In a time where discussions around activism has taken over the social media scene, the topic of oppression olympics has become a relevant one. Although not a new idea, the pitting of marginalized groups against one another has been a tool of oppression used in our country since its founding. Activist and writer Scot Nakagawa of ChangeLab joins us live in studio to talk about the effect of oppression olympics on identity politics and cultural change.
