Anti-racism activist, author, and
scholar Tim Wise is the guest on this week's edition of The
Chauncey DeVega Show. Tim Wise is the author of numerous books
including his most recent Under the Affluence: Shaming the Poor, Praising the
Rich and Sacrificing the Future of America. He is also the
subject of a great new documentary called White Like
Tim Wise is a great friend of the podcast and Chauncey's other online work. During this, his second sit down at the virtual bar and salon, Tim Wise does not disappoint.
Tim and Chauncey talk about maintaining balance and mental health even while they spend a great deal of time working on issues related to the color line, discuss Donald Trump and alienated white voters, how to deal with white racial fragility and deflection, and adding new tools to the metaphorical toolbox for talking with folks about questions of justice and human rights.
In this week's episode of The Chauncey DeVega Show, Chauncey also talks about this weekend's Super Bowl, the Iowa caucuses, and how The New York Times' resident conservative "borrowed" his analysis of Trump and professional wrestling. Chauncey is also brought to bliss by a new soda discovery and shares some scary facts about the horrible state of food safety in the United States.
