    I thought your responses to the questions were well thought out. I have even purchased the two books (Uncomfortable Conversations...) and added them to the book club I am currently trying to start for others to read along with Tom Burrell's Brainwashed. Re-educating myself. As an individual who has reached their twilight years (well over 60), I was taken back by your explanation of why it is okay for us to use the N-word. Your supposition is that it is "a term of endearment" - that questioning its use is an attempt to inhibit our freedom of speech. Please enlighten me if this is incorrect. I find nothing endearing about the use of the N-word - even if the spelling according to my research has been changed. I have read a few articles on you (trying to educate myself) and one of them stated that you are a Christian. Is this true? If so, then you might be familiar with this passage: Isaiah 5:20-21 Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter! Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes, and shrewd in their own sight! I say that something that is from the depth of evil thought, in it's creation, cannot be turn into something good --- "a term of endearment". What say you Mr. Acho? Regale me if you please. As an aside ---- food for additional thought: In the media world Chinese don't proudly call themselves Chinks, Japanese don't flood their media calling themselves Japs, Jews don't walk around greeting themselves as Kikes, and Latinos don't sing about themselves as Spics, however, there are many Black people who proudly call themselves Nigga? Why? If you haven't read Tom Burrell's book Brainwashed I would encourage you to add it to your list. As Tom Burrell states in his book: we need to stop responding to and using terms that are degrading to us. (Changing the "er" to an "a", to me is tantamount to putting lipstick on a pig and now saying it is not a pig!) Black women are not Hos, Black people are not Niggas, Black men are not....you fill in the blank. "A man/mind convinced against itself is of the same opinion." And so I will keep an open mind.

    I am a 72 year old white woman whose first experience at 11 yrs old with racism/segregation was very traumatic. Our friends from Haiti were not allowed to go into an amusement park in 1960. We were finally allowed to go in because my mother made a huge scene but one of us had to be with one of our friends at ALL times. It was hard for me to “understand”, I still don’t. I’ve lived about 3 yrs in tenement buildings with rats and roaches in the same communities as blacks were forced to live. I am grateful for those experiences which opened my heart to the horrors others live for a lifetime. What saddens me is no one should live like that in order to know what others suffer daily. I will and do fight fir us to reach a point that when I am with you I become you, I see you not me, as it should be with anyone. Hope I make sense. I have fought all my life in my little ways to end the horrors of 1916 to this, sadly, day and pray that people, white or others will make the changes needed to bring what God wants of us all. All lives matter, of course, but right now, today, white people need to educate themselves, grow a heart and yell at the top of their voices “ Black Lives Matter” and do something about it. One of my small ways is to not let anyone to call me “miss” Katherine. Some say it’s a Southern politeness, I think that term comes from slavery, the master would call me Katherine if I were a slave and I would be obliged to call the master “miss smith“ or “mister smith”, if not I would be whipped or raped or whatever the master chose as punishment. I cry almost every time I watch the news at the horrors that still are going on! God bless and be with you on your much needed journey to help bring awareness and hopefully empathy.

    I hadn't seen this episode first, before I watched the other ones. I must say, this is SOOOOO riveting and thorough. Emmanuel I cannot say it enough, many special 'Thank You's' for creating, sharing and certainly educating myself and so many others. This IS DEFINITELY an eye opener. We NEED this! Please keep them coming. Thank you.
