He goes on and on about “bad” neighborhoods and the “bad” people who live there with total disregard of systemic oppression or any question of the monolith he paints. At the surface it’s ignorant, but underneath there is a lot of racist socialization that this narrator needs to unpack and process before I would consider this worthwhile listen. This show is causing harm to anyone who isn’t white and especially to those who are not white and coming from disenfranchised communities.
