(WXYZ) — On tonight's 7 UpFront segment, we speak with Steve Spreitzer, president and CEO of Michigan Roundtable for Diversity & Inclusion. The organization works with communities and the workplace to overcome racism, discrimination, systemic inequalities and institutional bias.

Spreitzer discusses the recent violence in Washington D.C. at the U.S. Capitol, and concerns over the double standard in police response compared to mostly peaceful anti-police brutality protests that happened in cities across the country last year.
