Pastor Hiram

I have to ask, as a POC who is a minister and near 60 years in age, you say they the white friends in your inner circle are ones that accept something is racist if you call it so - without question. Is it not possible, even remotely, that you (or we) could be wrong about the thing we’re calling out?

I’m really not trolling or trying to be combative. It’s a sincere question.

Examples, please

I would love to know what how this racism is manifesting itself. I’m genuinely interested in knowing. Please give us some examples so that we can understand, as white people. I’m asking genuinely.

So GOOD!

After hearing Ally on Pass the Mic, talking about anti-racism, I KNEW she was someone I wanted to walk alongside and journey with! As a white educator, who’s heart is for social justice and creating change within the system, this podcast gives me a great perspective, a battle cry, and a place to learn. Thank you so much for your heart and passion, Ally!
