289: Racism in America with Draze

These are troubling times, and we wanted to take a moment to talk about it. On this special episode, we’re joined by Seattle rapper, musician, and social activist Draze to take part in a painfully honest discussion about race in The United States of America.

Topics include: Draze’s music and creative process, racism is obvious on the right but is also prevalent on the left, identifying and unraveling white supremacy, #blacklivesmatter, the criminal justice system, rejecting the post-racial society, the unique impacts of gentrification on African American communities, cultural appropriation in hop-hop, and the sacrifices we all must make to fight systemic racism.
