Last week, I had a virtual meeting with Bill Treasurer of #giantleapconsulting. We had a “Dialogue on Race (between two friends)” in which Bill asked me a series of questions that might be considered racist or microaggressive, and I did my best to give MY perspective. Check out the Q&A from our race conversation here on X-Factor Solutions’ new YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCJm69SdmrxBGU7l0JNj7YRg/playlists
Bill’s questions, while tough, were necessary for shedding light on the real and often uncomfortable truths about race relations. My responses were candid, reflecting personal views shaped by a lifetime of experiences as an African American male in the United States. This discussion wasn’t just about sharing viewpoints; it was about challenging preconceptions, educating, and most importantly, opening doors to positive dialogue and understanding.
We touched upon the diversity within the black community, how societal and economic factors shape perspectives, and the importance of individual experiences in understanding racial dynamics. The conversation explored the misconceptions surrounding welfare and government assistance, emphasizing that these issues are not race-based but relate to broader socio-economic challenges.
Our dialogue is a step towards breaking down barriers and fostering a deeper understanding of racial issues. I invite you to watch the series of videos on X-Factor Solutions’ new YouTube channel and join us in this critical conversation. Your engagement and perspectives are valuable as we continue to learn and grow together.
