Ep 53: America’s most lethal weapon

June 4, 2019

Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me. Lies. Lies. Lies. The stick is the oldest toy in history of the world and language is the oldest murder weapon. In this episode, we chop it up with Dr. Jamila Lyiscott, an Assistant Professor of Social Justice Education at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, about the one thing that has provided access to power in its many forms as well as granted many people permission to murder and disenfranchise an entire race of people: language.
