On this "extra long” segment of Did you know… Sunni and Lisa attempt (albeit unsuccessful) to unpack the lunacy of folks and their absolute blind ambition to succeed at becoming lower than a snake’s belly! The ladies discuss a number of atrocities committed against children in the Black Community. Curious: 1) the 6 year old kid who was arrested and made to appear in court for picking a fcuking tulip! 2) the 5 year old kid whose teacher made him pull toilet paper and feces from the toilet and 3) the “headmaster” who made the 11 year old kneel and apologize! The common denominator, wait for it - white adults and black children! Just know that Sunni loses her chit discussing these atrocities… you’ve been warned. The ladies also discuss the violent events that are happening in the Asian Community. Understand that the show’s hosts stand in solidarity and hold space for underrepresented communities. It’s going to take people from every culture and background to make that hate machine disappear for all eternity!
On this episode of Active Allyship…it’s more than a #hashtag! Sunni and Lisa talk to Bruce Reyes-Chow, author of “In Defense of Kindness…”. What an amazing human- being! *singing* “It’s a beautiful day in this neighborhood…” Seriously! The ladies were wondering where he was with the book during the 2019 Presidential campaign…it was most definitely needed! The context, the layout, the calls to action after each chapter… Yesssssss!
When Bruce shares what he was marinated in, you can immediately make the connection to his life’s journey and the book. Insightful! Wait, he’s a comedian too, he is hilarious!
Admittedly, one of the hosts stated that she didn’t want to read the book because she thought it was going to be too mushy and airy fairy. Yea, no… what a totally different experience. Of course you’ll have to listen to know who said what…but you can take a guess!
When you think of ways to show kindness, the ladies would be willing to bet “a dime to a dollar” that you wouldn’t think of Saviorism or Privilege or Resistance or Competition or Institutional Change! These discussions and so much more! You will not regret listening to this episode (or any of them really). O wait, it’s extra long so, take a really long walk or drive or prepare dinner or shucks, do nothing… but listen!
