As the fight for racial equality and justice rages on, Dr. Travis Stork has a candid and deep conversation with his good friend and former college roommate, the Reverend Bernie Dorsey, to get a wide perspective on the current affairs of our country to help bridge the gap on Racism, discuss how religion plays a role and ultimately offer hope. The Duke graduate, lawyer and preacher reveals the hard-hitting reality of what it's like to live in this country as a black man raising 2 sons and how even he doesn't feel safe to run outside. As a husband to a civil rights attorney, he talks honestly about the constant struggle and tension black people face living in this country and the challenge to love his enemies while police are brutally killing black men. Dr. Travis and the Reverend talk about the subtle racism that exists in this country and what it really means?  How do you define racism and truly distinguish it between being prejudice? Plus, what is the best way to develop an open dialogue about Black Lives Matter vs. All Lives Matter and discuss the real issue at stake? Reverend Bernie explains the reason he thinks African Americans statistically have a higher blood pressure and why unhealthy foods are not solely to blame. There's a real cry for compassion and justice in this country, but what can you do to constitute change and keep the momentum going with peace and unity?https://www.facebook.com/Stage29Podcastshttps://twitter.com/stage29podcastshttps://www.instagram.com/stage29podcastshttps://www.instagram.com/travisstorkmdhttps://www.facebook.com/travisstorkmhttps://www.instagram.com/thedoctorstvhttps://www.facebook.com/TheDoctorshttps://historic-stpaulchurchdc.orgwww.instagram.com/revbernie Learn more about your ad choices.
