    The Impact of Words 2

    The Impact of Words 2

    In this episode I talk about a new trend that is sweeping the internet, White Privilege Help Videos. I explain how they are dangerous to the progression of race relations in America because they misrepresent what racism looks like. They construct scenarios that are over the top leading to a misrepresentation of a real-life problem. Racism is not a problem that can be solved overnight or even with my one podcast, so I have developed 5 key steps to improving communication between cultures. At the end of the day, recognizing that we are different cultures with some commonalities is the best way forward.

    Policing and the Chauvin Verdict- Episode 8

    Policing and the Chauvin Verdict- Episode 8

    Today, I talked about Policing in America, not just by police officers but by citizens as well. My goal is to explain that our lack of empathy has caused us to become more divided and created more problems than we have tried to solve. From justifying heinous actions to just refusing to listen to other people's points of view. We can do better, and you can help. Thank you all so much for listening.
    ****Also I misspoke Mrs. Waters is a Representative, not a Senator.****

    I have attached some links to topics I discussed in the podcast.
