3: The U.S. Doesn’t Love You Back

In this episode, Yvette and Cynthia discuss the murder of Philando Castile, the importance of POCs serving on juries, and Batson v. Kentucky- the case that supposedly did away with race-based juror striking. They voice their desire for true accountability as prison abolitionists, recognize the uncompensated labor by POC on juries, and call-out the bullshit of “race-neutral” explanations.
