Before that, she spent just over six years as political staff in the municipal government of Toronto – first with former City Councillor Olivia Chow and then as Chief of Staff to City Councillor Gord Perks. During her time there, Shana spearheaded several City-wide policy initiatives in the areas of anti-racism, equity, immigration, employment, recreation, public health, poverty, and housing. Her forthcoming book Toronto the Good? Negotiating Race in the Diverse City discusses what the City of Toronto does with race and racism, to re-make itself as a beacon of democracy, racial inclusion, and progress.

Recently, Ms. Almeida and Mr. Barton were on our show talking about White Supremacy And The Exception To the Rule

During our conversation, they talked about:

– How they meet and why did they want to talk about this subject
– How embedded is white supremacy in our culture and the danger with people who think they are outside of it especially in academia
– White liberals feeling that they are above white supremacy
– BIPOC (Black Indigenous People Of Color) propping up white supremacy
– A world without white supremacy
