On Being a White Jerk
With permission by author M the Media Project
In the weeks On the Rocks Politica, we’re exploring the idea that white male candidates for office, in an effort to bring equity before the public, should bow out of races when their opponent is a BIPOC or female in order to support said candidate.
Co-host Scott M. Graves recently considered this concept following after reading it in a post by a peer on facebook. Her post ended with the statement, ‘Follow me for more lifestyle tips on how to not be a white jerk.’
What does it mean to bring equity to the table in a meaningful way in order to increase diversity in our municipal, state and federal leadership? Is it simply racist to consider this concept on face value? Will it bring equality to an often inherently racist, classist system?
What does co-host Bruce Chester, an african-american gentlemen who ran for state office in 2020 think about the concept?
This week we have you thinking about our system of governance and what it means to include all of us. That’s latest from On the Rocks Politica.

Scotts on the Rocks Politica is a political-centric broadcast that aims to lead through example.
Scott M. Graves is your host joined by a wide variety of guests from throughout the political spectrum and from a wide variety of disciplines.
Our intent is to provide rational and detailed discussion for listeners. We’re proving we have more in common and that we’re better together than torn asunder.
Our weekly podcast features careful examinations blendded with current events reporting from a national and local perspective.
If you appreciate local journalism with a global reach, if you want to cut through the BS and get right to the heart of the matter where it counts for your family our show was made for you.
With that in mind we’re launching an initiative we’re calling M The Media Project. This is a service of SMGraves Associates and over the months and years ahead we’re hoping to experiment with a variety of mediums, financial models and service delivery methods to deliver important news to a regional audience.
It is our hope that we will create successful media services companies, incubated right here in central Massachusetts that have the potential of becoming replicable.
