023: Dear White Women with Sara Blanchard & Misasha Suzuki Graham
Let’s be real, there’s a lot of learning and unlearning that needs to happen for white people, especially white women. In this episode, I was joined by Sara Blanchard and Misasha Suzuki Graham, the podcast hosts and founders of Dear White Women.
Sara and Misasha drop so many valuable gems in this episode about dismantling white supremacy through teaching kids about the history of the n-word and having those tough conversations with your kids about why this word is unacceptable.
What’s in this episode:
Why people who aren’t black can’t use the n-word
How to have conversations with your children about the n-word
The fears that parents of black children have (and other children of color)
Why women should identify with womanhood before their race
How to stand up for others and yourselves
Why you have to be critical about the media you consume
Why you have to remember the humanity of others
How to change your behavior patterns and support minority-owned businesses and brands
The identity struggles that Asians go through
Why you should seek time affluence over money affluence
