How to Make FI More Inclusive | With Chris Browning of Popcorn Finance | Ep 216

Brad and Jonathan have a discussion with Chris Browning on systemic racism and how the FI community can be more inclusive.

There’s a difference between saying that I personally am not discriminating against anyone, versus I am actively speaking out against situations where I see others discriminated against…. I’m not even saying it’s easy. Cause I mean, there’s been situations where I’ve seen things that I thought were wrong and you just don’t feel the courage to do it. You don’t feel strong enough.

– Chris Browning
