And we're back. Sorry for the delay. This is my response to Cenk's last video in which he explained that calling something "racist" is a bad strategy for having an actual conversation. We should say it's "questionable" and ask "can you see how this might be racist?" instead. He also agrees with me that people of color have carried most of the burden of racial dialogue and fights for justice, but says that's the way it is, and that the target audience for this dialogue needs to be the majority of white people who don't think they're racist. I disagree. Check it out.
