Video: Dr. Douglas Interviewed By Fox News

June 17, 2020 | 2 Comments

Bermudian Dr. Ty-Ron Douglas was recently interviewed by Fox News host Martha MacCallum in a segment discussing the fatal shooting of Rayshard Brooks, a black man shot by police in Atlanta, Georgia, as well as the impact of systemic racism.

In opening the segment, Dr. Douglas is asked what goes through his mind with reviewing the circumstances surrounding the death of Mr. Brooks, with the Bermudian replying, “What goes through my mind is what I believe should go through the mind of any person who cares about human life, and that is pain.

“That is anger and frustration at the loss of another human being, in particular a young black male who, frankly, should not be dead.”

Dr. Douglas is the author of Border Crossing Brothas: Black Males Navigating Race, Place and Complex Space, which won a 2017 Society of Professors of Education Outstanding Book Award and a 2017 Critics’ Choice Award.

    I agree. Skin color should not have anything to do with empathy for a situation such as this. I hadn’t heard of this incident until I read the police chief resigned and still have not seen or read details. I get upset anymore when seeing such news that I have all but quit following any news outlets. This is a tangent but I believe punishment, for example George Floyd, should be death sentence by the same means as his murder.

    Well spoken Dr.Ty.
