S4E2: This is What Happens When You Center Hate

So many times since we started this podcast, we have been here discussing mass shootings and how we can really affect change. Here we are again. Today in the wake of the Buffalo grocery store shooting, we sit down and talk about the ongoing gun violence in the US and how centering hate is at the heart. This isn’t about politics or political parties, but the situations at hand. Let’s dig in.

Listen now:

We’re exploring:

How not addressing the issue of inequity in our country has made a terrifying situation our norm
The difference between uncomfortable and unsafe, and why it is so important to have uncomfortable conversations
Why it is critical that we see people as they are and appreciate our differences in order to fight the system
How white supremacy culture wins by keeping people controlled via fear
The message we send when society centers and amplifies a marginal hate perspective
What the poverty mindset is and how it normalizes ignorance, hate and survival
How standing on ideology dehumanizing us
Our hope for our listeners to find spaces to come together and heal
