BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — Nick Hill lll, The President and CEO of the Kern County Black Chamber of Commerce is asking for a stop to African-Americans being subjected to police brutality over the years, in the wake of George Floyd's death.
He spoke on Eyewitness News Mornings about the changes he'd like to see in Kern County, and what he hopes the outcome will be of the recent protests in town, some of the biggest demonstrations he has seen here.
"A lot of diversity education is number one, in fixing the problem," said Hill. "We can't train white people on how to deal with African-American values and issues. That's something they have to do within them selves."
Hill also says policy change is needed to put a stop to this.
"We can protest all we want, but it's not going to make an impact until we put something on the SB and AB level to stop this."
