Check out the preview below from CBS.
RACISM PUBLIC HEALTH THREAT: For decades, research has shown Black Americans are more prone to serious disease and death than Whites in America, leading the Centers for Disease Control to declare racism as a serious public health threat. Since the outbreak of the pandemic, communities of color have been hit especially hard, with Black Americans dying of COVID-19 at twice the rate as White Americans. Bill Whitaker reports on the research and the factors that play into its findings.
ARIZONA OATH KEEPERS: The largest chapter of the Oath Keepers sharply criticized its national leader for the breach of the Capitol on January 6, when several Oath Keepers in military gear went through the building’s doors. Oath Keepers national head, Stewart Rhodes, was present outside the Capitol and in communication with the group’s members there that day, some of whom are targets of the FBI’s investigation into the riot. The Oath Keepers is a 12-year-old organization whose members swear to uphold their oath to the U.S. Constitution and regularly bear arms and wear military gear in public; the FBI calls the group an anti-government militia movement.
