In brief: “In a racist society, it is not enough to be non-racist—we must be anti-racist.” — Angela Davis, 1979
Jenn Jackson is back on the show to differentiate between “non-racist” and “anti-racist” in her call for white folx to get active in the effort to dismantle white supremacy. She breaks down specific ways individuals can do the work. We also talk about the “American Dream” and who benefits from the perpetuation of the meritocracy myth, the white washing of Martin Luther King, Jr’s radical notions, and more!
