Episode 17 and 18: Privileged and Capital Hill


Episode 17: Privileged and Systemic Racism

For most of 2020, I have deeply thought about the following questions: What does it mean to be privileged? What does racism mean today? What is Systemic Racism? How are they all connected? Some may think of the simple answers that you see in the media but I dive much deeper into these questions and not only answer them but give detailed explanation on how they are connected.


This New Year should be the year we learn to stand up instead of shut up! Hear my personal story of racism and how I dealt with it, how I SHOULD have dealt with it, and how you can learn from my personal mistakes.


Episode 18: Capital Hill Riots versus The 2020 Riots

On July 6, 2021, rioters went to Capital Hill and caused an uproar in the nation. Many politicians called for arrests, impeachments, and censorship. But what will this lead? What historical relevance can we look at that we can compare and contrast with? In this episode I discuss the situation and analyze it through a critical thinker's lens (non-partisan) and try to understand what happened, why it happened, and what outcomes can come of this.
