Lack of accountability. Lack of justice. Their deaths matter. Their lives matter. The issue can’t be avoided. Someone, somewhere, and somehow needs to do something about it. We’re talking about “racism”. Some say we’re talking about “systemic racism”. We talk about it every time something takes place like what happened in August 2014 in Ferguson, Missouri. That’s when and where a white police officer shot and killed Michael Brown, a black teenager. And we’ve been talking about it like crazy this summer. Here we continue our talking about it for a second week on the show.
