Guest: Ryan Gabriel, PhD, BYU Sociology Professor On Wednesday, Tim Scott, the only black Republican in the US Senate, met with President Trump and advised him to avoid the kinds of statements he made after the racial violence in Charlottesville when the President said “many sides” were to blame. According to The Washington Post, Senator Scott pointed to “three centuries of history” of violence that still informs race relations today. BYU sociology professor Ryan Gabriel studies how a legacy of racial violence gets passed down in communities.
