Ep. 193: Michael Eric Dyson on Donald Trump and America's Moral Crisis

Michael Eric Dyson is the guest on this week's episode of The Chauncey DeVega Show. He is a Professor of Sociology at Georgetown University and the author of many books including What Truth Sounds Like: Robert F. Kennedy, James Baldwin, and Our Unfinished Conversation About Race in America as well as Tears We Cannot Stop: A Sermon to White America

Dr. Dyson is also a frequent guest on Real Time with Bill Maher as well CNN, MSNBC, and NPR. 

During this episode of The Chauncey DeVega Show, Professor Dyson and Chauncey discuss the crisis in moral leadership and values which birthed Donald Trump's presidency, how right-wing Christians helped to conceive this wholesale abandonment of democracy and dignity, and how whiteness and white privilege have (again) undermined the common good--and yes, how such values also hurt white people. Professor Dyson and Chauncey also discuss the burden that black and brown people have to save American democracy from white racism and those individuals and forces such as Donald Trump and his white rage-filled supporters. 

In this week's episode, Chauncey DeVega ponders the alpha male bromance between Donald Trump and North Korea's Kim Jong Un, Trump's Fox News madness and threats against Americans who are not sufficiently "loyal". Chauncey is also enraged by the wicked evil that is how Trump's regime is breaking up families at the Mexican-U.S. border and explains the reckoning that is coming to America.
