Beyoncé's "Formation World Tour" doesn't kick off for two months, but it's making news. Police union groups in Miami and New York have said they will not provide protection for her upcoming tour after some saw her Super Bowl halftime performance as anti-police.

Now the Nation of Islam's Louis Farrakhan is stepping in. He told supporters in Detroit that he's offering his movement's security group, the Fruit of Islam, to help Beyoncé with security.

Danielle Belton of The Root joins Here & Now's Meghna Chakrabarti to look at that story, and news of a debate playing out at Facebook over the Black Lives Matter movement.
