Tyre Nichols. Is this a race thing?

We’re weighing in on the heated debate erupting across our country in the wake of Tyre Nichols murder. Nichols, a black man, was pulled over and subsequently killed by black police officers. Is this racist? Let’s ask better questions.

Listen to hear us talk about:
- Was this interaction racist? Embracing nuance.
- White supremacy is a cultural rather than enacted by a specific group
- Law enforcement system reform (unchecked power)
- Police were created to catch slaves
- Media & the decisions made around what is worthy of our nation’s attention (economy of attention)
- The idea of “That’s not ‘my’ problem - I can’t relate”
- Reclaiming our humanity
