    I’m disappointed with this interview. Ms. Drayton has too much militance that she is unwilling to deliver her view while allowing Trevor to temper that with his own perspective. It’s a shame. This could have been a great interview with a well-balanced perspective from both the guest and the host.

    I really like that this was more of a conversation than just an interview. I think I got a better understanding of Drayton’s ideas because she got to push back a little. Also, it goes to show there’s no one easy answer to fixing these systemic issues but rather thoughtful discussions will promote better understanding and actions.

    I hope TN would also pick up on blacks picking on Asians without any provocation & the sad part is even seniors & elderly are targeted & sadly some are severely injured. Not sure anymore that BLM is for all.

    No problem. See you later Tiffanie. Hopefully more people that are truly unhappy here in America begin to feel it is their best interest to simply leave. I love The United States and I hope my fellow citizens do as well!

    We have to take charge of this country.

    I didn’t like that she cut off Trevor. You can disagree and still be respectful in doing so. You have to be open to hearing and discussing other viewpoints; I always appreciated that about Trevor.

    Work on ways of making America more permissive and less authoritarian

    A degree of authoritarianism was required previously

    Sorry we couldn’t do better but you did start at the bottom and there were risks to everyone
