For today’s show, we spend the first half discussing some recent examples (and some now historical examples) of private White and White-passing citizens harming Black people and receiving no consequences or minimal punishments for their actions.
In the second half of the show, we examine a video that is going viral of an interaction between a Black mother, her teenage son, and a police officer who is harassing them. They are now clients of attorney Ben Crump and making national headlines. Our Way Black History Fact is dedicated to AAPI Heritage Month!

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.
