Today we spend the first half of the program discussing some of the horror stories born out of Trumpism. We also compare other leaders to see if Trump is indeed an outlier insofar as his extreme followers are concerned.
For the second half of the show, we discuss Black unemployment rates, the root causes, and the cancerous effect it has on Black life in America. We also reframe several political arguments through this lens.
Our Way Black History Fact is dedicated to the Green Book…a book that helped Black motorists navigate the racism found across Jim Crow America.

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.
