Welcome to episode 59! 

Today's episode is a discussion about race with my new friend Bridgett Mack.  

I learned about Bridgett after watching her viral Facebook video called, "You'll Never Guess What My White Neighbor Just Came And Said To ME!!!" 

"The title," she says, "was satirical--- picking on "click-baity" headlines" to which we've all become accustomed.  Bridgett (a black woman) really does have a white neighbor who really did approach her on that day (days after George Floyd had been killed). But what the white neighbor told her was wonderful and kind as opposed to rude and ruthless, as the title may have led us to believe. 

In the video, she offered a perspective about racism in America. It was nuanced and thoughtful. Her words, tone, and passion were all very honest, and I felt compelled to ask her if she would be on the podcast to discuss the topic in more detail.

Happily, she agreed. I hope you'll enjoy!
