Over the weekend, a white gunman carried out a racist attack at a supermarket in Buffalo, New York, killing ten people and injuring three others. The majority of the victims were Black. In this sample from the CAFE Insider podcast, Preet and Joyce discuss the possibility that federal prosecutors bring hate crime charges against the shooter.
In the full episode, Preet and Joyce discuss:

- The racist attack carried out by a white gunman at a Buffalo supermarket, and the potential hate crime charges prosecutors might bring against the shooter;
- The likelihood that Donald Trump will comply with a Manhattan judge’s conditions for the removal of a civil contempt order; and
