Episode 72 – I need you to focus

Shaun King SAVE THIS

Transcript, Web links and Credits below.



Today I have two stories to share. One you know and the other you probably don’t.

First — I need us to pause, exhale a bit, and revisit the fact that the President of the United States directly inspired the deadliest hate crime in our nation since 1921. Don’t move on. I need you to linger there. I’m going to unpack and explain why I think Trump should be held criminally liable for it.

Then, in the midst of all of this, something beautiful happened last night in Jackson, Mississippi, and I can’t wait to share the good news. And then tell you how we can duplicate this all over the country.

This is Shaun King and you are listening to (The Breakdown)!


It’s hard to stay focused in 2019. I sincerely think it’s one of the biggest struggles of our age. Let me tell you what I mean.
