On this week’s TMI, we examine what Critical Race Theory is, how it stems from a need to accurately report on the history of the United States’ treatment of race, and how being against teaching it equates being against history teachers teaching history. Next, we go over some of TMI’s favorite sources for news, due to these sources’ ability to unclutter fact from opinion, and give you the most clear-eyed information available. Finally, we report on how Student Debt Relief, a promise of the Biden campaign for all, is now being dangled as a lottery prize to encourage COVID-19 vaccinations. More vaccination is a good thing, but keeping Student Debt Relief from everyone while using it like this? That’s a BAD look.

Monday, May 31, 2021 marked the 100th anniversary of one of the most horrible events in American History: the Tulsa Race Massacre.

If you’ve ever wondered what upsets your fellow Americans so much when they get told there’s no reason to feel oppressed, this will clear that up, fast.
Next, we look into studies that show that how you are named affects how others treat you. More, how others treat you can have a lasting effect on how YOU see yourself! Finally, many of us are just waiting and hoping that Donald Trump’s MANY illegal moves will finally put him away for good, but ho likely is that to happen, and more interestingly… what will happen if it does?

Then – it’s known that the longer money stays within a community, the better that community does financially. While a dollar spent in the white-owned economy stays active for weeks, a dollar spent in the black community leaves within just six hours. Enter Killer Mike and his backers, creating Greenwood Bank, a black-owned institution that will help give black and latinx people an even playing field in the economy.
Finally, we hear about how important “swing states” are in the Presidential election, but we don’t often explore how polluted with misinformation these places can be. We explore this, and much more on TMI for Friday, October 16, 2020! Listen in for your Cure for the Common Media!
