Roland Martin Show Audio Podcast: Words Matter


Why do folks say we are looking for “qualified minorities?” Why the qualifier qualified? You ever heard someone say we want “qualified whites”?

Words matter and can be used to destroy the psyche of a people.

In this edition of The Roland Martin Show Audio Podcast, Martin discusses how words can be used to halt our progress individually and collectively as an African American community.

Words used against us can make us question our worth and demean us. Words can also be crafted to make us feel as though our companies and educational institutions are sub-standard.

Martin also talks about challenging assumptions about who we are as individuals and as a community.
