Shaun speaks with activist, writer, and Fulbright scholar Bernard Hayman about anti-Blackness, why it's useful to distinguish it from a broader term like "racism," and how easy it is to be passively anti-Black in America.

I mentioned in this episode that Microsoft had, at one time, "bailed out" Apple. I got a few things wrong. First, I meant to say "100 million dollars," but said "one million" instead. Both are incorrect; it was $150 million. Second, it turns out that Microsoft's investment was likely not intended to save Apple.

We talked about Derek Black, the former white supremacist wunderkind. Here's the Washington Post's initial story: https://www.washingtonpost.com/national/the-white-flight-of-derek-black/2016/10/15/ed5f906a-8f3b-11e6-a6a3-d50061aa9fae_story.html

The final episode of a ten part series looking at the aftermath of the Pulse shooting in Orlando, solely through the voices of members of the LGBTQIA+ community.

Following the shooting, I began seeing members of the community openly worrying on social media, understandably for their lives, but also about the packaging of the attack both by major news outlets and elected officials. It seemed like coverage of the shooting was overwhelmingly formatted as cisgender, heterosexual people talking about members of the queer and Latinx community rather than talking to them. After frustrating hours of fruitlessly searching for perspective from the actual communities affected, I remembered that, in this modern world, I didn’t have to wait for any other outlet to have these conversations for me; I could do it myself.

As I started thinking about the project, something else became painfully obvious to me: I couldn’t wrap my head around the weight of 49 lives lost. I heard about a news anchor reading all 49 names on air, and was surprised to hear that this simple act took seven minutes. That number, 49, by itself, can feel small. 49 cents, 49 seconds. I wanted to understand the enormity, the massive loss of life, by talking to 49 people who identify within the LGBTQIA+ community, to understand that weight.

The interviews here are presented chronologically by recording date. I spoke with the interviewees for this episode between June 28 and July 4, and where they’ve given permission, I’ve included their social media information:

46. Albert Garnica
47. Borislav Nicolov
48. Husani Oakley @husanioakley on Twitter
49. Matthew Nouriel @matthewnouriel on Instagram

Given the fluidity of language surrounding sexual, gender, and ethnic identities, it can be hard to find current and comprehensive resources for inclusive language. Here are a few that I’ve found helpful, and I’m happy to add additional resources by recommendation:

GLAAD Media Reference Guide
Human Rights Campaign Glossary of Terms
Teaching Tolerance: A Gender Spectrum Glossary
Trans Student Educational Resources Definitions
Why We Say Latinx, via Latina magazine
