Thank you again for answering one of my questions.
I figured it was the concept of negro that was made up, much like the concept of many slang terms we use day in and day out.
Miguel the quotes you read from “white trash” were extremely eye opening and I glimpsed how racism as a whole bashed it’s way into our lives.
Dr. Smith I never knew that fact about the Spanish and Portuguese as regarding the beginning of modern slavery.
You guys, both of you, produce such an amazing podcast. To be honest I started listening to Rational Faiths for the Ask a Sex Therapist podcast and just slogged my way through Racism 101. Now though, I eagerly await for each Racism 101 as much as the other 2 podcast that are produced. Don’t get me wrong, some of the facts, info, etc… on the racism podcast can be quite uncomfortable but it’s more like a small annoyance you’ve lived with and gotten used to but your Racism 101 is like ibuprofen it helps me realize I wasn’t comfortable I was just used to being uncomfortable.
Major props to you guys.
