The Point – July 17, 2013

This week on The Point, Ana and the panel discuss the George Zimmerman trial, the verdict, the fallout, and the status of race relations in America today. Where does responsibility lie for the condition of America’s racial divides? Is the disparity the result of existing social problems or is it a matter of personal responsibility? Are crime statistics enough of a basis to form public policy or do they only tell part of the story? These themes and more on The Point. Enjoy.

The Point – June 26, 2013

The whereabouts of Edward Snowden. Is the search for him justified, or seriously hurting the United States’ international relations? Celebrity antics– Amanda Bynes has been all over the news for her strange, mean-spirited behavior with many laughing at her and many others concerned for her mental health. Is this just a causality of child stardom? Kanye West and Kim Kardashian gave their daughter the name “North West”. Are weird baby names becoming the norm now? The Supreme Court overturned Prop 8 and DOMA, giving same-sex couples the right to marry. One lesbian couple celebrated with a wedding at “Equality House” in front of the WBC hate group– was this a good choice? And lastly, the best tweets of the week are all in our final segment, Off Their Feed.
