  3. This was a great talk, Tim. And when you mentioned that the left tends to think that obscurity equals legitimacy, this was truly profound. I’ve found myself delegitamizing leftists when they actually get to do mainstream appearances and are recognized by power structure. Though I hope you can provide a way that one can measure someones legitimacy once they’re given mainstream attention even in the face of concern and doubt. But one more thing:

    Don’t take this the wrong way man. But I think a year back you posted a blurb on FB where you said that it’s so hard for middle aged men to find clothes that look good. That they might as well just leave us with robes and sansa belts. On that note: WHERE DID YOU GET THAT SHIRT MAN, IT’S LOUD AS HELL!!!

  4. Physicians really do see black people through stereotypical lenses. Same thing for teachers and most other professionals.

    Yes. SOMEBODY needs to talk about embracing diversity instead of hiding it in the “can’t talk about it” box.

  5. This was an amazing, informative, and inspiring conversation! So many great points were made and we have so much work to do. I hope that we can get to the point where we are no longer just protesting and debating but we are actually governing and putting what we know to be right into practice. I think Van is right, if we don’t get serious about governing we are going to turn into a battle ground as we get more diverse, maybe another American revolution, a real on this time, is what its going to take to get us the social and economic justice we’ve worked so hard for.
