BTR News: Starbucks, Racism & Modern Slavery In the United States

Welcome to BTR News w/ Scotty Reid and on this segment, I will be talking about the current outrage and calls for boycotts against Starbucks for racist treatment of Black people and the lack of outrage concerning its reported use of prison slave labor to increase its bottom line.

I also want to discuss the reported riot at Lee Correctional Institution in Bishopville, S.C. that result in 7 dead inmates and whether or not prison officials and anyone else in government are responsible for maintaining conditions that breed violence and graft and should be brought up on charges of negligent homicide in their failure to provide humane conditions for the people entirely under their control.

Joining me in a discussion about these topics is slavery abolitionist Max Parthas, a host, and producer of the award-winning New Abolitionists Radio.
