Iron working is approximately 30 times more deadly than being a police officer. You already embarrassed yourself with the iron worker quip. John Permalink my point is Robert that every job has it innate safety hazards and that no number or statistic will ever prove to me that policing is not dangerous. Do i think iron working is dangerous?
And it hurts, and has hurt as long as I can remember. In today's climate of increasing racial disparagement in our country, I have something to say.
Whether deliberate or unconscious, the biases that come from long exposure to the idea that, because some group is different from us, they are therefore inferior causes pain and harm.
I can't claim to be in one of the groups who suffers the most although, as a woman, I've encountered my share of men who think I'm therefore inferior. But, still, I am in a minority in this country, and two words are used against me over and over and over.
I have argued against it when people say it in my presence. I believe that the prevalence of this two-word phrase has likely cost me and millions of others the ability to be taken seriously in work, activities, and life. Don't tell me it's just a joke. And I hate hate hate this.

I wish that people understood that other people are also -- people. The way they look has No. And very afraid at the turn this country has taken. Every little step in the right direction can help to take us out of this. And dismissing my feelings and experiences, or dismissing those of any other group, is not a step in the right direction.Archived Podcasts.
