Irreconcilable Anti-Blackness and Police Violence w Dr. Frank Wilderson

Dr. Frank Wilderson was back with The Killer Bs (Drs. Jared Ball, Todd Steven Burroughs and Hate) recently to discuss police violence within the context of anti-Blackness.  We discussed the on-going crisis of police brutality and particularly how that persistent violence explains a larger and permanent “social death” imposed on Black people in the U.S. and around the world.  Wilderson also made strong and challenging points about how this anti-Blackness disturbs attempts at solidarity with others most often associated with allied struggles for civil and human rights.
