Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man - The Year in Review: 2020

A year recap: 2020 was an incredibly trying year, physically & mentally.
6 months ago today, I embarked on a journey to a fight one of the 2 viruses we faced in this devastating year. The virus of the mind, racism. With over 70 million views across 10 episodes, I am extremely thankful for all of you who chose to journey with me. In 2021, let’s keep changing the world, together ❤️

    We all have so many worries just as human beings things to deal with and then add on being a black person just as white people we have worries case in point I'm a white man who lives in a predominantly white neighborhood and I have insomnia and I'm reluctant to go outside and walk around my neighborhood early in the morning cuz I can't sleep how would I feel if I was a black man I probably wouldn't leave the house

    Can you have an uncomfortable conversation with Asian Americans? I think there is a lot of tension that is being stoke between Blacks-Asians in the media right now. As of today there are an increasing number of attacks on Asian elders by Black men. I think this needs to be discussed.

    Thank you for your “uncomfortable” show. While I strive to be anti-racist and I can be very outspoken, I often find it difficult to call people out in a way that helps to open their minds and hearts rather than making them feel defensive. I really loved you reading the comment of the 73 year old man who acknowledged his awakening and asked for you not to give up on people like him. I’m hopeful the country is waking up, but it only continues with the type of conversations that you are having. I look forward to more of your shows.

    I am white and I support equality 100%, and see the struggles that the black community goes through. I support the overall message of BLM and, whilst I do not support violence, I understand it in some circumstances. However, I do have one question about BLM: How can you justify violent protests when they end up negatively affecting black people? Why is it okay to say to a black business owner "hey, you matter so much to us that we are going to vandalise your property and destroy your life's work"? I am genuinely open to hearing an answer to this, I just haven't been able to find one so far.

    I have an idea to help you stop whining about race. Why don't you start creating your own game shows, sports leagues, education system etc etc, instead of attaching yourself to White americans sheit. The reason you hang around White creations is because you're not capable of creating your own.

    I never realized how deeply ingrained racism was within society until the past few years. I think my generation was almost gaslit into seeing it as a nonexistent nonissue of the past in order to uphold the white status quo. Your videos are so beyond important. Something that has weighed on my heart especially as I lost my first child in 2018, is the disparity between black and white maternal and neonatal death rates. Black women die due to pregnancy and childbirth related reasons more than 2.5 times the rate of white women! And black infants die at over twice the rate of white infants. This is incredibly upsetting. It shouldn't have taken experiencing medical negligence and the loss of my own full term child to care about this, but before then I was never exposed to a community (bereaved parents) that talked about it. Child loss has always been taboo, as well as maternal death, which isolates the grievers unjustly. I can only imagine how terrifying it is to go through pregnancy and childbirth as a black woman. I would love to see you interview health care providers, specifically OBGYN's as well on why black women (and men) are still not heard when it comes to symptoms, pain, etc. The statistics aren't natural they're systemic and I really wish these people would be held accountable for allowing their prejudice to cost lives.

    I'm sorry, but these "conversations" don't amount to anything more than trying to make everyone who's not black feel guilty for not being black. I guess I'm supposed to feel guilty about being white, but I don't. Scientifically, it's really just the luck of the sperm draw, just like anyone born into royalty, etc. - all just luck. I'm offended that just because I'm white, I must automatically be a racist. I definitely have priveleges that many others don't have, and I'm not going to apologize for that - I had nothing to do with it. And I'm just sick of being preached at, for something I'm not!!!

    What a clown! This society is so racist and oppressive to black people that a black person like you could find so much success and recognition despite your professional victimhood mentality. It's people like you that is fueling the divisiveness in this country on the question of race. Pointing out racism where there isn't any. What about Asian Americans? What about recent immigrants from Africa? Why are they not being pushed down by the racist boot? B/c they work hard rather than complaining about being victimized...

    I don't like the politics that are inserted into the causes.

I hope these great movements can detach themselves from the mostly elite who want to highjack them, otherwise people like me who may just have a perception issue, maybe not, will be divided.

And how does Emmanuel repay the favor? By making false and racist accusations against people who have done him no wrong whatsoever. It's sickening.

    Did it ever occur to you that hispanics much like many other non-black people don't dislike black people for their skin color, but for their BEHAVIORS? Seems like black people CONSTANTLY mistake people criticising their bad and violent behaviors for racism because then they don't have to answer for those bad behaviors.

    As a middle-aged man, can I please ask that we define some terms: for example; ,"cancel culture ", I am not asking to be ignorant rather to educate myself on what others need from me. I wish to provide a safe environment for the multitude of cultures that exist, and having the right knowledge would help me better to practice empathy into another's view instead of deflecting because I lack the insight. A war was started before I was born, but it doesn't mean I have to pick a side or arm myself, rather I would like to fight on any side that has been denied the right of equality. I lived my life by a quote I made for myself, " I fear the things I create and I create the things I fear." This has allowed me to be awake but I am still hungry for truth, knowledge, wisdom, most important understanding. I thank God, your parents, teachers, your hero's for building the man I see in front of me.

I would like to see a die hard racist, or someone who believes racism doesn't exist on this show and you having a legit uncomfortable conversation. It seems like everyone on this channel you talk to agrees with you in most things.

    Hey Acho, I have a question to ask, as a black person in America what was it like when you first heard about slavery, how old were you, did you learn about it in school or from your parents, what did you think of white classmates when you were told, were you sad or angry or confused. How would you tell your kids about slavery one day? I would like to hear your take on this because as a white person the only thing I thought was that people in the past did horrible things but I'm not like that and its over now. I was only 10 and read about it in books about the civil war. The only time I heard about it in school was when I moved to Georgia and was told the civil war was fought over many issues slavery just being one of those issues... I knew my teacher was wrong but wanted to pass her test.

