C-SPAN Guest’s Amazing Response to Caller Who Asks How to Confront His Own Racism, Intolerance

LABSN Editor’s Note: A C-Span “Washington Journal” caller admits racism and guest Heather McGhee of DEMOS thanks the caller for admitting his racism and gently advises him on how to improve his view of black people.

Both sides of this discussion should be commended.

BETTIE PAGE QUEEN OF CURVES | BUNNY YEAGER WORLD’S PRETTIEST PHOTOGRAPHER
