In the first half of the show, we catch up on some of the numerous incidents of racism in the news this past week including attacks on Black people, Mexican people and immigrants, and Asian people being used as a tool for White supremacists.
In the second half of the show, we try and get to the root of the GOP’s obsession with the former president and try to understand what people are looking for and why he seems to resonate with them—often at the expense of the security of Black and Brown people in this country.

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.
