Jessica and Kyler review what they learned from their discussions on race in the US. They conclude that the more people leave themselves open to uncomfortable moments the more progress our culture could find when it comes to bias and discrimination. This most likely won’t be the last time this topic comes up on the pod and that’s perhaps a good thing. Hopefully, the news will continue to push us to have more conversations about race/ethnicity and what it means to be a citizen of the United States.
Kyler sits down with Luis and Samantha Escobedo to talk about their experience as a mixed-race married couple. Luis was born in Mexico and came to Colorado with his family at eight years old. Sam was born and raised in southern Colorado. They explain how their cultural differences have informed them as adults and what they teach their children.
