RL 97: Karen Fleshman — Racy Conversations: The Antiracist movement
1 day ago
In this episode, I am excited to have Karen Fleshman on to talk about a different view of racism and the immediacy of the call to action she aims to instill in the future generations. Karen Fleshman is an attorney, activist, and a nationally recognized expert on racism, workplace fair practices, and police brutality. Her recent video plea to white women to stop calling cops on people of color went viral, with over 4.2 million views. In 2014 Karen founded Racy Conversations, a training company to inspire the first antiracist generation in the United States. She facilitates workshops on racism, unconscious bias, micro aggressions, sexual harassment, inclusive management practices, and raising antiracist children. Topics Covered What inspired her to leave the law and how she stumbled upon her current career of activism and inspiration How anti-racism can be considered a mindfulness practice, and how she defines mindfulness and wellness as a communal environment. Why she is so focused on white women, and how the sexism and racism are intertwined irrevocably in their fight for justice and equality. She even shares her thoughts on how white sexism has been used to propagate racism How we fight against diversity apologists who “would hire more diversely, but can’t lower our standards.” We talk on both how this mindset started, how it has been spread thought white privilege, and how we can communicate and seek each other out more to show diversity in it’s true form.
