The state of Maine is almost 95% white. The town of Brunswick is roughly 90% white. But in the wake of George Floyd, protests have appeared around the country, regardless of demographic. This week, I spoke with Felix Abongo, a participant at last week’s protest, as well as a local police officer, to hear their thoughts on racial issues in America.
