White Supremacist in the White House: Ibram X. Kendi on Trump's Calls for "Law & Order" in Kenosha

Democracy Now! speaks with Ibram X. Kendi, director of the Center for Antiracist Research at Boston University, and air excerpts from the families of Jacob Blake and George Floyd at the massive protest marking the 57th anniversary of the March on Washington.

Kendi also discusses President Trump’s planned visit to Kenosha, Wisconsin, as he blames Democrats for violence during protests there and in Portland, Oregon.

"Racism has spread to every part of the body," says Kendi, comparing U.S. racism to cancer," and then we have a president who is claiming that it doesn't exist."
