A Conversation With Professor Paula Ioanide About Race, the Color Line, and Emotion

Paula Ioanide is the guest on this week's episode of The Chauncey DeVega Show. Dr. Ioanide is a Professor of Comparative Race and Ethnicity Studies at Ithaca College.

She is the author of the great new book The Emotional Politics of Racism: How Feelings Trump Facts in an Era of Colorblindness. In this conversation on The Chauncey DeVega Show, Paula and Chauncey talk about emotion, empathy, sympathy, and human concern across the color line. They also discuss police brutality, the white racial frame, and if the white gaze is capable of seeing people of color as full and equal human beings.

Paula Ioanide also does some great sharing about her activist work and teaching in the American prison system.

On this week's episode of The Chauncey DeVega Show, Chauncey talks about his week dealing with Right-wing sewer dwellers who were upset about his essay about the Paris terror attacks and the Right-wing hate media, gives an update on his recent TV and radio appearances, and then closes the show discussing so-called "safe spaces" on college campuses, as well as the manifesto for campus change offered by the young lions at Amherst College in Massachusetts.
