Thank you for launching this pilot season.  As I continue my own personal journey towards understanding racism I have appreciated those who challenged me to frame racism (particularly in the US) as a white problem.  Since watching the documentary "I Am Not Your Negro", I have been consuming much of James Baldwin work that often asked the white person to examine what the consequences are in his own psyche of adopting white supremacy as a way of thinking.  I'd love to see an episode (or 2, 3, 4) that pushes on the consequences of whiteness for the white person so as to better understand what it means to participate in collective liberation in the struggle of race in America today.  Thank you again for offering us easy on ramps to racial literacy.