Media today, all too often, is a buffet of comforts and is served in a way where we can consume as much as we can stomach. This nation needs to be forced to exercise and in doing so strengthen their awareness about who they share this great nation with and how to interact. We can all learn something working out this way.

    Hello Emmanuel, I just saw your interracial episode and appreciated the content. I would love to have a candid conversation with you regarding how black people view Multi -ethinic people because I can testify as a multi-ethnic woman (African American, Okinawan, Japanese & European descent) I get asked this question "What are you?" From majority (100%) black men. Instead of breaking out a pie chart, I'd love to respond with the following: "I'm a child of God or perhaps, I'm a product of a dream realized, as a matter of fact, I'm whatever you need me to be so that you can feel comfortable because I'm fine with not fitting into boxes checked by all my ancestors...." How do you think that response would go? Another question for you is why is Barack Obama the first black President when he should be the first Biracial President or Kamala Harris the First Black Woman VP last I checked she was part Jamaican and Indian? Why do black people claim mixed people only when they're successful? I'd love to have an honest conversation because racism exists on all sides, stereotypes and biased behavior are innate to our human condition. Perhaps being multiethnic is the new minority because we don't fit into a mold anyone can control. Much like God whom I don't claim to be, I just know diversity exists in infinite combinations and we are all made in his image. Where most people see division I see unity because being human is the common denominator and a slave is a master in disguise. I'd love to hear your thoughts and discuss the 'elephant in the room', perhaps things are not Black or White but shades of red because war isn't only fought on the battlefield, but everyday with the use of words and we should choose our weapons wisely. I look forward to your candor and many more uncomfortable conversations to come. Peace be with you.

    Dear Emmanuel, Thank you so much for speaking to me in my home in Googong New South Wales in Australia, and making my jaw hit the ground with astonishment time and time again. I watched your first episode like a child watching a Disney movie, somehow i went from sitting on my armchair to sitting on the footstool to sitting on the floor in front of the Tv with tears pouring down my face. It was an historical moment for me, and one i will cherish for ever. I am 57, i am learning more and more and realising that my big mouth that got me into so much trouble through the years is actually the ANTI mouth! I have pulled people up when they made jokes, i have pulled my family up when they called people names and yes i have have had to leave parties quite quickly on more than one occasion after trying to stop people being ok with behaving badly, and allowing others to behave that way around them. Bad things happen when good people do nothing has always been my rule, and as boring as my daughter and her friends thought my lectures were, i have heard them be ANTI as well. Now, I have a question for you! Your first show made my jaw drop, the fact that you are THIRTY made my jaw drop twice as hard and twice as far!! Where does your wisdom come from? What did your parents teach you to make you decide that this was going to be your path in life? Could we meet the amazing people who made you? I know men of 30 who still can't find their head with their hat and yet here you are, making people like me sit on the floor a nose away from the tv screen crying and thanking God for you and your words. You are a true blessing to millions and once again, i thank you.

    As a white woman, I can tell you WP is real. I have it, I've seen it, I've lived it. And I've witnessed it with my own eyes when I was rolling deep and not being a good teen, I was told to go home, I don't belong in the hood.

    @Brian Oconnell Well, our current society has been going out of their way to brainwash people with such notions. And doing a pretty successful job of it, it seems.

    @Bastian The delusion of White Privilege. The poor dear has been brainwashed. She's never experienced any such privilege in her life, but racists have told her she has and she's bought into it.

    i've discovered this channel recently so i haven't watched all videos yet, but i have an idea for an uncomfortable conversation. i'm an arab-italian living in italy with 100% white features so i can't possibly understand the struggle of black people, but i think it would be so interesting for you to have a conversation with an european black person, mainly to see the different experiences black people have living somewhere that is not America. I know for a fact that there is racism here too, but i don't think (i could be wrong, hence a conversation would be super interesting) it's as violent towards black people as it is in america. And i'm saying "not as violent" because for example here common people don't have access to weapons as easily as people have in America, so basic "misunderstandings" like a cop thinking a black person is holding a gun is something that just doesn't happen here. (that kind of mixes the concept of gun control with it too, but yeah it was just an example!) Hope you read this comment, i love your videos! edit: it could be a zoom type of conversation, since we''re still all social distancing!

    I want to thank you. These episodes have opened my eyes. I am white, but have never thought of myself as racist. I had no idea what was meant by white privilege. I was awoken this year to a new way of looking at the world. I only have one real problem that I face now. How do I continue to love someone who refuses to educate themselves? My husband who I never thought of as a racist either (I never would have Married him if I had) will not even watch 30 seconds of any videos, movies, or blogs on anything that has happened this last year to educate himself. I am worried I just wasted 23 years of my life.

    I could be mistaken, but from what I understand, in a short time, you have been convinced into thinking your skin color automatically makes you complicit in a system of oppression. That it makes you part of a societal problem. Your husband feels offended by these ideas for reasons of his own, and prefers not having to expose himself to them. And now 23 years of presumably happy marriage suddenly mean nothing because he will not 'educate himself', or in other words, copy your radically altered mindset. It even makes him suspicious of being a racist. Don't you think that sounds at least a little bit creepy?

    I love your channel and really respect your opinion. Andddd maybe you could react or tell me what you think or the video “What Exactly are White People Surperior At? By Cut. I searched up the video because it was in a cringe compilation from another ALther and I guess I was kind of shocked and uneasy after watching it. I don’t need to be told what to think, but I really would love you opinion. Thank you so much.
