102 - Potstirrer SCOOPS!: National Deflection

In this episode, Jaye focuses on a particular argument politicians and pundits make when countries reckon with past and present incidents of national shame, which is that other countries also have shameful incidents in their histories. Jaye discusses why - although the thought experiment is intriguing - the argument itself is deflection which silences the marginalized. She contends that confronting historical and current realities, no matter how difficult or contentious, have individual and collective benefit that are worth the discomfort.
