Many Ways to Support Between The Lines' Bringing Progressive Voices to More Listeners

With Google's, Facebook's and the Trump administration's attacks on "fake news" that threaten long-standing, independent media resources like Between The Lines, we are facing new challenges. From keeping up with technological changes, to the the FCC plans to dismantle Net Neutrality and allow right-wing Sinclair TV (aka "Trump TV") in 72 percent of U.S. households, we need your support as we continue to raise another $1000 by the end of this year.

Please donate now to help keep progressive voices and viewpoints on the airwaves. See our thank you gifts for your donation.

Professional Athletes Stepping Up to Protest Police Violence and Racial Injustice

Posted Sept. 28, 2016

MP3 Interview with Kevin Alexander Gray, author, activist and organizer of Harriet Tubman Freedom House Project, conducted by Scott Harris

racial

In quick succession in recent weeks, the nation was jolted into remembering the ongoing and urgent issue of police violence in communities of color. On Friday, Sept. 16, Tulsa, Oklahoma police said that when they responded to a report of an abandoned vehicle in the middle of the road, four officers confronted a 40-year-old black man, Terence Crutcher, who walked toward his vehicle with his hands up. Police said that when Crutcher refused to follow their commands, one officer shot him with a stun gun. Simultaneously, a white officer on the scene fired one round of live ammunition, killing the father of four. That officer, Betty Jo Shelby, was later indicted on charges of first-degree manslaughter.

Several days later, another police shooting in Charlotte, North Carolina, set off days of street protests that resulted in smashed windows and violence that led to another civilian-on-civilian shooting death. On Sept. 20, police said that while looking to serve a warrant on an unrelated person, they spotted Keith Lamont Scott, a 43-year-old black man, exit his vehicle with a gun, then get back into the car. When police ordered him out of the car, a black plainclothes officer fired four shots, killing Scott. Hundreds of protesters took to the streets demanding release of the police video recording of the incident. However, when the two tapes were released, there was general agreement that the recording shed little light on whether or not the shooting was justified.

In response to police violence and his view of unchecked racial injustice in the U.S., San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, engaged in a silent protest by refusing to stand for the playing of the national anthem in late August. In response, he's been attacked as unpatriotic, received death threats, but has also been favorably compared by some to Muhammad Ali for taking a courageous stand on the issues of social justice. Between The Lines’ Scott Harris spoke with Kevin Alexander Gray, a journalist, author and activist living in South Carolina. Here, Gray examines the new role some professional U.S. athletes have taken on, becoming active on the issues of racial justice.

Kevin Alexander Gray is a journalist and organizer with the Harriet Tubman Freedom House Project in South Carolina. Gray is co-editor of the book, "Killing Trayvons: An Anthology of American Violence." For more perspectives from Kevin Alexander Gray, visit kevinalexandergray.com/.
