Us & Them: Street Corner Confessional

Feb 7, 2017

 

"I know there’s a risk. There are people who are going to hear this and they are going to change the way they feel about me. They are going to make assumptions about me. They’re going to automatically label me with certain words, the common narratives about Donald Trump [like he] hates women, hates immigrants, and so on. And they are going to assume that I am the same in that regard... and that’s a danger."

On this week's episode of the "Us and Them" podcast, we hear from the silent majority, those who voted for President Donald Trump but who might not have expressed their opinions aloud to friends and family... or even shared Trump's vocal sentiments on women and race.

From West Virginia Public Broadcasting, this is "Us & Them" the podcast where we tell stories from America's cultural divides.
