W. Kamau Bell: What you need to know about "defund the police"

(CNN)"United Shades of America" returns tonight with an episode on policing in America. And while that may seem like we ripped it from all the recent headlines, in reality the headlines just haven't changed that much since the show went off the air last summer.

From the murder of George Floyd to the killings of Adam Toledo; Daunte Wright; Mario Gonzalez, Ma'Khia Bryant and Andrew Brown, Jr., we are having many of the same conversations about policing over and over. Many of us (like me) are getting frustrated that the conversations don't evolve. Many of us are getting stuck in the same rhetorical cul-de-sacs. And some of you out there won't even Google the thing that frightens you most about this conversation: Wait for it ... "Defund The Police."
