In today's episode, we discuss what is sometimes referred to as "the Black face of White supremacy." We discuss Larry Elder, Candace Owens, and other prominent, far-right Black personalities and their role in establishing and maintaining a narrative that allows many conservative and moderate White people to leave their prejudices unchecked. We also hold a critical examination of the murder of Kawasaki Trawick who was murdered by the NYPD in 2019. Because the footage was finally released, we can try and make sense of what happened and determine whether or not increased training has created any lasting departmental or procedural changes. For our B.A.B.A. segment, we stand in solidarity with our Native American brothers and sisters and discuss the #landback initiative.
