Our entire team @TheNorthStar has been inspired by Nipsey. Before he passed we dreamed of one day partnering with him later this year to tell the stories of his work. 

Please watch and share.

Take some time to listen @TheBreakdown podcast where Shaun King in a 3-part series literally breaksdown two important SCOTUS decisions on Police Brutality that embolden and excuse Officers on using egregious and excessive force methods at their discretions. This is important.

On @TheBreakdown, hear @ShaunKing talk about how @ChesaBoudin, @CabanForQueens, and @AudiaForDA plan to transform the criminal justice system and end mass incarceration in three of America's largest cities.

I've only heard about this on http://thenorthstar.com , but I think it's (1) important, (2) relevant to anyone who works on people analytics, including in sports, and (3) the first legislative action of its kind:

.@CoryBooker, @RonWyden & @RepYvetteClarke have introduced the #Algorithmic Accountability Act, which will ask the Federal Trade Commission to require companies to evaluate “highly sensitive automated decision systems” to find #bias and #privacy risks.

The mini-series that I've had this week on @TheBreakdown has now been the most popular content we've ever produced. Start here. I break down the Supreme Court case Tennessee v. Garner and show how it set the stage for legalizing police brutality.

@TheBreakdown can I just say that these podcasts are giving me serious me hope. I swear there is something about @shaunking voice narrating these very important pieces in our struggles that puts my stomach in knots, but I CANNOT stop listening.

Replying to @shaunking @TheBreakdown

I was listening to this in the car yesterday with the hubby and he was blown away it was his first time listening in. I just had to say thank you for that. Now he is a new subscriber to the podcast.

Listened through part 1 of 3 of @TheBreakdown's latest podcast on my drive this morning and had to listen to parts 2 and 3 before going in to work. @Shaunking has an amazing way to narrate not just today's issues, but also court cases and then what it takes to fight back.

Listening to Shaun King’s @TheBreakdown 3-part podcast this week about police brutality in the U.S. & two big Supreme Court decisions that embolden/are used to train police forces. Recommend highly. They are explained very clearly & include action items. @TheNorthStar
