    I'm not built for white tears...

    Cultural competence goes both ways. And there are new realizations every day to see just how important culture can be and even a divisive force. In politics, therapy and the workplace. 
    When you can’t trust that someone of another culture shares your perspective on anything? How can you build trust.. 
    Or is it even necessary?

TPeashawn ,

Thank you Ms. Banks

Just found your podcast and have listened to many episodes. You are the reason why I have decided to seek a therapist. All of the therapists I have called are very busy. I hope to get an appointment soon. Thank you so much for sharing your ups and downs. I wish you continued success.

MSW Candidate

I am currently in an MSW program. This is my last year, but I’ve been having so much anxiety around my qualifications and obtaining an internship. While I am passionate and learning so much, I feel like I don’t know nearly as much as I should. Now, I’m in a space where I want to consume as much as I can from black social workers. I started at the beginning of this podcast just to see what space the host intended to create. Needless to say, I’m obsessed. Without knowing it, I feel more empowered by listening to a black social worker. I also feel empowered to start my podcast I felt so unqualified to start.

I haven’t even tapped the surface, but thank you for your passion, knowledge, and ability to relate so heavily to your audience. ❤️

TRASH

I wish I could have been able to give ZERO stars, but Apple obviously believes in participation trophies.

This is racist, ignorant, uneducated, fecal matter. “White people are all racist blah blah nobody cares about black people especially black women blah blah”.

Get over yourselves. You want this mess to stop? It starts with Y’ALL.
