Jamie Banks is half white. Or is he? What does it even mean?
Here, in a fabulously funny and thought-provoking speech, and through a reflection on his own personal journey, Jamie reflects on what it means to be white, half white, not white, and how our view of ourselves influences how we view others.
“…although I had been a victim of racism, I was racist myself”
Truly worth watching and thinking about.

Ka pai, Jamie – love your work.
