Understanding the Other Side and Fighting Back
This has been a horrible week in headlines. We were heartbroken by the events in Virginia, the state we grew up in. It's not always the obvious people, wearing certain types of arm bands or waving torches, that express radical views and use violence as a tool. Sometimes it's the well-spoken, well-educated person sitting next to you who holds bigoted opinions and wants to mainstream them. To understand what we are up against, watch and listen to the Uncomfortable podcast from ABC News. This particular episode is jarring, informative and should galvanize you into action.
Get involved in your community. Hold leaders accountable and do not allow these individuals and groups to take hold. We are an inclusive and democratic nation. Radical views, of any kind, have no home in America, nor in modern society anywhere in the world. You have a voice. Use it.
Watch and listen to Uncomfortable here. New episodes of “Uncomfortable” are up every other Tuesday on iTunes, Stitcher, Google Play Music, ABCNewsPodcasts.com and the ABC News apps. Video of each episode will be available for streaming on ABCNews.com/Live the same day. Use the #UncomfortableTalk on Twitter to be part of the conversation.
