Our nation erupts again as another black American, this time a 29 year old named Jacob Blake, is shot seven times by police in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Blake is seen on video with his back towards police, entering his car where his three young children waited for him, when those seven shots rang out, leaving him paralyzed and in critical condition. In this week's As NOT Seen on TV special edition, Drew is joined by Paul Rainey, an Executive VP at Penske Media, and Jovan Blacknell a renowned civil rights attorney, both black adult men themselves, who respond to this latest police shooting, the traumatization of black society and Kyle Rittenhouse, the so-called ‘vigilante’ gunmen who killed two protestors this past week.
