A Conversation with Anti-Racism Activist and Author Tim Wise

Tim Wise is the guest on this week's episode of The Chauncey DeVega Show. He is one of the United States' leading anti-racism scholars and activists. Tim is also the author of numerous books including his most recent, "Under the Affluence."

Tim is a great friend of the show and this is his third appearance.

In this week's episode of the podcast, Tim and Chauncey talk about Donald Trump, the return of David Duke, and why it is racism and not "economic insecurity" that is the real basis of the Trumpthuglicans' devotion to their leader. In this conversation, Chauncey and Tim also play the prediction game and try to puzzle through what will happen once Donald Trump loses in November, ponder the power of so-called "hashtag activism," and talk about working on craft and improving one's ability to community with folks about these critical issues of social justice and equality.

During this week's podcast, Chauncey does some sharing about trying to find life balance, ponders the legacy of his father and how some folks are so quick to forget their friends after they pass away, and offers up a quick review of some new movies including Sausage Party, Pete's Dragon, and Hell or High Water. Chauncey also shares a personal story about why it is so important to reach out to our homeless brothers and sisters.
