You Need to Change This About Yourself
We live in a society where everyone thinks their opinion and perspective on an issue is the right one. In this episode, we’re going to talk about Black Lives Matter, racism and our culture.

How to Stop Thinking in Extremes
We live in a culture of extremes where everything is polarizing. You’re either for something or against it. You’re either pro-this or anti-that. And in these extremes, everyone is shouting how their information, opinion and perspective is right—whether it’s about race, politics, social issues or economic issues.
At the root of this thinking is pride—regardless of where you stand, what you believe, which political party you're affiliated with, what your race is or where you live. That’s why I want to leave you with a challenge that will help you consider the possibility that you might not have all the answers and learn to value people who see things differently than you.
Black Lives Matter, Racism, and Our Culture—Let’s Talk About It
I sit down with my good friend, fellow Ramsey Personality and bestselling author Anthony ONeal to talk about racism and our culture, along with how to:
- Cultivate humility
- Lean into hard conversations
- Become more aware of your blind spots
- Appreciate perspectives different from your own
- Be a voice of unity
Do You Know Your Blind Spots?
“Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother's eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother's eye.” —Matthew 7:3–5 (NIV)
Here are some questions to ask yourself as you process these verses:
- What comes to mind when you think about the plank in your own eye?
- What are some questions you can ask to lean into the conversation and learn?
- What’s one practical way you’re going to demonstrate humility this week?
