As confederate monuments and other symbols tied to promoting racism and slavery in a positive light fall, as communities confront unjustifiable killings by police, as is typical, those who delight in such symbolism engage in what aboutism to deflect from institutional racism and the police state US citizens live under. One common talking point is “what about Chicago?” Joining me is Kwabena Rasuli of Clear The Airwaves Project which focuses on the violent music targeted towards Black communities by corporations and this violent programming is supported by the advertisement dollars of other corporations.
If these people engaging in what aboutism concerning violence in Chicago, then they should join the movement to clear the airwaves and they should financially support organizations working to solve the problem of gun violence.
