Ibram X. Kendi on Institutionalized Racism in the United States

Just a week after the deadly shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, we host Ibram X. Kendi, founding director of the Antiracist Research and Policy Center at American University and author of the new book, How to Be an Antiracist, to discuss the ways racist acts of mass violence have been revolutionized by America's gun culture. Kendi also sheds light on the ways racism has been perpetuated throughout U.S. history, from the development of intelligence tests by eugenicists to the interwoven history of racism and capitalism in the American economy.
