*(Via HuffPost) – Attorney General Eric Holder, who in the past has spoken frankly about racial inequalities in the U.S. criminal justice system, will revisit the subject Thursday during an interview with MSNBC’s Joy Reid.

In a taped segment that aired Thursday (12-18-14) on “The Reid Report,” Holder and Reid met at the National Civil Rights Museum in Memphis, Tennessee, to discuss the fraught relationship between American law enforcement and many people and communities of color — an issue that has received national attention this year with the police killings of Eric Garner and Michael Brown, among other unarmed black males.

“I certainly think that we have to build up a better relationship between young people, people of color and people in law enforcement,” Holder told Reid. “There is distrust that exists on both sides. There’s misunderstanding that exists on both sides.”
