    029: Let's Talk About Palestine w/Khaled Beydoun

    029: Let's Talk About Palestine w/Khaled Beydoun

    If you've listened to the last two episodes with Andre, you know I've been wrestling with what it looks like to respect all people while also acknowledging that power disparities have an impact on how we engage with harm. I say it all the time, but I want safety and security for all people, even if they disagree with my politics.

    Like most of you, I've had Palestine and Israel on my mind for the last few weeks. Like a lots of you, I grew up with a theology around the state of Israel that made it - not unlike the US - incapable of wrongdoing.

    While I was processing this, I put up a few threads on twitter but I wanted to have a conversation with someone who actually knows what they're talking about. So I reached out to Khaled Beydoun to chat about history, justice, and colonization. Thankfully he will gracious enough to discuss this with me! I'm grateful to be able to connect with people who see respect for all people as a non-negotiable even as we reckon with the legacy of colonization.

    Here are a few places you can find Professor Beydoun online

    Twitter
    Instagram
    His latest book (Linked to Loyalty Books in DC, a Black-owned bookstore. For those in the US, you can find Black owned bookstores in your state here.)

    Part 2! The Morality of Resistance with Andre Henry

    Part 2! The Morality of Resistance with Andre Henry

    When we see injustice in the world and want to fix it, how do you keep from becoming the thing you hate? I can't stop thinking about this so I invited Andre Henry back to discuss how we create a better world without, as Audre Lord puts it, the master's tools. 

    I can't stop thinking about the issue of moral responses to violence. Where, to ask the correctly panned question, is the line? How far can the people go in their resistance before we circle right back to where our oppressors began? Who do we want to be on the other side of this?

    027: The Morality of Resistance with Andre Henry

    027: The Morality of Resistance with Andre Henry

    There are a lot of ways to protest and trying to figure out what the appropriate violence is feels overwhelmingly difficult. When the state is inherently violent, how are people committed to non-violence supposed to respond? Capitalism, the law, personal property are all values in American culture all have more value than nonwhite Americans. As Dr. King said, we have a moral responsibility to break unjust laws. So how do we do this? I spoke to Andre Henry about how we move forward in this inherently violent culture. We discuss the different moral frameworks we can try on, and the different applications of non-violent resistance.

    026: Leaving Whiteness w/ Corey Evan Leak

    026: Leaving Whiteness w/ Corey Evan Leak

    Thanks all for your generosity and patience as I'm getting stuff situated over here!!

    I had a conversation with Corey Leak about how we left white Jesus and moved into a space that is committed to material equity. We need creative imagination to create a world where no one is a commodity, no one is a product, no one is just the labor they produce. Oppressive systems need to be completely reimagined and rebuilt from the ground up.

    Check out Corey on all the things!

    025: A Brief History of White Evangelicals w/ Dr. Brad Onishi

    025: A Brief History of White Evangelicals w/ Dr. Brad Onishi

    This week, I had a conversation with Dr. Bradley Onishi. Brad is a professor of religious studies at Skidmore College, and the host of the podcast Straight White American Jesus. I think it would be safe to say - and I've told Brad this several times - that I am a little bit of a fangirl. As someone who grew up in white evangelical spaces, I'm kind of obsessed with their origin story and their devotion to empire. (You know, the thing that Jesus preached against constantly?) It's a story that feels thoroughly American.

    Please check out Brad's work. I'm a patron of his and his work is truly incredible. You can check out Straight White American Jesus podcast. I learn SO much from it.

    024: White Christian Nationalism with Blake Chastain

    024: White Christian Nationalism with Blake Chastain

    Hey y'all! Had a great conversation with Blake Chastain several months ago about the slow merging of evangelicalism and nationalism. We're currently watching evangelicalism in the US move from being a religious or spiritual identifier to a political identifier. For those of us who grew up in white evangelical spaces this isn't surprising.

    After the election of Barack Obama, white evangelical churches began closing ranks much faster than they had been before. In the 90s and 00s, there was a more room for liberal believers in white evangelical spaces but as the culture wars began to heat up with the election of the first Black (and, according to 25% of Republicans, secret Muslim) president, political "purity tests" became much more frequent.

    Check out Blake's work!
