Episode 28: A Modern Lynching

Richard-Collins-III

 

 

Hey everyone. When we spoke about this last week, we didn’t know that we were going to also have to read about a white guy running down a young Quinalt father. We didn’t know that a man with a history of white supremacy was going to stab and kill two men and injure another who were trying to protect two Muslim women in Portland.

We didn’t know. We should have been able to see that a pattern of violence emerges as summer approaches, but it always takes one’s breath away.

This episode, Episode 28, we’ll be talking about the ghastly murder of Richard Collins III, we reference Dave Zirin’s thought piece on why calling this a lynching is the right thing to do.

Rest in power, Richard Collins III, we can only hope that we can do better protecting our future leaders.
