Welcome to another episode of conversations with Coleman.

Today's episode is a recording of a live Q&A that I did a few months ago. I talked about how to have difficult conversations, what anti-racist books I'd recommend for children, the consequences of identity politics, blackness as an identity, the overuse of racism, cultural diversity and its relationship to racial disparity, and several other topics.

Coleman, the problem you’re going to have is that you make way way too much sense. The anointed must hate you for calling them on their shit.

I recently had someone shriek at me when I stated a political view. I waved my hand at him in dismissal and walked away. I will not engage with someone who becomes red-faced angry over the political view of another. There are reasons to become irate to that level. A person's political view is not one of those reasons. If I was going to continue a conversation with that person, it would be about when it is justified for a person to become screaming angry, and when it is not.

Thank you for reading an excerpt from the book...I agree, the author’s writing expresses the point of race/class perfectly. I’ll be reading her book.

On the subject of pride, something often gets lost. The initial pride declaration is not that you are proud to be X, but that you are X and proud of yourself and what you have accomplished. That you will not let others hold you back for one aspect of your person you have no control over. As a Pride movement spreads, this distinction gets lost and it turns into proud to be X.

Turning a temper tantrum into a learning moment requires a calm adult.

Keep your demeanor soft and ask honest questions.

I'm curious what your thoughts are on the difference that "generational wealth" makes when discussing whether e.g. A black person from my generation has a disadvantage because their parents and grandparents were affected by redlining and other policies.
My paternal grandmother was an immigrant and came to this country with very little, but she eventually was able to buy a duplex in Oakland in a neighborhood that possibly was off limits to my black friends' grandparents. I didn't grow up rich as a result but my parents were able to borrow money from my grandmother occasionally and I think this example, although anecdotal is a demonstration of how socioeconomic disadvantages carry forward to some extent.

Please enlighten me if I’m missing something. Why aren’t you and others mentioning Chloe Valdary’s Theory of Enchantment anti-racist program?? I really need to know bc I’ve been trying to get my niece, who is a trauma-informed counselor at an inner-city high school to contact Chloe. Your input here would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

There is no need for some specific children books. Just read them regular traditional stories from various corners of the world to show how connected these are.
