MSNBC’s Joy Reid is upset that Texas is opening up their economy.  We examine racial justice issues and systemic racism within the context of the COVID pandemic.  We also look at the recent comments by La Mesa Spring Valley School Board Vice President Chardá Bell-Fontenot and her concerns about opening schools and the impact on people of color.  Then we discuss the value of work to build self-esteem and pursue one’s own happiness.  Plus, we talk about some of the bad jobs we’ve had and how they helped us grow as a person.
