In this week’s Defender

On Social. In this week’s centerfold, we take a look at some of the most talked-about stories on the Internet. Check out what has people buzzing, and what they have to say about it.

Coronavirus tops 100,000 deaths. Our ‘In Focus’ section features a poll from the NAACP on how African Americans are viewing this pandemic. You’ll also want to check out our story on the role religion is playing.

Biden’s gaffe. Former Vice President Joe Biden has put his foot in his mouth again with his “You ain’t Black” comment. But, Biden apologized for the comment, saying he was being “too cavalier” in his interview with radio host Charlamange tha God. In this week’s story, many believe the gaffe opens the door for a Black woman VP.
