Emmanuel Acho sits down to have an “uncomfortable conversation” with white America, in order to educate and inform on racism, system racism, social injustice, rioting & the hurt African Americans are feeling today.

    I really like his analogy of biking and trying to pass a person with headphones on to how white people aren't hearing/understanding the problem that people of color are experiencing.

    Good stuff but I don’t agree with the oppression stuff. We have come so far in America. Although it wasn’t a fair race Black people have been able to rise as far as to the Presidency. And I feel that liberal laws are what’s keeping many Blacks in the victim mentality...welfare system, handouts. This is the systemic racism part but Blacks relate more with the laws that oppress them because they vote for their oppressor.

    I am a white man that works in Nigeria and Kenya. I have been commuting from the USA to Africa since 2012. Prior to that I commuted from Dubai since 2007. Mr. Acho, I believe we can both agree that your home life and family environs has created a solid foundation for you as a man. I don't believe we will ever find a trace of "ghetto"influence in an immigrant African family. BTW: I am very comfortable with having conversations with black men. All of my partners in business are black. Take care and keep up the valiant efforts.

    I am bothered by the biking analogy. Please tell me you did not run into the jogger because she didn’t hear you. Because if you did that is all kinds of wrong. Just like it’s wrong for Rioters to damage and steel property because we (y’all white people) didn’t hear them.

If they did see color, they just might see the advantages that often comes with it... 🤔

    That bike analogy is problematic. A person on a bike could easily hit the brakes from 10 meters away. Racist, and even those who are for racial progress yet promote racist ideas have always told Blacks to slow down and accept their lower social position. Equality is more like a train with no brakes. If you stand in it's way your body may slow it down and your blood may cause the wheels to slip but it's momentum will still carry it forward.

    Excellent Emmanuel - thank you for putting this out there! Hopefully the world will tune in and truly 'hear' all that's been said here with an open heart and mind and start acting on what they hear in a positive way that makes the collisions non-existent as a result. Everything said was spot on IMO. I wish people could hear 'Future Love Paradise' by Seal - it should be the world mantra until we only collide in love and understanding and respect for each other's humanity and dignity. Please keep these conversations going! Thank you so much for your bravery and being so straightforward

    Emmanuel, thank you for this educational video. I do want to mention, as an Asian-American, that you mentioned Blacks / Whites / even Hispanics, but no mention of Asians. I know Black / White relations is your main topic, but you threw in Hispanics. I hope you are ok with me sharing something I feel is pervasively an unconscious bias in this country - that Asian-Americans are not even viewed as Americans. As if Whites/Blacks/Hispanics are top tier Americans. Everyone else is 2nd tier. As you mentioned that you wanted to educate yourself, I hope you understand what I am trying to get at.

    Very inpressive and beautifully presented. Please let us know how to help or fellow Floridians who are looking at Gov. Ron DeSantis as a potential national leader. He is planning to rewrite the school curriculum b/c he rejects CRT (Critical Race Theory) as "unsanctioned narratives" b/c it will "make kids hate each other". How do we help DeSantis understand everybody needs to learn history so we don't make the same mistakes the previous generations have been "hard-wired" to accept??

    This is the first I've seen of this. Sharing it! There are so many things I've learned about systemic racism. One is about the racist and LEGAL property laws of the 40's and 50's and how the, again legal, robbing black communities of property wealth and generational wealth has heavily contributed to the ongoing oppression of black people. The more I learn the more horrified I am at how far we have NOT come! But I try to remain hopeful.

    Hearing about the rioting in Minneapolis, while I'll never condone looting as parts of protests by minorities against injustices (especially as the majority of these are done by white anarchists). listening to Emmanuel Acho explain what's driving some minorities to riot does put things in perspective and is helpful. However, while understandable, this is still unjustifiable. In Acho's bicycle example, if I'm him, I anticipate that the other bicyclist may not hear or ignore me, and formulate a worst-case scenario Plan B to execute appropriate steps to avoid a crash; same way as I don't expect to know every action of the driver in front of me while driving my car, and always leave room for an unexpected action from other drivers. Violence is an emotional, deperate response....but emotional, desperate responses, over logical, calm ones, always make things even worse. Of course we should expect people, bike riders, drivers, etc to be respectful and communicable, but in life, you will have some people who are not, and assuming everyone is will one day result in a crash, caused by naivity....

