Is The New Texas Abortion Law Our Fight?
As the R-Kelly case looms over our head and the recent Texas Abortion Law passing, there is so much to talk about! Unfortunately, both issues directly impact the black community.  We lose the most and our people are hit the hardest.  Quenise and Brandon dive into conversation about how black men are disproportionately sentenced compared to black men. The black community reels as R-Kelly, an icon and living legend, is found guilty in sex trafficking.  Following his 20 year run of evading the law it not only makes us question why so many other perpetrators got off “scott free”?  It also makes us questions why Texas passed the new Abortion Law?  If you are wondering how all of this will impact the black community and Black World Podcast’s opinion on it, tune in today. What you will learn in this episode: If the Texas Abortion Bill is “out fight” Black women have a 32% death rate at childbirth How the foster care system will be impacted by the passing of this bill Three TIP Takeaways: Our country was built on a “fucked up” foundation that benefits white people Why it’s wrong that R-Kelly was charged as an organization when there were people helping him break the law White people are getting more abortions than people of color How you can get involved: Be sure to support the podcast by sharing it with your friends and family.
