So, you’re at a family dinner, or happy hour with colleagues and the conversation suddenly shifts towards race relations and racism in general. You’re there, trying to explain the realities faced by most people of color you know, even yourself.
No one hears you. You know that your emotions are starting to run and that you’ll inevitably act based on either two scenarios:
- Withdraw, completely, totally
Both are negative reactions. I have a helper, this video. Just yank your phone out of your pocket, show it to your audience and then discuss. I believe it will help open up opportunities for dialogue.
It’s needed, bigly.
