Episode 7: “It’s Not About Race” with TK Coleman

Is police abuse and misconduct a result of racism, or other institutional problems?  Does absence of minority characters on movies and TV reflect consumer preferences, or racist producers?  Does praising rags-to-riches stories imply blaming the down-and-out for their own suffering?  Should some people just keep quiet on the topic of race?  Do we talk too much or too little about it?  Is being ‘color blind’ a good thing?

TK Coleman joins me to discuss these and many other related issues on this episode of the podcast.  If you’re like me, you tend to shy away from conversations about race because it’s such a loaded subject, but this was a very enjoyable and enlightening conversation.