    @Tessa Thurman I appreciate your response. But I think we have missed each other's points a little. I am not advocating for white people to use the racial slur of the N word (with either the A or ER ending). I am simply speaking to the problems I have with his video. Even though I do have multiple things that I think are hypocritical about this video the use of the N word really got me when he said they turned it into a word of endearment! That was where my original comment came from. There are many examples (culturally) where black people are using this word as a salute to friends, etc. But there are also just as many examples of its use by black people to be derogatory or show weakness/inferiority etc.( just listen to the latest hip-hop songs or go listen to a game basketball at the park) For me it goes back to the old "its okay for me but not okay for you" mantra. I believe he had an opportunity in this video to say that using racial slurs shows "ignorance" by all who speak them, but he instead said its offensive coming from white people, but its welcomed coming from blacks. In a world where we are all looking for "equal" footing, hypocrisy is going to be the straw that continues to break the camels back. As long as we have double standards and hypocritical racism (where its not racist for me, but its racist for you mentalities) we will continue to see racism survive and thrive instead of becoming a thing of the past. Sorry that was so long, but thanks for commenting with me.

    @nathan rains No Sir. Clearly you are poised to respond emotionally without reading. Not all, but some black people use the word. They use the N-ah word, not the N-er word. There is a difference. The question you should ask yourself is, "WHY would any white person WANT to use it?" This is the question. We can ponder all day why any black person would want to use the word. We'll never agree as to why some do. But WHY on God's green earth would a white person argue to use it. That is the confusion. You don't think anyone should use the word, great. Neither do I. So you and I both will stay in our own lanes and not use it.

  • InGoodFaithLogic

    The race example is definitely a good way to explain the problem, which is difficult to argue if you are in the right mind. But it is a very complex issue, and one of the problems that play a small part is that a relatively small portion of the white population came from different backgrounds who are white but even arguably were oppressed in the past too. So the argument 'you used us for 200 years, and now pay up to help us catch up' (which I agree with), puts white people that are different historically and ideologically in a situation where "YOU WHITE, YOU PAY" kind of bucket. It becomes overwhelming to hear from every corner that if you are white you are at fault. I think the way the problem is presented, will create a problem in the future. EVERY KID should be educated on the history, ALL HISTORY. And grand, grandchildren of slave owners, SHOULD BE TOUGH their own history. With whole honesty, when I hear from someone, doesn't matter black or white that "I am white, privileged and own someone something" my answer "FU, I have peasants in my family history, so let's see who owns who". These are my thoughts on the problem, based on my life experiences. It is not meant to insult anyone, but rather continue the conversation. If anyone wants to continue the CIVIL conversation, please comment.

    Try Changing the conversation on white privilege. First, privilege is something that can be given and taken away. A different definition of white privilege is that “white” people are being used. Think about who is giving the privilege and see that they are slowly taking it away. And think about what the givers of privilege gain in using “white” people. Think about your allegiances. Who’s side are you on in a conflict? That will give you a look into your privilege.

    Question 1: Is all the responsibility for change on the white man? 2: Is it really safe and morally necessary to try and deactivate one's fear instinct towards a certain group of people just to be non racist, when fear is quite often based on real negative experiences and is responsible for keeping someone safe? eg...If a white guy is walking down the street and sees a group of black young men, blocking the street with their pants halfway down their ass, the obligatory sportswear and other hood/gang type clothing; should he try and keep on waliking through them or should he listen to his fear instinct and cross the road and take the long path right around them?

