    Deconstructing Karen with Regina Jackson and Saira Rao

    Deconstructing Karen with Regina Jackson and Saira Rao

    Regina Jackson and Saira Rao are co-founders of Race2Dinner, co-authors of White Women: Everything You Already Know About Your Own Racism and How To Do Better, and the subjects and Executive Producers of the film Deconstructing Karen.
     
    Regina Jackson was born in Chicago in 1950 and remembers an America where everything was in Black and white. Burned into her memory are; the beatings and horrific treatment of civil rights workers throughout the south, the Goodman, Chaney & Schwerner murders, the murder of Viola Liuzzo, the murder of Martin Luther King, Jr. and the murders of President John Kennedy and his brother Robert. The violence perpetrated on innocent people going about their lives, by white people. It is these memories that drive Regina to push for real change in America. Which is why she co-founded Race 2 Dinner.
     
    Saira Rao grew up in Richmond, Virginia, the daughter of Indian immigrants. For forty years, she wasted her precious time aspiring to be white and accepted by dominant white society, a futile task for anyone not born with white skin. Several years ago, Saira began the painful process of dismantling her own internalized oppression. Saira is a lawyer-by-training, a former congressional candidate, a published novelist and an entrepreneur.

Dunker4178 ,

I’m totally on your side!

If there’s a word that’s more powerful than “amazing”, this is how I describe this podcast. I just finished eps 67 with guest Monique Melton and I feel high!!! What an inspiring and stimulating conversation. Now here’s the real truth...I’m an older white man and I completely agree without question! Keep on keeping on ladies!!!

One of My Favorite Podcasts

I love the SOR podcast. Tina and Jen are doing amazing work through the conversations they are having and the ways they are equipping others to dismantle white supremacy. I'm so incredibly grateful for them.
