Senior researcher Martenzie Johnson joins the podcast this week — with host Clinton Yates, senior style writer Jill Hudson and sports and culture writer Justin Tinsley — to lead a conversation on the recent shooting death of former University of Southern California and New York Jets running back Joe McKnight.
As Martenzie recently wrote, the killer in the situation, like we’ve seen many times before, was a white man, and as a result he was given the benefit of the doubt even though McKnight, a black man, was the one who lost his life. We approach these situations with hope, though the outcomes remain the same.
The crew also takes a look at the nominations for the 2017 Grammy Awards, which were released Tuesday. Brace yourself. There are quite a few hot takes in this segment.
