It’s fair to get angry at bicyclists who don’t abide by the rules of the road, but it isn’t fair to compare that hatred to that of racism, sexism, and homophobia. Kennedy weighs in on an opinion piece written by cyclist Ruth Malone in the San Francisco Chronicle claiming just that.

Kennedy believes that it is intellectually lazy to claim that anything you dislike has deep seeded roots in racism, and is wary that it is, unfortunately, happening across so many elements of our cultural spectrum. She invites listeners to challenge outlandish claims while also acting with compassion and empathy.
