Diane talks with Caroline Chen, health care for ProPublica.
Following the mass shootings in Dayton, Ohio and El Paso, Texas, President Trump placed blame on mental illness. It’s a connection gun violence expert Jonathan Metzl calls the “the height of irresponsibility.”
Metzl says there are concrete steps we can take to prevent gun violence. But to do so effectively, he says, we must acknowledge the connection between white privilege and gun rights.
This an argument Metzl lays out in his new book “Dying of Whiteness: How the Politics of Racial Resentment is Killing America’s Heartland.”
- Jonathan Metzl Professor of sociology and psychiatry, and director of the Center for Medicine, Health, and Society, at Vanderbilt University
