What is professionalism, really? In this episode, we’re joined by Darrie Matthew Burrage to explore where professionalism comes from, what it has to do with whiteness and capitalism, and what we feel it really SHOULD mean.


We’re exploring:

  • How Darrie made sense of his Blackness growing up in predominantly white spaces
  • The intersections of professionalism and whiteness
  • Where capitalism plays a role
  • The super dark side of whiteness
  • What we need to examine if we want to take white supremacist capitalism by the neck
  • This ONE thing that cannot coexist with freedom
  • “White people shit” — what it is and where it comes from
  • Darrie’s vision for the reframe of professionalism
  • Personal work standards
  • And more!
