Robert Hockett is an American lawyer law professor, and policy advocate. We discuss with him the concept of “making __________ great again”. What does this mean? What is “great?” Whom is it great for?
Jonathan Feingold is a Professor of Law at Boston U with a focus on Critical Race Theory. We explore the relationship between race, law, and the mind sciences . This is part 3 of Race Class.
We know that race matters. But it can be hard to pinpoint precisely *how* race matters. In episode 3, we discuss 5 ways that race shapes life in America—even if we wish it didn’t. We’ll cover how race shapes (1) access to resources; (2) others’ expectations of us; (3) different treatment people receive; (4) our perspectives; and (5) the conditions we must navigate as we move through life. This list is not exhaustive. Still, it expands our vocabulary and helps us explain what we might mean when we say “race matters.”
