    00:06 This next definition comes from the urban online dictionary, and it's called whitesplaining And I'm going to read that one to you as well directly.

    00:15 It's when a white person tells a person of color how to respond to rather or view a topic? Usually when discussing race, relations, or inequality.

    00:25 Unfortunately, I've seen that happen as well.

    00:27 I didn't know it had a name.

    00:28 So, it pleased me to know this wasn't something that was just in my head.

    00:33 But that is one of those things that conversations need to happen about because no matter what race you or gender you are, when someone tries to explain your experience to you, or gaslight you, or make you think what you experienced is something different than what you feel like it is it is offensive, and that does create some more conflict.

    00:54 So the conversations have to happen.

    00:57 The key in all of this is transparency and honesty.

    01:01 Another new, I guess, I'll call it an acronym is BIPOC, Black, Indigenous, and People of Color.

    01:11 That's another thing that has become semi-controversial because the experiences of each one of those groups of people are different.

    01:19 So, lumping all this together has created some controversy, right? So, sometimes, it's acceptable to use it but depending on the context, if something is specific to black people, we need to call it black.

    01:33 If it's specific to indigenous people, we need to talk about it from the indigenous people's perspective.

    01:40 And people of color. What are we talking about? That lumps in everybody else from ethnicities of color - Asian, Mediterranean.

    01:48 No, we need to talk about it specifically, and the impact or whatever the issue is or the situation specific to each group of people, rather than lumping people together.
