I believe this is exactly what you are doing, you are a kind connector with so much positive energy. Thank You and Thanks as well to your Guests. Keep up the good work.

    This is an issue of HUMAN rights. It has always been an issue of human rights. Race is an extremely divisive ideology. Culture is what makes us unique. Once we confront the problem of WHY we actively separate each other by denying targeted people the right to be treated with humanity, dignity, and decency...only then will be the turning point for positive change.

    I want to start with the positives for your show. Congrats on the platform and the awareness its bringing and getting. Thank you for stepping out to do this and help so many in this way. I truly applaud your efforts. The one small critique I would have is if you could or would bring in other Black/African American voices that may slightly differ from your own. I think it may be slightly problematic to try to speak for a whole racial group. I also wonder how much your experience differs from the average African American as you mentioned your Nigerian decent and affluent upbringing. Forgive me if I misunderstood or misheard this description of yourself in other episodes. A person born to immigrant parents 1st or possibly 2nd generation may have a different experience. Or its unclear if you were born here or in Nigeria. I could give several examples of what I mean but sometimes it seems ppl take examples out of context in this comment section. I will try. I've seen some Whites be much more accepting of immigrants than American born Blacks/African Americans due to the stereotypes that exist. Ie., immigrant hardworking vs lazy blacks is the false narrative stereotype I've encountered. Its a different ball game trying to combat those various stereotypes when you are an American born Black/African American. Even if you are 1st or 2nd generation immigrant the hardworking stereotype usually holds. I know plenty of hard working Blacks/African Americans but have been negatively streotyped in this way. Just one example. But my overall general comment would be an episode that includes many different Black/African American voices. Just a suggestion. Do as you wish. Probably just me but I've been a little disinterested with the lack of varying perspectives. God bless

    I would have like to see a REAL conversation with Matthew; not scripted from note cards (that his publicist probably prepared). He could have taken the time to engage with Acho from the heart. I'm not buying what he (Matthew) is selling in this conversation. Although his intentions were good; it just doesn't come off as authentic.

    Brother, stay safe out there in the land of Sam Houston. Please consider trying to do these on Zoom, et. al. for the duration of those tragic "outbursts" of COVID. I'm a say something that is an observation. The haters appear to be weaponizing the potential of having COVID like it's an invisible white hood. With that Karen in North Hollywood at Trader Joe's now in the media, I will say I have seen similar incidents. I've even heard said " why don't we get our kids to see if they can become carriers and go join those protests." There is some powerful hate being highlighted BECAUSE of the pandemic. The isolation is forcing people to out themselves in these venal, despicable ways; to which we now have to add biological warfare as a possiblity. I have to hold hope in my heart otherwise I'll go insane. But I have to acknowledge the pure evil that resides among us. Ignorance is an honest chore, a mess to clean up. Fear is a long row to hoe, and from it maybe some hatred will leave. But this feckless evil we see on T.V. every night, and in our neighborhoods is pure pain. There are NOT "good people on both sides" of THAT event. There is only despicable gaslighting of the American public. Could you please speak to the concept of gaslighting as it applies to "white allergies." Thank you.

    I really appreciate your videos and illustrations Emmanuel. I am hoping for a video on how Asians can enter into this conversation because we’ve been on both sides of the racial barriers and we’ve felt the effects of racism and also been siloed as “model minorities” which could be racism in another form. But particularly to the black community, it’s be helpful to learn how to process this alongside the black community.

    Thank you for doing this series. It is very eye opening. In a previous video one comment asked for you to a conversation with a teacher. I will second that motion. I have only taught in low socioeconomic schools with a large minority population. I want to hear your opinions on the school to prison pipeline, school resource officers (cops), the lack of school psychologists at many schools, the lack of resources at many schools, and how many schools are doing nothing to prepare children for adulthood. I can attest to how hard it is to fight a system seemingly designed to prevent kids from being successful. I can also say how good it feels when you give them a chance at success and they succeed.

