Professor Carol Anderson on Police Killings, Trump, the Clintons & “White Rage”

Democracy Now!

Published on Nov 1, 2016 – Jury selection has begun in two high-profile murder trials of white police officers who killed unarmed black men. In Ohio, former University of Cincinnati police officer Ray Tensing shot and killed 43-year-old Sam DuBose last year after stopping him for not having a front license plate. In North Charleston, South Carolina, officer Michael Slager faces a murder charge after a bystander filmed Slager shooting 50-year-old Walter Scott in the back as he ran away. For more, we speak with Carol Anderson, professor of African American studies at Emory University. She is the author, most recently, of “White Rage: The Unspoken Truth of Our Racial Divide.”
