Episode 12 (Express): We Are Anti-RACIST

With everything that is happening in the wake of the killing of George Floyd, we want to make clear the Wealth and Law Podcast stance:

  1. Racism is wrong in all of its forms (direct or indirect)
  2. Racism exists in our society and should never be tolerated
  3. White privilege exists in our society and it supports racism in direct and indirect ways
  4. By listening to, learning from, and following the lead of wise leaders in the Black community, we can overcome racism and change our society to become fair and just
