Darcy Staniforth and I continue our series with the discussion leading us to more prominent members of the Paranormal world and the problematic, racist and factually incorrect information that they spread. I have included two updates in this episode as I have corresponded with one of the people we talk about and since we recorded these (April 6, 2019) some big falling outs have happened with these people as well. Who knows what the future holds, but hopefully there is a place for civilized discussion and a space for education and even potentially for healing. In the meantime, those of us who consider ourselves a part of this world must continue to stand up for what is right and fight against outright racism and bigotry. It is hard enough to be in this world without this added obstacle to overcome when it comes to helping people understand we are not alone, death is an illusion, and there’s so much more to our reality than most of us consider.
