William Smith is the guest on this week's episode of The Chauncey DeVega Show. He is a professor at The University of Utah and author of numerous articles on race, identity, psychology, and higher education. He is most well-known for his contributions to the study of what is known as "racial battle fatigue". During this week's show, Chauncey and Professor Smith talk about racism and trauma, "racial battle fatigue" and learning, how colleges and universities are failing students of color, police brutality, and if videos of police violence against black people are a type of contemporary lynching photography.
During this week's podcast, Chauncey shares his thoughts on the new movies "Split" and "The Founder". Chauncey also reinforces the importance of the little things in life and then does some dream interpretation that involves toilets, religion, and Donald Trump. A warning: the latter does not go well.
