Over at RhReality Check, I wrote about how the next Attorney General of the United States Department of Justice must prioritize racial justice. Here’s an excerpt:
Publicly contextualizing the past and current role that racism plays in the experiences of communities of color should be the norm, not the exception, among policymakers and elected officials. The new attorney general will undoubtedly continue to use litigation, investigations, and agency coordination under the Civil Rights Division’s leadership to enforce individual rights under anti-discrimination laws. But he or she should also prioritize tackling the racial bias that has entrenched itself in the bedrock of institutions of power in our country.
