This week on Basic Black: perceptions and realities on two fronts. We take a look at Ebola and race. Also, the ACLU of Massachusetts released a report charging the Boston Police Department with racial bias, a charge the Department vigorously rejects, pointing to advances made in the last few years under the leadership of Commissioner William Evans.
