Why White People Should Care:
History, Science + Current Events
It’s important to have conversations regarding race, gender, minorities, etc. Unless we as a society choose to acknowledge these uncomfortable but prominent issues, they will never just resolve on their own. It’s easy to blow these things off or to feel powerless, but at the core, all of these issues start with people deciding to make a difference.
The issues with race, sexism, and overall inequality are still very prominent in today’s current politics, and society as a whole. While it may not be the most comfortable issue to address, Sarah and Misasha discuss the importance of acknowledging and combatting these injustices.