      Hi Enryon. I would like to know more about this. I understand that there is a serious problem, that many of the kids in your school will never grow up to be "successful" by any measure of that word. Is this YOUR FAULT as a teacher? Do you personally discriminate against "brown" students, assigning them failing grades for good work, or intentionally giving them assignments that they cannot possibly do, different than white students? No, I didn't think so. So then, whose fault is this problem? Is it the school management? Do the resource officers force students to commit crimes just so they can increase their arrest records, and then arrest them anyway when those crimes were never done, like the FBI did to Michael Flynn? No, none of that either. If the schools are teaching, or at least attempting to teach, basic and more advanced skills like reading and mathematics; then how is this a failure of the schools, or something that can be corrected by a change in the schools? I don't know where you teach, but Baltimore MD had just about the highest school budget in the world, and yet they have 16 schools where not even one single "student" scores "proficient" at grade level in mathematics; so "lack of resources" cannot possibly be the problem, something else is. I do not believe that "school to prison pipeline" is the fault of teachers like yourself or any other policy of the schools, but maybe you know something I do not. I believe, until someone shows otherwise, that the main problem is the community attitude, that the people do not want to be law-abiding citizens and have no respect for white law imposed on them from outside. This is something that I did not cause and cannot fix, ever.

    Mr. Acho, I am pleading with you to make depth happen. Why didn't you talk to little Gaines about why you live cautiously. She needed to feel your burden in the little tasks of every day. Word choice, physical proximity, activity locations, sometimes even facial expression require thought about white people's comfort.

    Thank you for this channel. This is an extremely great movement forward. God bless you for this act of personal integrity. There is much work to do in the area of black and white in America. Beginning the conversation is a crucial start. There is much room for the deconstruction of systemic racism, as you mentioned in the video, the heroes and statues, and other things in American history that are offensive to Blacks. Literature that is taught in schools, white paranoia, etc. I could go on and on. Thanks again, Emmanuel. I am blessed by your willingness to walk into your call.

    I’d like to ask Emmanuel his thoughts on where he thinks we’ll be in 50 yrs, 100 yrs, 200 yrs? He’s doing a good job of asking us to think about uncomfortable conversations now, but do conversations turn into action long term? Does he have hope in moving forward? Will it be enough to actually eradicate white privilege, increase black pride, as well as equality in areas of urban rehabilitation, rent/mortgage disparities, job/wage fairness, law enforcement task force/review boards, education impartiality, etc. I’ve read “Between Me And The World” by TaNehisi Coates and seen a few broadcasts he’s been in...and to me he does not offer much hope for the future of black America. Coleman Hughes resonates with me in what he has to say to stand with black men, women, and children to fight the disparities they encounter living in both black and white people’s worlds. Can you put these men on your conversations too?

    Emmanuel, I have a question that I hope you can help with.. I am a white woman who is passionate about the black lives matter movement and I believe this is an incredibly important time to stand up and fight this problem. I want to ask you how, as a white person, I am to deal with the black people that don’t believe me. The ones that maybe have been hurt by white people way too many times to believe that I am on their side. The black people that are racist towards white people? I know they have every right to be angry right now, because so am I. But how do I express my passion for believing in their fight in a correct manner? It’s an honest question. I’m unsure of how to respond in a respectable manner to a black person that doesn’t like white people. Thank you so much. You’re videos are inspiring beyond words and I hope that I get support on this comment to receive an answer.

    Can you please consider reaching out to Jenna Marbles, this platform is erupting right now with a lot of apologises about past blackface videos etc. These MNmorers have massively influencing channels and are having a hard time with navigating reconciliation for thier mistakes. I think it would be very powerful right now for us all to see one or all of them truly have a conversation, uncomfortably, about what they did, why it was wrong and impactful and how they can be active going forward. I talk about Jenna as she is willing to cancel herself over these mistakes, however i think it more useful and healing to actually confront these issues arising in the MNmore community. God speed Brother thank you for this amazing series!

