What made the experience of listening to Policing the Black Man the most enjoyable?
The essays present a side of the #blacklivesmatter story that a privileged white male is unfamiliar with. These essays helped open my eyes to the need to educate America on racism and how the political system needs to be educated in policing more equally.
Any additional comments?
The reason I didn't give it a 5 star rating is due to the selection of essays the editor (Angela Davis) chose. Once you hear the first 2 or 3 essays you have heard basically the entire book. The following essays use the same examples of police brutality and make the same basic points. I heard the same quote two or three times about how "America is moving towards two societies, one white, one black -- separate and unequal." I really wish the editor had done a better job presenting new material throughout the book as a whole.
