By and for people of color, the Raci$m Is Profitable podcast is all about dismantling the assumptions that shape our lives — and limit our liberation. Your co-hosts, Jeremie Greer and Solana Rice, explore why racism is profitable in America and the economic, political, and popular culture structures that uphold systemic oppression. Guests include activists, policy advocates, and researchers who cut through the jargon and serve up straight talk that’ll put more power in your hands. Produced by Liberation in a Generation Action, we’re envisioning a new economy where people of color belong.
