Violence is unsettling; violence in a civil demonstration is, for many, somehow more unsettling than violence sponsored by the state.
This is the last episode in our three-part conversation about Black Lives Matter. Hosts Afra, Diaodiao and guests talk about the idea of “rioting” as presented in two movies: the National Geography’s documentary LA92, and Spike Lee’s classic Do the Right Thing.
We discuss the history of tension between the Asian American immigrant community and the black community, and why this tension is still more than relevant today.
