I spoke with a reporter at the University of North Florida student news publication about some of the pillars of the Justice Outreach project: defendant advocacy, cop cameras, and the TalkingRace Project.
I debated with Marc Lamont Hill on Erin Burnett OutFront about whether young black men can get justice in our system. Marc says that there are “standards and mechanisms inside the law that . . . normalize white supremacist ideas of black.” While I agree there is an undeniable bias in our criminal justice system that we must work to eradicate, my point is that the system does in fact, when the facts support it, render just verdicts when young, unarmed black people are killed. Look at the cases of Renisha McBride, Jonathan Ferrell, and Michael Dunn.
Before our TalkingRace Presentation at UNF, Dr. JeffriAnne Wilder and I commented on the significance of the Dunn verdict and how it allows us to further the conversation about race and justice.
I spoke with Action News Jacksonville about the role of race in the Dunn Trial. They also show a very short clip from our TalkingRace Project presentation and UNF.