    I know I am late to the party but I wanted to say I love this series. I am a young white woman that grew up in a small rural town where I was not exposed to diverse races. I completely understand that unconsciously, that makes me racist. I by no means want to BE racist but not being exposed to other races can make you that way. One quote from another video later in the series was how abundance breads fear and proximity breads confidence (obviously noth the exact words but thats the jist). I have not been exposed. Now, to this point, I dont want to use this as an excuse, I WANT to be exposed so that the unconscious biases disapear. This series is a wonderful demonstration of exposure. The mpre I can be exposed, even virtually, the lesser those unconscious biases will be! So thank you for this series. On a side note, one thing that stuck out for me from this particular dialogue was when he said that he consiously tries to avoid interactions with young white woman (like in elevators or getting out of a car) to stop them from being uncomfortable. I think that that notion in itself is contributing TO racism. Now I also understand that I am open to change and some others are not but for me, I NEED exposure. I would RATHER have a black person come up to me and have a PLEASANT conversation with me rather than being scared of that black man in his car becuase if you stay in that car, that is just increasing my fear where, if you got out and had a good conversation with me, that would be proving to me that I shouldnt be scared of that black man in the car becuase he can have positive intetactuons with me. I hope that makes sense. I have been told I have white privillage and I aknoyledge that and I am sorry, thatis nothing I can control, BUT mg goal is to learn and contribute to the solution.

    Growing up in an environment without racial diversity doesn't automatically make you a racist. On the other hand, if someone is exposed to a racist propaganda, believe it, and act on it, then that person is a racist. The authors of the IAT "test" have admitted that their test does not diagnose an individual's inherent bias. If you're a kind and caring human being, don't let anyone bamboozle you into doubting your character under the guise of some mythical "unconscious" racism that you don't actually display in your interactions. Peace and love.

    Look, I’m a simply guy from the country. I’m not saying he’s wrong by any means... I just think it’s a lot of words, it’s simple if I was oppressed I’d also be violent. If my friends today were affected id lash out for them if they didn’t. I get that someone could say silence is compliance, I won’t negate that, but I protect me and mine, if my black friends personally are touched I’ll stand. I don’t blame those who get violet but I don’t condone the action either. When it comes to systemic racism I can see how in inner cities that’s an issue, but where I come from we were not pushed to college we took field trips to factory’s nobody gets out it’s a never ending cycle of being in the lower class, and it’s hard to break. It’s just a war on the poor, and when I first moved to the city I didn’t see or understand how that was happening to the black community or even my home town. I’m not saying black people don’t get targeted by this, I’m just saying I think it’s a war on the poor as well. If you disagree with me fair enough change my mind it’s constantly changing. As far as the n word is concerned I don’t really care, kinda like abortion to me, I don’t really think it’s right for anyone to use it, but I’m not female or black so I don’t really have a horse in that race it doesn’t personally affect me so I don’t stand for or against. I’ll let the masses decide.

    You opinion is based on ur feelings and few specific examples. Rioting is wrong MLK was strongly against it. Peaceful protest in 1960 successfully got us the civil rights laws. The race starts when ur born not a 100 years ago. You feel like u have to calculate ur moves. Me and other black people have never felt this way. The N word is wrong and if you use it I don’t think u get to be upset if a white person says especially if they are quoting black people. The white person and black person has the same possibility of getting away with crimes in today society. People kill people and they will continue to do so.

    Mr. Acho, please let me ask you a question: if black people have been held back for hundreds of years, then, quite honestly, why would you want to stay in this country? I am not being flippant, on the contrary, this to me seems a very logical question. The Italians of the 1890's left their own country by the millions, even though their heritage went back to Roman times. Were they held back for hundreds of years? Were they in a situation that was worse than African-Americans, or was their situation better? They just picked up and left and never even looked back. By the millions. It's as though they made it look easy. So, why not black people? It is obvious that the USA is on the decline, so what's the big attraction for you of the USA, a country that enslaved you and brutalized your women? We can't even talk about just what the white man did to your women, because it's too horrific, much worse than anything that happened to the Italians of the 1890's.

