On today's show, we spend the first half discussing a distressing and upsetting example of the consequences of failing to listen to Black women. We turn to a friend of the show and another Black media outlet called The Kansas City Defender for the story they broke nationally regarding missing Black women.
In the second half of the show, we discuss the city council meeting in Los Angeles that turned racist seeing Hispanic officials laughing and making racist remarks toward Black people and the Black community. Consideration for today's show was provided by Major Threads menswear www.MajorThreads.com, and Hip Hop Weekly Magazine www.hiphopweekly.com

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.
