Do Progressives Take Communities of Color for Granted?

In this special collaboration with “In The Thick,” Michele and Igor are joined by Maria Hinojosa, president of the Futuro Media Group and host of NPR’s Latino USA, and Julio Ricardo Varela, Futuro’s digital media director and founder of Latino Rebels. They discuss Sunday’s mass shooting at a church in Sutherland Springs, Texas, and the killer’s troubling past. Then they explore biases in the progressive community and in the media, as well as offer ideas on how to fix it.
