Ethics Today

Is racism in America getting worse?

June 3, 2020

Is racism today worse than it was twenty years ago, or are we just seeing more evidence of it due to social media?

In this episode of Ethics Today we talk to Dr. Andre Johnson, Associate Professor of Rhetoric and Media Studies at the University of Memphis, co-author of "The Struggle over Black Lives Matter and All Lives Matter," and Senior Pastor at Gifts of Life Ministries, an inner-city church in Memphis, Tennessee. We discuss the recent protests over the murder of George Floyd, the goals of the protest organizers, how policing could be reformed, and how black people and white people see racism differently.

If you wish to learn more about Gifts of Life Ministries and help support the efforts of Dr. Johnson and his congregation to address racial injustice, go to http://glife02.blogspot.com/.

Hosted by Richard Kyte of the DB Reinhart Institute for Ethics in Leadership at Viterbo University.
