BONUS – A Conscious Conversation About Race

Share This Post

Race, Conversation, Perspective, Communication,  


It is my mission to elevate the voices of people with important stories and messages they need to share in the world. When we do this, we can change and even save lives.  

In the wake of recent events, I felt it was time to have a discussion, let voices be heard, and find a way to encourage and facilitate love and compassion … while inspiring the change we need so desperately. We hope you enjoy this conversation with our amazing guests. 

We’ll explore:  

  • Why we must be honest with young people, particularly young black men, about racism. 
  • The impact that the language from the White House has had on Asian-Americans. 
  • Some of the history of the U.S. that has created systemic racism. 
  • The danger of sequestering yourself within a community of people who are just like you. 
  • How the “virus of hate” has targeted various groups in American history. 
  • The importance of having conversations to help kids and families navigate racial issues. 
  • Why white people must take responsibility to begin educating themselves and reduce the burden for people of color. 
  • Why “unconscious bias” is not always unconscious. 
  • The amazing opportunity you have to be not only a better version of yourself for humanity.
