Kendipalooza #6: The Only Remedy to Past Discrimination is Present Discrimination | Berkeley (Sproul Plaza)
We’ve come to the final episode of Kendipalooza, our six-part series examining Ibram X. Kendi’s claim, “The only remedy to past discrimination is present discrimination.” In the previous conversation, the Armenian genocide was touched upon, but here, the students go more deeply into it—and Peter shares a story about how his Armenian grandmother survived the genocide. Three of the four students in this conversation are Armenian Americans.
The students also discuss the value of hearing contrasting viewpoints and the difference between education and indoctrination.
You can read Peter’s reflection on the claim and view the first conversation in the series here, the second here, the third here, the fourth here, and the fifth here.
If you watch all the episodes, let us know which conversation you think provides the most insight into the claim!
