Wise was on Kamau Bell's show Totally Biased, and talked about the incident, and demonstrated that he learnt nothing. It starts about the 8 minute mark. Basically, on the anniversary of the Birmingham bombings, Wise posted about a guy who was run out of town for his solidarity, and then because a civil rights lawyer. He claims it was a "very important untold story of white solidarity", to which I say, bullshit.
It's great that that guy stood up for what was right, but to try to piggy back on a very significant and painful part of AA history to sing the praises of a white guy who did the right things is... missing the point. It's great he did that. It's awesome, but he doesn't get a cookie. Why is it so hard for people to understand that you don't get applause for being a decent person?
It gets worse after that including the "bombshell" that he isn't doing anti-racism work for PoC, (it's a common misconception dontcha know!) but because white supremacy is bad for his own children, which is just....
