Here is the Solution!
I wish everyone in this country, starting with every member of Congress would listen to this podcast, starting with the conversation with Coates on Understanding Racial Disparity. Wilmore is doing something that no one else is - he's having a conversation, and making a point to address to concerns of those who start in disagreement with him.
More importantly, he understands the feelings of those who would instantly shut down when the words "reparations" or other loaded terms might come up. If we could just start there - understanding that not everyone has to agree with us, but carefully explaining where we come from, we'd all be so much better.
And, yeah, he's still funny as heck, too. THANKS Larry!
