Matthew Horace

Retired law enforcement officer and CNN and Wall Street Journal contributor Matthew Horace offers an unforgettable account of the racism, bigotry, and colorlines that permeate America’s law enforcement culture, institution, and system, and lays out a blueprint for change. Matthew Horace was a law enforcement officer at the federal, state and local level for 28 years working in every state in the country. Yet it was after seven years of service when Horace found himself face-down on the ground with a gun pointed at his head by a white fellow officer, that he fully understood the racism seething within America's police departments. Using heart-wrenching reportage, on-the-ground research, and personal accounts garnered by interviews with police and government officials around the country, Horace presents an insider’s critical examination of police racism, implicit bias and tactics in what he concludes is an “archaic system” built on “toxic brotherhood.” He dissects some of the nation's most highly publicized police shootings to explain how the biases that black and white police harbor bring detrimental outcomes to the people they serve. Horace shares fresh analysis on communities experiencing the harm of racist policing such as Ferguson, New Orleans, Baltimore, and Chicago to uncover what has sown the seeds of violence. Timely and provocative, The Black and The Blue sheds light on what truly goes on behind the blue line. News Reel : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2YlQnzwtgAA
