Tennessee Republican Senator Lamar Alexander speaks on the Senate floor about the civil unrest and protests in the wake of George Floyd's death. He recalls learning from his colleague, Senator Tim Scott (R-SC)--the lone African American Republican in the Senate--about being racially profiled and stopped by police in his hometown and poses a question for white people to ask themselves as they begin to try to understand the experience of Senator Scott and many Black Americans around the country. "Perhaps a good first step to changing attitudes towards racial discrimination would be for each of us who are white to ask ourselves this question. How would I feel if police in my hometown repeatedly stopped me for being a white man or white woman in the wrong place, especially if most of the other people in the town were black?" close
