The Arc of Racial Progress with Neil deGrasse Tyson

In this episode, I interview Neil deGrasse Tyson, an American astrophysicist, author, and science communicator. In the first half of this episode, we talk about the progress that has been made in reducing racism since Neil was a child, and the prevalence of racial profiling and stereotyping in the mainstream media. In the second half, we talk about police brutality, different ways of passing data on police killing unarmed civilians, and whether an attitude of optimism or pessimism is warranted at this moment.
