Former Secretary of Labor Robert Reich breaks down 7 lessons we should take away from 2020: 1. Workers keep America going, not billionaires. 2. Systemic racism is literally killing Black and brown Americans. 3. If we can afford to bail out corporations and Wall Street, we can afford to invest in the American people. 4. Governors and mayors are running the country, not Trump. 5. Healthcare must be made a right in America. 6. Our social safety nets are woefully broken. 7. Government matters. It's tragic that it took record unemployment, graphic videos of Black Americans being murdered, and millions of people taking to the streets for many of us to grasp how backwards, broken, and racist our system really is. We cannot cling to the idea of "going back to normal" because "normal" is what got us here. We can no longer accept piecemeal reforms of our broken systems. We need to embrace radical transformation and undergo a fundamental reinvestment in the American people.

After a surprising third-place finish in the New Hampshire primary, Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar is attempting to gain ground in the national polls. But Klobuchar is also facing mounting scrutiny over her record as a district attorney in Minnesota. The Minneapolis NAACP, Black Lives Matter Twin Cities and other racial justice groups recently called on Klobuchar to suspend her presidential campaign following a shocking investigation by the Associated Press. The AP report centered on the case of Myon Burrell, an African-American teenager who was sentenced to life in prison over the 2002 murder of 11-year-old Tyesha Edwards. Klobuchar led the case against Myon Burrell when she was Hennepin County’s district attorney, but the AP report says she may have mishandled the case and that Burrell could be innocent. The Associated Press report shows how prosecutors had no DNA or fingerprints tying Burrell to the murder and that they relied on jailhouse informants, some of whom have since recanted their testimonies. Burrell has always maintained his innocence. On the campaign trail, Klobuchar has cited the jailing of Burrell as one of her achievements and brought up the conviction during a debate in September. We speak with Nekima Levy Armstrong, civil rights attorney, activist, head of the Racial Justice Network and former president of the Minneapolis chapter of the NAACP. “It’s shocking at this point that Amy Klobuchar is still in the race for president of the United States, given the significance of Myon Burrell’s case,” she says.
