Tim Wise is one of America's and the world's leading experts on white privilege and racism. He is the author of numerous books including his most recent Under the Affluence: Shaming the Poor, Praising the Rich and Sacrificing the Future of America.
Tim Wise explains how the coronavirus plague and the types of surveillance and changes in personal behavior and freedom it requires are a crisis for white entitlement and white privilege.
Tim Wise also reflects on how only white men such as Donald Trump and his cabal could still be viewed as competent given their gross and willful negligence in how they chose to (not) respond to the coronavirus pandemic.
And he connects the dots between Donald Trump the human opioid of white rage and the plans by white supremacist terrorists to use the coronavirus as an opportunity to engage in acts of violence and other terrorism.
Mama DeVega also makes her triumphant much-anticipated return to The Chauncey DeVega Show. She is very angry about people who do not practice social distancing. Most importantly, Mama DeVega also shares her plans for eradicating the coronavirus pandemic.
Chauncey DeVega reflects on the grief and pain of the world and what it really means to be a hope warrior in the Age of Trump and the Coronavirus Plague. Chauncey also highlights how the United States and the world are in such dire economic straits that even gangster capitalists such as the IMF are calling for state intervention in the form of guaranteed universal income in order to save capitalism from devouring itself.
And Chauncey DeVega also shares a bit of “hidden history” about mass hysterical laughter as a way that societies in crisis react to collective grief, loss, and shock.
