This episode builds upon the recent focus a growth around the NFL boycott and Colin Kaepernick’s National Anthem kneeling protests by revisiting the strategic goal of the movement (to decrease police violence against non-threatening black people). We recap the findings from the July 2016 Harvard produced working paper titled “An Empirical Analysis of Racial Differences in Police Use of Force” as well as a rebuttal Harvard article titled “Roland Fryer is wrong: There is racial bias in shootings by police”. We conclude by reinforcing the fact that simply protesting the NFL is not enough. Real change will only come when the black community has the wealth and political clout to demand and win equal treatment under the law. We are still waiting on that first crucial conviction.
