A Discussion About Race with Jojo McDuffie


It infiltrates every aspect of our lives and deserves the time for a thoughtful discussion. On this episode of The Growth Equation Podcast, Brad and Steve welcome back friend of the podcast Jojo McDuffie to discuss the topic of race. The three share their different experiences with race growing up in Michigan, Texas and Virginia. They discuss the convergence of racism and mental health and talk about the difference between sympathy (“I see your pain”) and empathy (“I feel your pain”). Steve shares what science says about our subconsciousness and systemic racism and Jojo offers why when it comes to race it’s better to be consciously biased than unbiased.
