Great Podcast Love JJ Green

I love JJ Green but think Chris Core has a lot to learn. As for Shelby Steele, he has been indoctrinated by Fox News and suffers from self hatred and delusion. Not sure what world he is living in with his views on racism or the lack of it. He’s hard to listen to.

The privilege

I love the podcast. Dr. Shelby Steele is all wrong. His point of view is to the extreme right. He failed to mention how the US government used housing to keep Blacks from creating generational wealth. Yes there are areas were blacks need to strap up and move forward. However we can’t ignore the white supremacy that still has its foot on the necks of blacks. Basically because blacks can drink at the same water fountain as whites we should ignore mass incarceration and police brutality? Mr. Steele is out of his mind. All the progress we made came from protesting yet he says protesting is a waste of time. Maybe the establishment is paying him to say the things he’s saying.

This one

The topic was as good as the first three. I have a question. I’m a Afro Latino Puerto Rican. I grow up in both worlds of African American and Latino American. As a young man in NYC we where all one grow. Today as a 53 old I find that the Latino and African American community is divided. I’ve come across terms like bean eaters, Mira Mira people, the julios, speks and wet backs. And they are not coming from white people. It’s coming from my co works that are African American. How do we deal with these issues in our community.
