On today’s show, Brian Edwards-Tiekert and Cat Brooks discuss the extremist demonstrations that are imminent in the Bay Area, how we should strategize to combat them, and Trump’s response to the protest in Charlottesville.

Then, Cat Brooks interviews Daria Roithmayr about her book Reproducing Racism, which explores the ways in which our institutions and personal relationships automatically pass on racist practices from generation to generation.
