In Episode 11, the WAGNN team discusses police brutality in America as it relates to the Black and Brown communities. The ladies give their perspectives of misconduct within some public service departments and how it impacts community members. They shed light on how civil liberties are now reasons to have the police called on you or could lead to your death. The WAGNN team presents the emotions that many community members are experiencing.
WAGNN clarifies who the target audience is as it relates to anger, hurt, and sadness. Frequently, people of European descent think they are included in this group; however, this is not the case. The target audience is not the allies. The target audience is those with embedded views that lump all black people in one group, although we are different in many ways.
WAGNN also dispels that “all police are not the same” and do not share the same opinion as others. WAGNN posed the question; what if the shoe is on the other foot? Would you be upset, worn down, or feel helpless? WAGNN invites a special guess to share their experiences and how the current events affect him.
