    A White Man's Journey Towards Anti-Racism

    A White Man's Journey Towards Anti-Racism

    Ben Weeda is the founder of Balenceo (www.bebalanceo.com) and also a white man who has had extensive experience in the Denver Metro Area Nonprofit and entrepreneurial space.
    In this episode Ben shares his journey of understanding whiteness, it’s pervasiveness in leadership within the nonprofit community, and some great tools to put into practice for those striving to start or continue their antiracist journey.
    He discusses the pyramid of white supremacy, implicit bias, and microaggressions. Ben recommends reading The New Jim Crow and watching 13th available on Netflix to understand one of the many places we see white supremast ideology and systems enacted.


    Thank you Ben for being so honest and open about your journey.

    Asian Latino Food, Culture, and Storytelling with The Hungry Wons

    Asian Latino Food, Culture, and Storytelling with The Hungry Wons

    It's a holiday season for many cultures throughout the world which is why MixdGen wanted to bring our listeners an episode that talks about food, culture, and storytelling with our our mixd brothers, The Hungry Wons (www.hungrywons.com)
    The Hungry Wons are two brothers, Andrew and Jona Won who share a passion for food and storytelling in large part because of their family history as Chinese-Peruvian-Colombians. 
    Their paternal grandparents include Jaime Won, born in 1915 in Guangzhou and Leonor Koosau, born in 1927 in Peru but orphaned as a baby and sent to Macau. They bothe emigrated to Peru in 1948  seeking opportunity and a better life and shared an insatiable passion for food, cooking and making memories around the dinner table. They never got a chance to meet their maternal grandfather but their maternal grandmother, Aura Saavedra, was born in 1928 in Bogota, Colombia. She also shared a passion for hearty soups and stews especially Colombian style “sancocho” soup. 
    That legacy lives on with The Hungry Wons as they  bring people together and experiment with new Asian Latino recipes. 
    FUN FACT: It is estimated that up to 20% of Peru’s population today (6 million people) have Chinese ancestry. 
    The first documented Chinese immigrants arrived in Peru in 1849 and were brought over to labor in coastal sugar plantations and mines, to construct rail roads, and to extract guano for fertilizer. “Chifa” cuisine thus emerged as a cross-pollination of Chinese and Peruvian cultures.

    "It’s just a lot of expectations from the black community or the white community...I always reference it to a ping pong ball or you being a ping pong ball because you are always battling something from side to side."
    Today’s guest, Debbie Ingram shares her experience of being the only mixd sibling within her family. We gain thoughtful insight to racial dynamics in England and Debbie’s thoughts as a fellow MIXDGEN community member with a Jamaican mother and White British father.
    We love Debbie’s powerful metaphors and advocacy for mixd people to share their stories.

Beautiful

As a white woman who is open to learning and growing and listening to everyone I appreciate this podcast so much! Thank you for teaching and for sharing your hearts and experiences!

Something New

Intriguing podcast and thoughtful conversation that left me really contemplative about my own identity and what I want that to be as well as what message I want to carry. This is a relevant and meaningful podcast and I look forward to more episodes!

Missdulcemia ,

Great start!

Great content! You might consider shortening the length to 35-45 min. 1.5 hours is a very long time commitment.
Nonetheless, thanks for sharing stories like these. As a mashy mixed hodge podge American, I really appreciate you lending this voice to the podcast listening audience.
