Naming It - Episode 14 - Are Trump Supporters Inherently Good People? Or Nah…

October 17, 2016

Bedford and LaMisha talk about their differences in philosophy, and how they see people. The main question of the episode is focused on what to make of people who support Donald Trump.  When someone supports a candidate who exhibits bigoted and sexist behaviors, what does that mean about them? And is it wrong to describe people based on their behaviors and the behaviors that they support?