    This is something i wrote for another video of yours but I found it prudent to post here as well. Sorry for my bad English but im from Norway and Im trying my best. You right. This is uncomfortable. McConaughey: Heard, heard. White allergy? WTF? We are acting like racism is a white problem. Every tribe in the history of mankind has acted like an asshole. EVERYONE!!!!! The reason that the narrative of THIS "debate" is what it is, its because the white man won. Every race or tribe in history has acted like this. Only that the white man did it better than anybody else. Within the span of a few hundred years, the white man subjugated the entire globe. The Americas, Australia, Near East, Far East, china, India, Africa and bla, bla, bla. But here is the thing, every other tribe, or race if you like, would have done the same thing if they could. Dont give me that horseshit about the peaceful tribes in the Andes that happlessly fell victim to Cortes and his marry bunch of brutes. The Inkas. The Aztec. They murdered their way through south America to form their Empire. Ethnic cleansing. Mass murder. Mass enslavement. Fuck'em. Far as Im concerned, one asshole was replaced with another. For the oppressed im sure it made diddely squat difference who swong the whip. White guilt? Well, fuck you. Fuck you AND the newspaper you saild in on. I havent done anything to you. Neither did my father. He was a Samii, but that a whole different story. You want help to get rid of the absolutly crushing inequity in the world? Sure, Im with you. Ill stand on the barricades with you. I'll march with you and shout that this have to change. Whatever it takes. But if you point your finger at me and say that Im partly to be blamed. That I have had anything to do with this fucked up situation we are in! I will snap it off and kick you in the balls and say, FUCK YOU. You belong in the gutter as far as im concerned. And now we got idiots like Matthew McConaughey going on this self annihalition groveling tour just to prove what kind of superior white HE is. Fuck you Matt. Sitting there with your pre written dialogue, acting like you know what the fuck you are talking about. "Heard" LOL. I swear, I thought he would go all Dave Chappelle and say "WORD" So, a question to Mr Acho. Whats your endgame here? What? What do you and all the black and brown peoples of America wants? Equality? Hm? Replacing 400 years of black slavery with 400 years of white slavery? Im gonna go with equality. But before you can have that, you have to have equal opportunity. You dont have to be fucking Einstein to understand that, making education so expensive that only the people that already HAVE money can get it, WILL segregate the population. So Mr Acho. You can have as many white, snivelling hollywood shitheads as you want on your "side" It just doesnt matter. They are like those charity fundraising parties. Nobody actually gives a shit but it feels good and looks good. For equality to happen for ANY minority, well shit, even the majority sometimes (Woman suffraget for example) you need allies. And the most effective allies is gonna come from the establisement. You know, the powers that be. How do you get to those? Simple, I didnt say easy but it is simple. Get to the people that wote for those in power. Like me. A white man. I live my life under two simple maximes. 1: An asshole is an asshole is an asshole. 2: You dont have to be a dick about it. The first covers that if; A person acts bad aginst me, for no apparent reason. He's an asshole and I dont want to have anything to do with him. I dont give a shit about his skintone. The second covers; that nomatter what my successes are, or lack of thereof, I dont push it into someone elses faces. If you dont know what I mean by that, I suggest you turn of your fucking mobile and go sit somewhere quiet and think about it. This is not kindergarden. Ok, im running out of steam here. Im drunk and im hot and swetty and i have had a good day. I won a long game of chess and im feeling pretty good, lol. So in closing. Dont tell me about micro racism. Its bullshit. Wy? Well, Im guessing that you, Mr Acho, are not blameless either. White allergy? WTF does that even means? It is probably the dumbes thing I have heard this week. The reason that black Americans are supressed is just the roll of the dice. You would done the same thing to us if the table had been turned. To realize THAT is the road to redemtion. For all of us.

      It means that people learn much more than is the intention of the "teacher" in that moment. Negative Example: "Taught"/ Intention: Teacher wants to teach "1+1=2". Context: Teacher calls up only boys, almost no girls. If teacher calls up a girl and she gets the answer right teacher overenthusiastically praises her, but reacts matter of fact-ly with boys. "Caught"/ Learned: 1+1=2 and "girls are not good at maths". Or the handcraft teacher permitting the boys to read during knitting lesson: only the girls get the chance to even learn knitting - yet all children "catch" that "boys don't do knitting". Positive example: Or me and my child's teachers: "let's concentrate on "teaching" only capital letters since he is disabled." My child in a regular school observing all other children writing capital and lower case letters "catches" "everyone can write capital and lower case letters". Starts writing both. Mother and teachers have very ashamed conversation. He's then "taught" everything because we can't know what he will "catch" and how he will use what he learns.

