Michael Eric Dyson, "Tears We Cannot Stop: A Sermon to White America"
Originally aired: Friday, February 10, 2017
The absence of a racial epithet in your public vocabulary does not excuse or preclude you from participating in a racist society, says Michael Eric Dyson. And it's liberals who plug their ears to their own biases who may have the most to learn. Dyson is a Georgetown professor, New York Times contributing author, and leading thinker on race relations in America. In his conversation with Dave Ross -- paralleling the prose in his wrenching book -- he makes the case for how and why white Americans are morally obligated to both acknowledge and address the roots of racism and its influence on our society. Professor Dyson and 'Brother Ross' engage in a difficult conversation and discussion of race in America, circa 2017. This interview is a can't-miss.
