The protests around the country over the tragic death of George Floyd have started a conversation about race in our society. We have seen protests about racial injustice before, following the deaths of Eric Garner, Michael Brown and Freddie Gray.

Talking about the injustices facing black people every day has also brought up the topic of white privilege. What have we learned about how it has shaped our society, and how can white people help stand against racial inequality?

Joining Currents News to discuss is Father Bryan Massingale, a professor of theological and social ethics at Fordham University.
