Congress can, and should, establish a 21st century commission on race relations

Nicol Turner-Lee

Nicol Turner-Lee, fellow in the Center for Technology Innovation in the Governance Studies program, discusses the prevalence of white supremacy in America and the Trump administration’s response to it. Turner-Lee recommends that Congress create a bipartisan committee with the goal of eradicating the policies that maintain racial fractions in our society, much like President Lyndon B. Johnson did in the 1960s.
