Another police shooting of a Black man, social unrest and urgent calls for racial justice.  That has been the news playing behind the four-day Republican National Convention that concluded Thursday night.  12th District Congresswoman Debbie Dingell joined WEMU's David Fair to discuss, among other things, her opinion of the RNC, dealing with issues of policing and race, and the possibility of a federal government shutdown.

The US Postal Service has been at the fore of national conversation this week.  Sorting machines at local offices are being dismantled, public mailboxes are being removed, and there are service delays throughout the country.  As a result, the Postmaster General is also undergoing congressional questioning.  Michigan's 12th District Congresswoman, Debbie Dingell, addressed those issues, potential of a new COVID-19 relief package, and the party conventions in a conversation with 89.1 WEMU's David Fair.
