We speak to Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D) as he prepares to leave office after four years at the helm.
Guest Host: Jen Golbeck
It was already a troubling year. A succession of black men apparently killed by white police officers. Riots in Baltimore. Then Dylann Roof allegedly walked into a church in Charleston and killed nine people–all of them black. Some see these all as clearly racist incidents. Others say they’re isolated events. We examine the national discussion sparked by these deadly events and explore the challenges of discussing race and racism in America today.
