Mild spoiler alert.  If you haven't studied history, this new history lesson will be eye opening.  It will help you understand the racial divide better and help you confront the truth that you were not taught in schools about racism.  We talk about the book, but we also talk about the current situation and what needs to be done.  I know this book may be a tedious read, but I do believe it is should be required reading.  As always when an episode gets too long, I have split it in two parts.  This is part two.
