Marc Lamont Hill, Harry Houck Battle over Race: ‘Are You Hearing What I’m Saying?’

Hill: ‘Studies show this, if you believe in science’

‘Are You Hearing What I’m Saying?’: Segment Devolves Into Sarcastic Shouting Match Over Race (Mediaite)

Harry Houck, a longtime NYPD detective, and Marc Lamont Hill of Morehouse College added to their collection of greatest hits Monday with a spirited and sarcastic segment about law enforcement and race with John Berman on CNN’s New Day.

Historically, Houck and Hill have found themselves on dueling sides of the debate, with Houck frequently explaining away the actions of police even in situations of violence. They sparred last summer over the inference that black people are prone to criminality live on CNN, and Monday’s segment was about the black law-abiding PhD student that has filed a civil lawsuit against officers who tackled him to the ground in Illinois.

“Those officers followed their procedure,” argued the NYPD vet.
