There’s no easy way to talk about racism.

It’s a learned behavior and hard to unlearn without a relaunch to thinking patterns.

I didn’t know anything different. But I actively worked to see how I was raised and change this.

And I’m still a work in progress.

Today on the Launch Your Life Podcast, I’m talking about the racist history of my home town and Christmas, among other things.
