#29 | Conversations With Myself, A White Man | Luke

This past week I've been more angry than I can remember. With everything going on regarding Black Lives Matter, it was an emotionally exhausting week. But I must remember that, as a white man, four days of anger is nothing compared to those in my life that have felt this anger their entire lives. This episode is a reflection on the past week, what's been going through my mind, how we can continue the conversation, this podcast's role in that conversation and more. It's also a conversation about how white men need to be allies, how I've worked in my life to fix racist thoughts when I have them, and why it's not okay for white people to tell black people how to protest.

Here are links that you can use to donate to the cause or sign petitions, depending on what you think is most important. We will get back to the "usual" programming next week, but I felt this was an important conversation to have with myself and my audience and how I can be better moving forward. Thanks for listening!
