To evaluate the underpinnings of our criminal justice system, WNYC's Legal Editor Jami Floyd assisted the Experiment reporter Tracie Hunte as they examine our fraught history with hate crime laws and prosecutions. For this episode, she joined contributors Saida Grundy, assistant professor of sociology and African American studies at Boston University, Jason Wu, co-chair of the LGBTQ advocacy group GAPIMNY, Jeannine Bell, professor at Indiana University's Maurer School of Law, and Sunayana Dumala, the founder of Forever Welcome. The "Hate Crime Conundrum", in partnership with The Atlantic, was first broadcast on July 22, 2021, and rebroadcast on January 3, 2022.
