Jared Paul: “Five Times My Skin Color Didn’t Kill Me”

In this TED Talk, Jared Paul speaks on moving from non racism to anti-racism.

Listen to this talk in comparison to say, Clint Smith’s talk on being raised in an armor of advice, Javon Johnson’s “Cuz He’s Black“, Melissa Harris-Perry’s role call of the ever-growing list of people who are black being killed by police in America, and know that people who are white need to talk, and take actions to end racism.

I'm a Social Justice Educator and Aspiring Humanitarian who is interested in conflict resolution, improving intergroup relations, and building more equitable and inclusive communities. "Notes from an Aspiring Humanitarian" is my blog, where I write about issues of diversity, inclusion, equity, and social justice. By exploring social identities through written word, film & video, and other forms of media, I hope to continue to expand and enrich conversations about social issues that face our society, and to find ways to take social action while encouraging others to do so as well in their own ways.
