What’s the foundation of your life? John Hope Bryant poses this question to viewers during this Straight Talk Video segment. Although racism still exists, many of today’s societal issues stem from radical indifference, not hate or love. This is when someone or a group simply does not care enough about you to hate you. Bryant calls for a new movement to ignite systemic change in America — by responding with a purpose, not reacting emotionally to pain. “We need a software upgrade for a generation.” He urges society to shift the focus from the issues of race and the color line to the core issues of poverty and class.
“Life is 10% what life does to you, and 90% how you choose to respond to it.”
