FROM THIS EPISODE

The election of Barack Obama raised high hopes that America’s legacy of racism had finally been overcome. But, after a week of deadly violence, the nation—and the President—face a very different reality.

In the Philippines, local police and vigilantes have killed at least 100 suspected drug dealers without any legal proceedings. They’re making good on campaign promises by their newly elected President, Rodrigo Duterte, who called for controlling crime by extra-judicial killing.

Bernie Endorses Hillary 6 MIN, 29 SEC

In Portsmouth, New Hampshire today, Bernie Sanders did not give up on the major goal of this year’s Democratic primary campaign, stating that the "revolution will continue.” But Sanders did say what the Democratic establishment has been wanting to hear: that he endorses Hillary Clinton.

Sam Frizell is reporting the story for Time magazine.

Race in America: the Issue that Won’t Go Away 33 MIN, 36 SEC

President Obama is in Dallas today to memorialize the deaths of five policemen, gunned down by a black sniper last week during an otherwise peaceful rally. He’s called the act “a hate crime”—and at the same time he’s supporting the goals of Black Lives Matter.

We’ll hear from a black journalist who’s been to “The Heart of Whiteness,” and talk about police reform with a white cop who has three decades of service.

What are the prospects for that “post-racial America” that’s been so much discussed—even though it’s never actually happened?

Philippine’s President Duterte Orders Drug Dealers Deaths 10 MIN, 51 SEC

In last month’s inaugural address as President of the Philippines, Rodrigo Duterte said his war on drugs would be “relentless” and “sustained.” Since he took office, at least 100 suspected drug dealers have been killed by local police and vigilantes—without any judicial proceedings. The National Police Chief says calls for a Senate investigation are “legal harassment.”
