Dawson hosts a panel discussing the sociological impacts of the terrorist attacks of September 11th, 2001. Panelists include: Prof. Frank Wu of the School of Law at Howard University, Dr. Renee R. Jenkins the Chair of the Department of Pediatrics at Howard University Hospital, and Dr. Russell Adams the Chairman of the Department of African American Studies at Howard University. Together, they discuss the issues facing American society as expectations of security surpass those of civil rights. They briefly talk about the psychological and emotional effects the 9/11 footage will have on children. They talk about the concept of diversity as a liability in America due to racial backlash; reaffirming that racism is not a resolved issue in America. The issue that profiling only encourages domestic terrorism instead of patriotism is also looked at.
