Wrap up on Race -SMSL022



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.
