An Original, Fresh Perspective

My thoughts about episode 140...

After listening to a couple of episodes, I really liked the show. But I must say that I was offended by you using your public platform to make a clear distinction between Caribbean-Americans and African-Americans in a way to state that your community has been more successful because of your culture. Personally as an African-American, I applaud all Black success regardless of place of birth of the person or their family. Your comments about Caribbean-Americans having more college degrees that African Americans also demonstrates to me that you don’t really understand the African-American experience. Clearly you see yourself and your community as superior. And that’s what I found to be offensive. It’s disappointing that even in an age where white Americans are beginning to acknowledge the disparities and to see their privilege, you chose to use your platform to distinguish yourself from the larger group.

I recognize the Caribbean experience as being similar to many other immigrant groups. But to take the opportunity to toot your horn about the success of one group of Black success over others, is an insult to me and my ancestors who fought for the rights of all Blacks in this country.

Enlightening and Engaging

Another engaging and enlightening interview. I thoroughly enjoy Laura’s ability to make her guests feel comfortable enough to share their incredible stories. Her impressive and accomplished guests always leave me feeling inspired.
