A clip from Baratunde Thurston’s TED Talk “How to deconstruct racism, one headline at a time” from TED2019

Baratunde Thurston explores the phenomenon of white Americans calling the police on Black Americans who have committed the crimes of … eating, walking or generally “living while Black.” In this profound, thought-provoking and often hilarious talk, he reveals the power of language to change stories of trauma into stories of healing — while challenging us all to level up.
