LVE20-White Fragility & the cost of free speech

This week I discuss some headlines in the news specifically what went down at the IFCL. What is “white fragility”? That’s the subject of a paper I was introduced to last week. Most of it was absurd, but I found myself agreeing with some of it. What happened with Milo Yiannopoulos? Did he justify pedophilia? What does this mean for free speech?
