In today's episode, we talk about the portrayals of minorities in the media. We discuss the #Oscarssowhite campaign and share our thoughts on how we feel that movement has impacted the media we consume today. We also talk about how the representation of minorities can not only affect how others see us, but can affect how we see ourselves. We share stories from our childhood about how we felt with the lack of being represented in the media. We end the conversation by sharing books that we think showcase diversity and will spark conversations in your own homes.Have you noticed a lack of representation in the tv and movies you watch?
