Episode 31: Bridging the BLM Divide with Ali Akbar
What a tough summer it’s been, and not just because of a more-bitter-than-usual Presidential race going on. A string of police involved shootings has exposed the depth of America’s racial divisions. On this crummy little podcast, conservative activist, blogger, and writer Ali Akbar talks about the American right can balance this out. Ali’s background on the political right and appreciation for the legitimate anger in the black community makes him a unique and important voice on this topic. (By the way, I did my best to try not to sound like a clueless white dude talking about these issues, but I am a clueless white dude. Hope that doesn’t come off as too offensive.)

He writes a bunch of places, too, but you can find a lot of his stuff on Medium.
