More than one month after a viral video showing a verbal conflict between a philosophy teaching assistant and student was posted on Facebook, people are still waiting to see the outcome of the racial and legal implications of the employee’s speech.

You're listening to The Red & Black's News & Brews, a weekly recap of Athens and University of Georgia news and a look ahead to some important events.

Today we're with staff writer Spencer Donovan to take a look at the legal and racial debate that sounded a University of Georgia teaching assistant's comments on social media. We'll also be talking about a new pharmacy that opened in East Athens and a state bill that would update Georgia voting machines.
