Taxi Driver (and how James Baldwin shows us another way) S1 E16

In this episode we will take a look at how scapegoating and "othering" works itself out in the world.  The taxi driver Travis in the Scorsese film takes out his own self-hatred onto everyone around him.  In our world this can come out in forms of racism, misogyny, homophobia, and other forms of scapegoating.  I use the thoughts and words of James Baldwin to show another way that leads us towards empathy.
