NYT's Nikole Hannah-Jones: "Destroying Property, Which Can Be Replaced, Is Not Violence"

|

"New York Times Magazine" reporter and creator of the '1619 Project' Nikole Hannah-Jones talks about the death of George Floyd on CBSN.


"We need to be really careful with our language," Hannah-Jones said. "Violence is when an agent of the state kneels on a man’s neck until all of the life is leached out of his body. Destroying property, which can be replaced, is not violence. And to use the exact same language to describe those two things I think really is not moral."
