Episode 116 of a Jew & a Gentile Walk into a Bar…Mitzvah is about Black Lives Matter and systemic racism. Charles, Helena and Chris are joined by three of our Sisters/Brothers of the Leaf, Erika Simon, James Quander, and Kaylord Hill, to discuss systemic racism in America. In order to keep the conversation focused, The Jew, The Gentile, and The Ampersand of reason followed the advice of Rabbi Shimon ben Elazar: ” Do not try to appease your friend during his hour of anger; Nor comfort him at the hour while his dead still lies before him.” Pirkei Avot, 4:18 To skip our opening mishigas start at the 20:10 mark.
