In US news and current events today, Dr, Cornel West went on CNN to explain why the U.S. is a β€˜failed social experiment.’

In the wake of the police killing of George Floyd and the subsequent George Floyd protests and Black Lives Matter protests against police brutality, police violence and police racism, it’s important to understand the centuries of systemic failure that have led us to this moment.
