      What does it look like when school communities wrestle with racism past and present? Sounds Like Hate, a podcast from the Southern Poverty Law Center's Intelligence Project, explores situations of extremism in everyday life and how to move people away from hateful thinking. In a two-part episode titled "Not Okay," hosts Jamila Paksima and Geraldine Moriba step inside the overwhelmingly white Randolph Union High School in Vermont, where tensions over whether to replace a mascot with Ku Klux Klansman resemblance and whether to display a Black Lives Matter flag are dividing students, educators, and community members. The story offers lessons for navigating the complex, uncomfortable process of confronting systemic and local histories, centering student voices, and starting change-making conversations. "Not Okay" is available at https://soundslikehate.org/season-one/not-okay/.
