What will it take for us to take police bias seriously?
You can also find previous episodes on YouTube here.
Once again we are confronted with a week where two black men were killed by police officers. The one on video shows the person following police orders and still getting killed. The second one was a man just sitting in his car seemingly waiting for his son. It is clear that every person of color has reason to fear any encounter with police irrespective of their behavior. Police bias is real. We will talk about that.
