Dear White Women


Jun 17, 2020

We had to postpone our pre-scheduled episode on the importance of voting to bring you this critically-timed conversation on President Trump’s decision to return to the campaign trail on Juneteenth in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Without knowing the history and significance of both of these things, you might just think, oh well, he’s hoping 300,000 people gather without masks to support his next bid for Presidency - that’s not so smart.

But if you know the history, you realize it is way worse than that.

What to listen for: 

  • What is the significance of Juneteenth? The freeing of slaves in Texas.
  • How we were not taught the full truth about President Abraham Lincoln’s motivation for ending slavery.
  • How the history of the Tulsa Massacre was erased.
  • And... how President Trump “coincidentally” picked both Juneteenth AND Tulsa as the site of his return to the campaign trail.
  • Can you think critically about this choice, and what it might mean for propagating hate?
