    Has white supremacy shaped America?

    Right now racial tensions in the USA seem to be boiling over.



    Many seem to think that racism died with the civil rights movement.



    While there was progress made, we have much further to go to reach the ideas found in our constitution.



    What is the reason for our current state of affairs and why does it seem we are headed in the wrong direction?



    There are elements in the USA that keep this tension alive.



    Chief among them is the legacy of conquest and subjugation which call for the dehumanizing of “others”.



    This manifests itself today in the current racial tensions we are witnessing.



    Do whites care about this issue the way they should?



    Since the abolition of slavery, many whites have felt threatened by the emergence of black America.



    Caleb a former white supremacist shares how white supremacy manifests itself today in a post-civil rights era and describes the subtle ways it still influences culture.

    Police officers serve in one of the most criticized and privileged positions in all of society.

    GenZ'ers have grown up seeing incident after incident cross their timeline and they want it to stop.

    On this podcast, an anonymous police officer shares what he sees behind the scenes.
