(Studio: Anderson Cooper) Live discussion held with movie studio owner Tyler Perry about race in America. [PERRY - offers views on what he would tell Attorney General William Barr about racism & bias in America, on his optimism after the death of George Floyd as he pleaded for his life because people galvanized, but the message may be being hijacked, on how children have to face race as his own child grows up, on the Confederate statues/monuments: he wakes up with racism every day as a black man, on his view of police departments & the idea of "defunding" how we need well-trained police: not making the police small, on the death of civil rights leader Representative John Lewis to whom he told a story about a hotel Perry later owned.]
