… Drops Mic

This week’s guest is my dear friend Rachel Stein!RACHEL

This episode with Rachel is older than the last (recorded 5.11.18), but I have to share it, today, because a) it’s a great conversation and represents what this show does well. And b) it delves deeper into my point of view, specifically around motherhood. Today, as too many of my fellow moms are fighting for their children at our southern border, I share this discussion in solidarity con la lucha, y la responsibilidad de criar a la generación próxima.

This episode is definitive.

It defines my thought leadership on race and humanity, and it sets the stage of where I see our progress laying in wait … that is towards the feminine, towards its power, and away from whiteness as a concept. This last point is a new and unknown reality, to be determined.

It gets a bit *heady* at times. I was interviewing a phD, so I brought my A-student game. But we still center ourselves in the culture. Key references include:

“This is America” by Donald Glover

Dana caspersen, conflict specialist

Lions: Spy in the Den

New Academy Members
Academy Invites Record 928 New Members

the GOAT, James Baldwin

Eminem on Donald Trump

13th by Ava DuVernay

The Wisdom of Crowds, by James Surowiecki

Special thanks to the powerful Queen, Rachel Stein for going there with me as we came for the whiteness with which she was raised, without reservation.

*Special note: Please let it be known, the correct pronunciation is *BEE*-chella. The “Bae” pronunciation of Beyonce is just a total academic overwrite of the appropriate phonetics. Her name is pronounced BEE-yonce, not bae-yonce.  It is not the BAE-Hive, so neither is it BAE-chella. I’m talking to you too Jenna Wortham, not just my invited, beloved podcast guest.

Much, much love.
