“We Must Be Anti-Racist” w/ @JennMJack — #KatieSpeakShow Ep122 2/10/2018

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!

Note: This show is available to stream and download for free so it can be accessible for everyone. If you’re able, consider becoming a supporter for as little as $1/month at PATREON or making a one-time donation at PAYPAL.me/KatieSpeak. Thank you!
