We start out drinking a coffee that I roasted. We are continuing to work on getting our coffee up to a level where we are confident in offering it with the InkleDeux brand. We are hoping that will be around the beginning of the year, so keep an eye out for that.
Our topic is a continuation from last podcast, where we discussed representation. The conversation was heading towards the concept of white privilege, but we cut it off because we were already at an hour. We decided that this is an important enough topic that we should pick up on the next podcast, so here you go.
I’m not going to put a disclaimer or anything here. I’m sure there are silly people out there who think that because we are white, we are not allowed an opinion on this topic. That is asinine. I will say that this isn’t a scholarly dissertation, or a formal debate. We are two people having a conversation on a topic that matters. So, you will notice that we start in one place and end somewhere else. This is a journey, especially for me (Brandon). I had some revelations in here that I am still processing. I think this is a topic we will revisit down the road because there are pieces that we didn’t discuss fully or missed all together.
I encourage you to offer your insight here in the comments or on Facebook and Twitter (links above), and please share this with your friends. There are a lot of people who have a lot of thoughts on this and we want to hear them.
On the way to creating the best damn beverage shop in the Valley.
