Kimberle Crenshaw on School Assault, Yousef Munayyer on Israel/Palestine Narratives

This week on CounterSpin: Many people were outraged by video evidence of a police officer violently assaulting and arresting a young black woman—not just by the brutality of the attack on a person who posed no threat, but because of where it happened, in a high school classroom. The incident at Spring Valley High School in South Carolina reflects a lot of problems, from the school-to-prison pipeline to the marginalization of black girls and women in conversations about state violence. We’ll talk about it with UCLA and Columbia law professor Kimberle Crenshaw, of the African American Policy Forum, producers of the report Black Girls Matter: Pushed Out, Overpoliced and Underprotected.
