I had to do some sleuthing to find the "Fistbook," but it does have some troubling elements: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1XHjFajb8vyzz6W_kQNc_2zfQ8Kuyi_G8/view

I found this TEDx talk from the instructor: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u6RjgXvQ1II and Today show feature: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MNx38Y8-C-I&t=177s I think it's worth watching them to humanize him. He seems like a kind, good-hearted guy who has deeply personal reasons for taking the stance he has taken, even though I disagree with the stance, and think that this content is likely to do far more harm to his cause than good. But I'd love to see, maybe, Melissa and Angel reach out to him for a podcast interview. I'd love to see FAIR reaching out more to pull people in to a humanistic approach to opposing racism. There is common ground to be found.
