The Importance of Having Hard Conversations

“We can be Spiritual and angry at the same time.

We can be Spiritual and take action at the same time.”

In the interview today, I am talking with a podcast listener, June. Divya is also back to co-host with me! June tells us how, as a Black woman, she is aware that when she is with white women, she is aware that they are filtering what they are saying to her. June shares what it’s like to be in a bi-racial relationship in the Midwest. We talk about implicit bias, actions you can take to support the Black community, Spiritual bypassing, and the importance of having difficult conversations.

I am learning so much through these beautiful women, and through all of you! Together, I know we can evolve, grow, and change to make a better future. We need to acknowledge the racist problems that exist in our communities rather than sweep it under the rug. These are Global issues causing pain for so many. In order for healing to begin in the Black community, we must say yes, there is a problem. I see it. We need to acknowledge we played a role in this problem with our silence and with our passiveness. We have work to do, friends.
