10:00am Krista Tippett On Being  Could we learn to talk about whiteness? The writer Eula Biss has been thinking and writing about being white and raising white children in a multi-racial world for a long time. She helpfully opens up words and ideas like “complacence,” “guilt,” and something related to privilege called “opportunity hoarding.” To be in this uncomfortable conversation is to realize how these words alone, taken seriously, can shake us up in necessary ways — but also how the limits of words make these conversations at once more messy and more urgent.

7:00pm SPECIAL: Intelligence Squared  Is Policing Racially Biased?  Since the shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri in 2014, the deaths of many African Americans at the hands of law enforcement have captured the public’s attention, from Tamir Rice, to Philando Castile. But there are some who say that these encounters have fed a narrative of biased policing that the data does not back up, vilifying people who are trying to do good in a difficult job that often puts them in harm’s way. Does crime drive law enforcement’s use of force, or is there racial bias? The debaters are Gloria Browne-Marshall, Heather Mac Donald, Marq Claxton, and Harry Stern.
