"Let's bring in our ABC news chief Justice correspondent Pierre Thomas. When that piece first aired Pierre exactly six months ago this weekend. Think back on where we were then and on where things stand now, any thoughts? Well, a lot has happened a lot of emotion. Protests. College for reform. I think that's where we are. We had a highly contentious presidential campaign. Some cities have moved to do some reforms in terms of moving some resource is from police to other Parts of their government agencies, including social services, But I think a lot is to come what will divide the incoming and Biden administration do in terms of trying to bridge the disconnect between some People of color and the police that served that is to be determined. Yeah. How will the Biden administration be different from the Trump Administration? Besides and beyond the obvious, Um, you know, will we see certain things? Will this be prominent? Do you think in a Biden administration? This discussion of, um you know, police behaving badly when it comes to race in this country. We don't know for certain. But we do know that in every virtually every speech that President elect Biden gives he mentions racial justice, so it's clearly a top priority or it appears to be for him, and I think he Seems to understand that this issue is not going away. I think in terms of how he will be different than the Trump administration. Well, every time you hear the president speak about Race and policing. He talks about law and order. And what you hear from Biden's of somewhat more nuanced position, which is he wants to support the police he's talking about. In some cases, giving police more resource is to do reform to do more training. But he's also saying they have to address systemic issues of racism that Biden and others believe actually exists. What do you do to keep this in the limelight to keep the discussion going? I mean, re Briana White, right from from Louisville is quoted in a story. You know somebody who was saying everybody is putting black lives matter on the street and in their windows, and that changes nothing for me. Because the next week they'll murder me on your black lives matter Decorated street, the system has to change. How do you keep the discussion going? Continuously or have we begun? And it'll just, you know, organically. Continue on. Do you think I don't think the issue is going to go away quickly? Unfortunately, I think that more unarmed black men and women will be killed and issue will explode back into our consciousness. This issue. We've not fixed it. That is clear so to some degree It will be forced back on the national agenda because God forbid what it happens again. You will see people protesting yet again, and the Biden administration will be in a position to Have to respond to it. And I think the key will be how effective are they at getting community leaders? And civil rights leaders in the same room and communicating with police departments around the country to see how they bridge that gap. What about the white supremacy movement? You've studied a lot about hate groups. You know they they In. Some people have said that they have been emboldened over the past several years. Where do you see that going? You know, looking forward. We'll make no mistake. For some reason that particular group has been energized. In fact, is FBI data that shows white supremacists and far right groups have killed more people in terms of domestic terrorism on acts of violence, then Islamic radical since 9 11 those air fax the Groups have been paying attention to the political unrest and discord in this country. Many of them want to sew a civil war. That is the agenda. It's a brazen agenda and is, one official said. Look, if this group of people in the days and years since 9 11 were willing to kill black parishioners in a church Willing to go to a Jewish synagogue and murder people in cold blood. Willing to go to Charlottesville and run over a woman and kill her and effect Don't think that they're finished just yet.
