At the 2017 Mackinac Policy Conference this week, Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan flatly explained to a mostly white audience the systematic racism that shaped the city of Detroit and the surrounding region. This Week in Review, Weekend Edition host Rebecca Kruth and senior news analyst Jack Lessnberry talk about the impact of Duggan's speech and his vision for Detroit's future.

They also discuss the toxic political culture that Gov. Rick Snyder says is the nation's biggest threat, state Sen. Patrick Colbeck's announcement that he'll run for governor in 2018, and Snyder's call for compromise on teacher retirement plans.
