Tatishe Nteta Quoted About A Lack Of Police Reforms Even In Left-Leaning Boston Suburbs

Provost Professor of Political Science Tatishe Nteta is quoted in a story about a lack of police reforms two years after the George Floyd murder protests, even in left-leaning Boston suburbs. “This is in some ways the story of race in America,” he says. “There are these periods of time in which there is a lot of attention on issues which pertain to people of color and you see mobilization by, in particular, whites to embrace these particular policies and over time…you see a decrease in support.” (Boston Globe, 9/28/22)
