Today JJ Wienkers & Andrew talk about a caller’s possibly racist street name and JJ’s hometown. Be sure to keep leaving us messages at (323) 389-RACE.

Small-town Wisconsin! It's where
- young people don't think racism exists because they've never been anywhere that people of other races exist
- there's only one black kid and he's so good at sports that people go "we aren't racist; we LOVE our star running back!"
- Baby boomers still talk about the "race riots" as if Milwaukee has been a non-stop war zone for the last 40 years
- plenty of folks who don't have any hate in their heart still treat anyone non-white/non-Christian/non-straight as alien

Or did I just describe everywhere? I've only ever lived in Wisconsin myself so I'm sure my own point of view isn't terribly enlightened or deep.

"Look, we know you folks aren't really ready for actual hip hop, so we'll just play a couple of Drake songs and then follow that up with Lady Gaga."
