As a lower class white person, I really appreciate the way this episode explains the connectedness between race and class, and how white lower class individuals are called upon as a group to use to deflect from issues of race. This episode is a brilliant explanation, thank you very much.

Fantastic show... I too have grown up in a county where the majority is white so the Internet is where I learned about racism, through a good feminist site, in my teens.

Sad that the series has ended. It has given me a lot to think about and has reminded me of a lot of situations from my past. At 54 and first generation of Uk born of Jamaican parents, it has shown how far we have come, but also that the journey is still ongong. Thank you

I'm just getting into the realm of podcasts and felt a podcast about race was as good a place to start. Very informative and entertaining, even if just to jog my memory of events id forgotten. I look forwards to future episodes.
