Squaring Up Against a Racist Massacre

Fifth & Mission show

Summary: At a vigil in Oakland following the white supremacist killing of 10 Black people at a grocery store in Buffalo, people grappled with how to move forward amid a resurgence of hate. They felt anger and fear and fatigue, while expressing resolve and "Black joy." Chronicle columnist Justin Phillips and Oakland community leader Cat Brooks — who organized the vigil — discuss the "replacement" conspiracy theory cited by the shooter and tell host Demian Bulwa that confronting such racism requires standing up to injustice across society. | Unlimited Chronicle access: sfchronicle.com/pod Learn more about your ad choices.
