TEDx – Jay Smooth – How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Discussing Race


“You will never bat 1000 when talking about race.” -Jay Smooth


“In this talk, he discusses the sometimes thorny territory of how we discuss issues of race and racism, offering insightful and humorous suggestions for expanding our perception of the subject.”


“Jay Smooth is host of New York’s longest running hip-hop radio show, the Underground Railroad on WBAI 99.5 FM in NY, and is an acclaimed commentator on politics and culture.”



Community Village‘s insight:


This is the best advice I’ve heard on how to be conscious of personal biases.


Think of anti-racism work as a daily hygine routine – ’cause the media feeds you information daily with bias. It takes a conscious effort to see through to the truth.


PS – I didn’t hear him explain how he learned to stop worrying. Did you? Or why he loves discusing race?