    I like that you are being positive, but started off as a VICTIM. WE aren't owed anything by anybody. Asking someone to understand my condition or my pain is assuming a VICTIM mentality and making me subservient to them(kind of like WELFARE). I am not a SLAVE and will not subject myself to the approval of others! Furthermore, I am not a King, which would imply that I am above others or have servants. I will uphold family values and take responsibility for my choices. Folks can find a way or find an excuse. Far more unarmed white people are killed by police officers than unarmed black people(FACT). The reason for these issues is that since the 60's the U.S. has been farming underprivileged votes. WELFARE has created and sustained this culture of victimhood and entitlement. I refuse to believe that a white person has a head start. Underprivileged people have more access to free: child birth, food, housing, medical, college tuition and home financing.

    Agreed. But I don't think he actually answered any questions. But he is bringing up things from the 60's and saying nothing has changed. Seriously?? We have made SOOO much progress. We used to have segregated schools! Now we had a black President, a black Vice President, Supreme court, Sec of State.....on and on. It's not 1955.

    I’m so glad that you told me that white people are bad I didn’t know that till now so nice to know I too am from Texas And have known racism in my life towards blacks but that does not give them the right to treat everyone as if they were bad and right now all lives do matter not just certain ones so I’m glad I listen to your show and shows me exactly what I thought before

    Nothing has changed since the 60s is your justification for rioting?? A lot has changed. This makes no sense. He has to calculate every move the second he leaves his house??? The guy is a celebrity. He probably gets treated like royalty When a white person commits a crime, they get off??? They do? I also feel like he is the one with the head start in the race. His father is a Doctor who immigrated from Nigeria, a two-parent household. Went to a private high school with $30,000/year tuition. College scholarship. Rich celebrity lives in an affluent neighborhood. He sounds pretty privileged. I don't see how he is oppressed. Can someone recommend a different viewpoint? I feel like Acho means well, but is way off base.

    There is plenty of proof of racial discrimination in the US criminal system. When I was 18 I was arrested and told the only reason I was charged was because the police had to call back up. On my court date the judge told me that he didn’t want this to affect my college or future with getting a job. Dismissed resisting arrest, underage drinking and pyrotechnics with nothing more than a slap on the back of my white privileged hand.

    My question: In the Emmett Till case, it took that woman 62 YEARS to recant her story. Was she on her death bed when she did? Was she trying to get right with God? I think at that point, it's a little too late. That story INFURIATES me. That child did nothing wrong. How could she live with herself all those years??

    "So for you to try to limit our speech, it's painful". Who exactly is limiting whose speech? If there is any word one person or group of persons can't use, that is oppression of speech.

    @Camden Hardy You're allowed to be as disingenuous as you want to be, that's your right as an American/human. That doesn't give you the right to tell someone else what they can/can't say. It has nothing to do with wanting to use a word, it has to do with the freedom to be able to use any word. You can't put a word in a song, sell that song to the masses, and then say only we as black people can sing along. There are a lot of rights I have that I choose not to use. I can legally go hunting for food, though I choose to go to a grocery store instead because I don't want to kill my food myself. It's still important I have that right. When you start limiting speech of certain groups it sets a dangerous standard and before you know it, you've created an entire book of words that can't be used by certain groups of people. If white people made it illegal for black people to say the word honky, would you have a problem with it? Spare me your lame excuses. Free speech is free speech, you don't get to pick and choose which words certain groups are allowed to say.

    Lord Firestaff bro🤦‍♂️ so you’re saying since white people can’t say the n word it’s oppression of speech?😂 You know in the back of your mind that that one word is not oppressing your speech what’s so ever. Why would you even want to say it knowing the significance and history of hatred that is in it? That’s the problem bc you don’t know what it’s like to be black and you never will, so it’s more of a respect thing like he said you shouldn’t even have a desire to say it. black people aren’t harming white people saying it so it shouldn’t even be an argument if black people can say it or not.

    I understand what you were trying to say about oppression but the anecdote that you used about the white girl on the bicycle was horrible. When you are passing someone, the responsibility to avoid a collision is entirely on you. She can not see you coming. No, she shouldn't have the earphones in while riding. But still, you smashed into her and then framed yourself as the victim. That fact in itself is allegory to the whole topic of race relations. Too much victimhood and not enough personal responsibility.
