In today's episode, I am joined by Phil Walker and Angela Shaw to discuss a subject that is both sensitive and important at the same time. We talk about how it feels like being ambitious, capable, entrepreneurial, driven, and black in the US right now. We'd like to believe that America has come a long way in terms of equality and opportunities, but in light of the events that transpired last month, a lot of people who think racism doesn't exist or isn't a big deal, and there are opportunities that come easier to us compared to our black counterparts.
