In this ep, we are discussing the tragic death of Tyler Rushing. His father, Scott Rushing joins me to discuss the circumstances surrounding his son's death and how that turned him into an activist. He joins in with many reformers who wish that police would take a more cautious line when dealing with suspects.

Yes, I know I shouldn't suggest that the Black Church is a monolith. I do understand that the churches are separate and have their own philosophy concerning community activism. However, I do want to explore whether since the Civil Rights struggle of the 1960s has the overall Black Church been doing enough to help the community move forward. Dr. Tommie Jackson is my guest.

In this episode, I welcome Dr. Rashawn Ray. We will be discussing a recent article he wrote for brookings.com. In the article called Why are Blacks dying at higher rates from COVID-19?, Dr. Ray discusses the disparate impact that the current pandemic is having among the Black and lower-income communities. We had a great discussion and I'm looking forward to having him back on to discuss his work with police and Implicit Bias.

With some of our political leaders completely out to lunch, it is up to us to stay safe in these times. These people would have us be lab rats as they "open" up the economy. Can they really be that greedy? The answer is yes. Our lives are meaningless and they have shown us that they are willing to sacrifice the weak, vulnerable, and elderly for a buck. However, we must remain wise, despite what they are saying.

For just a moment we are gonna dip away from the LE conversation and focus on the natural hair movement. We have all heard of the wrestler who had his dreds cut off before a meet, and most have heard that Gabriel Union abruptly left the show America's Got Talent over a disagreement concerning her hair. Apparently America's got talent, but no tolerance for natural or changing styles of black hair. Prof. Lori Tharps of Temple University will help to shed some light on the mystery surrounding back hair and the natural hair movement.

There has been some debate as to whether the police and correctional facilities should be abolished. My guest, Prof. Alex Vitale does not take that stance, however, he does believe that the political structure which creates and approves of many of the mandates of law enforcement should be changed or improved. Prof. Vitale is the author of End of Policing. In that work, he explores many of the roles that law enforcement has taken and analyzes whether the programs have worked or made the problems worse.

Out 4 Justice is an organization of formerly incarcerated individuals based in Baltimore, MD. Their focus is on helping those who were impacted by the criminal justice system. They advocate for policy changes which would make it easier for those who have been incarcerated to return to normal life and among other things, become gainfully employed as full participative members of society.
