Ep. 149 - Will Black Lives Matter Tomorrow? w/ Bilal Khan

Today on RNT Fitness Radio I’m joined by a special guest, Bilal Khan, who’s come back on the show after first appearing on episode 113 to talk all about some of the events happening in the world today. The big question we tackle is if black lives seem to matter today, will they matter to organisations, people and government tomorrow? As a diversity and inclusion expert, he says his job shouldn’t even exist in this world. Through the episode we talk about whether there’s a solution, what the accountability needs to be, protesting during covid, why he didn’t post a black square, and how to start tackling the deep rooted racism and stereotyping in society. This is an important conversation that I urge everyone to listen to right to the end, and then share it with someone who needs to hear it too.                     
‘’So a lot of people that started with the black square, amazing, but what are you doing next?’’
