Why Do We Still Need To Talk About Race?
Jeff and Nate asked me to start the this relaunch by covering the super basics. So here we go. Let’s start at the very beginning.
Why Can’t I Say The N-Word?
“The solution to harm caused is not causing more harm. It’s restoration.”
Let’s get this one out of the way. You can’t say the N-word. You can’t wear a headdress. You can’t have a spirit animal. In this episode Tori Williams Douglass and Alice Hamilton talk about WHY these actions cause so much harm, regardless of intent.
But I Have A Black Friend!
In episode three, Alice Hamilton is back with Tori Williams Douglass to talk about how No, You Don’t Actually Have A Black Friend. You have a Black colleague. Or a Black neighbor. Or a Black barista.
“If I can’t talk to you about every part of my life, we’re not actually friends.” – Alice.
