. They gave us this whole spiel on how it's normal in Georgia, it's how they're checking for trafficking of any kind.

Seems legit. Those unarmed folks were clearly in possession of excessive melanin.

I wonder why Google is preventing me from seeing where else that image appears?

When I try to search for this image, to attach names to the faces, I get this:

I had a different set of non-hits. :lol: When I added the word "murdered" to the image search, it worked.
It appeared to only have one hit, but when I clicked on the picture in the search results, a bunch more came up underneath it, if that makes sense.
