The Problem of Racist Friends

26 minutes

Friendships can be complicated. What happens if you discover that your friend holds racist views? Or homophobic views? Or sexist attitudes? Bias exists in every person. Yet racism, sexism, and anti-LGBTQ-ism take prejudice to a different and possibly dangerous level. Handling a racist "friend" is a difficult situation. It can create hostility or even a teachable moment about the perils of racism.  Hans and Ben discuss this problem from different practical and ethical points of view, including a personal experience standpoint. While they agree that there is no "one way" to confront this problem, they have a lively discussion about the moral and ethical dilemmas posed by the "racist" friends. They also identify their "red line" that should never be crossed. You don't want to miss this uncommon conversation!
