The disproportionate murder of people of colour by police forces, and poverty has triggered a series of Black Lives Matter protests around the world.

Are the police racist, or merely policing a structurally racist inequality?

Will the arrest of "a few bad apples" fix the problem?

Does "playing the race card" and toppling statues make things worse in a multicultural society? And if so, why has decades of peaceful protesting been so poorly received? Will more active demonstrations achieve more?

For a nuanced discussion, of all of the above, we're joined by the enormously talented Jamie Mackie whose song features at the end. https://soundcloud.com/jamie-mackie-20259246
