White folks we better listen to this.

I'm 67 years old and always thought I was not a racist or privileged. In my head, the jury is out on the former but settled on the latter. Back in the '60s and 70's I thought I was a forward-thinking liberal and above any racist views and actually had fights with my 'elders' about their bigotted and prejudiced opinions and actions. I was all anti-war and anti-racist. I worked in various industries which brought me into close relationships with all sorts of people of color and never experienced, first hand, any personal issues or problems in our business or personal dealings. BUT, after listening to Charlamagne and James I realize how "asleep" I was. These two guys and the folks they asked the questions of has made me realize how bad and screwed up our systems are. I urge every white man and woman to listen to this and make their children and family members listen to this. I'm retired and have no kids, but plan to mention this Gem to everyone I know. ( I also wish I could go back in time and drop this on my 20-year-old self!) God bless Charlamagne, James, and all those contributors.

Raw, Beautiful, And Genuine Conversations

“Real change happens in the heart.” The questions presented are thought-provoking and made me dive into the minds, hearts, and lives of the ”other.” A great listen.

Excellent Project. Learned so much

First off let me say that I loved listening to this project. I could not stop listening to it once it started. So much information and inspiration to act. I’m going to get involved in local politics and ask legislators questions I have never had the balls to before because I live in a RED state and have never felt like having a voice would make any difference. Listening to this has changed the way I feel on that. Only critique on the entire project is that there we’re some inaccuracies in Dr. Claude’s interview. He is exceptionally more intelligent and educated than myself so I am going to chalk it up to a mishear on my part but he said, black people are the only people that were actual slaves, in correlation to an edict made by the Vatican in the 1480’s. Egypt had slaves, china’s Great Wall was built by slaves, the Norse people made slaves of each other and the rest of Europe. Those were all civilizations well before the 15th century. Slavery seems to have been an abominable stigma of humanity since we put value on any commodity obtained through labor. Also, it doesn’t seem to make sense to say politics as we know it was invented after capitalism in the 15th century when we have countless examples of it in Roman and Greek writings. Politicians have been abusing their power for gains since centralized government was invented.

Great Listen!!!

This book is powerful. The sincere questions asked and the fantastic responses. If you truly want to understand black culture and how we feel, this book touches on it. Be ready to feel uncomfortable at times, but open to learn and grow. BRAVO!!!!

Awesome read

I'm a black man, who is fully aware of the struggles we face in America and this book still managed to teach me a few things. It was so intriguing, I couldn't stop listening and wanted more when it ended. Great book
