    Good show today, Kris! I enjoyed the emphasis on the need to keep in mind how determined white power and privilege is to maintain its position, and the need to keep up the fight against that. Please give the name & proper spelling of the other interviewee on today’s program, and his primary affiliation. Tour A Hak?
