White privilege is an invisible force that has been unconsciously enjoyed by many for decades while very seldomly recognized by those who benefit from it. This fireside chat with Rich Homberg covers a wide span of issues from media, Detroit and the state of the world post George Floyd. Rich and Hajj are excited about having an uncomfortable conversation around social injustice and the narrative of Black America and the media.