    Hey Emmanuel! I recently saw a really disturbing video posted on Facebook, "Black Lives Matter is a Leftist Lie" by the Conservative Twins, by a White friend of mine. And I'm trying my best to be anti- racists but don't know how to respond when this ideology is being backed by two Black American men. I was wondering if you could do a reaction to, or even interview of these guys. Take care!

I'm a white man, 58 years old, who has had relatively little experience interacting with black people. I would sincerely love to help me understand this.

    Please explain “Jim Crowe “ and how that changed black lives in the US. I am a first generation Canadian women and would love to hear more about the history of racism in America. Remember history so it won’t be repeated!

      Hi! The book “the new Jim crow “ by Alexander will inform you on this and other crucial truths to understanding how we in America got to the point of killing George Floyd. Thank you for caring enough to ask!

    How can I get me and my kids on this show. I have great questions. That I haven't heard yet. We are from California, but now live in the South. Where there are a lot of racists whites. It makes it difficult for us, because we are clumped in with them. How to be an ally in the south, while also not being offensive or virtue signaling. Thank you

    Both of these men are so special. I nearly cried watching this. Strangely, this uncomfortable conversation was the most comforting thing I've seen in ages. If they can have this conversation, so can we all.

    Thanks. This is so needed and appreciated. My office had a “mandatory race relations” talk that went awry. In the end the whites in the group were called racist, in fact “the worst kind because you don’t think you are” followed by a litany of offenses. I’m trying to understand, to be open, to be sensitive/empathetic/empowering etc but the workplace is now very uncomfortable and divided because of the disclosed lack of respect for each other. My question is; how can I/we move forward when “I’ve been put on notice”? Kind comments only please (I’ve already been called out and am hurting)

      Maybe get a professional anti-racism councilor from the outside in to moderate a monthly or bimonthly talk? Someone you all can agree on? It's really about learning how to communicate grievances and needs as an individual for all of you. For a "white" colleague for example: "I do not want to hurt you, please believe me. Could you explain to me what did I specifically do that hurt you and do you have a suggestion how we could change that? Could the two of us continue the talk about the specifics of that situation until we both feel alright about this?" That would get you both out of not helpful "all white people/ all black people"-structures. You two could offer a role model for others in your office if and when you feel comfortable about that process. For a "black" colleague for example: "I have the feeling that I am overdue a promotion. I also have the feeling I don't get the promotion because I am "black". - How can we access the documentation in this office to find out if there are signals for privilege and discrimination based on skin colour withouth breaching privacy? - How can we find a party who accesses the documentation with all of us agreeing on their neutrality?" That would discover whether your office did or did not show bias due to skin colour. To know either would be helpful to all. (And since you're at it: how about all the other biases over sex, gender, disability, education, social background, religion, country of origin of grandparents ... Just saying ... We all need to work hard on all of this 24/7.) Feeling uncomfortable and being hurt - both possibly for longish stretches of time - comes with life. (It says so in the small print which no one apparently bothers to read beforehand anyway. 😉)

    Emmanuel thank you for your transparency and time. I just recently heard the struggles among the black community “not being black enough” that if a black hasn’t dark enough skin they “don’t struggle with profiling”or they’re being accused of “being a sellout”. If a black man dates a white woman, called not black enough. If a black is a child of mixed parents, they’re not black enough. Seriously! Please help us understand. Could you explain what this does to the black community as a whole? I would think it’s creating turmoil within the BLM movement. I grew up a young child in the early 60’s watching segregation. That if your skin was darker than a brown paper bag “you were black enough” and would be allowed to sit at the lunch counter with other blacks.

    Emmanuel, you've opened my eyes with this. I've seen the rioting and I feel it's diluting the true message. Thank you so much for helping me to see the true problem. Keep it up!

