In the wake of viral videos capturing incidents of everyday racism against African Americans, Ashlee Banks sits down with Salon magazine Editor-at-large D. Watkins on this week’s edition of Race in America. They discuss the video of a referee cutting off the natural hair of a high school wrestler and of the man who had the cops called on him at the Double Tree Hotel in Portland. Watkins speaks on racial profiling and how just being Black and existing in public spaces can be enough to attract harassment.
