S2:E6 Edward Nero acquittal, Minority Report software bias, Troy Ave and the NBA Playoffs

CjwTImEWEAIrlVG

In episode six the fellas are joined by a new guest, Arielle (@crzy4agem on Twitter). We discussed Edward Nero being acquitted of all charges in the killing of Freddie Gray. The conversation then turns to software analysis that predicts future criminal behavior is proved to be racially biased. We then discuss the shooting at the T.I. concert and Troy Ave being booked on weapons and attempted murder charges. Lastly, we gave our opinions on the Oklahoma City/Golden State NBA playoff series.

    Absolutely amazing. Found this podcast through Tunde’s blog (who needs to get back to blogging 😊). There is such power in the formation of this podcast, I respect all the opinions brought forth. It’s inspiring me to think about the bigger picture, to think outside of myself, my legacy, what I’m leaving behind, what I bring to the world, and how I can contribute/impact the black community. There’s something magnificent about being black and I’m glad NWAP is setting the standard, and representing our community in a positive light and as articulate men of color!!
