Listening and responding to another person with respect that improves mutual understanding and trust is the courageous and crucial way. ❤️
This is a repost from my brother @salmasekela
If you're a fan of fitness or the weirdness of crossfit fitness you know the @wodcastpodcast. From time to time I get to be a guest and we talk about all sorts of shit. Fun shit. Sex shit. Real life shit. @1scottmcgee (center) is a Swat Team member. His job requires a special skill set to do at a high level and survive. I'm a black man in America...that also requires a special skill set to do at a high level and survive. As luck would have it a listener curated question got us into a very deep conversation about how our worlds collide. Nothing was left off the table. As you'll see in the final 40 minutes or so (53:40), shit gets heated and very real but we do not disrespect each other. We learn from each other and will continue to do so. These are the conversations we need to be having as a nation if we are to truly move forward. We need to get our heads out of the sand about race, gender, religion or any other markers that make us unique and different as Americans. Links in my bio if you'd like to have a listen and thank you @1scottmcgee for being willing to continue to have these type of conversations with me. I grow from each one.
