Race lessons: Friendship offers KING 5 anchors new perspectives

KING 5 anchors Joyce Taylor and Mark Wright reflect on lessons learned from their inter-racial friendship.

As protests over the death of George Floyd broke out across the country, KING 5 anchors Joyce Taylor and Mark Wright shared an open dialogue about race and racism.

Over their years sharing an anchor desk, Wright says the two have had many conversations, and Taylor helped open his eyes to challenges people of color have in the U.S.

The pair discussed challenging conversations about trust, parenting and interactions with police.

“The relationship that you and I have had is what you and I all need to do. Is to take that step and be brave and know that we’re going to make mistakes and know that we’re not going to say always the right thing,” Wright said.