      The percentage of rioters as opposed to protesters is tiny. FBI has rooted white supremacists trying to stir the pot. That being the he'll would you feel if you were not white. Walk a mile in their shoes white boy.. A pissed off Native American. Damn the hubris of the whites. Empathy is beyond you

      I'm a black woman and I definitely don't agree with rioting and looting. It's not my way for I'm a Jehovah's Witness. With that said, it's rioting and looting is diluting the message I think you're thinking way too much about things being destroyed instead of lives being destroyed. So I about life that can't be rebuilt because they're dead. Peoples Insurance can cover what's been destroyed. And even if it doesn't you still have your life and as long as you're breathing you can rebuild you can change. I think one can be aghast at rioting and looting and at the same time not feel like the message is being destroyed. I think the people pay more attention to the rioting and looting and they don't pay attention to the message is because they'd rather care about the things and not the people behind the things

    Thanks for these videos. as a somewhat more than middle aged white guy, I can't tell you how awful it makes me feel to see how blacks are treated. it physically hurts to think that humans who look like me can trtat humans who look like you so poorly. I am somewhat ashamed that, until only a few years ago that I thought that "not seeing color" was Right. I see you and value you, as you are, color and all. I will not let the color I was born with affect how I feel about another human because of the color they were born with. Uncomfortable question: Do you, have any thought about the state of black culture? The reason that I ask this is that, in a lot of ways, I think that a culture is reflected in the language it uses and, when I look at Black culture I hear a lot of "tells" that black culture is not yet mature. EG: Who does a black man hang out with? His boys. Where do they hang out? Their crib. Etc. Thanks again for these, I look forward to more.

      It depends on what the "more" is describing. In this case, more refers to (an understood, unstated, singular) "knowledge/information/understanding," so "is" is correct.

    I have this white allergy.... this idea that black people were trying to be accepted by acting like white people. Dress, talking , ways of doing things. NOW I realize that I need to respect black people as a culture. This is your life and I feel strongly that all of us can and should be authentic as who we are. Black culture is important . I respect that!

    Have always believed in love to cure many things but it only fed my narc’s enormous ego. it is important to be wise when dealing with a narcissist and I’m glad that darkwebprohack helped cloned my wife’s phone. i got access to her dealings both on phone and social media without touching her phone,I’m here in Miami Florida USA and able to access my wife’s phone with a cloned app even while she was away in the UK cheating on me.All I did was share my wife’s phone number with darkwebprohack and I was able to read both her new and deleted messages from my phone through a remote link to a programmed app containing cloned cell information without having to touch her wife was a cheating Narcissist and I’m glad to find out all her secrets and infidelity with the help of darkwebprohack. My wife also tried to use this coronavirus outbreak as a means to get back to me but I’m not stupid ebony to allow someone so toxic back into my life, I’m finally going through divorce with a lot of evidence against her.i read all deleted and chat on Whatsapp,Facebook,Instagram and GPS location of her phone at all times, you can contact the great hacker via Gmail (darkwebprohack) or text and speak to him directly on the phone and WhatsApp +17076225057 and I hope you will fund the peace with your heart after finding the truth just like myself

    I grew up in a small, VERY white town in Southwest lower Michigan. I think we maybe had 2 maybe 3 black kids in my whole graduating class. I never thought of myself as racist but, I didnt realize how deep seeded racism and systemic racism truly is. Thankyou for your series. It's been truly eye opening and every time you post a new video I share it out on Facebook. If my eyes can be opened, hopefully, I can open the eyes to my friends and family members. That's the only way I think we can keep this country moving forward is to open one another's eyes.

    I have biracial children(black/white).. i love this bc it explains so much that we dont pay attention to. I am glad though that I have taught my children to not say things like "this black girl in my class or this white girl". I have corrected my kids to learn their names and that color is not important. I have to say it does work. It starts in childhood and is just a continuous thing. We should stop the divide with us.

      But color IS important. It represents a culture that should be cherished, both African Americans and European Americans. Although I can't say what the right way is to explain it to a kid.
