Asking the Deeper Questions Around Race and Inequality
In this solo episode, I explore how human beings engage with one another, how we take a stand or speak up, and how we express ourselves when faced with hot-button, emotional issues. Last week, the President publicly commented about the athletes and teams who are taking a knee during the national anthem to protest racial oppression and inequality. And as a former pro-athlete, who always stood with my hand over my heart in front of the flag during the national anthem, I wonder what I will do the next time I am at a sporting event and the national anthem is played? I believe this issue goes deeper than politics, deeper than the social commentary it’s about who we are as human beings. How do we respectfully take a stand for what we believe in? Key Takeaways: [1:07] Taking a knee and what it says about who we are as human beings. [6:24] It's hard for 'privileged' white men to talk about race and inequality. [16:51] Using dehumanizing language is at the genesis of genocide. [21:37] The false choice we are faced with. [25:17] Embracing each other even when we disagree.
