10. System Failure (feat. Ryan Budhu)
To quote guest Ryan Budhu: "Systemic inequity impacts distinct parts of our community differently, and [Ryan's brother who died in police custody] Ravi’s story is just one facet of a larger narrative. To understand this larger story, South Asians should strive to understand this nation’s history and how our current legal system can perpetuate inequality. In doing so, there will be a greater recognition that the road to equal treatment for all, particularly for communities of color and those suffering in poverty, is intertwined with justice for Black lives." Listen to this episode for Ryan's eloquent discussion on systemic racism and why it should matter to South Asians.
