There’s been a worrying rise in racism in Ireland over the past few years. But has it always been there just lurking under the surface or have we become more racist as a society? And why do media outlets insist on giving platforms to people like Justin Barrett and Peter Casey? Music journalist and author Dean Van Nguyen joins Rachel in studio to answer these questions as well as talking about his own experience of growing up Irish-Vietnamese and why the Irish music scene is giving a voice to those we don’t hear enough from.
Dean’s book Iron Age: The Art of Ghostface Killah is available HERE
