Replay: Racism is an Addiction
As we get ready to gather, in person or virtually, for one of our country’s more complicated holidays, we return to an episode about racism in the United States. Nzinga takes the opportunity to talk about how racism biologically and psychologically impacts our black and brown communities. Yes, this kind of chronic trauma leads to increased substance use disorders. But even more so, this episode explores how racism itself is the addiction of America.
Please note, In Recovery contains mature themes and may not be appropriate for all listeners.
