In this talk, writer and activist Alix Jules discusses Race and Racism in America, including racial tones in culture, religion, and their effect on US politics. He reviews some of the current stats and prevailing theories that continue to shape racial dynamics, while examining the concept of privilege in the Era of Trump. The writer also takes a candid, but humorous look at why even Humanists struggle with finding proper footing when discussing these topics. In addition he’ll also discuss the backlash against PC culture and why words like “diversity” became a pejorative.
