KNX In Depth: Will this time be different, can the death of George Floyd finally spark institutional changes? -- The scenes from the Floyd memorial in Minneapolis & a barricaded White House in D.C. -- Dr. Robert Gallo is back

KNX In Depth
Thursday, June 4th
What happened to George Floyd has unfortunately been happening to black men pretty much since the founding of the United States.  Things were supposed to change after the civil rights movement of the 1960's, but they didn't.  Again we expected things to change after the beating of Rodney King and the resulting L.A. riots.......and again, nothing fundamentally changed.

The deaths of Michael Brown, Philando Castile, Trayvon Martin, Tamir Rice and so many more black men within just the past few years were all supposed to bring about changes......and they didn't.  So this time, in the aftermath of the killing of George Floyd, can institutional racism be changed in this country.......can this time be different? 

We'll check in on Minneapolis where friends and family have been honoring George Floyd in a very emotional memorial service.  And we'll head to Washington D.C. where the White House has been turned into a fortress of sorts with layers of fencing and security.

And the last time we checked in on Dr. Robert Gallo, one of the pioneers of HIV-AIDS research in the 1980's, he was hard at work trying to develop a coronavirus vaccine based on an old polio drug.  Dr. Gallo is back with us to give an update and talk about the challenges of manufacturing and distributing a vaccine to hundreds of millions of people.
