ABSTRACT

Compound Crisis: Cops, Climate, and COVID (Critical Race Studies) [video]   [open html - 0B]

In this video, Professor Olúfẹmi Táíwò (Georgetown University) discusses the impact of historic crises on modern day democracies. From the Webpage: "Although the COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] pandemic and the climate crisis are both provoked by natural phenomena, the dangers they present are just as political as the crisis of police violence. Moreover, these crises overlap and compound each other in important ways. The size, scope, and longevity of the suffering they trigger will be largely decided by the institutional responses to challenges and the power dynamics that structure them. A historic debate about the relationship of famine to colonialism and democracy helps show why the compound crisis could lead to intensification of racist police violence, climate apartheid, and climate colonialism." The duration of this video is 36 minutes and 9 seconds. This video also has a transcript available.
