I really enjoyed Ajayi's and Smooth's discussions about engagement. In particular, Ajayi's three personal questions (about belief, defendability, and love) really helped me in distinguishing when to speak up about truth. Additionally, Smooth's discussion about mistakes and acts of respect and kindness also helped. I believe that the use of the word "mistake" may be very beneficial in addressing someone's racist statements. Further, Rietz's use of personal storytelling and narrative to reach others helped me in seeing how to hold calm conversations with other people I disagree with.
