As a former Angeleno I am grateful to hear first hand account of the real story of the LAPD and the calculating faux progressive politician that is Eric Garcetti. Kills me he is spinning it for political benefit when he only cut the LAPD to just less than 50% of the city budget after raising it by 7%. Even on climate he wants constituents to organize a parade for him to lead before he does anything. He's a self interested coward with the biggest protests in the country outside DC, no more.

This podcast is highly misinformed and perpetuates racism.

Cuomo is the governor not the Mayor. Bill de Blasio is Mayor. that doesn't change the point, just wanted to point that out.

i have to disagree with this "locs/dread locs" is cultural appropriation. 🤨 white ppl can, and historically have had (i.e. Vikings & pagans) locs. i am a black woman, with locs; & if u ask a Rasta (who should be the only authority...) they'd say it's all good. ja loves all.

1. I'm white so I recognize that my opinion on this is completely irrelevant. 2. If you have to ask if you're allowed to say the N-word, the answer is probably NO. 3. But if you're a POC I'm not gonna blink. 4. And if you're white I'm gonna say something because you're most likely a racist piece of shit who absolutely does not need to be in my orbit.

Identity is hard. My husband grew up in Small Town USA, deep in the cornfields of America, so lots of folks around here assume he's like them: gun-toting, racist, right-wing, redneck. And, like, he's not. He's a Democratic Socialist, a staunch Feminist, an ally to the LGBTQ community, and extremely anti-racist. But when he walks into the local grocery, people in line start talking about "those people" -- either the poor people who live up the hill on the "other" side of town, or the brown people in the town just south of ours, or "them dirty illegals" at the border, or "the queers"... and these are our neighbors, our coworkers, our security guards, our mechanics, our local businesses... Needless to say, we don't spend much time with the people where we live -- our friends are more suburban than rural -- but it gets tiresome and can even be dangerous correcting the people next to you on a daily basis. My daughter came home from school one day and told us about the kids running through the halls of the junior high shouting, "Build the wall!" She's half-Ecuadorian in an all-white school so this was a somewhat scary experience for her, even tho she "passes" for White. We don't always get to choose who takes up our space. Me and my husband's White Privilege allow us to stay quiet. My daughter's heritage forces her to stay quiet. We vote Blue Ticket but can't put up yard signs or bumper stickers. This is all a long winded way of saying I empathize with the caller who needs to get new friends. While it's worth the effort, it certainly isn't as easy as all that.

My parents occasionally make vague racist comments in jest, but they do not believe they are racist (full disclosure, they are Southern Baptist, gun-toting, Tea Party, Trump supporters eager for The Wall, and I'm so sorry about all of it). I actually started crying when one of you suggested that if your parents won't change their behavior around you (because YES, of course I've asked them to stop saying racist things), then they must not respect you very much. I'm 42. My parents have never, and will never, see me as their equal or treat me with the respect owed to any adult. So my problem goes deeper than just "Is this racist*?" (asterisk for All The Things). My question, on a personal level, is basically "Why don't you love me enough?" --- And of course that question answers the first one, because if they don't even respect or love their own kids, why the fuck should or would they respect anyone else outside their privileged, White, zealously religious bubble? So anyway, thanks for covering this topic. Not sure I walked away feeling better, but I do feel a bit less lonely and sad. First time listener, definitely subscribed.
