LISTEN HERE

Disclaimer: If you’re overly sensitive or easily offended by honest real talk about race, this may not be the episode for you. Listen at your own discretion.

Let’s face it: people are afraid to have conversations about race. It’s difficult. It can be uncomfortable. You might not know what to say. Maybe you’re hyper aware of race, or maybe you’re completely clueless. People of color experience racial injustices every single day that white people will never understand.

And it’s not going to get any better unless we start having real, honest conversations about race. In today’s episode, I’m talking with Monica about the history of racism, dispelling stereotypes that white people have about black people, and shifting our thinking away from assumptions based on prejudice. And Monica is sharing personal experiences and valuable perspectives that you do not want to miss.

It’s time to put in the work. Educate yourself. Say something. Even if it sounds stupid or offensive, ask questions. Learn and grow. It’s not enough to not be racist. White people need to be actively anti-racist, and this conversation will help you take steps to do just that.


What’s in this episode:

  • Honest conversations about race

  • How lack of opportunity and access has shaped our white supremacist society

  • Monica’s experiences with racial profiling

  • How the media has portrayed black people in a negative light, further pushing stereotypes

  • Why cancel culture doesn’t benefit true understanding of racial injustice

  • Making an effort to learn and grow, even if you make mistakes along the way

  • Why it’s important to get to know and befriend people who are diverse
