Excellent show. Thoughtful, provocative questions set within a historical and current context. David's responses, thoughts and advice about how we can take an active role in combatting racism was presented in an articulate and intelligent manner

Show to day

Karina very good content - It would be great to think that the people who don't have this knowledge is getting this info but guess if the situation don't affect them why should they care and have the understanding. And yeah the people who know and have knowledge about this subject should lobby (by any peaceful means necessary) rather than moan and rant. Maureen
