• DivergentBanner

DivergentThought is a show that offers varying perspectives on an array of issues. The society in which we currently live is rapidly devolving and our xenophobic nature often times causes many people to overgeneralize. With limited, if any direct experiences, some people engage in hyperbolic rhetoric that is not representative of the actual situation. All Latino people aren’t the same. All Black people aren’t the same. All white people aren’t the same. All athletes, entertainers, and musicians aren’t the same. DivergentThought, co-hosted by three diverse black men, attempts to offer thoughtful and maybe controversial insights into situations that impact our world. Just like you, we have our opinions. We might not be right, but we are prepared.
