Don’t be Racist: Celebrate the Wins, But Keep Fighting

November 13, 2020

This is episode 55 of the podcast and the seventh and final episode of the 'Don’t Be Racist Series.' Think of it as the recap episode. I’ll be reviewing all of the anti-racism lessons learned over the last several weeks, and I’ll be reviewing the momentous presidential election that just happened as well. And at the end of the episode, I’ll be giving you some final words of advice to take with you as you continue your journey to be committed anti-racism warriors. 

I hope you remember those simple lessons as you go about your daily life, and if you do,  I guarantee your journey to being an anti-racism warrior will be a successful and satisfying one. I won’t say it’s going to be easy, but I also don’t want you to think it has to be hard. Quite frankly, I think it’s a lot harder to be a racist than it is to be an anti-racist.  Harder, lonelier, and far less sweet.

I believe in you anti-racism warriors. Thank you for listening! Thank you for showing up for this series! Thank you for doing the work.
