Racism and Genuine Allyship

On today’s episode of the Diverse Minds podcast, I’m going to be talking about racism and genuine allyship.

This week’s episode was meant to be about my new online course the Mentally Healthy Professional, however, with what’s been happening this week and quite frankly for the past 400+ years, I felt the need to speak about my own experience of racism. Including the faces of racism and why we all need to and can take action for Black communities to really show that Black Lives Matter. It is about shifting systems in order to do that.

Quotes

  • We all have to continue to push for systems to shift in order for there to be genuine change. 
  • That’s not to say that I think all police are terrible. I’ve worked with some brilliant police officers over the years. 
  • Just because I’m Asian, that does not mean I understand every element of the Black experience. However, I have always tried to educate myself and understand what it’s like from all the different perspectives from global majority cultures.
  • I don’t for a minute think that I understand everything there is to about racism and genuine allyship. 
  • Conversations about race can be difficult to have because we don’t have them enough, therefore it’s more comfortable to think we live in a post-racial world.
