The first part of today’s show deals with the comments made by the creator of the Dilbert comic strip who suggested that White people should “get the hell away from Black people!” We dig a bit deeper to find the source of his discontent and examine how that came to be. We also share some thoughts on how you can challenge this argumentative framework in your own life.
The second part of the show is dedicated to educating you about the Republican nominees for the presidential race in 2024. We discuss some of their platforms, plans, and how they relate to each other. Our Way Black History Fact covers the MOVE bombing in Philadelphia in 1985.

About Civic Cipher
Civic Cipher is a weekly radio show hosted by Ramses Ja and Q. Ward. This show is dedicated to empowering Black and Brown voices, allowing them to engage directly with their communities as well as the general population. Self-determination is critical to securing a future free of oppressive systems, and Civic Cipher exists to facilitate discussions toward this end. Furthermore, Civic Cipher seeks to inform non-POC allies who may not be privy to these types of discussions and optics. Finally, Civic Cipher seeks to provide long-form conversations in spaces where there is often a lack of significant resources, potent dialogue, or the necessary engagement for facilitating a healthy and productive civil discourse.
