#30: Reacting to Racism

Due to the recent events in Charlottesville, I wanted to speak out on the events that are taking place and why people aren’t speaking out against racism. This subject is so prevalent today, which is why we need to be having these open conversations about it if we ever hope to progress as a society.

Things you will learn in this episode:

  • Why people aren’t saying anything for fear of consequences
  • We aren’t even close to making the progress we should have made by now and why I think this is…
  • This is not a political conversation!
  • How I decided to step into my own fear and tell the truth

    Well well well, you went there and you knocked it out the park! I’m sure discussing race may be uncomfortable for some and it’s obvious that it’s not uncomfortable for you. Great talk on what racism is and what it’s not — IT’S NOT POLITICAL! No matter what your party affiliation – racism of any kind should outrage any decent human being and if it doesn’t you are either racist yourself or not much better. Thanks for standing up and not being silent!

    Heather, I so appreciate your honesty and candor during this podcast. I hope that others will take heed to your words and listen! The only way we can move forward in this country is to have honest conversations with an open heart. I continue to pray that we will make progress on this front!
