Civil Unrest in Minneapolis


Dr. Peter Hart-Brinson, associate professor of Sociology and Communication and Journalism at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, joins us to discuss the death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police, as well as the subsequent protests and other unrest that's taken place in Minneapolis and numerous other urban areas around the country. Hart-Brinson explains his initial reaction, while also addressing the ongoing problem of racism, the challenges facing police and police unions, the mindset behind rioting and looting,"implicit bias," and the best place to start for those interested in helping to bring change.
