I’m a 61 year old native white Texan who has lived in a mixed neighborhood and worked in a predominantly African-American office for 15 years. I know that Nina Turner speaks the truth in this speech, and what a speech it is, even if it is in a Hill Rising interview. I know Nina Turner speaks the whole truth here; I feel the truth of it in my innermost soul.
If there is anyone who can inspire white people like Martin Luther King did, even some rural MAGA white people, it is Nina Turner. She explains what black people feel all the time in a cognitive, psychological and common-sensical kind of way with all of the power of American English at its best.
Oh, yeah, Nina also says that what Biden said on Charlemagne’s show was racist and why. Almost as an afterthought, which after all is exactly what Biden would be in a just society.
And it’s less than 11 minutes long. If anyone wants to post the video elsewhere on JPR, feel free. The more exposure the better, as far as I’m concerned. Now, preach it, Sister!

This citizen is tired of living in the sham country known as America. It is well past time for all the lies to be uncovered and exposed. If some must fall in the disinfecting light of day, so be it.
