          I can't talk about race because, I know how you got there and how I got here. And the truth, is I was not working as hard , as I let you to believe, I got most of my stuff from being privilege! How did you get there? long story, you got noting because you are not privilege, your ancestors were force to work hard with no compensation and you were brought and sold like merchandise, so that our generation today can have lots of ill-gotten wealth. I will not talk about it, because, if I talk about it you might not see me as supreme; You might ever start seeing me for what I really am! ...........................................none human.

            HONESTY - not part of US culture, for sure!

                  Same thing with GB & their history of colonialism. They need to be able to speak about it more “openly” as well & stop being uncomfortable with such conversations

                    As hard as it is to talk about racism, how much harder is it for people to address sexism. America needs truth and reconciliation on both topics. The pointless defensiveness blocks progress on both fronts, which is particularly painful for women and girls of color.

                      I love listening to him talk. We do need to openly communicate more about these issues. Maybe have everyone take mandatory classes on African American and Native American history to better educate why things are the way they are today. For example, I hate hearing some ignorant person say that black people need to get their lives together and that it’s not hard when there’s a whole explanation on why it actually is hard if you look at our history.

                        The US is still a very racist place. And I think a teeny tiny part of it, is that *some* people act as if the current generation is somehow still responsible for what happened in the past. I've seen people argue that other people's ancestors blood, is on the living generation's hands, which is mental. I'm happy I don't live in a country where the people are so divided!

                          He’s accurate when comes to the chicken. I ordered quarter chicken when I was in America and just stared at it in confusion cause it was as big as some of the full chickens back here in South Africa. Ended eat French fries for the rest of the trip😂😂

                                  perhaps the minds still own the thing, hence the reaction of not being comfortable others talking about it.

                                        Trevor has to be the only South African who didn't know what buffalo wings are. We've had buffalo wings on our menus since forever. Have you never been to Spur Trev? Plus, Spur is not the only restaurant with Buffalo wings. Ke maketse ka daai comment stru.

                                            As a white American, I don't think it matters whether I was "there" or not. I don't believe in making non-choices because I didn't specifically take part in the creation of problems. If we do not make the CHOICE to make the world a better place in the ways we can, we are CHOOSING to let the mistakes of those before us stand unchecked. Talking about how we got here is the first step to figuring out solutions.

                                              I think that french white people are some of the worst when it comes to admitting the existence of racism as well as their neo-colonialism strategy in Africa. They will pretty much imply that racism doesn't exist in France because there are so many interracial couples and France is improving the state of Africa. Ridiculous !!!

                                                            Exactly some white people will take it personal when you bring up slavery and its like we're not saying you were part of it we're saying it's a problem of the past we need to discuss and have open conversations about it because that's how issues get solved not by dismissing it because you feel guilty about it. its not gonna make the problems go away but at least its a start

They’re massive heaps of meat that grow like weeds and are somehow less intelligent than the average dandelion. They basically spend their short lives converting feed to meat and turds. If any creature would be content to live in a box with food, water, poop removal, and fresh air, it would be them. Unfortunately, our factory farms fail at those last two, and a days worth of meat bird shit in an open air pen with plenty of room to move burns your eyes (I used to raise them for fair). I can’t imagine how awful a factory farm must be.🤢
