Episode 077

The US is in crisis this week. The mass murder of black Christians in Charleston, South Carolina, may yet trigger cataclysmic events and if they don't, it can only be a matter of time. Seldom does a week go by when a black man is not murdered or grievously assaulted by a white police officer, usually cleared of any blame by an all-white tribunal. Against this backdrop, meanwhile, the next generation of US leaders is beginning to take form, though whether Mrs Hillary Clinton can accurately be described as a new generation for the Democratic Party at the age of 67 is debatable. And what do you know, there’s Jeb Bush, son of one President Bush and brother of another – this is a real Republican Dynasty. Joining us this week to discuss the American imbroglio is RT's own Stacy Herbert.
