A discussion on the crisis of white masculinity

Quite a few white men are having more than a bad day... Is ridiculing them the best we can do? A conversation with Dr. Randy Blazak on the crisis of white masculinity and on responding to it in other ways than from a position of intellectual superiority.

We also spoke with Barbara McCullough Jones, Executive Director at the Q Center, about efforts to enter into a dialogue with pastors from the Evangelical Mars Hill Church, an anti-Gay outfit which recently moved to SE Portland, a predominantly liberal neighborhood of Portland, OR.
