A Conversation With Sociologist Allan G. Johnson Part 2

Sociologist Allan Johnson is the guest on this week's installment of The Chauncey DeVega Show. This is part 2 of the conversation which began on last week's episode of The Chauncey DeVega Show.

Dr. Johnson is the author of many books--non-fiction, memoirs, and fiction--including The Gender Knot: Unraveling Our Patriarchal Legacy, The Forest and the Trees: Sociology as Life, Practice, and Promise. He is one of the country's foremost experts on questions of race, gender, and social (in)equality. 

In the second part of their conversation, Allan and Chauncey discuss masculinity, empathy, sexism, misogyny, "men's rights", and how best to talk with students and other people about systems of privilege.

During this week's episode of The Chauncey DeVega Show, Chauncey offers some thoughts on last week's Oscars, Super Tuesday, and "Trumpmania". 

Chauncey also shares his anger and advocates for a new Deacons for Defense after watching the assault on a young black woman at Donald Trump's rally in Louisville, Kentucky.
