Question of the Day
Laura Murphy, director of the Washington office of the American Civil Liberties Union, said she lived in a development that transformed from mostly black to mostly white. She said she sent emails to her neighbors when her son was home from boarding school that pleaded, “Please, do not call the police, because if you see a young black man walking around the neighborhood with a hoodie, that’s my son.”
She urged the audience to pack a Senate subcommittee hearing next week on proposed legislation that would ban racial profiling in law enforcement, among other things.
Holder was interrupted at least half a dozen times by the audience during his speech with affirmations of “that’s right” and “there you go,” including when he said his department was working with the Department of Education, state, local, and community leaders and stakeholders to get rid of the school-to-prison pipeline.
