This week, we're sharing an episode of Some of My Best Friends Are...  The show is hosted by Khalil Muhammad and Ben Austen, two best friends who grew up together on the South Side of Chicago in the '80s. Khalil is Black; Ben is white. They invite listeners into their conversations about the absurdities and intricacies of race in America. Mixing anecdotes, entertaining storytelling, and thoughtful debate, Some of My Best Friends Are... helps listeners make sense of our deeply divided country. In this episode, they look back at two classic Interracial Buddy Films and their dynamic in pop culture: 48 Hours and Lethal Weapon. They ask: How did these films, and others like them, shape a generation of moviegoers' views on racism and law enforcement? What did they say about being white and Black men of the time?
