DESCRIPTION: Systemic racism is a very complicated issue and a difficult topic to explain and/or understand. It’s much easier to argue that a particular officer or a particular judge or a particular legislator is racist, and insist that the governmental system itself is race neutral. In a recent Denver Post column, Reggie Rivers used an analogy about Rottweilers and Labrador Retrievers that helped people instantly see and understand the omni-present nature of systemic racism, and the persistent effect on the subjects of that bias. Reggie will share his perspectives on systemic racism, Black people’s centuries long fear of the police and how each of us can stop contributing to the asymptomatic spread of racism, sexism, anti-semitism and other isms.
SPEAKER: Reggie Rivers is the Founder and President of The Gala Team. He is a talented, quick-witted Master of Ceremonies and Auctioneer who has helped nonprofits raise tens of millions of dollars. Reggie is a former Denver Broncos running back (1991-1996).He was a 2-time Broncos NFL Man of the Year in recognition of his civic engagement. He earned a BA in Journalism from Texas State University (1991), and a Master’s Degree in Global Studies from the University of Denver (2007). Reggie worked in newspaper, radio and television for 25 years and has published six books.
