Accountable Bubble Statue

This week, Kam Raslan speaks to ABOC regulars, Julian Yap and Matt Armitage. Julian starts with the media’s responsibility in light of the recent report of Bon Appetit treating its POC staffs, especially its black staffs poorly. How can viewers hold themselves accountable? Then, Matt Armitage talks about travel and work bubbles moving forward from Covid-19. But what would happen to people that is excluded outside of the bubbles? Kam closes off with the topic of tearing down statues that has been happening lately. Maybe tearing down statues is not an erasure of history, it is history.
