Have you ever had a conversation with someone and came away thinking, if the world had more thinkers such as this, the world would be a much calmer and better place for everyone? The deep thinker I’m talking about is Angel Eduardo and I’m grateful this week for having the opportunity to speak with Angel on the Derate the Hate podcast.
I recently read a piece by Angel published in Newsweek, “Stop calling me “white” for having the wrong opinions”, which stood out to me as something that seems to happen with much greater frequency these days. It seems if people of color don’t have the “correct” ideas or opinions, they are said to be “acting white” or called “white” as a pejorative. This is not only a disgusting form of racism and bullying, but it’s a nonsensical attempt by some to keep us divided. Angel has more than a little to say about this so you’re not going to want to miss this conversation!
