A painful part of Andy's less-pleasant past emerges when activist Kwasi Olashula is found shot to death in his car along with a drug dealer. Lt. Fancy orders Andy to not talk bad about Kwasi until they know the whole story, which ends up with Kwasi dying a hero over a drug dealer's confiscated items. Kwasi's family angrily confronts Andy about his racism, and Bobby later listens in discomfort as Andy explains the origin of his problems with African Americans going back to his childhood and early days on the force. Elsewhere, James and Greg investigate a murder at a bodega, but are unable to close the case because everyone involved is lying.
