Changing the ‘Pale, Stale, and Male’ Culture w/ @yovimi of @TheTaskForce — #KatieSpeakShow Ep145 9/01/2018

In brief: Every time I interview (or even just chat with) Victoria Rodríguez-Roldán she says something I take with me that well past the topic at hand. This time is was the phrase “pale, stale, and male.” Moving away from the white, old men of extreme privilege — philosophically and literally/physically — in our organizing and political spaces is the only way we’re going to save our lives.

We talk about the Supreme Court (yes, again, because it’s that important); why the push to include sexual orientation on the census matters; and the new/increasing dangers of interacting with the carceral state for transgender people, the mentally ill, and the disabled.

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!
