Systemic Exhaustion

As thousands of protestors fill the streets, Maria and Julio talk about the #BlackLivesMatter movement, performative allyship, and what it means to abolish the police with Karen Attiah, global opinions editor for the Washington Post and ITT All-Star Dr. Christina Greer, associate professor of political science at Fordham University and co-host of the podcast FAQ NYC. ITT Staff Picks: - Karen Attiah writes for The Washington Post about #blackouttuesday and performative solidarity. - Jenna Wortham writes for The New York Times about why this time — the biggest collective demonstration of civil unrest in our generation's memory — is different. - Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor asks, "How do we change this country?" in this article for The New Yorker.
